For all the gadget guys and gals out there, the Hisense Pulse is here.
What is it? The Pulse is the latest Google TV device that blends TV and the web. You can watch live TV or you can stream content from cool apps like YouTube and Netflix... or discover new apps via Google Play.
Consumers were able to hold it in their hands as early as Friday night or Saturday morning thanks to Amazon. Weather delays pushed some deliveries back a day.
What are some of the new features? The Pulse has a mic feature. Although voice search isn't enabled yet, it is scheduled to be available in a few weeks. Let's hope.

A lot of people are trying to figure out if they should take the plunge for the $95 device. They mostly want to know how it compares to the Logitech Revue or the Vizio Co-Star.

So far, the reviews have been positive. The Pulse seems faster and "less buggy" as some consumers mentioned. Here, I helped Brian David Feliciano as he unboxed and set up his Hisense Pulse.
Aside from the basic setup... here are some of your questions:
-Can you use the Logitech keyboard with this device?
-Is the Pulse faster than the Vizio?
-How does Chrome operate on the Pulse?
-Is the Amazon app available?
-Do you have to connect the IR blaster to the device?
-What is the picture out of picture feature?
-What does the remote feel like?
HOT TIP from Kim Beasley: Just a tip, when you are setting up on a Windows GTVBox, Twonky, or aVia to view video on your computer, make sure that you have the files in a top level folder under Video. I tried to get all three of these programs to see my video files that were a subfolder in a main folder but none of these programs found the main folder. Once I created folders on the main level of Videos, then these programs pickup my files. I know, strange.
