WOW so much better
on 21 February 2014
Have just received this and played with it past 8 hours and very surprised how snappy this is.
I have given a couple of android TV boxes a try in the past and sent them back freezing and crashing.
But now with the RK3188 rockchip I thought I would give it a go as my main use is for XBMC front end which the others just could not handle. This does with ease even the 1080 hd movie files I have streaming from my 2TB WD personal network storage, not a stutter streams perfect via wifi through 2 walls 12 meters away to my router.
I use XBMC on 3 other TVs using 3 old Dell optiplex's as front ends, I wanted something small for the kitchen and this fits the bill perfectly to the point I may change the other 3 areas over to these saving money on electric bills and on noise.
I nearly gave 4 stars only for the reason the supplied remote is near useless as a mouse but plugged in my wireless mouse and all great so not worried. Oh if you purchase this get yourself some AAA batteries as not supplied as you will surely want to play with this little magic box ASAP...
Google store is already installed on it. I found it tiresome searching to find a decent android remote control app for your android phone to use, RKremote does this fine though not in the App Store just google it will come up its a free download.
iplayer, 4od, Netflix also tested and perfectly working. Gaming I've not tested I'm not a gamer but can not see a reason for it not to do this well, it's a little power house on a budget, best android tv box/stick I have tried
Can not fault this.
