I have several Raspberry Pi model B's that I use as media servers for their h264 full 1080p hardware abilities.

I'd go with the Pi 2 (I have one of those), as it supercedes everything else, unless you specifically want something without an ethernet port, etc. The extra cores make it difficult for any one process to lock up the Pi, which can happen with the previous versions. Also, the extra RAM is a blessing.

Because I don't use X on mine and just use omxplayer and ssh into it for everything, all of them are quite snappy.

One thing that I just am not satisfied with is getting enough power to the USB ports. On all of them I've used, a single device can suck up all the current available and more... So expect glitches from wireless cards, external harddrives... unless you have an actual *GOOD* quality powered USB hub. Without a powered hub, forget trying to connect a non-powered HDD for example. That's not to scare you away from the Pis -- the 1080p video pays for itself over and over and over and over, just be aware of the problem.
