Let me just say I am all about technology I very much enjoy setting it up and using it. Do you need an affordable media player? If so, this is a powerhouse! This allows you to access all of your network streaming media and any other media you have. All while being hooked up to a TV. What is even more awesome is the fact that you can also turn this into many other useful things. If you want to get the most bang for your money I recommend getting the Canakit complete starter kit here http://www.amazon.com/CanaKit-Raspberry-Complete-Original-Preloaded/dp/B008XVAVAW/ It comes with everything you need! My only issue is the fact that the wireless usb stick is complete shit. It randomly disconnects. Best thing you can do is directly connect it to a router. Or wall plug lan adapter. I am using the Pi B+ to replace my Xbox360 as a media player. I can play every single video or music format I have or download. This is one truly amazing little computer. Well worth the price it costs.
