USB switch thingers

im getting sick of unplugging my external hdd from my pc and plugging it into my ps3 to watch vidyas and then having to switch plugs back to transfer more shit on there. so, i was looking at getting something that i could just hit a button to switch betwixt the two things, making my life a bit easier. something like this cheapo thinger . but, before i take the plunge and drop that $7, i want to be sure that it will work out fine for streaming vidyas (most of which are 720p) and not fuck up for some reason (i dont know exactly why.. bandwidth or some bs maybe?)

so yeah. will that work or do i need some other magic box bullshit that probably costs more money?

a device like that rings alarm bells for me. why not just host a media server on the pc?

I have never used one or seen one in action. I do have usb to ethernet devices that work well and you can use them with any pc and most devices connected to a network, but they are more than 7 bucks. For 7 bucks ... maybe go for it.
