Paying premium for a Smart TV buying is the dumb way to go.
You will always stay ahead buying plug-in type units so for now, this is the way to go..

Expensive Smart TV's without removable PC modules are dumb

If you go for this one be aware that the wifi can be a bit of a problem, the main way to improve it is to not plug the keyboard or whatever you use directly into it but to use a separate usb hub or to use an extension lead.

The newer model are better.

~Is this not the newer model ?

I thought these couldn't play HD mkv's in xmbc and the like due to a lack of HW acceleration. Is that not the case anymore?

dunno but forum.xbmc.org/sho…519

I'm a bit confused over the models now.. There's a 802mk 802mk+ 802mk ii 802mk iii.. I believe this one (802mk+) is a beefed up first generation but can't be sure yet.

It will stutter constantly with XMBC as it only has SW decoding. XMBC for Android is still beta so hopefully it will work better with just SW in the future but for it to work properly at the moment, you need HW.

No this is the MK802 the latest model is the MK809 amazon.co.uk/dp/…ITI

Flash 11 , Skype , Youtube , ITV, BBC iPlayer, DLNA, uPNP Play, 3D, Great for Watching HD Movies, Youtube Videos, Surfing Internet, Online TV, Android Game

Just bought this and its brilliant as long as you update firmware from mk809.com/cs1…tml

Worth the extra tenner for a much better unit.

I meant latest version of 802

If they all use RK3066 then surely they all have the same capability, firmware excepted,

BTW that ebay ones is an exception, Not the 4 core GPU but probably a single core.

Strangely the Amazon one does not say Mali 400 mp4 but claims Mali 400 mp4 speed !

I'd suggest the MK809 is some knock-off competitor so do your research. The latest MK802 is not the + but the II.

Can you condense all that to one ..

What is different between the ebay k9 and amazon k9 ? Where does it say mali 400 MP gpu is not 4 cored?

As an Android developer I quite fancy one of these - snag is, most of my games are "portrait" and my TV is landscape...

Good luck with that part of it - there's quite a lot of 'portrait only' apps - hell there's parts of the Android OS which are 'portrait only'

As a media player and gizmo, you can't argue with £40 can you?

If you actually want a high quality HD media player - the WDTV is probably a better buy tho - does less but but it does, it does better!?

Tegra 3 uses Mali a Quad core Mali 400 (mp4) as does the RK3066.
They like to make big claims so if it don't say quad core GPU, its likely because it ain't. Its also complicated by the fact that some SOCs have an extra video decoder or VPU.

The MK802 is made by Rikomagic.

The MK809 website is likely to be just someone nicking the MK name.

Ok now I'm curious. Do you use these by plugging into a powered USB hub and then hdmi to the TV?

Nope......

Always been interested in one of these units but not sure how they actually perform.

How much faffing is involved in getting these working reliably?
We're interested in getting one as a gift for a non-technical person... judging by the above comments, I'm not sure it's a good idea.

not to bad if they are familiar with using an Android phone or tablet

Interesting. ..may have to treat myself to another Christmas pressie

IIRC the big benefit of the MK808 or 809 over the 802 is the additional heatsink and improved ventilation. These things do get very hot.

Has anyone ordered from this site before?, because the feedback is a bit worrying.

I bought the MK808 about 3 weeks ago and put up a simple video review of it here. It cost me the sum total of US$51.99 shipped from China. Runs very cool (slightly warm to the touch) and is pretty damn snappy for such a tiny unit.

I'm led to believe that the MK808 is a big improvement over the MK802 - there's even an MK808+ with built in bluetooth now as well.

Hi, I'm interested in one of these. Was looking at a WDTV but don't want to pay £80 as only for the bedroom.

Is this the best of this type, or is there a better one that I should be looking at? I'd only be playinf avi/mkv files from a usb stick, although if there was a way of getting sky go to work on this that would be a huge bonus.

Thanks for any advice.

The mk809 is a different chipset to this. Its much faster for a start.
Id probably get the mk809 over this, all the rk3066 devices ive used were a nice experiance whereas the allwinner were a bit lacking imo.

I think you need amlogic based android devices for hw accelerated xbmc, but iirc those only come in stb not stick form factor.

download an app called rotation locker, it forces any and ever app into landscape which is perfect for a TV stick (can't think of a reason why you'd want portrait)

Can you browse the Internet with this unit? Is this essentially a tablet on the tv?

Whereabouts did you order from, and what about customs?

I had a UG802, until the dodgy soldered micro-USB port broke off

Thanks for the review mate. Enjoyed it. So is this one for sale better than yours? Set up for yours seems to be easy and like you said, its snappy.

Seems perfect for what I want it for but I'm not a techie person so essentially want something that is plug and play but still is a good unit.

Gtd65, where did you get yours from? Any UK sellers? Which is the latest version then as I'm unsure going by the comments above.

So the one in the eBay link and the one in the Amazon link, they are both different yeah? So which one is better?

Amazon one has very good reviews, albeit only 2 reviews in total.
