It seems every time a new "console" comes out, someone has make a video smashing it... This makes me sick. Even if they didn't like the device, why break it? If you want hits, make a contest where it gets donated to a random subscriber, like Leo Laporte did on his tech show. I would love to get one of these devices, but I agree at the current price point, its not worth the investment. Most of the people that were returning them, were expecting a computer... Thats not what this device is; it shouldn't be thought of as a computer - it can't do Flash* - it can't multi-task. Its a content device-not a new Mac. The people who didn't do their homework and get buyer's remorse, only have themselves to blame.
*It can't do Flash but you could run a VNC app and run Flash on another computer. Not the best work around, but if you're creative enough, there's a way to do anything.
