I know it says it RRP's at stupid amounts, but I paid £64.99 over christmas for this box and haven't seen it cheaper on Amazon. I would recommend it to anyone. Was looking at prices, as was recommending to a friend and figured I would post it here.

This is 8-cores, hence the price jump as the standard for these boxes tend to be 4-cores. The S912 processor is the best one you can get at the moment, the next down is the S905 and S905X. There have been mixed reviews about the speed difference between 4 and 8 cores, which is due to the firmware not yet being optimized for the S912 (yet). There STILL is a speed difference though, I have this box and you have 8 cores working instead of 4.

The 2GB RAM, is good much better than 1GB. You can get 3GB RAM boxes, but they seem to cost alot more. I personally don't believe the RAM is bottlenecked at much 2GB, even with alot of add-ons open I've never seen it rise above 1.5GB. Whether it utilizes the RAM better, because it has more available (similar to Windows 10) I can't say for certain, but would imaging dropping down to 1GB would mean a big performance drop in these boxes. I know I picked up a ProBox about 4 years ago, and its currently in the loft because of how slow it is compared to todays.

Just to compare with the current trends, the Q-Boxes range from £40-£50 but they are all Quad core. They are still VERY good boxes. S905 is great, and its the one I have in another room. The linked box has a better spec, with a lower price. Haven't really tried the others. I know you can get a quad core for £20 if you wait long enough, but it doesn't tend to tick ALL the boxes and usually either has older firmware, 1GB Ram, no Gigabit ethernet, or less video encoding options.

Here is another box that is £2 cheaper:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Wechip-Android-Amlogic-S912-Octa/dp/B01N3YTD4R/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1487162688&sr=8-1&keywords=Wechip+H96

The spec seems exactly the same, but I don't own this box. If you wish to save the £2 you can get this. I know it has Kodi 17, but personally I prefer the look of the one I linked because its been on the market for a while (and fulfilled by Amazon).

There is a performance tweak recommended by another user: Start kodi, Go to Settings or System, then Video, scroll down to Acceleration,there will be 3 options enabled on the right, the top one that says, Allow hardware acceleration-amcodec, UNCHECK THAT OPTION. then just restart Kodi.

I didn't actually need to perform this on mine over christmas, but just making you aware incase it doesn't have the latest update installed out the box. I don't think this is needed anymore though.

Even if you don't agree this is a deal, its still good for the HotDeals library that Oct-Core S912 boxes were at a low on Amazon at this point in February 2017.

It's money off RRP, its a deal. But just because its cheap doesn't mean you need to buy it. ;)

Happy hunting!

The whole Kodi experience has been spoiled by massive over-subscription in the last 6 months or so...ever since the FireStick/Box deals were on here. Now I see there is even a big 'guide to Kodi' in the latest WebUser mag...I honestly don't know how they have the cheek to publish it whilst giving advice on how to install Exodus, SALTS & Specto etc, which are 100% illegal streaming add-ons. I'm not saying people shouldn't use Kodi for this reason but it's far too out in the open now, and it's only a matter of time before the Movie studios and pay broadcasters start clamping down heavily on something that was great...illegal, but great! :(

...sounds a decent price for the spec though, so heat 8)

That's not what is being said.
All this publicity simply means that this is the beginning of the end of Kodi as we know it. I doubt it's worth investigating £40 anymore. Go for a cheaper box..

Kodi has been well known since before it was kodi, they have been selling android boxes specifically for piracy openly on amazon for years. The recent publicity is just it filtering to the last level of less technical people, the movie studio's etc. were already well aware of it.

What is killing it is greed, now that people are trying to charge for better access to streams etc. things have changed. Same with a lot of things, like private plex servers. When people are making money off piracy that's when the cops start appearing and things start clamping down.

Nope, its the same. The only difference will be the spec. If you bought a QuadCore one, you don't really need to upgrade. They pretty much do all they're going to do now, but if you don't have one already I would recommend picking up this one.

To be honest, I've never owned a Firestick. I know you need to sideload apps on, because it isn't "full" android but I don't know if the features are limited compared to the TV box. If it does what you need it to do, then no.

This device will be more powerful and faster, and there are a few extra features you can get with any android TV box (connecting your phone for MobDro or plugging a HDD in for recording/videos) but if you don't need those then you will probably be fine. Alot of people swear by firesticks, but I swear by boxes. FireSticks are better because they take up less "physical" space, but the TV box would offer a few more features. I would imagine they're the only differences, so if the features are worth it to you then go for it. Otherwise, no need. :)

Is the sky sports bt sports and sky movies perfect picture ? My router is 3 feet from tv do I need high speed fibre boadband ?

The pictures for these now are HD quality, dependable on your internet connection. This, and the sources are the main bottleneck now (but the sources have been really good the past year). I've ALWAYS had Fibre, so I wouldn't know what speed you would need exactly but it doesn't NEED to be Fibre I know that much. A good connection definately helps, if you get 5-10MB down you should be fine.

To be honest, if you are looking for live football and expect a perfect rock solid and HD picture you'll be disappointed. You can get HD occasionally but very rarely for the whole match without buffering...usually, you may get 2 or 3 minutes before it throws a wobbly! You are better off looking for reasonably good quality SD sources and being happy that you can actually watch the match...as for 4K, forget it! X)

It is dependant on the match/channel you watch, I know Mobdro sources for the popular channels are really good. If you watch the sports on the internet, it will be as good as what you can get on there. I have seen a match in FullHD though, or at least it was close enough that I didn't notice the difference.

I will probably go against what I said earlier, because I've only ever really watched popular matches when I have people round.The ones on foreign channels (I would imagine) are a bunch of shart, maybe some of the popular channels are too. The movie/series sources are much better, Exodus or Zem are good for that. I can say that for certain.

I'm a bit cautious of the legality of these, but was given a "trongle s1pro" for Christmas and have used kodi and "Wookiee" to give me "exodus" which lets me stream many things neither my Netflix or Amazon accounts have, so that's nice. Not quite as good quality though, and considerably worse sound (seems to be only stereo) but I'm a 4K user with fancy surround sound so am used to a different level of experience, and I appreciate this isn't to be expected to be as good as a paid experience.
Anyway, is there any reason to get this box instead? I can't say the s1pro has ever felt slow. The only slow bit is a "waiting" message when looking for streams, but that's surely internet searching not box speed dependant.

ofc you don't use KODI for that do you, you just use it for its media streaming capabilities lol

let's get real here, who would buy an Android box just to.use stick KODI, about 0.000001% of buyers.

no.use saying they should prosecute mags, but not people using it, that's called hypocrisy. Again, you are inferring magazines shouldn't advertise so that it doesn't ruin your exclusive little KODI club.

can't have it both ways my friend......

Yeah it can be for some, it boils down to how much value it would have in your house. You can't exactly hook your PC to the TV in the living room for example. There are some great deals on Kodi boxes that are around £20 if you don't want the best tech though. I believe somebody mentioned the S1pro, and weren't complaining about the speed. :)

...no, never said that at all...try reading the post again! What I'm saying is that Kodi used to be great but is now so popular it's not so great...just pointing out the inevitability really ;)
...although I do think 'fully loaded' boxes for sale and nationally published mags printing guides on how to get illegal streams should be prosecuted...that's just taking the p155!!! :(
ofc you don't use KODI for that do you, you just use it for its media streaming capabilities lol
let's get real here, who would buy an Android box just to.use stick KODI, about 0.000001% of buyers.
no.use saying they should prosecute mags, but not people using it, that's called hypocrisy. Again, you are inferring magazines shouldn't advertise so that it doesn't ruin your exclusive little KODI club.
can't have it both ways my friend......

I use Kodi for the same reasons most others do...never said I didn't :| Making money from enabling people to break the law should be prosecutable...as in the example of WebUser and the sellers of 'fully loaded' boxes. What an individual does with their android box is up to them and their conscience...and most probably at some time in the future, the law courts (_;)

...it's not my Kodi club, it certainly ain't little and I'm pretty sure you're not my friend :)

I am a well travelled elderly man interested in this electronic product. Would this be suitable for watching possibly not legal broadcasts of professional Armenian carpet bowls? And would 320x144 dots at 12bpm be doable on my penny dialup connection? The gentlemen at my local bowling club have suggested so but have lied on other issues recently. A little expert knowledge before investing would be greatly appreciated. Good day sirs.

I would recommend a subscription service for sports, I use Sportsmania.eu and I get every sporting event in HD with no buffering, works out about £4 a month. Had this for about 4 months now and would never go back to the days of buffering and trying numerous sources over and over.
Sportsnation, their sister company is my choice, due to there own GUI Build being better suited to Sportsnation than Sportsmania , but both offer exactly the same excellent content for between £24-£27 dependant on payment method for 6 months.
Also Ultimatemania for just over £50 for 6 months if you want all the worldwide Entertainment channels as well Sports package as well.

The friend I'm buying the box for is after cancelling SkySports because its too expensive. This would probably be something I would recommend to him, are these services as legal as Netflix (out of pure curiousity)? I know its illegal to "use" majority of the Kodi apps, I would imagine they are the same you just pay for convenience?

Thanks for the info...I think I'm going to give SportsNation a go for 3 months, if I leave it 'til the end of this month it should take me to the end of the season. Cheers :D

How old is your box? I never play movies through HDD so I don't know the answer, but I found a few forums discussing it working for some boxes and not others. These forums were back in 2015, so 2 years later I would hope so?
