Sony DVD Changer for Media Center PC’s

Sony DVD Changer
Sony has come up with their VGP-XL1B2 DVD Changer which can store up to 200 DVD’s. This changer can be used with Media Center 2005 Update Rollup 2 and connects via Firewire port. One great feature about this $800.00 unit is that it allows to daisy chain up 4 other changers adding upto a capacity of 1000 DVDs. But wouldn’t it just be easier to store everything on a hard drive or an array of hard drives instead of stacking up 5 changers?
