    Yeah, I understand and I bet you made the right choice. I was just wondering how it compared to my Boxee Box for list of apps

    Picked up a Mini Controller $49 a couple days ago, (down from $129). I have stopped using the original keboard completely! Best Buy also had the Revue with camera for $129, It was $150 for just the camera before. Anyway I use a Roku and a Revue on the same TV. The Roku has a simpler interface and many more channels, (350+) but I can browse and get internet content on the Revue not available on the Roku.

    The original price was questionable. However, for $99 the Revue is pretty nice. I just got one, and while not perfect, I think it's a pretty nice piece. I hope the OS is eventually updated, but even if it is never updated, I think the product is plenty useable. I love being able to surf the web while watching TV in a PinP window, for example.

    I guess it depends on your lifestyle.

    Yes, this is awesome. Also, slapping up a movie trailer via YouTube is awesome. YouTube has a lot of HD content now.

    Logitech not only botched the release of this product, they've totally screwed the pooch with the update. Slow to release, no word on timeframe, no communication at all.

    I'm not giving up on my Harmony remotes and Logitech keyboards, but I won't buy any new products from them without seriously considering other options first.

    I was wanting one when it came out but the price was too high and now they have dropped the price but was lacking in features. Now it looks like Logitech is abandoning the Revue so I may have to look to getting a different Google TV device. I hear Samsung and someone else will be releasing Google TV devices next year....

    With Logitech dumping the Revue, I am hearing a lot of stories that apps and things in it have stopped working. Can anyone who owns one confirm that? I was thinking of buying one for the Google TV, but won't if this is happening. I would get a Sony Blu Ray with Google TV, if that is the case.

    I have two of them, and nothing has changed since I got them. Just got through watching a two-part episode of "Above Suspicion" from Acorn TV on one of them.

    There was an update to the GTV firmware/software. No problem with the older GTV, but my newer one became bricked. Apparently I am not alone - at this point I don't think Logitech or Google have determined if there is a solution.

    That stinks, what are they going to do? If units are bricking and no new units are going to be built

    I finally broke down and bought a Revue. The price has started going back up on them. Must be getting near the end of them.

    After I set it up, it crashed a few times and after an unplug reboot, it has been working just fine. Happy with the unit so far.

    Has anyone heard of we will see any chance of getting MLB-TV on the Revue?
