Summary: I'm surprised that so few people know about this! It handles Netflix, VUDU, and other streaming services, but most important (to me) is that it will pull shows and music off of network shares, in our case a Synology NAS. This gives us access to our library very conveniently with very little effort. It's an amazingly slick device.
If you have just a little bit of techno-savvy, buy it!

Summary: Just got the Boxee. Nice boot-up and a bunch of useful connections on it, but you all ready know that. Tons of stuff to watch and listen to, but it's more powerful then that. Supe it up! 1. Get rid of that Western Digital Media Player. WD's nice, but Boxee does it better. Keep that hard drive dock, because you can hook that up to Boxee. 2. Add Navi-X. I can't stress this enough. YOU ARE GOING TO GET FAT IF YOU PUT NAVI-X ON YOUR BOXEE!
Summary: I love this set top box. Pros: Boxee Box is not limited with DRM content like Apple TV. It plays any file you throw at it. Thanks to its apps and web browser, it has a virtually limitless variety of online content. Watch later function is simply amazing. It's a breeze to stream videos from your Mac or Pc to your Boxee Box with Boxee Media Manager software. And it simply rocks with a Put.io account. I couldn't possibly want more.
Excerpt: I bought the Boxee 1 year ago. Since their last version, I am happy to say that this was the best choice for a Media streamer. it has all the online content like all others, its easy, quite and has a cool remote. great buffering so no lag on wi-fi streaming on 720p/1080p media I have very happy...
