A lot of spec for the money. Remember import duty is a possibility.

Very true. I've only been caught once and i've had a couple of boxes from China. I think it was around £6 or £7 in the end - wasn't from Gearbest though.

Anyone know any decent addons... Other than Genesis and navy
Phoenix, exodus, live mix and Turks are all good

Phoenix, Spartan, beast. Just watched a screener of batman vs superman on salts.
I bought this box last week from gearbest but it hasn't come yet. Gearbest send your stuff by Belgium to prevent customs getting hold of it. I've had about 10 items delivered from gearbest since Christmas and never been hit with vat.

OpenELEC builds for the S905 should be coming out eventually, if not early builds already. Something to look forward to.

Didn't think HUKD allowed deals form China?

Ths S805 chipset was better supported by developers, probably due to price at the time. I know of one developer that will be porting it to S905 eventually. I'm not sure about this exact box though.

I believe so.
forgive me, but how would you watch new movies on this?
I have this box... originally tried to buy from Gearbest but it was "lost" in the post by Yodel. Paid a bit more a bought it from an ebay seller in the end. I flashed an Openelec build on it and it works great, I had a few issues with Android but it's really stable now with Openelec.

You can see the Openelec builds discussed here http://amlinuxmedia.com/forum/index.php?topic=13.60
and the builds are available to download here http://amlinux.ru/image/devel/

I waited a while to buy one of these and did a lot of research, Openelec was a must for me. For the money this is great

Correction... the one I have is the MINI MX which costs about the same.

Good to know it's already being worked on. Thanks
There's no guarantee the MiniMX version will work perfectly on this box, unless it's the exact same innards.

With your eyes.
Do you actually get a UK PSU with this or do you get a 2 pin one with a crappy UK adapter?
Hi all , can I ask if anyone can recommend a good alternative on Amazon the does the same please.
I have been looking at Android tv/pc boxes for a while but being new to me I find it a bit confusing, plus it would be good to get some information from someone who knows what what they are talking about.
Thanks in advance.

It's probably entirely unrelated that Gearbest are signed up with Quidco, which by a happy coincidence is closely related to HUKD. There are big differences when buying direct from China compared with using a UK retailer. In fairness i have never had any problems with Gearbest but innocent punters should be made aware of the pros and cons involved.

What, scr already?

I checked sites before i left for work yesterday and didnt see one.
I love how this is basically a computer in a tiny box for £26 with capabilities I would have killed for 15 years ago, paying £1000 for something remotely as capable
can someone explain if i use apps like showbox can i use this box so its on my tv? can i use my phone as a remote for stuff like games?

Keep it in your pocket when you go the cinema.
Can I sideload Roku?
Anyone tried 10bit x265 content on these and know if they will actually play?

I've got an s805 which though fine with regular x265 content just can't handle 10bit.
