- Love it! Review by Bitten
I have been looking for a means by which to cut the cord and the Co-star is it! It is inexpensive, easy to set up and offers you access to content beyond the restrictions of conventional service providers. Great product!

- Great, but could use some work! Review by Conner R
I got this device as an android for my parents. After messing around with it a lot (before giving it to them) I came to the conclusion its a great, powerful device that does everything THEY would want it to it, but the skimmed version on Android that's on this device makes it hard to take full advantage of Android on their TV.
From a hardware stand point its' great.
For users with limited knowledge of Android, it's great.
For users who want more opinions out of this device, it's not that great. I'm hoping over time Vizio will reduce the fragmentation of the version of Android they have / push to this device. Sadly, I think in the future, I might be forced to root and re-rom it when a good kit comes out for it if Vizio doesn't give it good updates in the future.

- Except the power LED, this is a great product Review by Rajidhar Etta
Title says it all - They really messed it up by not having any visual indication on the front of the unit.
With latest updates (after November 14th, 2012), I am beginning to like it a lot. This is the best Google TV experience you get and it is bound to get improvements. There is lot of activity in terms of Google TV development lately and by being one of the 2nd generation products co-star will continue to get updates for another year at least.

- Best google TV product Review by jerseyish
I am an early adopter of most new technology and this means I've tried google tv in various forms. Before this, I was using a Logitech Revue, but this is head and shoulders above that product, which now seems clunky and unacceptable by comparison. Good points: great remote, smooth interface that lays over screen, works on the same input as my DVR (no need to switch between cable box, dvr, and co-star); remote controls everything (TV, cable box, co-star); remote has one button access to netflix and amazon video; Plex streams smoothly from my PC over my home network. And the kicker is the price: $99.

- Great Features For The Low Price! Review by terryh1964
Had my Co Star now for about 3 weeks. Love the Internet... the APPS are fantastic... I don't think that people understand that the apps are the same as the ones you download to your Android phone from Google Play. I would say that most of the apps appear to work but I have come across a few that don not because they were specifically made to be used on a phone.
There is nothing currently out there that comes close to the Co Star.
Things I would like to see added to the Co Star:
1. a redesign that incliudes some form of cooling fan... I would not reccomend leaving the co star on for LONG periods of time.
2. an actual keyboard for those that REALLY like to surf the net using the co star.
3. some form of lights on the box to let you know that the co star is on or off.

- Lots of features for the price Review by Dereks247
This was worth the purchase. I pretty much only use Netflix to watch movies and shows. I used the Wii before and it has poor quality video and audio. This has full HD capabilities which made a huge difference. For the price, this thing has all sorts great features you can use. It is a little sluggish to me and I wish you could stream on some of the news sites but im hoping later on that it will be enabled.

- Like it! UVerse Capable Review by Gator
Although the advertisments do not say it, Co-Star Integrates with U-Verse boxes. Netflix works smoothly. I can check email, weather, Google search, schedule, etc from my remote.

- Great Streaming Media Content Review by vsv
Great product to wach Youtube, Hulu, surf internet with Google Chrome. I like it very much. Very nice small size , can place on top of the cable box or TV. The only thing I don't like is power LED indicator is located in Back of the unit.
There should be some kind of LED screen or indicator to see the mode between live TV and Vizio Co-Star? and if Power is On or Off?
Vizio brings out some very good products, why it missed in these area?
Hope Vizio should consider in design change.

- I like it! Review by Daniel
There are some internet issues with the Google Chrome Browser and Adobe Flash Player because some websites you will not be able view their streaming media content. I hope that vizio develops an update because I am an avid streaming media user. I love the PIP feature and overall I give the product 4.67 stars out of 5.

- good so far Review by John
Just got the co-star and have been testing it out. It looks good and operates pretty good too. I was kind of shocked that once I got the intial setup done and it needed to restart that it came back on and said the software needed to be updated already. Other than that it is a very good product.
