It launched at $299.99, then the price was slashed to $249.99, $199.99, and finally $99.99. You can’t really call the Logitech Revue a success. But you can call it a solid product, and much improved now that the Google TV 2.0 update has been deployed. Google TV is really a pretty solid streaming STB platform, and I only expect it to get better. Google seems to be very solidly committed to it. The Logitech Revue is a good product, and at $80 for a refurbished unit it is a steal.
With the release of SlingPlayer for Logitech Revue it can act as a SlingCatcher – only better than the SlingCatcher ever was, and a lot less expensive. Logitech is getting out of the Google TV game, and when the existing stocks of the Revue are gone, that’s it. So if you think you might be interested, now is a good time to grab one cheap.
