Its hobbled as a streaming device, developer activity is non existent. I know I will get push back but just look at the forums and you will see what I mean. Crackle hasn't worked since it upgraded to Android 7 (or was it 6?). The Vudu app (sideloaded) crashes if you try to use it. This being the same Vudu apk that works fine on Fire TV, Nvidia Shield, Mii Box and other Android TV devices. Its utterly ridiculous that an Android TV device can't use the same apps as other similar devices can, but that's the fact.

Remote also unpairs itself a few times a month. I use mine to stream media from my pc and have to reboot every other day because videos start to stutter. Replacing it soon with a nvidia shield.

Still using mine. Works really with an Ethernet cable connect to it. Works well with Kodi install in it.

Mine's running great on v7.1.1. It wasn't doing so good with previous versions and I'm not going to tempt fate by updating it again.

It's a lot better than my fire stick. Plus, you can hook up an otg usb hub to use an air mouse which helps with touch screen apps like Mobdro.

Did anyone noticed the warning of health hazard associated with this?
I'm not sure how this streaming media console is related in exposing to harmful chemical but checked the link mentioned in the message:
"This product can expose you to chemicals including one or more listed chemicals which are known to the State of California to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information, go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov"

I was planning on more than a couple hours with my luck. =)

Can you explain what you use it for? I assume you have Kodi, but any other additional things I can add to it? I have yet to do my research.

According to California everything on the planet causes cancer.
