Decent spec'd box for the price. I find most of the complaints about these boxes are usually wireless performance. This one has 802.11ac, so should be nice and speedy for you to stream your Peppa Pig episodes

Not a bad spec at all.

I've been looking for something to replace my 1st Gen Fire Stick.

The 3GB Ram is nice to have.

Been after a box for a while! Would this be decent for Emulation? Mostly want it as a TV/Movies box (Showbox or alternative) + Emulation of Snes, PS1 etc, sort of an emulation station thingy

Looking at these instead of my fire stick to load kodi and no limits build on ,what improvements would I see ???

This or Nvidia shield? Basically it needs to have the easiest of interface. So it can play Amazon Prime, Vudu, Netflix and Google play. I also looked at a Roku a little while ago.

Is Kodi even worth having these days ? I thought a lot of the addons are dead ?
Isn’t it better to just use a Mag box and have an IPVT provider who uploads everything, so all TV , and movies and TV programs. ( not that I would have this , it’s illegal! )

The RAM wouldn't have a huge effect on the processing speed of the device. That will most likely be down to the processor and OS of the two devices. Your processor on the older box may be faster.

The RAM is only noticeable when you are multi-tasking, using multiple applications at once.

Probably this looking at the specs. If all you want to do is watch TV / Youtube on it then a Shield TV is probably overkill.

I've got the Shield and can't rate it any more highly. Where it comes into its own though is the PC game network streaming, Nvidia game streaming service and the great wireless controller / remote.

I don't know how the two boxes compare from a performance perspective but I'd be amazed if this Tanix box can compete from that perspective but it's likely more than adequate as a video content player.

I've got the same processor as this one. I bought mine on gearbest and they send me my one, soon as i seen is rubbish i was contact with seller and they replace the unit, (other unit was exactly the same) lost WiFi signal every 20min or just stop responding for any comments from remote control.

Most of the common brands suffer with 2 problems. Overheating and WiFi issues. Both of which can be fixed but not without modification.
The first being lack off, or no ventilation on the box top.Adding better heatsinks and cutting holes in the case fixes the problem.
The second involves moving the WiFi antenna to a new position that is away from noisy circuitry. I moved mine actually outside the case and had no further weak signals or dropouts.

Looks like there is no remote in the box so you will need to add extra on top!
Decent specs, heat added

Admittedly I'm sick of Black Friday posts but it might be worth the wait. Last year I picked one up for £89.99 (Prime & Audible discount). My prediction for 2017 is £109.99 as the newer model includes the remote & refreshed controller.

It's a good quality bit of kit, but as others have mentioned, if you're not going to use the game streaming features it's possibly overkill.

When one addon dies another takes it's place surely? Anyway if you have an Android box you're not limited to Kodi. I don't use it as it looks like a llittle bit too much work to me when Terrarium TV works well and I still download torrents.

I'm not sure about this one but I have a cheaper model and it comes with the mobile version of android and not android TV. I've had to download a 3rd party app because it doesn't support android TV remote and it also doesn't support Chromecast. It does the job however for IPTV and Kodi streaming from my VU+ and from my NAS.

I bought a Nvidia shield 2 years ago for £100 new on Amazon on Black Friday. Best purchase ever. Maybe they will be reduced this year also.

Very good spec for the price. Bought a T95Z a few weeks back for about £70 with similar specs, and I've had a few issues with it that I've finally ironed out. I would have gone for this if I'd known.

Thanks buddy, I'm keen to have all my content in one place, so this looks like a good option. Gaming sadly seems a distant memory, does Nvidia link to steam without a PC, that would be a game changer, literally

I think black Friday could be the way forwards, I looked a previous deals and the price was great. I could definitely manage 109, fingers crossed. I need to look more into the gaming options, my old pc managed my steam collection well, but I'm unsure if I want to run both on the off chance of revisiting RE5 or Alien. Ideally I need something that will update but also something so simple that people can use it when I'm not in.

Can someone tell me what the main benefits are of having one of these boxes. What does it give you that a normal 4k smart tv cant? Yes Im thick where this tech is concerned

Basically you can download a lot of movies and TV box sets for free. It is illegal but a lot do it, the downside is sometimes the programme stutters as the servers struggle to match demand (especialy at weekends) but in 70% of the cases it works fine.

Not much different to having say netflix and downloading from a torrent site then. Thanks

a friend of mine uses amazon fire tv box for iptv. works great on stbemu... well so iv been told. and the kodi is also on the box

Does this actually have 3gb of ram or like many of these types of boxes it has 1gb and lies to you.

You will get Netflix in 480p/SD on any box which does not have the Widevine v1 DRM certification as well as HDCP 1.x. The Nividia shield definitely meets these requirements. and further runs Android TV OS compared to this box which has a customised Android 7.1 skin. The Nvidia shield is also 3 x priced, so horses for courses I guess.

If you want to run Netflix in HD an equivalent option would be the Mecool M8S Pro L (note the 'L' at the end) which does have Widevine L1 and HDCP1.x; one of the very few Chinese boxes to meet Netflix HD requirements.

I have to disagree to a certain extent. I've had crappy old Android boxes that are slow (the Fire Stick is also slow for example) whereas this box will suffer minimal lag and has better wifi properties than boxes of similar price.

Thanks buddy I'll check this out too and wait for black Friday, fingers crossed. Would prefer HD so would rather get something that will last as long as my TV
