    I want one. Either to use as a xbmc pc, or try to make an all in one keyboard like the raspcherry posted earlier.

    Mine is used for XBMC almost exclusively.

    Does it work well? Any latency when streaming?

    Works fine for me to be honest; it's pretty slick.

    It's not as smooth as on a pc or xbox etc but it does the job and has saved me running copper further throughout my house to the kitchen for a tv there

    I have one, I have got Raspmc on it. It is a project running XBMC on Raspberry pi running Debian.

    I even managed to get it out of the box but RL has intervened. I hope to take it into work next week to try out. Failing that it will be loaned to the local CAS hub so someone gets some use.

    Have had a break from mine as getting a new puppy intervened and have been so busy at work with some difficult stuff that it really has been the last thing I've wanted to do in my spare time.
    Just started having a quick nosey again this evening and have just downloaded Raspian as I was still on the old Debian.
    Also, have back ordered the new Gertboard as that looks really good, although it'll be a real test of my long lost soldering skills as it comes in kit form and has some surface mount components.

    I think I might have treated mine a little too enthusastically as it no longer seems to want to boot. The problem seems to be a faulty on-board USB controller - either it was faulty to begin with (there does seem to have been an early batch with issues) or I've fried it by trying to plug in too many interesting devices (mouse, keyboard, MiFare reader, temperature sensor, PiFace board, WiFi, SD card reader...). I'm ordering another three for when I get back from holiday, along with some pre-imaged SD cards and recommended power supplies (although I have tried half-a-dozen different SD cards of assorted speeds/classes and probabaly about the same number of power supplies already).
