I love my Revo, best $200.00 I've spent In my mind. Although I'm using
Ethernet and not WiFi, so no congestion problems. Plus Flash 10.1 I can
watch Hulu Desktop and, yea the CPU is like 85%, but the video isn't
choppy. It's very nice. Now once the CrystalHD drivers are putinto myth,
hope my AppleTV does much better playing video.
