Whoever uploaded the image, thanks. For some reason the image was trying to upload wouldn't work.
for the money it's a good box
Looking for something to replace an aging WD media box. But need more than 2 usb ports (as I have 2x 2Tb attached HD's). So, will this handle a usb hub? or is there anything with more than 2 usb ports?

Also, is there a problem transferring content over wifi to these boxes? That's how I do it with the WD, but I tried with a mates Android box and nothing would transfer over?? Thanks...

People will say yes, people will say no. Theres no law regarding using them.
If you're selling them its another kettle of fish, they're trying to crack down on sellers but again theres no law in place hence them all over on eBay and Amazon.
At the end of the day your streaming so I wouldn't worry.
Its a good little box I had one to review, didn't get that keyboard though.

Receiving streamed content is not illegal, well it wasn't.
Wouldn't the s912 chipset be better?

It's newer with more power (8 cores on the cpu), but has few apps because it's so new.

Depends what you want to run, the guy that makes LibreELEC for example says he won't be doing a 912 version as he has no time. He can barely keep up with devolvement of the 905 version.

Multiple members of team Kodi and their buying guide says to avoid all S912 boxes. If you just want it for android then yeah maybe, but they are all apparently pretty buggy.

This deal is way overpriced anyway.
I took a chance on a box today on amazon £19.99 2gb / 8gb I even posted it on here and it got took down within a minute it was getting hot!

If anybody's interested in the spec let me know and I'll send you the link

Having an android box is clearly not illegal, no more than having an android phone is.
Having Kodi, is also no illegal.
Selling a box loaded with add-ons designed to allow the user to stream content is illegal
https://www.fact-uk.org.uk/multi-agency-crackdown-on-illegal-tv-set-top-boxes-results-in-five-arrests/

Fact are quoted as saying the following
" When it comes to catching those involved in piracy, it is not our strategy to prosecute the end user. Our interest lies in identifying, disrupting and if necessary prosecuting the individuals who defraud the creative industries by knowingly stealing content – and who then make that content available through illegitimate means for their own financial benefit or kudos.”

This quote applies mainly to those uploading torrents, but, if you apply this streaming, it would require that they are able to identify that people are streaming any particular content at any particular time, which they currently cannot (and in all likelihood are unable to find all but the stupidest people uploading content in most cases).
It is possible to arrest and presecute someone selling a box, for profit, which facilitates piracy, as it is easy to establish their guilt.
Establishing that someone has watched an episode of Game of Thrones on a computer they legally own, with open source software, linking directly to a server, and without sharing the file in any way to a third party, is virtually impossible without imposing some very invasive monitoring, and, even then, would that person actually be guilty of anything? Having not made the content available, and having not made a copy of that media?
If you did establish that the watching of the media was a crime, could you then actually establish who had watched it?
