REJECT!!!, September 19, 2014
I ordered this via Amazon, but it shipped direct from Matricom.

When I started trying to use it, I was surprised to find that it shipped with a very old firmware. The firmware was so old that it couldn't do automatic upgrades. When I tried, it gave a cryptic error message. After some time on Matricom's web-site, I found out that the firmware that was installed on my unit was so old that it had to be manually updated.

I did the manual update and was surprised to find that XBMC had updated to 13.2, which is the latest version of XBMC. I found that strange because Matricom's web-site says that you should use their version of XBMC, which is older, and not the latest version.

The newer version seemed to work just fine, and so I went about setting up the unit. I tried watching several HD 1080i videos and found that they stuttered quite a bit on scenes that had quite a bit of motion. That was quite disappointing, as I use my XBMC mostly to watch off-air HDTV recordings. So, I sent it back...

Awsum product I recommend to anyone who loves streaming videos, movies and more.

Worked as advertised, September 19, 2014
Works as advertised, didn't give it 5 starts due to buffering at times even though my internet is 50mbps down stream.

Great device!!! Movies and TV on demand!!!, September 19, 2014
Great device, but NOT for a beginner. I am a 20 year IT professional, and this thing is not AT ALL intuitive!!! Be prepared to research how to install the apps you need and want!!!

Works fine

nice media box, September 18, 2014
I very reliable media box. I never had a problem with it.the only negative thing i could say is that you have to put addons on it, doesnt come with the addons i use....

A good product but best for techie types, September 18, 2014
The item works well but.............. first of all it arrived with a very outdated firmware and the OTA (Over the Air) update procedure did not work at all. I had to do a manual update using the toothpick method (not for newbies) The method for adding channels and manually getting XBMC installed after the firmware upgrade is not for non-tech types. That being said............. after the initial issues with getting the firmware up to speed, getting XBMC re-installed and getting a number of useful plugins installed. The box works like a champ. It allows me to use streaming TV from a number of channels and also stream from my 2 media servers in the house. It actually has 4 USB ports to add in media drives as well as an SD card port.

The latest firmware does tend to hang up the box when you pause a movie for to long but I assume that will be fixed in a future update.

If you enjoy tinkering and setting up something customized just for your tastes, then this is the box for you.
