Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Well built, nice design, powerful, ready to use from the box.
Cons:
Recognized as "mobile device" (not tablet) by websites and some applications (e.g. Vimeo). That means you are offered low quality video and mobile phone interface (very small video thumbnails, for example) while you expect more, being connected to full HD TV set. Fortunately, Youtube app is able to offer HD for this device.
Other:
Full HD BDRemux file (video bitrate ~17685 kbps, audio ~768 kbps) is not played smoothly from external HDD. Full HD mkv files with lower bitrates (e.g. ~12.9 Mbps avg) work fine.
Bottomline:
Great device, but, please, engineers, make it recognizable as tablet by apps and websites!
