The price is not something to worry about. I purchased mine with DISH Network since I work there, and I got it for a nice price of $179, and that's not only for employees! I have been using it for about 2 months now and it's amazing. I love it! I would suggest this to anyone who cares to improve their entertainment centers! Its the perfect addition.

The real key is not necessarily the price. It is the WAF (Wife Acceptance Factor). Much less expensive gear than this has fallen flat because the wife rejected it as being unusable. Yes, I know that it is sexist and that is wrong, but it is also a fact across much of the world. If this thing can get hooked up and just work then the price becomes much less of an issue. Larry M.

Consumers are typically price sensitive. No doubt features will attract crowds. It is ultimately the winning factor. I wonder what you would like to see on the STB. Is web browsing on the TV a must feature to you?

$300 feels like a lot of money to me. Basic cable is something like $200 to $300 in most places in the US and [just] more than half of subscribers are only paying for basic cable [2008 NCTA statistics]. Total cable revenue looks to be about $650 per user (averaged over all users), so, again, $300 feels like a lot to me, especially in these times. Now, something like 38 million users have both cable and high speed internet... so I agree with Colin Dixon; "If Logitech sells a million of these, they will be doing very well". VERY well.

After looking at their website, I'm getting excited about the whole concept of the Google TV platform. The Japanese have fully embraced the Droid operating systems, and the open-source software developers seem to be extremely excited about the possibilities. The Revue is the beginning but many will likely follow in the next 6 months. I like the ability to cohesively tie together the HD TVs, internet, Google Marketplace, video conferencing, streaming movies, and potentially other in-home applications into one huge network. I for one see a bright future for the whole concept..

$300 dollars isn't cheap in this market. AppleTV is selling out at $99. That's really the price point for this market. It depends on how many you want to sell. I also realize that AppleTV enables additional dollars to Apple through video rentals and sales, so the profit doesn't need to be great. Once GoogleTV has a revenue model not based on hardware sales then the price can come down. I honestly believe this product can be a game changer but the first wave will be a bit bumpy.

Remember that the box that wins is the one with the best content (not the best features) at the right price! Proven out over and over in the game market. Expect it to be the same here. The first box to offer the contant I want at the price point I want it is the one I'm purchasing.

Well i just saw a demo of Logitech's revue. First of all the camera option where you can talk to your family overseas, I guess the quality is really great. The zoom ,focus and other functions are just great. The WebTV, I somehow like to use my laptop for internet than using a TV. At the end $300 price, I guess is trageting those customer whose pockets are really deep.
