Pros - Only i see is double RAM, 16gb, and a new CPU that I know nothing about.

Cons - Not sure how this will dance with my Logitech Harmony Hub that has all these gizmos marching in step.

Regrets - i was hoping Jeff would maybe allow integration of an OTA tuner and allow add-on storage and maybe DVR.

Anyway, I'm a fool so I signed up. Also signed up for a Channel Master Stream+. Luckily the Post office lost it and saved me $99.00 on that.

The Cube has the same quadcore ARM Cortex-A53 SoC as the Fire TV 3, so probably an Amlogic S912 derivative.

I pre-ordered it and then canceled it. Waste of money. Fire TV 1st Gen still relevant.
