I love reading Ganesh’s work because he’s one of the few reviewers (not on Missing Remote of course) that really gets HTPC.  They are always incredibly detailed and this look at ASRock’s CoreHT 252B is no exception.  You’ll have to read it through to get his thoughts, but I am pleased to see that this generation of CoreHT’s is much […]
