Very nice specs, for a very nice price!

Yes, it's a nice hardware. Some say the default ROM is not so good, but there are better alternatives out there (VEGAn seems to be popular). If you are up to spending a few hours flashing some files it might be a worthwhile investment. Although, I think as a wall panel it will be fine as it is.
