The Boxee Box is by no means perfect, but compared to Roku, Apple TV and some of the more DIY options I think it has a place. Well, had a place. Now that it's clear Boxee has a very bad habit of dropping support for their products, it's hard to recommend the original Boxee Box or even the new TV version. It seems like the premium for the original Boxee Box over the others was going to be more power, more future-proofing, more everything. I thought I was spending $200 on something that was going to last me a while, rather than $70 on a Roku that would need to be replaced every few years. With Boxee saying they're never going to release new features for the Boxee Box I'm pretty disappointed. There are bugs that will probably never get fixed, and half-completed features that will apparently stay that way forever. AirPlay is still a checkbox hidden way down in a menu and marked as beta. As a user of Boxee from it's early software days, who put up with the decision to focus on expensive hardware, I can't see myself being a Boxee user much longer.
