Pros:
The best AndroidTV 16 GB capacity, others like MK-808 are 8GB (even less available when the OS is installed). Optical Out Lots of USB slots, if you buy others you'll have to add usb hubs and looks really bad. Looks really good on my living room, like an AppleTV Nice support from the manufacturer. They've uploaded the firmware twice in one month. Powerful 1080p playback.
Cons:
The OTG slot is too short and you'll have to peel your cable. No 5.1 output, but it seems an Android issue. Non EU power plug.
Other:
You'll love to turn your TV on a Smart TV.
Bottomline:
It's a pity the 5.1 sound issue... If it's supposed to be a MediaCenter replacement they'll have to support it soon. I hope is not a hardware thing.
