Summary: I bought the Boxee Box after doing extensive research, preparing to "cut the cord." For the first six months or so, the device was all I could ask for. It did exactly what it was I wanted, and it performed in a manner that justified the significantly higher costs than Roku and other devices.
Summary: Seems to working alright. Had to return the first one that froze at the intro screen after a week. Still a little high priced for what it is. Too bad it is at end of life, it would have benefitted from a little more refinement.

Summary: Pros: - For what it is (a budget streaming platform?), it does the job really well. - Perfect if you have your own file server. - Easy connections: HDMI, optical audio, etc. Cons: - You cannot have more than one in the same house because the remotes control affects all Boxees within range.
Excerpt: Does exactly what is advertised. I truly like the mini keyboard remote combo. Plays every little thing I want it to. Anything it does, it does a very good job of for the most component, but demands a small much more polish (see cons).Incredibly cheap.It runs open supply application, and as an IT...
