View Full Version : Why is the SB case so underwhwelming designwise?

If you increase the size of the text it is enormous and can easily be seen
even 20 feet away. Many users have requested some basic hard buttons on the
unit for things like the arrow keys (browsing) power, volume, mute.

Hopefully some of those things will make it into a product eventually.
