Slightly more expensive than the last deal but actually less in USD this time round, so I believe it's down to exchange rate vs before.

    1GB RAM is barely usable. Spend a bit more to get a decent one.

    I have one of these. Fine for web browsing, YouTube or using as a media hub. That's all I use mine for.

    Can you download netflix,amazon prime video etc etc on this to watch movies and tv series since its android???

      No, there will likely be all kinds of reasons that it won't work (box is rooted, not certified etc).

    •  

      Prime will be SD. Stan will say no because rooted - I get around it by running in a browser. The others may work as long as it has the correct DRM listed in the specs.

      Netflix works fine but prime is choppy.

    Rather spend a bit more than this and get vodafone tv. This vtv can do 4k.

      Or better still, grab a nVidia Shield and know that all apps will work, and in 4k where available.

    Get an Amlogic 912/905 box, best for mixed 1080p/4k playback on libreelec or coreELEC

      Yep, I have a couple, though as standard some providers will not allow their apps because they are generally rooted. But the boxes usually have DRM so the other services are fine. Lots of stuffing around as well, and some boxes are easier to hack the other OS's onto than others. There are some MeCool Android TV firmwares around, and probably for other boxes as well?

      Really if you want a good experience and it is for the "lounge" room and for others to use, grab a Shield TV. No stuffing around and it supports all providers, and is supported by a reliable manufacturer. Plus it supports all surround formats including the non Dolby/DTS types via HDMI PCM.

        Shield does not support auto colour space switching so not good for mixed 1080P/4K viewing.

        Best to use an Amlogic 912/905 box with Libre/CoreELEC as a network media player and use something else for your apps like netflix.

          This may not be that big an issue for most people at the moment(not an issue without a HDR TV), especially vs setting up LibreELEC. The Shield did not have colour space switching, but does have perfect colour space matching from 2020 to the rec 709 gamut(Oreo update mid last year). The latest nVidia update has enable auto switching of colour spaces - Firmware 7.22.

          I had the Prime addon for Kodi running with LibreELEC, but it had poor updates, and was one of the reason I eventually decided to get a properly supported box. Under LibreELEC Kodi is the interface, so how do you access Stan, Netflix, Prime, and the other streaming services? Have you found a way to enable Chromecast with LibreELEC(not just DLNA)?
          When running under the default Android how do you get the Prime app to play in HD? How do you get the Stan App to run with the box being rooted? What about Netflix and the other services and their apps? Have you got Chromecast working somehow with the Amlogic boxes?

          Edit: For anyone wishing to try out the auto gamut selection in 7.2.2, you can find it here.

            @Major Mess: IMO streaming boxes are for playing downloaded movies and TV shows, not for streaming apps. Just use your smart TV for that as they have all the streaming apps and can do 4k HDR no problem.

            As far as I know there is nothing that will give you a perfect experience with both Kodi 1080p/4k and streaming apps so best to delegate the functions to seperate devices. Saying that, if you only play 1080p SDR content then shield or ATV are great and can do both well.

              @noise36: Smart TVs are fine, until the developer stops making apps for them.

              I have a Samsung smart TV and a Samsung Smart Blueray, yet have to use a WDTV (ancient!) for netflx, ABC, SBS

    Why a Shield and not ATV 4K?
