Opened the box connected to wifi/ not ethernet. Used the o t a updater for latest firmware and then connected to latest pre installed kodi 16. 1and if you no your way round kodi you will know how to install add ons and away you go. Then installed bbc i player. Web browser is lightening fast and installing apps is childs play with app store. Uhd movies stream effortlessly and after the update ethernet works a treat. Have ordered more as the 2gb of ram is what i needed.
Great for sports, films and tv. Bought as a replacement for my mx 2 box, which was getting a bit tired. This doesn’t come pre loaded with all add-ones but i followed instructions that i found on youtube. Just follow them to the letter or it won’t work. Sports, movies, tv all work well. Excellent picture and no freezing seen yet. New processor makes streaming very fast, and navigating the box is faster too. Better to connect via ethernet than wifi. Only slight disappointment was the response i had from the supplier when i needed help trying to load the sports devil addon.

Excellent product, however i had to wipe programme and re install.
One of the best i’ve had still going strong.
I wouldn’t recommend it to someone who isn’t competent at setting. You need to know what you are doing. I wouldn’t recommend it to someone who isn’t competent at setting up.

Definitely need a keypad remote which you have to buy separately. Still a bit hit and miss depending what do you want to use it for and i’ve had to re-install kodi two or three times.
Not made for the latest 4k – 60 fps hdmi 2. 0 tv’s. 4k don’t work as the g8 box only has hdmi 1. 4 and its should have hdmi 2. 0 which would have made this backwards compatible. I have tried this box on my samsung 4k tv ue65hu8500 which has the latest hdmi 2. 0 ports and also used a hdmi 2. 0 cable but the picture breaks up when setting to 4k output due to the old spec the hdmi 1. 4 port has built into the g8 box, this g8 box is not capable of outputing 4k iva hdmi unless you have a first gen 4k tv, and should have been fitted with a hdmi 2. 0 systems can transfer data at up to 18gbps, and 10. 4 can only do 8 bit colour at 24/30 fps where 2. 0 can do 12 bit colour at 60 fps,if your tv only does 24/30 fps in 4k with hdmi 1.
Had to update some of the apps but it runs very smoothly with no issues. It did have almost everything installed as standard. Needs a decent internet connection if you plan on streaming content but it does give you an option to download instead in some apps. I bought the wireless keyboard remote as well which makes using it a whole lot easier. Paid £62 as a lightning deal and seems decent value for the specs. Have not got a 4k tv so cannot comment on that aspect.
Work ok but constantly buffering. Work ok but constantly buffering. I tried ethernet over powerline – forget it – too slow. Over wifi it is faster but the main factor is your internet service provider. They seem to be able to detect traffic and throttle accordingly. I have, what appears to be an adequate internet package but appears to be buffering constantly.
Great for watching many programs first class.
The quality of this product is very good, after i bought it and use, there no problems, i believe it is very durable. I often re. Good quality for the price fast delivery. Great product at a modest price received product in timely fashion. Product is just as described in details. Works great, showed up on time. All around good experience with product and seller.
This media box has exceeded my expectations. I was used to xbmc having previously had a modded original xbox, so kodi was easy to set up. I am very happy with both hardware and the software loaded on this box.
Fantastic bit of kit well worth the money.
