I have to say I am happy with my revue for the 99 dollar price. I too once looked when they were 299 and decided they weren't for me but at 99 it's just a must have. My only gripe is the inability to stream via silverlight. I run a Windows Home Server 2011 machine that has 8TB of space I share all my home movies, family pictures, movie collection adn do home PC backups on and it being a Windows produst streams through silverlight. Even so for 99 dollars I am happy with all else from my Revue. I use the DLNA features to pull movies from the server just wish t was more integrated and smoother streaming like on a laptop. Thinking about buying one for my sons dorm room and another for my bedroom.
