Yes, buffering is to be used when you play movies from CD/DVD, HDD, LAN/NETWORK etc.
This way BS.Player load the movie in memory and the data can be read more seldomly (and smootly), plus if used for CD/DVD these drives will be used for a less amount of time and the noise they produce is reduced

For buffer size I don't know, I think you have to try different settings..
Side effects are that it takes a more time before the movie starts playing (since it has to be buffered before )

Is anyone really using that buffering feature? Do you use that J7N?

Does buffering affect cpu usage (by increasing that)?

For fragmented drives, Windows's standard defragmenter does not complete %100, you have to use 3rd party software to complete all defragmention.
