2 out of 5 eggsmeh

Pros: It is OK, neat to have an Android OS on the TV. XBMC actually works on it and a few games play alright. Has a native Linux version OS but doesn't do much yet.

Cons: Slow, Netflix barely works half the time (their support forums suggests an APK version rather than the Google Play downloaded version).

Other Thoughts: Go for a Chromecast or a higher end media streaming device over this.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's good for XMBC Linux, but no Netflix, and remote is bad

Pros: - Flashing different OS (XBMC Linux) or even Android is extremely easy.

XMBC Linux is stable and fairly easy to use.

Cons: - Need to load firmware image to microSD card to flash anything for M3 model.

- Remote is very annoying to use and made of cheap plastic.

- Android is a PITA to use with the remote, and overall it's not as stable as XBMC Linux. But XMBC Linux has no support for Netflix. This is a deal-breaker for me.

Other Thoughts: I didn't realize there is an automatic 15% restocking fee for this product, even though I didn't remove any of the stickers and did not throw anything away. The only thing needed for restocking my item would've been to shrink-wrap the box. I ended up selling it on Kijiji instead because I didn't lose any money.

1 out of 5 eggsChild-like

Pros: A nice accessory to a Barney-themed playroom.

Cons: I own the previous incarnation of the Pivos Xios media player, and it has been an excellent product. I have been wanting to add a media player to another area of the house, to stream from my own network, but I just can't purchase this unit--it looks as if it should be on a child's playroom desk, next to their finger paints. I realize this is simply a matter of personal taste, but the aesthetics of this product is simply awful.

Sorry Pivos, but I will pass by this one.

2 out of 5 eggsPIVOS 2 EGGS / NEWEGG 1 EGGS

Pros: works well after you make all needed updates

Cons: before using you have to update this product, which will be complicated for some. the firmware is available on their site after following many links and you must have a memory card to flash the new firmware.

the included remote does not allow for full functionality

Other Thoughts: I order 4 different products only one was new the others where all in open packages and sold to me as new, shame on you newegg

1 out of 5 eggsBroken product

Pros: Good if it works

Cons: I already have a pios xios and it is working great. So I decided to buy a second one at this black Friday. When trying to insert an micros to the storage, my microsd just went inside the box and i have no way to get it out. I contacted newegg and they ask me to send them back the product with my own cost so I have decide to return this product and won't do business with newegg again.

3 out of 5 eggsClose, but not quite there if you are doing HD.

Pros: Cheap, low power, small profile. Has everything you need to run linux and XBMC with little work.

Cons: XBMC is too slow. Navigating the menus is frustrating and gets worse when movies are playing. Stutters on complex 1080p scenes. Advanced Harmony remote control requires hacking. Turning device on/off from remote not really possible.

Other Thoughts: I had high hopes for this little box to replace my aging HTPC. Unfortunately, the hardware just isn't there yet and it is with regret that I am returning it NewEgg. I will say that the box has a lot of good things going for it that can make it very appealing, especially as HTPC for a car of kids room. Reloading linux and XBMC was painless and I had the box up and running and serving movies in about 15 minutes. As others have said, the supplied remote is not very good, but that doesn't matter because the XIOS is in the Harmony database. I will say that not all the harmony functionality that I would like is in the remote and doing any kind of custom key mapping to specific XBMC functions is a real pain and requires a good amount of hacking. To me the deal breaker is that navigating the XBMC menu's is painfully slow and frustrating with the remote, and even with the harmony remote. The lag gets even worse when you are playing a movie. Additionally when complex 1080p scenes are displayed, the picture and audio cut out. Fan Art is slow to load, and scraping seems to take significantly longer with this box than it reasonably should. Eliminating a need for a remote completely and using something like XBMC commander via IOS/android is probably your best bet. I was bummed to find out that you cannot turn the device off with the remote like you can with ATV, and once the device goes to the shutdown screen, the only way I have found to turn it back on was by unplugging the power and turning it back on. Now I only played with this box for a few days before returning, so there could be fixes for these issues that I am overlooking. However I still would not recommend this for people who want a seamless and fully featured box to run their XBMC home theater PC....although it probably isn't fair to expect a box that costs $100 to do that.
