Google TV Player 4.0 – Android 4.0 Google TV Player w/ 1GB RAM / 4GB ROM / HDMI / YUV / Coaxial / CVBS / Ethernet / Wi-Fi Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Android based. If you are an Android user, then it makes sense. Played every file I have except .VOB. Played but choppy. Plugged in MS wireless keyboard/mouse 5000 and it worked right away! 2.5" Sata bay in bottom nice feature.
Cons:
WiFi is pathetic. 20ft from router and won't work. Instructions are useless, and print too small. Needs downloadable .pdf Keyboard sensitivity is too high and can't find where to adjust.(sensitivity fine for computer or other media players) Video output to both HDMI and A/V required a bit of playing, but got it working. Some icons don't run ie YouTube - have to go through a browser.
Other:
One final thought, why didn't this come with Chrome as the browser? Instead it comes with iExplorer??? I wouldn't want this unit without a mouse!
Bottomline:
For the price, it plays well and displays well. Some software adjustments would make this a fantastic media player. Think tablet on your TV!
