Summary: if you like flip-flapping around with remote control to point and click flip one side to click on reply flip other side to type flip back to other side to send-- to type e-mails then this internet player for you.
Summary: If you're looking to eliminate your t.v. bill, this will NOT be a good alternative. To enjoy it, properly, will end up paying Netflix, Hulu, Amzn Prime, etc, etc, to watch your movies and shows. The plus to this is, in the long run, that your monthly t.v.
Pros: Well... it's free t.v. and I suppose you get what you pay for.
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: I purchased this item instead of a Roku 3 because of the web broswer capacity. I was a little wary because the app system of the Apple Tv and the Roku make jumping around simple and easy, but I was hopeful.
Summary: A couple of weeks after a seamless installation and setup the audio started lagging behind the video. I'd reboot the GS8 and it would start working correctly again. Then, an issue began where I'd be watching something on my DVR, fast forward the show and the audio would be gone.
Summary: I'm using logitech Revue for the past two years. I thought this will be an upgrade but very disappointed with the purchase. Remote was not working well. its clunky and very slow. If you already have a Google tv don't think about it.
Audio and Video out of sync and could not get resolved.

Summary: I bought this unit and I'm returning it because no matter what media I played the audio and video are out of sync. The audio is behind the video. I tried using the av-sync tuning parameters but had no success. The problem is with content from this box. Using another input source, the TV is fine.
Summary: The positives: ================ - Supports Netflix - Has a Chrome browser - Converter has a QWERTY keyboard that even has a backlight - When the Netflix app does work, it is very fast. - Supports DLNA The negatives: =============== - Many times Netflix just wouldn't start up.
Summary: This item has some design flaws. Alphanumeric key pad on remote does not work reliably. Reliability can be improved by standing right next to the box, which of course makes it a non-remote! But even doing that does not make it near 100%. Keys are often unresponsive.
