You won't find any EVA9150 users here as it's not capable of using SwissCenter. The EVA700 is still a capable player with SwissCenter, unless you require HD support with MKV files, and YouTube, Apple Trailers.

Personally if I were looking for a EVA700 replacement right now then I'd probably seriously consider the new PCH-A200. Really depends on your requirements. Do you want a locked down plug and play device or something capable of running SwissCenter?
