Pros: 100% NONE
Cons: Where should I start.
NOT designed for Windows 10. This was originally for Windows 8 AND I paid $40.
It took a lot of complaining to the someone from customer service over a month just to get drivers.
Windows 10 takes up most of the 16 gig space because there is NO small version of Windows 10.
Do NOT try to upgrade because there is not enough space, you will have to reinstall overtop of.
The SD Card does not come online until after it's booted and is recognized as a separate drive so your out of luck when it comes to installing more than a couple of apps.
The screen is made of plastic and scratches and hope that the right drivers is in their package or the touch does not work, I got my driver from another user that figured it out and NOT their customer service.
Speaking of, don't expect customer support.
This is nothing but the cheapo of the cheapest coming out of Mexico product.
Don't even get me started on the Excursion XB. If your dumb enough to buy that garbage then your dumb enough to lose the money.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend this to my mother-in-law.
The screen is too small to be of use as a windows product so your only stuck with apps riddled with advertisements.
I eventually used mine as a controller for my Kodi setup.
Any other use would be a paperweight or give it to someone you hate.
Pros: Android OS that you can use for LIMITED functionality.
Yes you can access the Play Store and Yes it has Flash and Yes it can play most things.
The DEVIL is in the Details.
This is the difference between buying a Samsung S5 or a Blue whatever. You get what you pay for.
It DOES things but not very well and that's what you get for a cheap Chinese knockoff.
It will have fans that don't know any better but it still has limitations.
Cons: The first time I played anything through Kodi it messed up my TV screen then froze the box until I unplugged it. Still trying to get the network to function.
Limited settings on what turned out to be a custom version of Android 5.1.
Have not found any settings to update the OS.
No sound adjustments for irritating pop sound every time I click on something. I don't have to have feedback that I am launching a program. I'm not blind that last time I looked.
Limited settings for other things and I have not found evidence of root or the ability to do it.
Of course the Bright House App will not work because of the HDMI but that is Bright Houses moronic fault in an attempt to what? Stop piracy...Great job because it's worked so far. This DRM garbage only hurts legitimate consumers.
So if your buying this as a set top replacement your out of luck to use Quote "UnAltered" versions of Bright House or other similar apps.
Other Thoughts: I have no intention to recommend this device until the makers do some kind of research with XDA group members or some focus group on what consumers want.
A set top box with root access and the ability to access shared folders on their network to stream music and video for starters.
Also stop limiting functionality. If it's a memory issue then go back to the store because memory is cheap these days.
I can rant all day but nothings going to change.
I keep buying these devices and they remain just as cra!ppy.
As a final thought, go on YouTube and watch a review of whatever it is your buying. Let the other sucker pay for it.
I'm out $70 something bucks and had to wait 3 weeks to be suckered.
This review is from: Seagate STBD6000100 6TB 128MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Retail Kit
Pros: High Capacity drive that performs as expected.
Not a lot of heat and quiet.
Cons: Overpriced compared to 4 TB drives.
Price should go down the more you buy.
Technology is to new to guarantee reliability because it is based off writing to the same space twice after copying original data. Also makes writes slower.
Other Thoughts: You can buy 3 4 TB drives for around $123 dollars less depending on what day it is. This is no sale even with a code.
SSD's are coming down in price, take up less space, use less energy and are incredible fast so Seagate and others have to make higher capacity drives using a technology that slows down the write process and uses have the space already written to.
Unless you are in dire need of space then I would wait for a PROPER sale, shop around or till the price drops sharply.
Price per TB seems high when you want a 1TB, 2TB and 3TB then you have a reasonable 4TB then have to pay extra for a 6TB as if they are giving you a deal.
CPU's, Hard Drives and Memory are actually commodities and should go up and down based on market.
NEWEGG is not a store front where they have to pay for all the extras yet price as if they were Tiger Direct.
Believe me, they are still making money despite free shipping and handling.
