no lossless audio. Limited to 16bit 48Khz quality which is pretty low considering many movies are mastered at 24bit 96Khz now.

Plus you can't play from a hard drive anymore (by default anyway) so all that storage is not going to do a whole lot of good.

Damn shame they didnt put an hdmi port on the back. I would never want to rely on dvi->hdmi cable.
