So if you connect this to a TV, you can get Windows on it?

I'd say thats a yes
Windows 8.1 pre installed!;)
Heat, would this be able to pass through dts-hd audio to my receiver?

Yes, it's just a tiny computer that can plug into a tv or monitor. Like a normal pc you still need a way to control it like a keyboard and mouse.
or this Intel one at £79.99

Hmm good question, you'd think the intel might have better support and updates but you can't rely on that... certainly the intel gets mixed reviews and I suspect this one is much the same performance wise. Great idea but do your research to set expectations.
from what understand both this & the intel stick have issues with Bluetooth keyboards. (some work some don't)
I think this might more of a Windows software issue rather than a hardware problem.
Also the is a Linux version of the intel stick cheaper but with less RAM & storage.
I'm tempted to buy the intel stick windows version as its 2GB RAM and install quasi Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS as i understand Ubuntu does not have the issues Windows does with bluetooth Keyboards.

Not bad. Will usb to Ethernet connectors work with this?

I love things that say FREE WINDOWS 10 UPGRADE.

Well thats because the windows 10 upgrade is free from microsoft.
Considering it's basically a windows tablet without a screen it seems a little expensive.

That is a very good point, I presume you could just get a windows tablet with hdmi out and just put that round the back of the TV and connect a bluetooth keyboard and mouse?. I suppose I can't really see the point of this, whilst it seems neat, I find I only sit at a computer or laptop if I want to type something. Pretty much everything else now that excludes typing can be done with a tablet or phone, and chromecast deals with streaming stuff to a bigger screen. I can't see that people would want to use their main tv like a PC either, so where would you use this?

You're paying for the small size I guess..... but a small tablet certainly will do the same thing more or less.

I think there is a niche for these. E.g. turn the TV in the bedroom into an all in one PC.
Just to mention, if you want to stream movies etc, no Ethernet NIC and no 802ac Wireless Nic, will slow your streaming experience (NIC = Network card)
Can I play GTA V on this?

It is. I have one. Upgraded to Windows 10 and runs really well. Android on it is a bit naff but there if you want the option
This is beyond impressive! Using mine at the minute.. Just make sure you order a 128gb micro sd card with it!

If you're trying to buy this for gaming then you're way off mark. It's unsuitable by today's standards. It has 2gb memory.. and has an igpu which is standardly weak. You wont be able to play this or if you can, barely well unless there's some extreme sorcery involved that I am unaware of oO

​I thought the free Windows 10 upgrade ended at the end of July?
The free upgrade has gone it was only for a year
Anyone tried something like this for xbox streaming?

​It was. Unless you use Assistive Technologies. if you do it's still an available free upgrade.
So, I've currently got a mac-mini from 2007...it's running an Intel duo core 2 1.83...I'm running window 7 (32 bit) with 3gb of ram (4gb but only 3 usable). I use it as my plex server but I don't use transcoding (direct).

would this be similar in performance?

Would love to get rid of Mac mini and have something smaller!
