I still lean toward the Roku. There isn't a lot of information available on the Co-Star. Here's an early review I found:

I know next to nothing about the Vizio, but I can tell you that the Roku would be a great choice. I just finally got one a few weeks ago and absolutely love it!

Roku XS is the choice here.

I'd go Vizio Costar all the way purely for the Android apps. I've heard great things about Roku, but for me it's all about having my Netflix, Spotify, web browsing, and gaming available. And controlling it from my Android phone or tablet will be nice as well.

Well I pre-ordered my Vizio Co-Star Google TV streamer because I have android on everything else including phone and tablet why not my TV too. I know I could hook my ICS tablet or phone to the TV via HDMI but the bluetooth remote with full keyboard and touchpad will be much easier to operate. I also like that it is fully google supported with the Play Store and I just hope since HBO GO is on Android Tablets and Smart Phones that it comes to this too. In the meantime I used my XBOX 360's for HBO GO, but they overheat when run for a long time. I just did not like that the Roku requires a credit card so if I accidentally click on some channel I am not subscribed to it will charge you for it.

I also vote for the Vizio Co-Star.

This will be a great product, unlike the Logitech Revue.

Can't wait for my chance to purchase one !

@jocallag339: Roku has a 4 digit pin to prevent accidental or unauthorized purchases. Go to your account page on web I think to setup.
