I got this because it got XBMC supported but turns out, the thing was not reliable. Failed on me where it would freeze than slow bufferings. Very unreliable that I had to give up and return it back to store.
The XIOS is a great media box, and the support for the unit is excellent. I am using the latest Android build (May 7), and it was so easy to flash the update it was almost comical - and this from someone who is definitely NOT a techie.
This little device is cute. It plays videos, and plugins allow it to play internet radio - sometimes. More often than not, I have to reboot it 2-3 times before it will play a video without choppiness or loud zapping noises in the audio. The Android upgrade had it work great for almost 3 hours, then it got too choppy to watch. Nothing worked at restoring it until I totally wiped the device and started over. Then it worked fine again... for another 2-3 hours. This time, even wiping it didn't improve the performance. Switched to the Linux XBMC version and now it only gets choppy when it is downloading an update for one of the plugins or the dog sneezes or there is a dirty dish in the sink. It still generally ignores any button presses on the remote control and to even turn it on, I usually have to unplug it and plug it back in. Using any skin other than the horrible ugly default makes it reboot often but randomly. The remote app that's available for android phones works great but won't turn it on.
This is a fantastic TOY for somebody who enjoys being frustrated. If you're looking for a reliable media player, get something else.
THis is a great product and a good value product IF you are prepared to put some work in. The forums are great for helping fix issues and for getting XBMC going. Out of the box this product is bested by several other players but flashing it to XBMC makes it great. You will need a 3rd party remote and a SD card so consider that before you purchase but still at this price a great media player.
Both the device and associated remote control(s) are made of extremely lightweight flimsy plastic. Navigating the Android UI took a combination of the included remote and the horribly frustrating gesture-driven Sense wireless remote that I purchased with it. Make no mistake: this runs Android, not Google TV. Android is a joy to use on a touchscreen, but using a remote control? Definitely not. Remote support in the native apps is lacklustre, and predictably nonexistent in apps purchased from the Play Store.
Do not buy this device. The WD Live is a much better device. All I have done is fight with this media streamer since I bought it. It is now in the garbage. The apps that you download are not made for the device so they rarely work. The netflix app was also useless on this device.
This device works great. It has played everything I've thrown at it. People complaining must not understand or aren't willing to update firmware or something. Sure, this thing isn't for the completely non-techie, but most of us should be able to manage just fine.
