It's not the most blow-the-doors-off set-top box on the market, but for under a hundred bucks there are few easier, cheaper ways to play all kinds of content from the internet (including HBO GO), as well as full 1080p video. And if you don't need the USB, Ethernet jack, and casual games, you can save $20 on the otherwise identical 2 HD.
