Better spec but the one in the OP is a good deal with UK delivery so should be quick. The thing with the android boxes is if it's not amlogic don't bother buying it.
A friend has one of these and he's really happy with it

Will the firmware get updated or will it die with what comes with?
HEVC support is nice though remains to be seen if anyone will encode 1080p and lower using it enough to matter.
1gb voted cold.

Officially, probably not, like most of these boxes. Amlogic are good with sources though so it should be possible in the future unofficially.

H.265 is the codec of the future so it won't be used just for UHD content.
You can get a much better and faster box for a little bit extra.
5ghz WiFi, 2gb ram, gigabit Ethernet, s812 chip instead of slow s805.
Better kitkat ROM, lollipop if u want it, as well as openelec.

​M8S is not the same as Tronsmart MXIII Plus.

Firmware and support is better. last firmware update on 1/9/15.
Components are also better on MXIII.

​im currently running Jarvis on my amlogic s812. you need to change some permissions.
here is a guide I made.

1gb of ram is perfectly fine for these boxes - 512mb works as well if you're just using it as a streaming box of DLNA front end with Kodi for a NAS drive, as I do.

I'm going to upgrade my M8S to this one once i've sorted my finances out ..

The remotes always let these things down. I'm tempted nonetheless and will simply use an iOS app on openelec.
Does anyone know what comes with the MK808B Plus. Ordered one yesterday from the EU warehouse it says EU plug but in the questions they say they provide the suitable plug for your location ?. Hoping to install openelec on it as i already have a minix neo x6 with android.

Good luck, Rockchip are a pile of junk, my higher spec rockchip device is a complete and utter waste of time, glitchy and slow, my lower spec amlogic destroys it userbility wise. Amlogic has proper kodi support as well, rockchip is hit and miss at best. My next jump from my amlogic m805 will be the s905 or s912, although the bargain s812's are tempting.

Retail packaging + a UK plug adapter when I got mine at the end of last year. Works well apart from the wifi is abysmal, barely works at any range (few metres/walls, but everything else works perfectly). I've resorted to a wifi bridge and a usb Ethernet adapter. Mine was an early model though, I think they may be using a better wifi chipset now, make sure to update the firmware from the tronsmart site, mine at least won't ota.

​tvmc is rubbish and bloated learn how use kodi. installing tvmc is hardly setting up...
Thanks for the advise but when you are setting up so many up for different people it's quick and easy. Just because I choose the easy way to do it for friends doesn't mean I don't know how to use kodi.

Perhaps i won't get it after all then

This is the one i've got at the moment and, to be fair, there's no real compelling reason to upgrade in the near future considering what's under the hood.

Just a pity that openELEC won't work on it.

The GearBest website gives you a tracking number, but doesn't tell you where to track it!!
So, paste it into Yodel tracking... failing that, try this:

none of mine have ever buffered while watching HD films ..
m8 boxes are about at around £35 & have 2gb ram.
getting bored with these boxes now.looking into getting a mag 250 or 254 box doing some homework now to see what they are like.....
Anyone Tried Teevee with these boxes?
Good price for the box. Personally I'm still finding the Fire TV Stick perfect for running everything I want. Currently on the Isengard build with the theblackboxostv wizard and so far it plays everything with no issues installed it on 4 sticks for family.

Ye theres nothing wrong with TVMC its has the best addons loaded or at least the most stable ones.
For a newbie to kodi its the way to go.

Thought I would share my experience with this, installed open elec stable build it's fast and responsive. Handles all videos I have played well so far. Can't go wrong for the price
