- The microSD/TransFlash slot requires the card to be inserted very deeply, so a tool is needed for both insertion and extraction. (But it's probably going to stay in there always anyway, so who cares?)
- USB Webcam is not supported by the provided kernel, so can't be used as a web-phone.
The perfect Media Center took only a few hours to set up after the hardware arrived.
My recommendations are:
* XBMC "Frodo" with NAVI-X plugin, and various live TV plugins.
* PPStream Tablet
* PPTV pad
In a few hours with this product I had twice more features that I wanted then after several days hacking away on my Apple TV.
This product gives me everything I need for my every day media needs, and has a very high value to the money ratio. Highly recommended.
