I wanted a cheap way to get NetFlix onto my TV. Having looked at 2nd hand WII's and XBox's I then saw this and it is much cheaper & new.
Having used this today for the first time I'll say this - If you want to access NetFlix, YouTube, Picasa and the weather (?) on your TV, cheap, then get this box imo. Issues? Not really in my view but:
* It does come with a 2 pin plug, so you need a plug converter like you'd use with a rechargeable shaver.
* On Netflix you do have to choose the sound type each time you watch a programme or you get no volume. Unless you have a Dolby set up I imagine, as Dolby 5.1 is the default.
* You have an Ethernet cable supplied but no HDMI lead, so you need your own.
However, this box is £25 and it works perfectly well. It comes with it's own miniature remote of perfectly decent quality which has a dedicated NetFlix button and is about the size of a largish car key remote.
I have seen someone being negative about this box - what do people want for £25? It has zero major issues for that price and it is certainly no slower than my Android tablet.
If this box was £150, then OK, maybe I'd whine about having to choose the sound, yes it can be a bit slow and the plug needs a converter.
But to repeat myself, it is £25, it's simply brilliant for that money.
