Compared to some devices like the Popcorn Hour it is more expensive, but now 
that I've played with it a bit and see what it can do, the price premium 
starts to seem more reasonable.

The fact that it's up and running out of the box immediately, and can be used 
by non-techie users easily, should make it a popular consumer box, though of 
course the interest here is more about what it can be made to do in addition 
to the OOTB functions.
