"Not useful at all"1.5 starson by braviatv
Pros: It fits nicely on the back of the TV
Cons: Minimal buffering, limited and stale programming available
Summary: Not usable in the real world.
We have a decently speedy DSL connection and we cannot watch even a postage-stamp sized video without continuous buffering occurring. Add that to the video content that hasn't changed in weeks (except the yahoo news feed), and you have a pretty worthless gadget. Why Sony would sell something like this with what appears to be almost no memory for buffering is beyond me. Maybe it can be fixed with a software update????
And I might add that the content available consists largely of movie previews and snippets, none more interesting than that available on YouTube, etc. with much less hassle.
AppleTV is looking better every day.
