Re: Streaming
SarahReedy:  Is thedeteriation of quality be due to cloud network congestion?  I'm assuming everything get through the clouds.  If so, Google might need to focus on cloud optimization?

Well, for about $35, you get what you pay for.  Google announced that they are blocking local media downloading too.  With such new alleged hot product, I think people need to just wait and see how this is further developed by Google, along with the next round of similar products to see how this market really turns out.

Re: Streaming
I like the UI. It's incredibly simple and easy to set up and use. While I was really impressed with the speed and quality the first handful of times I've used it, the last few haven't been as good. May be just isolated problems, but I hope the quality doesn't detoriate.

Re: Streaming
The UI (or, more accurately, the lack of a UI) is exactly what I like about it. I want my TV to be a dumb monitor, push all of controls to my phone/tablet instead. The 10' interface is great for simple choices, but when I'm selecting somthing to watch out of thousands of choices I need a keyboard and a way to quickly select from 10's of on-screen options that are the result of a search. Both of these are clumbsy at best with traditional remotes and much simpler with a mobile device.

Re: Streaming
Interesting, the UI is supposed to be a selling point.

Re: Streaming
not impressed with it. I really expected a nice user interface, remote, etc like Apple TV but it's not even as good as a slingbox.

I was a little surprised that only 50 people are happy with their existing streaming system, room for more uptake there?
