I needed a media box and had so many to choose from....Logitech Revue, Roku and Boxee. I originally was going with the Logitech Revue but it concerned me that they we going to stop any production of the product line. It was shaky whether they will continue with support on the Revue. The Roku is very popular and very affordable but from what I understand, it doesn't let you access your network hard drive. I always had the Boxee Software on my PCs. I was always a big fan of the interface that they use...(very cool and complete). I seen that they are nearing adding a tv tuner; Very big deal in January! When I installed the Boxee Box I did have issues getting the device to find my hard drives. I called customer support and I got the customer service rep from India (These guys are always so hard to understand). THey didn't help but i was able to figure it out none the less. They do need have some flaws. I wish they upgraded their devices to include something that is capable of taking dual band....they're is some but not always buffering issues (I think getting the 5g band would solve this) .The list of application is on the short end i.e. Netflix, Pandora and Vudu is available. No Hulu Plus or Amazon Prime. I love Milkdrop as part of their music player. I love the interface for my my movie collection. Complete with cover art and synopsis. Over all I am content with the Boxee. I will upgrade with the TV tuner and hope that amazon prime is coming soon.
