I am just curious if the set top boxes are worth it and if so which do you recommend. I have researched these things to death and now I just want your opinions. What I want is 1080p wireless Netflix and a web browser. My top three so far are pop box, boxee box, logitech's revue. Just noticed the popcorn hour c200 any thoughts on any of these.

True 1080p will never work over wireless, regardless of your hardware of choice. The bandwidth requirements are just too high, with maybe the exception of 300Mbps Wireless-N in ideal conditions.  For HD-streaming, you will want a hard wired connection.

As far as how these boxes compare, check out this article from Gizmodo.
