Unlike the M300, the M500 can play back Blu-ray discs. It can also import from Blu-ray, DVD and CD right onto your server. The problem with the server system is that you can't go without your Blu-ray discs. You'll still need your discs physically present in one of your connected players in order to play back the content. It's something Kaleidescape acknowledges, and they're hoping to correct it by bringing out a disc loader that would hold a large amount of discs.
You can pick up the M300 now at a price of $2,495, while the M500 will set you back $3,995. The players will start shipping out on May 18th.
