Course he'll still be able to use it without the keyboard. Just be harder.

Contact the courier and get them to replace the damaged items due to their stupidity.

We can only talk about free to air stuff on here, the other thread got closed down for a similar reason * people asking about certain sites and links.
best look to google or pm someone.

Ok, so Amazon have arranged DPD to collect this for a return this evening.

Had to organise (and buy) a new replacement, until refund process is complete.

Was considering buying this, would it be good value at that price? No plans for dodgy streaming or anything. Would mostly be used for Netflix,playing media from my NAS, and hopefully casting my phone/tablet screen. I am currently using an Android Mini PC, but can be a bit sluggish and I dont think it will cast the screen

Better value on Amazon or eBay, with delivery adding .€10 to that price in your link.

I have one of those M8 boxes that I no longer use if you want it - €50 delivered to you? You will need an air mouse as well though or if you have a wireless keyboard/mouse combo even better!!

That should be fast enough, think 2-3 minimum is recommended.

If you can't shift it drop me a pm, I'll gladly take if off your hands at that sort of price.

Thats enough for most apps you wont get HD and the live streaming may be a bit dicey but as a on demand box you have just about more than enough.
