Seem to be a few reviews on Amazon:


What are you intending to do with it?


I recently bought a ProBox2 EX+ which I'm pretty happy with (and it regularly gets good reviews on the internet).  The external WiFi aerial helps given that it's in a bit of a dead-spot.  Plays full HD off my NAS quite happily (DLNA or SMB).


Tried to game on it, but the supplied controller doesn't have the right key mappings by default and I haven't dug around to find out how to set it up properly (or just given in and bought the gaming controller or a full keyboard), but the frame rate seemed remarkably good (car racing game, I forget which one).


I haven't tried using it for the likes of Netflix, etc or other online TV/Movie content.


It's Android based, rather than Linux, so there's a large selection of Apps available, just not "open" like a classic Linux box.




Is anyone actually providing "IPTV" in NZ?  Do the OnDemand (TVNZ/MediaWorks) services count?


Just my 2c.

Yes you can, but facts are most of those iptv services are streaming and re-distributing "illegally " obtained content for financial gain.
