Hot Air Popcorn Popper

I am looking for any and all opinions on the "Old-Fashioned Movie Time Popcorn Maker" by Nostalgia Electrics. This table-top device is a hot air popcorn maker that would be a perfect addition to my very modest Home Theater. There doesn't seem to be any reviews or info other than purchase information online.

We're going to have a giveaway for these later in the month sponsored by HTMarket.com who carries these poppers.

Well, I broke down and purchased this machine tonight. Looks cool out of the box. However, if you are looking to supply popcorn to more that 2 people, this is not the machine for you. Also, when using the recommended amount of kernels, once the machine starts working and the corn starts popping, ALOT of unpopped kernels are forced out of the machine as the kernels are popped. Can also be quite messy as some kernels continue to pop in the bowl.

Overall, for the price ($39.95 at Bed Bath & Beyond here in NJ, $49.95 most everywhere else) it's not a bad machine.
