Pros:
Really compact form factor, plugs right into any HDMI enabled TV or monitor. Android 4.1.1, and with the easy installable firmware update from the rikomagic site, you get root access as well. Plays 1080p video without a hitch, and the default player also supports subtitles. Access to Google Play works and enables you to install any Android app. Works great with Netflix, but Netflix has no way to adjust the tiny subtitle size.
Cons:
Does not come with a power supply, you must buy a USB power supply that outputs at least 1A. The microSD card must be pushed into the slot with a sharp object, you cannot push it in with your fingers (unless you have long fingernails). Expensive device.
Other:
Be sure to get some kind of air mouse (gyro mouse) to control it.
Bottomline:
Excellent device, if you want to upgrade your tv to a media center, this is the device to get.
