When I read the reviews for this product, I thought people must've not been cooling the device properly. So, I ordered it anyway, and I was immediately impressed. The device came with a remote, looked sharp, and was in decent packaging. I saw that the vents were covered by a protective layer of plastic, so I thought, "Ha! I bet those morons didn't take the plastic off, and that's why it overheated." Well, I was the moron for buying the device. Though I removed the restrictive plastic, placed the device in a well ventilated area, and directed a cooling fan toward the device, it STILL performed poorly, just as the reviews stated. After about a week of having the device, it started turning off randomly. It got to the point where it would do nothing but turn on and off for hours at a time. At the end, it was in a cycle of endless rebooting.
I will say that when it performed, it was a good device. It could record TV onto a flash drive, had multiple timed recording abilities, show descriptions, a program guide, excellent video quality, built in arcade games, and a remote.
It's too bad it was made so cheap.
