I changed from a Roku, which was very easy to use.
The PS3 was easy to set up and easy as pie to connect to Twonky, but I'm not convinced yet about the PS3 as a machine - there are plenty of other boxes that can do what I'm asking of it (apart from BD and games, but I have no BD discs or PS3 games anyway) and it's noisier than I expected - in a media rack with a lot of space on all sides and top the fan comes on at top speed after watching a DVD for 20 minuutes, making the film unwatchable.

I've never been fond of the cross-media bar, especially when you have multiple folders deep for music, movies, etc. I hope they change it someday to normal menus. Even my receiver has a better navigation system (it can play media from Twonky over the network as well.)

I am not sure what some people are doing to their PS3's but yea, it's not silent, but unless you're sitting in complete silence trying to watch a movie a extremely low volume, it shouldn't even be a complaint. I don't understand.

I understand that Video transcoding is a whole lot more demanding on a system and can be a nightmare dealing with codecs, but for audio it shouldn't be hard, no?

So, my response is MIXED.

I do not want to change the files from Vobs to something else. Will Twonky play Vobs on the PS3? If not I'm off back to my 360 which can do hat is written on the tin!!!
Please help Thanks

You need to stick to the supported formats, anything else, you are in trouble, same with ANY streaming hardware. Infact, the PS3 has wider support than all the other consoles and most dedicated video streaming clients.
If you stick to these, you will be fine:
