"BEWARE! Boxee Doesn't Work"0.5 starson by brian neary
Pros: The Company rep who demo'd the product at the Gadget Expo was articulate and very forthcoming. Unfortunately, the product ISN'T. The best example of false advertizing yet foisted on a gullible public.
Cons: ."We're working on it" is the answer I was given by tech support to each unsolved problem I reported. For $200, that answer is unacceptable. A misshappen little box with a very misleading ad campaign.
Summary: The product was a disaster. Boxee's own Browser is not yet active. Can't navigate the URLs once they appear on screen. NHL app is "out of order." Tech support admits most apps "don't quite work yet." Keyboard letters are grey on black and completely obscured. Most apps are just place holders (not available yet) The programing which does actually function properly can be downloaded free with most big screen packages that come already included with purchase. Great programing is promised sometime in the future. But when the apps they already have don't even work, the future sounds as fallacious as the current malfunctioning system. The name should be changed to "box of smoke."
