I have neither a HTPC or gaming console so this device fulfills both duties for me. I run Kodi for media playback and use the Gamestream function to play games from my PC on my TV. Add to the the OTA cable integration with an HDHomerun, its the box that does it all for me without all of the HTPC maintenance or takes up the space of the multiple additional boxes.I have a $150 Best Buy gift card to burn, and I am very interested.
But as an HTPC and Xbox One/360 owner (who doesn't have a 4k display) I havent seen any of you post something that makes me think I need this.
However, I don't record TV I only briefly watch it live for sports. Any shows I download.
