Logitech Revue Thoughts

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Can I get a few impressions of this from people who have and use it. I really want to try this out and for $99 you can't go wrong. Just need a few thoughts/impressions of Google TV to help make up my mind.

And does anyone have the new units that come with Honeycomb?

Thanks OCN

i had one, paid $99 for it at best buy.

garbage

it only plays a handfull of formats and the media player is rubbish as far as user interface. the cable integration is pretty cool, but didn't work right on my uverse moto box. hulu is blocked from the revue, as well as a few other sites.

the honeycomb update is coming in a few weeks, but i really don't think it will solve the trash media player which was my biggest gripe.

the keyboard however, was awesome, and i wish i could get one for my htpc.

all in all, don't get it, it's not worth it. for $99, you can get the wdtv live or PBO or something that would serve you more formats and look better on screen doing it.

For $99 you can get the Pivos Aios. It plays almost every format and has a few nice extras like bittorrent:

I've had my Revue since last December and I love it. I've been patiently waiting for my 3.1 release, but no luck yet. Android marketplace should really open up the platform though. And you already said it " for $99 you can't go wrong."

I bought it at $250 and I still say it was worth it!
