Ok, so far, initial setup was easy.
I haven't tested wifi yet to know how fast it is, but the LAN connection downloaded my 6GB of content in just a few minutes.
Currently have it running a layout with 6x 720p videos in 480x270 sized regions. they are a tad bit choppy with or without using a SurfaceView for rendering (however it is smoother with it on).
I'm going to let this run for a while, maybe I'll add 2 more videos just see if I can get the unit to overheat.
next step after that is to load the rooted image.
a nifty feature in their OS is the ability to schedule a reboot!
nice vanilla OS without a bunch of pre-installed apps
