    "Logitech told investors this week that it is preparing to slash the price of its Revue Google TV set-top box to just $99, down from $249. The price cut is meant to “remove price as barrier to broad consumer acceptance,” it stated in its investor slides."

    Commentary Here

    "Get 'em while they're cheap, folks. It costs Logitech more than $99 to assemble the Revue, so don't expect this price point to last forever (one way or the other). If you've ever been interested in checking out GoogleTV, you aren't going to beat this offer."

    Now there are some rumors out there saying that the original article quoting $99 may have been a typo........ Stay tuned (no pun intended).

    And I wonder if you have to buy the Keyboard separately?

    The original article referred to the Revue, and the Revue does come with a keyboard. It looks more and more like the $99 is going to happen, along with a software update to the Honeycomb operating system.

    And from Tiger with free shipping:

    http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-Details.asp?EdpNo=7106070&sku=L23-4000


    I'm not really sure what it would do for me though.

    I just got an email from Logitech with an incredible offer. I can pick one item from their web site and take 50% off. No shipping. No tax. A legit 1/2 price deal!

    I can get the Revue for $49.50. Or anything else for 1/2 price.

    Gotta think about this one............. :eek:

    I got an email from them with a code in it to use at checkout. My guess is I received it because of previous purchases I made with them. There is no link to the deal that I know of.

    OK, I got the offer with the 50% off code, but when I started reading up on the device, it appears it only works with a set-top-box? It won't work streaming from the web only?

    Sledge, I don't know the answer to that. I ended up getting something other than the Revue with my coupon.

    If someone here doesn't know the answer, perhaps the Logitech forums will have your answer.

    I tried to use the 50% off promo on the Revue. Nothing happened. I then read the small print...

Savings apply to, and are only available on, items displayed on Logitech.com. Offer not valid on Logitech Revue or in conjunction with any other discount or offer.

    Interesting. Back when I got my code the Revue was not excluded. I even had it in my cart at $49 and change and then changed my mind. If I remember correctly, the Revue dropped in price right around the same time I received my code.

    I picked one of these up for $99... I like it, but am waiting for the Honeycomb update. I'm looking forward to it.

    Have owned a Revue since the day it was launched. Must say a major disappointment. Anyone know more about the timing of the new software they promised?

    My guess is 'sooner' rather than 'later'. See this article dated October 27th:

    Athlon646464 did you ever break down and buy one?

    No. I had a great offer from them, too. It was 50% off on a number of things they sell, with free shipping and no tax. I opted for their G35 gaming headset and gave it to my daughter after reading reviews of the Revue.
