I am a former user of the Logitech Revue unit for Google TV, which I have enjoyed very much, but its performance is not up to what the most modern units can provide and it's no longer getting upgrades, so the standard Google TV interface of the Hisense Pulse (fewer delays in getting updates from Google) and its promises of better performance appealed to me. The unit does perform very well overall - much faster performance than the Revue, with HDMI 1.3 standards compatibility for higher quality video output for those units that are also using this newer standard for digital video. The software on the Pulse includes the new Mini-Guide for the Google TV Primetime app, which recommends content that I might like. The remote is actually quite nice, I could quibble with the placement of some of the buttons but overall it's quite usable, with the flip-side keyboard working fine and the touchpad for Web browsing having a nice grippy surface and simple scrolling and tap-clicking. The shortcut buttons to the Web, Netflix and other key programming sources are also handy, not too many of them and not too big, either, so they're not annoying. I also like the keyboard on the reverse side of the remote, nice size for people used to phones or tablet keyboards, and it includes the joystick input controls, home button, back button, options menu and PIP control also found on the front of the remote. Ideally the touchpad would be on the same side, but that's a relatively minor hardship to get a good, single-hand remote.

If there's one place where the Pulse is weak it's in the setup. A few things to make sure of when you're setting it up: 1) make sure to plug in the IR blaster ALL the way into the back of the unit.

Before I review, I just want to say that Amazon is awesome. They upgraded me to free overnight shipping right before Christmas. Although Ontrac lost my package, Amazon shipped another one out to me and I had it in two days. Their customer service is great. Keep it up Amazon!

I was really looking forward to this device from Hisense. I waited for it to be released for a couple of months and it wasn't available just a week before Christmas, so I ended up with a Roku 2 XD. My intent was always to gift it to my mom, but I also wanted to check out Google TV for myself.

One potentially cool feature that this box appears to support is the integration of live tv into the search function. It has a HDMI in, which you connect from your Cable box or Satellite service. However, this feature is useless if you are a cord cutter, like me ( and like I'm setting my mom up to be - saving her over $100 a month ). This box would have much more value if it supported over the air HD broadcasts via a built in HD tuner.

GTV = Google TV.

GTV supports Netflix, as does the Roku.
GTV doesn't support Hulu Plus. Roku does.
GTV doesn't support NBA League Pass. Roku does.
GTV supports Youtube, Roku does not.
GTV has Chrome (I'll elaborate more on this), Roku does not have a web browser.

Pulse remote is busy. I had some problems early on with typing letters repeating themselves rapidly. It was a problem, although they may have fixed this with an update? The touch pad is pretty cheap feeling and it doesn't work that great. Navigating in general can be awkward at times, especially with options and going backward. I could live with the remote and I like that it has a keyboard on it. My mom hated the remote. The Roku remote is extremely simple and my mom loves it.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I got this Google TV device for review from Amazon and hooked it up with my aging Samsung HPT4254 42-Inch Plasma HDTV which is a non SMART TV and I am pleased to inform that the unit performs flawlessly and in most cases better than Logitech Revue which I also own for several years.

If you are already familiar with Google TV interface since they released Honeycomb 3.2 version of their operating system you will find that this unit adheres to that perfectly by the book and performs faithfully with full integration of Google TV based apps and services from Google TV.

The Hisense Pulse unit is very small and has no cooling fans and works silently which I find superior to the Logitech revue which is bulky, outdated and discontinued. The beauty of this device is the remote that comes with it. I find the remote very easy to use albeit better that the full size QWERTY keyboard that Logitech revue has. I wished the placement of the back button somewhere I can get to use my thumb but those are minor issues and I can get used to the remote pretty easily.

The Bluetooth based remote's touch-pad is very responsive supports single click, double click by tapping using one finger and scrolling side to side up and down and super easy to navigate using the Google Chrome browser that is built into the operating system from Google. The remote may be little bit bigger for small hands but for me it was a perfect remote by any standards.
