FYI - this is a DEAD PRODUCT now.

Summary: Only leaving this review because this item is still for sale and obviously people are still buying it. The Boxee team has dissolved. They went to work for Samsung. Updates to this box are not going to happen. The forums have shut down, development stopped, and bugs aren't going to get fixed.
Summary: My first choice for a media streamer would have been an Apple TV running XBMC. I had a first-gen one in which I had crammed a larger HDD and one of the Broadcom decoder cards to do 720p using XBMC but one sad day it died.
Summary: I don't think I would buy this again. It does play Netflix and the videos that I download from the internet. They have dropped support for this to create a new product without making this a polished product. I ask myself "does this product do what it was created for." The answer here is... well...
Summary: I have used Boxee Desktop software before it was discontinued, when it was still in Beta. I remember it being quite functional and snappy. So recently I've decided to buy a Boxee Box. I read online that it supports HBO GO, Netflix, VUDU, AirPlay and many other services.
Summary: I ordered a Boxee Box with the hopes it would handle our needs. Unfortunately, it fell short in four areas that were critical for us: 1. With no way to provide user supplied metadata, things that IMDB can't find become accessible only when browsing by files.
Summary: I received the Boxee Box day one and was very excited. I have been running Boxee for about 6 months now, ever since I cut the cord for TV. My primary use was local content and Netflix. When I heard about the Boxee Box I thought it was going to be great.
Summary: I'm sure the Boxee Box will be a great product someday, but right now it feels like a beta product...and I felt like a beta tester. Pros 1) I really like the design of the hardware. It's unconventional, but it does look cool.
Save your money for now -unit has lots to be added to make it worth the current $$$

Summary: Update 2 July 2011: Well I refrained from adding more to this review until I felt the majority of the firmware updates were complete.i.e adding NETFLIX and HULU etc as well as a software update. Well they are complete.. and I am sorry to say I am still not impressed.
