I received my 6x two days ago, and contemplated the same points. I don’t have cable as I find regular TV to be a waste of time. I download 60+ gigs per month (average) of documentaries, movies new and old, TV shows worth watching etc. Now when I opened my LG 6x box and saw the 25 gig disk it came with, I was really tempted to install it to my PC. But all of what I watch goes directly from my server PC to my TV screen via S-Video connection. I used to convert and burn all my downloads to DVD, but it’s just a waste of time. For me viewing all my movies directly from hard drive is best. Many people now are seeding torrents from bluray discs in their entirety. If you spend the money for a decent HD graphics card, and run it directly from your PC you eliminate the need for discs and burners. That’s how I justify the slaughter of my 6x anyway...
SOOOOO... I think I'm going to use it for a few months, get a good blu-ray collection going, and then gut it
