Logitech Review

 

I have 3 of these. The great thing about it that it comes with a keyboard. You just type what you want not move a cursor around the screen and selecting individual letters. It works well and gets used often in our house

It does have to be rebooted occasionally

Bad Product

 

Browse built-in

Dont wast your money to buy this product. It didn.t support MKV files and the network share feature is worse than major stram player

Maybe refurb has the problems ...

 

Basically, every time I turn on the TV I have to reset the Revue. Soon (8-8-12 this review written) Vizio is supposed to have a similar device, a small box with Chrome, etc. Apparently they no longer make the Revue.

Having Google TV (w/Chrome browser) makes this product worth the problems. It's a wonderful device, despite a few problems, and provides a real browser for your TV with a real keyboard to use. However, it's possible my refurb is the problem. If new...

Having to reboot every time makes it a pain

Consumer review by:

Meh

 

This thing is great at a glance, but its kind of a piece. It lags and hangs all the time. You literally cant watch a video on the internet for more than 10 minutes without it crashing. There is no support to speak of, it was discontinued. Skip it if...

Wireless keyboard ; Lots of free Stuff ; Easily hide-able

Buggy as hell ; Slow ; Gets bogged down within the hour

Worth it for the price

 

this gadget would allow you to make your "non" internet connected tv into a connected one, for alot less money.

keyboard, connectivity, app availability I actually bought one of these a year ago. at the time, it really wasn't very impressive. the froyo build it used was basically worthless, and after a week, i returned it. i came upon this on newegg for $89,...

none so far

Nice product

 

This product is one stop for the viewers to get one in all ; Apart from netflix , youtube it comes up with browser. It is very easy to handle and user friendly but need practise atleast for a week

No cons

Consumer review by:

Not bad at all

 

A nice product for the money. Got rid of my cableTV and it paid for this in one month.

Google TV is at least as good as most cable garbage, Netflix and some decent apps

Crashes if you push it a little but you just learn not to

was curious and now i know

 

with 2 HTPCs, ATV2, and roku2 i don't know why i bought this. i guess i was just curious. if you have a similar setup like me, there isn't a reason to use this unless you have a TV that doesn't have one. otherwise it's a good price for being a refurb....

easy to use. similar to setting up android phones. it connects to your google account. low power consumption. HDMI was included as well

it doesn't support DLNA. you can use plex but you have to pay for the app. i don't use plex, i use xbmc and my nas box uses DLNA

Want to like it, but is critical flaws in basic functionality

 

I am surprised I did not see reviews about this flaw on newegg. After setting it up I was able to stream the video from my movies, but 90% come through with no audio. This is a well documented issue everywhere else on the internet, and Logitech has no...

I like the fact that I can run my cable box into this and then out to the TV - allows me to control my TV and media center all through one device. Keyboard is nice (a bit flimsy feeling, but nice in that it also allows you to power on your TV, Cable...

This device has one MAJOR flaw which renders it unusable as a media center. It doesn't play anything encoded with DTS (which is 90% of my media library). If you have MKV files, they are likely encoded with DTS ; H.264 encoding also
