If only...if only...they would add a DVR to this, it would be perfect.  Anyone have any experience with this?  I'm intrigued.  My chromecast is way too glitchy, but that's probably more a product of the fact that only DSL is available out in the boonies where I live.

I would imagine this would be just as "glitchy" as your Chromecast with a DSL connection.

18.4lbs? Lol I'm sure it's a misprint.

  care to explain,  DSL is good for almost everything you stream in todays market.
I have a 6mb dsl and never have any issues, ~Chromecast could be blamed.
I do not have it, but the Roku 3 player and the lg tv have no issues steaming hd content from Netflix.

A newer version of this can be purchased for $58 on Amazon with free shipping. The reviews aren't so great though.

You are right on the edge as far as adequate bandwidth goes for high quality streams, so other use might be degrading performance.  Also, Chrome cast is wifi (unlike some versions of Roku) and wifi performance can vary from device to device quite widely.

Netflix, for example, recommends 7Mb/s for 1080 streams.

At this point, Google TV is a dead end.

My dsl is only 1-3mb, so yes, any streaming is glitchy no matter the device.

that's $58 after rebates. and i don't like rebates.

and i'm not sure how you determined that it's a newer version. i posted v2, and you linked to v2. i guess i'll trust you on that

  A quick googling says this might be a software-updated version with no difference in hardware... just "V2"ed for SKU purposes.
