I remember watching the video announcement and I liked it a lot. But the price is a little high and there are other options out there. If you use iOS an Apple TV for 100$ is an awesome companion device that stream all your iCloud content like music, movies and rented stuff and allows to mirror your iOS device and has obviously TV services. Or maybe even Google Chromecast which is only 30$ and can also do some of that stuff.

If this is too much for you guys then go to geekbuying and check out some of the android media sticks. I've seen reviews for a majority of them and they are very capable devices. Gaming is a blast on them since android supports controllers. Emulators anyone? That's what I'd mainly buy an android media box for old school gaming.

Its a nice piece of hardware, but a bit expensive. Last week I bought the Samsung Smart Blu-ray for 120$ from wallmart, and it is just great. Not just that it turns your tv into a smart one, but the screen mirroring option comes in handy. So you can also use it as an android tv box.
