"Pros: It's small, original, fully featured and more than capable of playing almost every file type, including popular 1080p containers Cons: The interface can be slow to respond and Flash support is a little shaky (though improving). It's not as pretty as custom Jukeboxes

"If D-Link's Boxee Box is nothing else, it's original. With its unusual chassis design it makes a really bold statement, featuring a sunken, off-centre cube shape that sets it apart from anything in its class. While its unconventional looks could divide a household from an aesthetic standpoint, its performance as an internet TV device, network and local movie player almost certainly wont. The design might frustrate those with low-profile spaces under their TV set (for which it's a little too tall), but we were certainly taken with it, not least because it's smaller and infinitely cuter than the imagery here credits it."
