I bought this device because the price was right ($169 at Costco) even though I already have a Google Nexus 7. I sort of wanted to compare the two (plus having another device on-hand for Android development testing). I like the idea of the IR blaster, but it wasn't working for me out-of-the-box as a Universal Remote. Optimistic that I can get it working. It was able to turn on and off my devices, but not able to use their channel browsing app. As an avid iPad user, I find the Android interface to be quite a bit clunky, but for the price, you really can't beat this device.
