I'm waiting for it to show up on Amazon then I'll grab one to play with. Might give it to my parents. I don't think it would be as useful for me since I have a full computer hooked into every TV in my house. :laugh:

Its available on play.  I just ordered one.  My TV has a  Netflix app but isnt updated at all.  XBOX is ok...but would be nice to control everything from my laptop/phone.

 

Doesnt ship until August 2nd tho.
