SageTV HD200 Theater Get's First Review

SageTV HD200 has a short review of the new SageTV HD Theater (HD200).  This review is definitely from a new users perspective with a strong focus on the stand-alone mode (using the HD200 without the SageTV server) for mostly video stored on the network and online video.

Overall they liked the box, but felt the user interface was confusing and somewhat difficult to use.  Honestly I tend to agree that the UI could use some work for the stand-alone mode, but this review really wasn't from a HTPC users perspective at all.  Still, it gives us the first look at the HD200 from a non-HTPC person and the advice for the UI in the article is pretty good.
