Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Excellent video quality in 720p video file, extrapolates neatly to 1080p. Good audio through PCM (you don't find many devices supporting PCM these days). Very fast response to commands.
Cons:
I don't see support for any language either than English and Chinese, though it's advertised as supporting a bunch. WiFi reception is weak, while my Lenovo laptop, in the same spot, gets excellent reception. Perhaps that's why I can't see anything in Youtube. I get the menu, but when I click a movie it times out.
Other:
I still didn't try the remote. I wish it would come with an application that allows me to use my android phone as a mouse and keyboard, as there are for most brands like Toshiba and Sony. Probably there's one in Google Play, but instead of me trying them one by one, they could just point me to the right one.
Bottomline:
A little expensive in its class, but dead cheap if you compare what we used to pay until a year ago for any kind of player. And this is a computer!
