But really with a good network chipset you don't need the extra expense. It's all too frequent in my experience with these windows tablet and boxes from China and even big brands too with wifi chipset problems.
Thanks OP. Heat added for the spot and a decent price, but I'm also sceptical about that 2GB. The search continues...
Cenovo mini PC is better. Got it for less than £60 few years back and have it for over 2 years, still works pretty well. It has similar spec to this (2GB ram 32GB storage) but even better it can dual boot android <-> Win10 rather than Win10 <-> Linux.

Can even play games as well, GTA San andreas and Vice City on windows work just exactly like 10 years ago.

Edit: I think Cenovo mini PC production is dead.

Price is good, got my i7 just over a year ago for £321.35 so ~£70 difference but it was the older gen I7-6500U. Think you'd struggle to get another NUC for £250 with the same specs (besides some chinese one excluding potential import charges).

Have an i7 version of this, use as a development server. Only has integrated Intel gpu though so don't expect to play much besides older or 2D games.

Reading the info in the link you provided and then following a link given on that forum it actually contradicts what you're claiming:

avforums.com/rev…540

8 bit HEVC 4K is in fact achievable. Ok it's only up to 30fps but it still does it - according to that review.

So taking this and Reddit's actual experience as a user I'd say you've got a facts malfunction going on there

I would have done yourself a favour and got it right first time from knowing/checking the specs first and as a user of these boxes, H265 8 bit is smooth as butter in Kodi.

Notice that I said actual user, not somebody guessing, so not wrong but right from considerable experience of the Z83xx series SOC.
reddit7 h, 42 m ago

If you had owned such a device then you would not make such an ill …If you had owned such a device then you would not make such an ill informed post.Kodi works very well and breezes through 8 bit H265 and eats a lot of 4K for breakfast.Don't forget that HDMI 1.4 is adequate for 4k@30hz.Likewise, de-interlacing of live TV is fine.I have owned, used and tested 8 such boxes in the Z8300/Z8350 range and Kodi performance has been excellent with all of them.All that is required is understanding of the SOC limitations, which for the majority of uses, will be fine.Being a Windows based box too, services such as Netflix, Now TV, Sky, Amazon Prime, All 4 etc work out of the box, so no restrictions that are often found with Android boxes.As far as Windows is concerned, light tasks will be fine and effective browsing has to be done through Edge as Chrome performance on all Cherry Trail devices is poor.And when installing applications, make sure that you keep 8Gb free as many of the major OS updates require this to complete, so on board space may become an issues.Gigabit Ethernet and Dual band WiFi should keep streamers happy enough too.For the price, it's a good alternative to an Android box, where limitations on those prevent use of required services.

Yes, that's exactly what I'm saying.

Your Android box has dedicated hardware on the SOC to decode the 4K content, it's called "decoding in hardware".
Intel HD4000 has no such hardware, in fact even the last gen of Intel NUCs couldn't do 4K content without being an unwatchable skipping mess.

EDIT - See deal has been updated. My comment was about the HD4000...which this deal originally wrongly stated.

I'm not sure what you are asking because you have mentioned that both the ad and graphic mention the same thing, so wondered if you meant something else.

The hard disk expansion limit will refer to the maximum size that can be used in the docking bay expansion.

USB hard drive limitations will be dictated to by whatever capacity Windows can accept, which will be 2Tb for an MBR formatted drive and more for GPT.
How do the Intel HD Graphics 500 compare to HD 4000?

Yes for what this is and what the market is like today, £79 seems a good price. Certainly won't get a Windows device any smaller than this for this sort of money, except perhaps the HDMI sticks but those have limited inputs, usually the older Z3735 and all round just seem a worse design.

They may well have only released the Z8350 with a tiny increase to the … They may well have only released the Z8350 with a tiny increase to the boost clock speed and no other changes. If the Z8300 proved rock solid stable then to maximize profits, they may well have increased the boost clock speed on the exact same chip and re-released it as Z8350 to offer a 'newer' chip in a period they had not worked on a real new chip for release in that sector of the market. This would then let them hold the price steady. This may also explain why some reviews rate the new chip performance lower as on boost it would generate more heat and perhaps have slight problems. Though this is all speculation and would depend on individual device cooling anyway.This wouldn't be the first time something like that happened though. I had read that the GeForce GT610 is the exact same chip as the GeForce GT520.



It would seem the new chip is just faster and more reliable. I don't think it scored lower on the tests because of heating problems, if anything I think the results were probably affected by other factors and arn't entirely accurate. If it did, to be honest I would rather it run throttled and cooled as opposed to overheating/shutdown. If you see "Richard Steels" comment on the below article he is wondering if the new chips fix the "overheating" issue the devices have. The newer chip might of addressed this.

liliputing.com/201…tml

Also see Kaiwa's and etcha's comments on the below article pretty much backing my assuption about cooling. It's a cooler and better built machine with the new chipset.

I want to watch HD movies in my gpt formated 8 TB Harddisk by usb 3.0 docking station on Windows 10. I want to ask that Can I watch my hd movies from my gpt formated 8 tb hard disk on windows 10 ? I have lots of x265 x264 10bit flac 1080p movies and animes and I want to watch these without any problems I searched this product on the internet but No information found this device support NTFS Disks and max TB?
I bought on of these, and I have to say I am impressed. Took a month to arrive mind, but for the price as long as it arrives I'm happy. Can run multiple programs seamlessly, even managed to run VS 2015 Community, whilst having multiple tabs on Chrome, doing a virus scan and playing music on Spotify with literally hardly any lag whilst jumping between them all.

One impressed customer here, Would recommend.
I still haven't received mine. They keep changing the dispatch date. Placed order a month ago.

Edit (after moaning to self about useless HUKD app with android 7 and editing comments never working which it only decides to tell you after you have typed lots of sentences on a mobile ) Without skinning a device the only devices that run true Android TV are the Nexus Player (now unsupported), MI Box which is only released in US and getting bad reviews to the point they going back to review again once a patch is released for the buggy OS and the Nvidia Shield. Unsure about the Wetek Products only starting to look at them since a fellow HUKD poster said about them as before I has dismissed as being more for the iptv/sat market. 2nd Gen FTV stick also has a new GUI and the update should then roll out to the older devices.



​tried going through that Kodi website but there's so much in it to go through !!! there needs to be more Kodi box discussion on hotukdeals but I guess it's hard with all the suppliers being a little bit dodgy... so can you get a qbox with nothing on it at all which would be safer ??

It will run basic games, as to how well is a different matter.

Its a misconception Minecraft is a simple game. Yes it its basic form it is quite minimal and can be run single player on lower spec machines, but the majority of people play modded Minecraft, and this is an entirely different beast.

Wait till your playing Project Ozone 2, FTB: Infinity, or SkyFactory 2.5. Or connected Mutliplayer do a dedicated modded server... You will need far more than an Atom with 2GB ram for an immersive experience.

These suppliers will say anything to get people to buy them.

A couple of things may help to set this apart from many other Z8300 boxes.

Gigabit Lan and support for 128Gb SD cards, where others can only really support 64Gb

I have 512gb you peasant. And many leather bound books.
As if people buying this are worried about the hdmi 2 - how did we manage to watch tv on a crt ?
Surely if you want stability you just buy a cheap S805/S905-based device and run OpenElec (Linux) on it?

Running something like this as an appliance is far more reliable than any general purpose OS like Android or Windows.
