Logitech Revue Brief Review
Internet Set-top box; Integrates Internet video, downloaded content, and cable/satellite listings; 1080p playback capability; Wifi b/g/n, ethernet; Comes with keyboard and remote control
Logitech Revue is the box that accesses the Google TV platform. It’s the first device to try to pull together downloaded content, streaming Web content, and cable or satellite listings into one interface. So if you search for “The Simpsons,” the idea is that it will turn up all the upcoming TV showtimes, anywhere that it’s streaming on the Internet, and any episodes on your hard drive. It sounds great, but it a few hurdles to leap before it becomes a must-buy. The biggest disappointment is that the major TV networks block access to their content -- this is a huge shortcoming. There are also the expected software kinks that come along with any first generation product. In time, Google TV could be great, but it’s probably best to hold off on a purchase at this point, especially considering the bloated $299 price tag.
