Review: Vizio Co-Star


After being unceremoniously abandoned by key hardware partner Logitech last fall, the Google TV platform seems to have found a worthy replacement in Vizio.

Handles 1080p streams, and several video formats for local files. Button-filled remote control is like a Swiss Army knife of input. Straightforward setup. Chrome browser surprisingly doesn’t want to make you gouge your eyes out in frustration

Vizio Co-Star review


Will anyone ever get Google TV right?...
