Yeah I got one. I have mixed feelings on it though. I like the form factor and the remote has it's merits, although a bit clunky. I find it very good for online streaming (Hulu, Netflix...) but local network streaming is patchy and codec support (e.g AC3) is not as good as it should be.
I had hopes that it would eventually support XBMC but there are limitations imposed by Google which currently will not allow this. My workaround is to have my ATV2 (with XBMC) feeding through the Co-Star to get my local multimedia goodness
I don't have another GTV device to compare it to, but there are more coming on the market. GTV seems to be taking off a little again, after the Logitech Revue debacle. Things like PrimeTime and voice search have been added recently. I'll hang on to mine for a little while and see what happens.
