Now this looks interesting...
I'm a sucker for technology, so I will likely pick one of these up soon. Has anyone here bought one yet? If so, what are your thoughts.
I like the concept even if I am on WP8 but I question how distinct this is from Push2TV if I already have WiDi enabled devices. The upside seems to be the cost at 60 cents on the dollar. The other question I'd have is how limited is this - I hear Netflix & Chrome Tab but wasn't sure about my local media. It seems cool though.
I love the idea. One thing that will break this out as a device long term is the ability to use it over a 4G network instead of wifi. Then you can really cut the cord and just move to a cell phone for everything. I have a Roku now and enjoy it for a lot of programming. There's some okay free stations and you have the optional stuff you can buy like Netflix, Hulu, and even MLB.tv. It'd be nice to get a Chromecast app to customize Internet sites into 'channels' like animedreaming.tv or justin.tv, too.
Overall, I think it's one more step to having pure on demand, Internet delivered programming.
Don't have one yet but I'm seriously thinking hard about it. Not really, I'm getting one. I think it is worth it for the price. Have not read anything negative about it.

is there any additional benefit to this if i already own a ps3 and have it plugged into my tv?
btw, it's $35 at best buy and includes 3 months of netflix.
adam187, it does seem to have more benefits than just acting as a streaming device. It really is like a display extension for anything you can do in chrome on a laptop/netbook. Although it doesn't support Windows Phone, you can stream from any Android or iOS device and you can stream anything from Chrome which appears to include Office on the web. Watching Netflix using my four year old alarm clock, I mean Android phone, is slick as all get out.
