    but flash drives are hardly suitable to run games off...

    Its not impossible. but load times will be real bad, let alone the game loading at all due to missing files or DRM protection.

    Older games like Quake or UT99 should be fine though. UT99 will run off anything, hours worth of fun with friends.

    Show me a full 1080p Blu-ray in a house with concrete and I'll be impressed.

    If it can do 1080p through normal walls I'll think it is very good, and 1080p in the environment of that video, I'd say good.

    If anything over 720p is choppy then it would suck.

    It is pretty easy to use for the average joe
