Final Thoughts

 

After our time with the GlideTV Navigator and software we were fairly impressed, although it did not exactly replace our media center remote. We have been using it less and less with it only being pulled out to quickly move from one channel to another.

 

We have also begun using more of the online media services as a result of having them all in one place. Before the only place Hulu, ABC.com and Netflix were all used was in the lab where the mouse for the HTPC system was in easy reach. Now with the range and ease of use the Navigator allows these normally mouse bound apps to be used in a much larger environment.

 

The What's On service is exceptional and makes it very simple to move back and forth between services to find TV shows and Movies that you might miss if you are bound to one service. As an added bonus, you get the software for free and the Navigator will only cost you $69.99. This puts the GlideTV Navigator in a lower price bracket than many media center remotes.

 

As it stands right now, the GlideTV Navigator is a great product and from what we have heard, it is only going to get better.
