We just were forced to upgrade our X1 "cable box" in order to support "CBS all access" and other recent apps. Here are my issues: 1) the fan on the new box is noticably louder than the previous (~4yo) box. It is very distracting in a small quiet room. 2) the box is just as slow and laggy as the old box, moving between menus, scrolling across selections is painful. I really expected a (generational) improvement in performance after 4 years. 3) the direction arrows on the new remote are terrible, very hard to activate. I wish we had the old remote. 4) The Peacock app is just as slow as it was on the previous generation X1 box. Compared to the Android app, the X1 app is awful. Really dissapointing.
