Personally i want something with higher specs but at $99 this guy has a place. If you put the main purpose of this device which is gaming aside it still is at the right price to compete with media streaming devices like roku all day long. Add on the gaming console aspect and you get a ton of value for $100.
Since I already own a gaming console, gaming pc, and a media center pc I doubt one will end up in my home. However I can certainly see why people would want one.
