Expert Review

Cellfanatic
6 August 2011
  • Conclusion: In the event that it falls short of expectations, the Android 3.1 update coming later this year should do a good job of addressing many of its shortcomings.  By that time, however, Logitech might be ready to release the second-generation Revue which will include a faster (possibly dual-core)...

Logitech Revue with Google TV (TPV 98)

AVguide
14 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Over the course of modern culture, some brand names fall into the vernacular. About to sneeze? Grab a Kleenex. Need to vacuum? Head for the Hoover. Want a soda? How about a Coke? Want to find specific content on the Internet? More often than not we’ll simply say, “Google it.”

  • Excerpt: The concept of viewing content from the internet on your TV is not a new idea. HTPCs (Home Theater PCs) have been around since 1993, but have had limited success due to their cost and complexity to operate.

Logitech Revue with Google TV

PC Magazine
1 February 2011
  • Conclusion: Not as seamless as Apple TV, but armed with far more potential, the Logitech Revue with Google TV is a giant, if occasionally shaky, leap forward in home entertainment.
  • Pros: Integrates personal media, DVR recordings, on-demand, and Web content into one attractive, easy-to-search interface on your HDTV. Chrome browser and Flash support for full Internet experience. Support for Logitech Harmony remotes.
  • Cons: Keyboard remote is awkward to use in some scenarios. Set-up can be a bit involved. Setting up streaming from a networked PC can be a pain. Integration of third-party apps with remote is not great.

Straight out of the box, the Logitech Revue offers Google TV interactivity, and unlike the flat-screen TV in your living room that’s probably already feeling...

Review: Logitech Revue with Google TV

Wired
27 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Google TV has landed! Er … sort of. Even though the future of the video-aggregation and search service might look uncertain, Logitech has loosed its flagship Google TV set-top box — the Revue — for living rooms everywhere. Like most set-top boxes, the Revue isn’t much to look at.
  • Pros: A smart way to bring the online video to the big screen. Integrated search is a boon to listless channel hoppers. Plays nice with both satellite and cable DVRs. Compatible with a slew of other Logitech remotes and peripherals. Ships with HDMI cable. Easy setup. Viewing Gmail and Twitter in 50 inc...
  • Cons: Availability of web video is at the mercy of content providers. Drab and uninspired looks. Network slowdowns = visible artifacts and buffering. Handles multitabbed browsing about as well as a smartphone.
