I setup this last Saturday and it was quite easy, and this comes from a person who has never used Android in his entire life before. I first removed the included version of XBMC since it was not the latest version, and installed the latest version from the XBMC site. Then I started to load several program and video add-ons, and that's it.

I recommend the video add-on 1Channel, it's so amazing that this little box is worthwhile just for this program alone. You can search for any film or TV series and start watching in a few minutes. Some of them are in full HD quality too. Filmon is also cool to watch the BBC and ITV channels, though their quality is not stellar.

By the way, I also recommend buying a a Bluetooth keyboard for this, it comes in quite handy when you need to type those pesky captchas. I bought this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00GTQ0J4G. The air mouse (which was supplied with the box) works, but you need to tone down the mouse sensitivity to a more sensible value first - as it is, it's way too sensitive. Also, remember to charge the Air Mouse before using it, using the supplied USB cable - I've seen people complaining that their Air Mouse does not work... maybe they haven't charged it first?

Overall one of my best money investments I've ever made in my life.

I was going to initially buy an Amazon Fire TV but I didn't like the fact that it was locked down to Fire OS and I had to buy all my Android apps again through Amazon's App Store. The Fire TV also only has 8GB on board storage which leaves around 5GB as the OS takes the rest. This box is speedy, powerful, well made, extremely customisable and overall has been a good experience setting it up. The only downside is that you have to have some knowledge of using XBMC/Kodi to get it to it's full potential but I would imagine the majority of people buying this will have experience in this field.

Definitely the best Android TV box out there.

Great bit of kit and does its job well (Kodi media streaming). The supplied IR remote is less than useless and the included air mouse isn't all that great either. The box itself is incredibly fast and capable of anything I have thrown at it. Playing GTA San Andreas with a Xbox 360 control pad is quite good also.

Fantastic, it can rip through high quality 4k mp4 mkv files with ease. No lag what so ever. Would have given it a 5 star if it could play BBC i player and the soft ware is a dated. At times it does stop a video while you're watching it. This is definitely software and not hardware issue. But this would only happen once or twice a month.

Very good value for money as it has 16gb build in hard drive storage and i also can use external hard drive.

I use this to run XBMC, and it runs flawlessly. I have owned other android boxes in the past, but Minix Neo X8-H is the best.

Great product, I use it every day - but the Minix crew are very slow at developing it so if it has a few bugs they probably won't get fixed for months.

I'm quite an enthusiast user so I enjoy these devices and trying to bend them to my will, but I wouldn't recommend it for people who want a stable/finished device.

Well what a great little box after looking for something to replace my ageing htpc I settled on this I only really use xbmc/kodi and it works perfectly a letter to play full 1080p content no problem.

The supplied air mouse is also really good although using a Bluetooth keyboard for those pesky security things.
