Leo, Carlisle

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Does what it's supposed to.

Great for BBC, ITV, 4, 5 and NetFlix. Replaced a Wii that kept losing the connection.

It's tiny and only has two wires, the remote batteries last (unlike the Wii remotes)
Bad points:
Netflix app doesn't have profiles. Most of the additional channels available are pay (despite claiming to be free) but the content is mediocre anyway so no biggy.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Ethernet port
Works well with Plex
Bad points:
Netflix audio is only stereo due to Dolby Digital+. Not an issue as I use an AppleTV for Netflix which converts the audio to AC3.
