Video files played smoothly all the way up to 1080p no matter what the format or container and we had no problems streaming 480p QuickTime movie trailers, though HD YouTube files struggled a little at 720p being watchable but clearly not running as smoothly as they did at 480p. The Edge also proved good for a quick banzai around Quake Live, though the gaming experience was dampened by the Edge's two lackustre 1w speakers.

Of course, both those tests are pretty brutal and not really indicative of day-to-day performance.
