I received the Asus Cube this past Saturday. Here are my impressions after 2 days of use: Setup I was initially impressed with the setup. It was quick and efficient. Remote The remote's build quality is fabulous. It feels so much better than the Vizio remote, in my opinion. The navigation from the track pad feels good. UI I was astonished on how much faster the UI felt compared to the Vizio Co-Star. It was very snappy. There is no lag when navigating the UI. IR Blaster Support The IR Blaster support is really bad. The IR Blaster is built into the box, not the remote. This is a no go for my situation. I am a universal remote user. I am used to having one remote. With the Asus Cube, I will always need two remotes because of the lack of IR support. This is really frustrating. Overall, the Cube is the fastest Google TV box I have seen. The lack of IR blaster in the remote is the reason why I am returning it for a refund. I really feel that Asus has made a Google TV box that is about 80% of the way there for me. I am very hopeful for the announcements we might here at Google IO in May.
