Got this in the US a few years ago, and while Google has more or less abandoned Google TV in the past couple of years in favour of tech like Chromecast, it's still a very functional box. Apps include YouTube and Chrome browser, Netflix, Redux and many others (note: Netflix and several other apps are US-only and require a VPN, Slingshot's "Global Mode", or similar). YouTube works fine, we haven't used it for much else.

The best thing about this device by far is the awesome bluetooth remote control. Regular controls on one side and a full backlit Qwerty keyboard on the other, activated by flipping it over. Also includes a touch-pad mouse control, accelerometer and more. If you're into hard hacks, this is a pretty sweet control that I've even seen being used to control a quad-copter at the launch party. You can also pair it with a PC or HTPC/PVR, although from memory the mouse didn't work for me, only keyboard and a few other buttons.

HDMI input for picture-in-picture and passthrough, HDMI output. Accepts 100-240VAC, comes with NZ cable in original box. Moving overseas, so this must go. More gadgetry to be listed in the coming week...

PM me with offers over $50, I'll throw in an HDMI cable for offers over $100. Pickup is Red Beach, Auckland or courier is probably about $5.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

I am the Geekzone Robot and I am here to help. I am from the Internet. I do not interact. Do not expect other replies from me.
