Just checked, my voucher code has exceeded its max usage on site, so my offer has expired anyway (The offer banner is still visible, but you get blocked at checkout).

I use one of the air mouse remote with my M8s and it's great.

Aren't they about to make the use of these for torrents illegal or something?
Is this box well supported?

I've got the Plex app for android installed my android device. It can access content on my Plex server (PC), but I've not been able to use the android device as a content server.

The new law came into effect last month with jail term going from 2 to 10 years. It seems like they're targetting distributors rather than the end users, but I wouldn't be surprised if they do prosecute end users just to set an example.

Also, more and more Kodi add-ons are being shut down.

I current have fire stick, now tv box and chromecast for Netflix, nowtv and Amazon TV. It's a right faff using three. Would one of these feel like a more slick experience? Or would the app on a TV screen feel less good than the bespoke versions for the other devices. Basically is this really just for Kodi users (which I'm not)

Its an Android device (like a tablet or phone) without a screen, as it uses a TV. If there is an app for Android (there is definitely for Amazon video, as I know someone using a A95X for this purpose), then you can use this. Kodi is just an app, these boxes simply come with it pre-installed and with some add-ons. You do not have to use it. If you don't like the TV skin, you can even make it look more like a normal android interface by installing an app like Nova Launcher

No problem usually, all the power supplies I've had are 110v to 240v.
You can order a UK power supply from ebay no problems (about £3), if you prefer.

i personally dont use any addons which make it illegal. kodi if used for what its meant for is an outstanding media player. been using it since it was xbmc on the old trusty xbox since the early 00's. couldnt handle hd files back then mind unless you had special cables.

I have a wetek play 2 which includes either a freesat or freeview connection, so doesn't rely solely on internet. runs kodi, and has proper DRM licence for netflix and other similar apps. this means it runs netflix in 1080 (or 4k when update is released). this box will not do 1080p netflix. most likely 480p.

UK adapter seem to be back in stock again and the 'ELEC' code is still working.

Does anyone know how long deliverytakes? I ordered this the day the offer was posted and still nothing. tracking number provided doesn't show anything either

​Normally between 12 & 20 days with other boxes I've ordered with Banggood if it wasn't a pre-order.

​Forgot to say that the tracking code they give you can be checked on the Royal Mail track and trace system.

mine came yesterday - all looks good not plugged in yet tho.

was delivered with a uk power cable/plug and a uk travel adapter! quite strange that!

Got mine on Wed, and purchased mainly for Skype on tv. I have to say it runs fast and much better than on the original app from Samsung. And also I like super speed on youtube and internet browser when keyboard and mouse are connected. So smart box for that amount The only thing (must be sky restriction) is that sky go is working but does not let display video, just error message and audio. Happy days!

Hi, when did you place your order please? Mine shipped on 9th of June and I still waiting for it.

Only downside so far is that the launcher keeps defaulting back to the system/stock launcher when rebooted and the stock launcher loses the apps added to quick launch when rebooted. The stock launcher is terrible. There is no root available for the box yet. There are a couple of firmware updates out there that can be flashed but these appear to have some malware in them according to those that have tried them but they did report a performance boost, malware aside. I'm sure there will be a descent rooted firmware available for this box soon.

Cheers, just checked and I get the impression I might not be getting mine.

Date: 12/06/17

Status: ARRIVED IN THE UK
Track point: HEATHROW WORLDWIDE DC

My tracking was the same as yours. Arrived 5 days after the date on the status. Was never updated to say it was out for delivery or had been delivered, so don't worry about it.

Mine arrived today. it seems to be completely dead, no lights on when plugged in, tv not recognising it
any suggestions??

ETA think its the power supply. how to I identify the pin size I need. I have other 5v adaptors, but the pin is too big. And I have power adaptors of higher and lower voltage - can these be used?
