Pros:
Works well as a media player with XBMC. Plays 720p video's rather well, has difficulties with 1080p. Affordable. Portable. Does not get hot.
Cons:
Very poor WiFi reception! Have to put it really close to the access point. Same for bluetooth keyboard (basically unusable).
Other:
It's a nice device, but has some drawbacks, like not being able to play 1080p movies well. Youtube-app can't play completely full screen, but XMBC can and looks really nice. The poor WiFi reception is somewhat annoying. Have to put it real close to the access point. In general it's a funny device.
Bottomline:
I would have hoped for more. It doesn't work well with the bluetooth keyboard I bought with. Again, probably a 'wireless range-issue'. Have to keep the keyboard extremely close to the device. On the other hand, as a gadget it is still fun.
