Logitech Revue Companion Box with Google TV and Keyboard Controller

While I think the price point should have been closer to $200, I am overall very satisfied with Google TV, using the Logitech Revue box and keyboard. I am an Android phone user as well and the OS used in Google TV is very similar. The set up was easy and intuitive. One note: You do need an HDTV, high-speed internet (wired or wireless), and a cable box with HDMI cable inputs to take full advantage of all Google TV has to offer. And while the box comes with 1 HDMI cable, you will need at least one more. I am not completely sold on using the keyboard to control the DVR, although it is possible. There is a free Harmony app for Android phones (iPhone coming soon, I believe) that is an added bonus.

I won't be getting rid of my laptop, but will be using it a whole lot less! If you use the internet for games, Facebook, searching, shopping, photos, videos, etc., then having quick access to that using the full Google Chrome browser while in your living room, is a no-brainer. I enjoy the integration of my DVR content with internet searching, if I search for "Desperate Housewives" it shows me not only my recordings on the DVR, upcoming shows in the guide, as well as related websites and other references. Neat. I like the Pandora application so I can listen to music through my stereo, surf the web, and watch the local news in picture-in-picture, all at once.

I look forward to having more application options (Google is aggressively pursuing developers to create apps for Google TV like they do for the Android Marketplace).

UPDATE: 8/2/2012: (3 star taken back to 5)

So I called logitech support and once again got right through to them. The customer service rep on the line suggested a factory reset which fixed the issue. I wanted to do this myself, but I was worried the network error might stop it from going through the setup steps so I waited to be on the phone with support prior to doing so. It fixed my problem and i am back to enjoying my google tv's (have one for each tv cause tv is not the same without it). At this stage I would reccomend the sony boxes with google tv since they are still making theirs and get updates, not to mention the current sony has a dual core 1.2ghz processor so it would be a lot faster than the revue...but for what the revue has offered me so far, I stick with the 5 star rating.

UPDATE 07/11/12: (5 star rating lowered to 3)

I have two revues right now, one for living room and one for bedroom and I love using them.... however, I recently changed cable provider so I went through the normal setup steps to disconnect my old box and add the new one. Well when you do this it wants to connect to logitech servers and popup a license agreement before you can add your box and for the past 5 days I have been getting network error. I had to add my box as generic video in which allows me to use it but not control the box, hence leaving me with half of the features. In the bedroom box, I decided not to disconnect the old settop box , just change the channel lineup. Fortunetly the new box and old box were compatible so this little trick worked and my bedroom revue works fine. However this is a major flaw from logitech and its been 4 days since I emailed support with no response. I will try calling them.

Background: I have AT&T U-Verse 200, a Sharp 37" LCD tv, Bose Cinemate Series II speakers and I also have a DVD player and an iPod dock connected to my TV. I have always wanted something that enables real time content download from the internet on my TV but never expected Google TV to replace my standard cable connection. At most, I expected to stop paying the extra 10$ I shell out every month for HBO access.

Setup: Bought the device from Best Buy and setup took about 20-25 minutes as the system had to download some updates from the internet. Overall the setup is dummy proof - the device automatically detected my wireless internet and took care of most things on its own except for periodic inputs on location, cable provider etc.I give it 5 stars for ease of use and setup

Initial impression: I have been using the device for 3 days now and am impressed enough. I am originally from India and have been able to watch Indian programming on my TV through YouTube. Additionally, my Netflix subscription allows me to watch streaming videos of high quality on my TV. Are there glitches and hiccups - yes! But nothing that you wouldnt find in a first generation product and nothing that wont be ironed out over time. When Android first came out people were complaining a lot now its overtaking IOS as the operating system of choice for phones - patience is key with new technology.

It took me a while to figure out some basics as the manual is pretty much oriented towards basic setup and configuration. For instance, I realized that the trackpad allows scrolling of windows if you use 2 fingers instead of 1. One big advantage is that the box connects to my AT&T set-top box as well as my TV and thus has helped eliminate both remote controls.
