Corey gets his today. It's like a super fancy Roku that can also be a Plex server. Making this thread so he remembers to tell us all about it.

Way too pricey for me but it does seem cool

What's the verdict Corey? Is the price tag worth it over a Roku or Amazon TV?

If this was $99 I would get it just for the Plex Server part. Last night Titanfall was unplayable while it was transcoding a Plex video. This is something that only comes up every couple of months though.

Will Corey ever respond to this?

Corey, have you tried streaming games to this? Is it better than Steam Link? How is the controller?

Still waiting on answers to the other questions!

Hi! It is a neat thing! It is great at streaming video which is what I have used it for so far. Super fast through the UI. Waiting for the neat stuff to come like Google assistant and the Spots. Haven't tried the game streaming as I don't ever want to play on a TV.

When we move we'll likely go back to Comcast so I might have cable again and it'll be neat to have the channels on this box. I'd need a HDHomerun again though.

So....You might as well be using a Roku right now?

I think Comcast is going to have a TV app this year? But I guess that will come to all boxes.
