I'm familiar enough with the Google TV experience to know how it has worked in the past on other devices. The 3D cube-based interface that ASUS has overlaid on top of Google TV is awkward and slow. I don't find it helpful for intuitively knowing how to use the system. The remote control has got to be the worst remote I've ever used. Trying to be the Swiss army knife of remotes, it manages to result in confusing errant clicks just from taking it into your hand. The push-to-talk button is a frequent press for both my wife and I, as it's on the right middle-top side where thumbs tend to rest. The trackpad/D-pad excels at neither function.

The ASUS Cube did not perform nearly as well as I had hoped. Setting it up was complicated and the instructions were lacking. Contacting ASUS for technically help was a nightmare, and the person on the other line hung up without calling me back with an answer.Once I figured out how to set it up (on my own), I found the performance and features to be severely lacking. The Cube actually slowed my picture speed down and made my cable broadcast jittery. I couldn't access my DVR menu, nor could I exit out of my cable guide, with the ASUS remote. The Cube caused a loud buzzing noise when I fast forwarded my DVR. I returned it. I'll wait for Android TV.

outdated utility - Even after update, the software was "buggy".The small remote is not easy to use - would have been better if the size of standard TV remote.Touchpad is to sensitive, no way to adjust. It will not find my CATV tuner, I have to use a close as possible Cisco device. Therefore, Cube does not integrate with the cable box. Powers off without warning. Will not support flash video. Very limited android apps for Google TV. Google TV is blocked by OTA & CATV networks for On Demand viewing.Best Bet - Hook a Computer to the HDMI input on your TV.

- Basically just plays netflix, hulu, etc.- I thought it would give access to many 'channels' but so far haven't figured it out- Runs android, but the android store selection is limited in what you can download due to device compatibility- Can hook up external hard drive and play video; however, the cube has limited codecs and as such will only play certain type of videos (so far I haven't figured out how to get additional codecs)- Operating system is a little sluggish (not that big of a deal)

This device does NOT have HULU Plus like all the other smart TV devices out there like Roku and so on. It blocks anything HULU Plus so you can't even go to the HULU website and play content from there. It does not control my TV nor does it control my DVR box. I have an XFINITY X1 box. It doesn't recognize my Philips TV either. On a good note, it is an Android operating system and is prone to developers coming out with hacking solutions that may unlock these features in the future.

During the first few days of being connected, it went through several updates that really made it to be much slower than it is... Still, once all the upgrades had completed and the actual speed of the unit could be evaluated, it's still a bit of a clunky interface. For my money, a ROKU 2 provides a more pleasing experience. If this box gives you access to something you want, it's still a decent choice.

It is a piece of junk. Although I got it cheap but it wasn't worth either money or time. It does not have latest Google TV version which was release more than a year ago by google. It is still running GTV 3.2 which has abysmal app support. I hope Asus will update it to at least GTV 4.2 version.

ASUUs adverised that I could get HBOGO, even has an app pre-installed for it, but the cube does not support the app. I honestly can't remember if the description for the cube on groupon or their website, said this app would work. Other than the HBO app, the cube works great!

Decent product, fairly priced, especially with MIR from Asus. Interface is a little wonky but it's a great way to get Internet access without a computer. There are cheaper and more efficient ways to get media apps, however.

Much more difficult to use than one would hope in terms of adding apps, and so forth. Also drops wireless connection frequently. May eventually turn out to be useful, but not for people who don't like to tinker.
