Dear Logitech: The Revue Is Overpriced

Dear Logitech: The Revue Is Overpriced

I’m a firm believer in Google TV. I think the platform has more promise than any other software running on set-top boxes today. With the right vision and some fulfilment on promises Google has made in the past, I think it’s quite possible for the company’s platform to entirely change the way we enjoy entertainment in the living room.

Logitech Says Nothing’s Wrong with Revue, Will be at CES 2011

Over the last few days, there's been a lot of rumors and speculation regarding Google TV. We've heard it being said that Google TV would miss CES 2011 altogether, while companies would be freezing their plans for the Internet-on-your-TV idea from Google entirely. Further, it was being said that Logitech was freezing production of their Revue set-top box, while Google worked on a new version. Apparently, that last bit isn't true at all.

Logitech has pushed out the first update for their Revue Google TV box, and it's addressed two of the biggest complaints about the media streaming STB.

That makes the Blu-ray deck the same $299.99 as Logitech is asking for their Revue, though you're also getting a more compact (if arguably confusing) remote control and Blu-ray playback.

Logitech Revue Review

Logitech Revue Review

You can't accuse Google of being unambitious. Not content with having their Android OS take great bites out of the smartphone market, the search giant has also put it to work as the core of Google TV, a new play for the home entertainment segment. Most early-adopters will dip their tow with the Logitech Revue, a compact set-top box with a not-so-compact $300 price tag. The promise is that Google TV harnesses the power of search and online media to the breadth of broadcast television, but does the Revue deliver? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
