I can't comment on the update system, but I can say that from my
experience with 2 or 3 of them at various times, they are pieces of junk.
The DVD drive is prone to screwing up, same for the hard drive and system
board. Lockups are common as well as boot failures.
You literally have to keep a couple around as donor units to scavenge
parts from in order to keep one of them running.
I have an original Nintendo, original Atari game console and an old
Playstation and all still work fine.
