This is the second one I bought. With the first one I didn't know where to begin programming XBMC but this one came fully programmed with everything. All I had to do was plug it in and start enjoying it right away. There are others selling these out there but none of them are programmed like this. They basically sell you the box and you will get home not knowing where to start.

THIS TRUELY WAS PLUG IN AND PLAY !!! DEFINITELY WORTH THE MONEY !!!

We dropped our Bell TV after giving this a try. You need patience because sometimes you need to find the right stream, but it's totally worth the savings. This gives us everything we want for both the kids and the parents.

Basically this is for people that don't mind messing around with technology. If you want something you can just turn on and use simply and without any messing about then you should just keep or upgrade your cable package. If you are prepared to put in a bit of time learning XBMC and Android OS then you may want to consider this box.

In my case I've been able to get it to do what I want and i'm happy with it. It has taken me a bit of time to learn about XBMC and to get it loaded up with what I want. There are a lot of videos on youtube that explain things but if you have a friend that knows about it and can show you the ropes all the better.

I'm about a month in now the device is still working fine physically so that's good. What you should know though is that not everything you click on or try to run will work, sometimes you try to play something and get kicked out of XBMC, sometimes you click on a link and it hangs, sometimes you have to reboot the box and start over. This goes with the territory of an aggregator device, the internet is far too complex for everything to work completely seamlessly, there are going to be bugs and annoyances - if you can live with these sorts of things then its worth every penny, if you cant put up with those sorts of things then you shouldn't buy this.

Me? I love it.

This unit worked right out of the box. I have enhanced it a bit by using YouTube videos and adding Mashup and Navi-x. I am extremely satisfied and have and will recommend it to friends!!!

I test drove XBMC on my home computer before committed to buying the G box. It worked great on the PC and loved the access to all the content. Took a while to figure out how to configure XBMC. Watching a couple of Youtube videos will fix you up. Once you learn to find and load the repositories, it's awesome!
The G box is quite buggy so expect it to crash often but overall it's great as a stand alone box. You will need a solid, fast internet connection especially when streaming HD. Will work better using Ethernet rather than wireless. I can't get the configuration settings to save as some of them are reset every time I turn the box on. The remote works great. The manual is poorly written and cheaply printed so it's pretty much useless. Would be much better if I could get the configuration settings to stick.
I think I'll buy a second box for my other TV - certainly beats paying for cable or Sat

Works well. Only complaint is the remote uses 2 AAA's a week. I was able to configure XBMC with no problems. Most people who write negative reviews do not know what they are doing. Fusion, mash-up, plus thers all work great.

Buy it only if you are into flashing firmwares, switching between Android and Linux, and testing beta builds. If you want an easy solution. If you want an easy solution, get a proprietary media player or The Little Black Box. Btw, don't even think of using the version of Android provided with the device. It is slow, buggy and dysfunctional, and it does not provide real 1080p output, neither AirPlay. The device should necessarily be flashed with one of the Linux firmwares (well, OS) available for free. Only some of the Linux distros support 1080p playback and AirPlay.
