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

Pros:
Easy to update firmware XBMC really works but it is not so responsive & fast as the other video apps available. Fast & stable (if you prevent it to get hot) WIFI works properly. Good cost effetiveness
Cons:
Casing gets really hot(not warm), especially if you do not use any HDMI extension cables and leave it behind your TV where it will be really stuffy. As I live in Rio de Janeiro, in summer, air conditioning is a must, otherwise it is probably going to burn. It does only have one USB hub which is a pain in the ass to me as I cannot plug in my external HD & air mouse at the same time. A powered USB hub does the trick.
Other:
Despite its issues, I do not regret buying it as it is the fastest processor in the market to date.
Bottomline:
It might be the best on the market today, but it has much room for improvement.
