I've bought one right when they were released..  In the early days, it 
was pretty limited,   Now it's a little better than ok..   the movie 
selection from Netflix is somewhat lean but steadily getting better.    
They have recently added new programming sources, but nothing to 
exciting yet.

If you're looking to save some $$$ I can see that as a nice 
accompaniment to an over-the-air antenna and online tv sources.
