Detailed review
I believe the Xbox 360 is an essential part of any home theatre setup. Its brings best in class games with great social networking features, Netflix streaming, and Home Media Center integration to your living room. I have two of them, and stream all of my media (HDTV via/ATSC, DLNA via ReadyNAS, Netflix) to my TVs from them. I love downloading indie and XBLA games, and the Xbox offers the best third party and Xbox exclusive games available.

My only complaint this that they are very loud devices, and disrupt 5.1 audio setups quite easily. The later generation (HDMI) is quieter, but not by much. The Playstation 3 is much quieter.
