    Was thinking of building an Intel NUC with XBMC but then I saw this new device coming out for 79 euros...

    Xtreamer SideWinder 4 - What is

    Sounds really good but my knowledge of streamers has gone downhill these days and I can't remember if Xtreamer are a good make/company or not.

    Whats ya opinion of this, will it be good enough to replace my aging Boxee Box?

    I got one of these devices a few weeks back, at this current point in time the device is unable to display 1080p, its 720p upscaled.

    I did a test with a 1080p test card video on my SW2 and then on this SW4...

    And also the device doesnt support 24hz mode. The device is however very snappy and is nice to have XBMC on it
