Let me go grab that universal I bought with the keyboard ...
So I have a kill-a-watt power measuring device and I measured how much power the boxee box was using.. it uses 15 watts when booting up, 15 watts when idling in a menu, 15 watts when playing a 720p mkv file and 15 watts when on standby mode :P
So far I'm satisfied with the boxee box.. except some 1080p mkv files make it reboot the UI. It's sort of like how explorer.exe crashes sometimes in windows.. it restarts itself right away.. but it seems to happen every time on the same files at the same positions. I'm optimistic this will be fixed by 1.0 when it updates tomorrow.. If not, I'll be pretty upset, but I'll still keep teh boxee box. All I really wanted out of it was to be like a popcorn hour but have a good ui. The ui is pretty fast, not as fast as my core 2 duo HTPC but there's no annoying delays or anything. Also the fan is quiet, which was a relief to me.
update: the remote keyboard is REALLY nice.. you won't accidentally press any keys and so far I've typed in user/passes for three different network shares and it worked great
