I still like this better then the roku because it has HDMI through
18 October 2014
Summary: Did not come with voice response remote. I still like this better the roku because it has HDMI through. It does have an android app that does voice. I found out that you can pair the Logitech Revue keyboard with this as long as you buy the Unifying receiver dongle.
Summary: I travel a lot for business. The problem with traveling on business is that the hotels are never consistent in what channels are available and at times, even the reception can be sketchy - especially in foreign countries where channels in English may be non-existent.

Cons: First of all, this lame beast is SLOW. It, probably, has a Pentium II processor, at best. The OS is erratic and unstable and to top it off, pretty much all of the "free t.v." sites are just about crippled from heavy user traffic and prolific usage of add media.
Summary: My family has used our Sony/Google TV for over a year now. We consider our options carefully before booting this device though as one never knows how it is feeling at any given time. It flat out does not work about half the time. We only use one app, Amazon Video, and always clean boot.
Summary: Wow. I'm running an older version of Windows on one PC on my network in one room that doesn't have full internet capabilities: put it this way, it DIDN'T, but it does now.
