Could someone tell me if this is the same as the M8
http://www.adverts.ie/7785962
I have set up my first gen raspberry pi but it is very slow going. Things usually play fine once buffered but loading from screen to screen is crazy slow.
Also, best place in Ireland to buy fly/air remote?
Will a wireless mouse/ keyboard do the same job really??
Thanks in advance.

It is similar, although if you are getting that box, get the 2gb.

I'd also advise to not get a fully loaded one - he mentions a couple of free apps which you download. These inevitably break so it is much better to teach yourself what to do. That box should be 50e on Amazon or eBay, and the 2gb under 70

Id advise to the get the fully loaded box,The last thing a novice needs to be worrying about is the likes of mx player or adobe. id be afraid boxes that are not fully loaded may also not be rooted,my friend bought a box before and he couldnt even access the play store. I think loaded is the safer option just be ready to update the apps.

Getting it fully loaded is definitely worth the extra few quid.

It's not as hard as you think to put the stuff you need on it.Sites like this https://seo-michael.co.uk/ give step by step guides that even a complete novice can follow.
Another plus is the fact that if something goes wrong you'll know how to fix it yourself-some sellers charge a fee for reprogramming boxes.

A1 mate. I've now bought three in total. One for my dad, one for my man cave, and just got another today for the brother in law.

Best purchase I have made in quite some time.

Hello All,

I planning to get Android box but don't have much knowledge about these yet.

What's the latest box these days? Is it M8? What else do I need to check before getting a box please?

A friend is looking at this, not android but Linux with XBMC.

Are there better options?
