I read about that one, the hardware is pretty impressive for the price. More recently I read about the S21H which has 2GB RAM. I continue to read about these things but never buy one. The Google TV platform with HDMI input and a modified Android system designed for internet TV applications are much better suited for my needs so I am staying with Google TV.

Did you get one for Christmas and if so, what do you think?

I told Santa to hold off for a bit. I'm trying to find out if these things will run my Vulkano app.

My Kindle Fire HD runs my projector all day. If I can get one of these low cost android PC's to work, I'd rather use that.

I have read running Android apps on the various Android TV mini sticks has been hit or miss and couldn't find immediate confirmation on Vulkano. I have an Android tablet and Google TV, no smart phones, and don't mess with Slingbox or Vulkano or any other similar products. My preference, I am old and want simple, I just use TiVo to record OTA or PlayLater to record internet streaming video to my laptop or USB drive and can play the video wherever I want, with or without internet connection. I don't understand the attraction to that type of service which requires jumping through more hoops than I will mess with when there exists such a simple foolproof method. I have both Google TV and TiVo connected to my projector, along with Blu-ray, HD DVD, D-VHS, etc.
