    That is awesome, with a Bluetooth VOICE remote included, for that price!! Videostrong keeps raising the bar for the other manufactures to follow.

            Well this is Kinda Fun, Different, using the full ATV experience to set things up from start
            First we detect the BT Remote Hold - and OK as per screen instructions....and the remote is detected after a bit of a scan no hair pulling here.

            Setup up Google account Via Phone or tablet, why not
            Log into google via Tablet and find my device being the 912 pro L, few seconds done.




            Let's set up account and software (this is all done on tablet) ok do it what could go wrong.
            What wifi do you want the Pro L to use, picked one...all good.
            A few do you agree to this and that here and there (google stuff)


            Would you like to try the Android Remote on your table, sure gone this far not going to stop now.
            Loads shows a pairing code etc and done.



            Well that was a bit different and seems to work without any major hiccups or problems just read the screen.

            To the playstore now to do some updates load some testers and see what this has to offer in the way of performance.
            Haa Root explorer, Via Es file explorer Pro, being ATV no Upper or Lower Bars
            Aptoide ATV installed found most apps required for testing etc
            Good startup excellent, easy to follow and all seems to be working well with this Factory Rom from Mecool.

              After all the set up its all pretty good
              Using Tablet with Android TV Remote, bit fun
              Blue Tooth remotes works well and Picks up speech easy more fun.

              As mentioned a Mixture Of Aptoide TV and Playstore to get the Apps you need no Big deal
              Wifi Working well, this is just a well good working unit
              Temps a bit high when Pushed as you will see small fan is your friend if you find it a bother.
              idle in the 60~70 no fan with fan down to 37c

              Lets have a look around and some test..

              Typical Android TV Rom


              App Draw


              System Info




              WiFi Looking Pretty Good



              DRM Info L1


              Ram and Storage Truth



              CPU-Z




              Antutu



              Bit warm:
              Testing show's it being pushed did not fail just hot, happens with these test


              Geekbench CPU... More Info >
              http://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/7223779


              Geekbench Computer


              A1 SD Bench









              Youtube 4k


              Netflix 1080p as seen


              Has Root, Dev mode, and looking pretty good
              Finally a factory Rom from Mecool that has the the Goods.

              Hope others catch on or they are just not going to make it

              Normally not a fan of the ATV style rom this one has got my interest.
              Guess cause it works out of the box and does not need a lot further luv or attention. so far

              More fiddling and tinkering to come to see what else it can or can't do

              Remote works well with Voice commands piece of cake...

              Ask about the weather, decodes as you are speaking down bottom of screen


              Get an answer with Voice and Graphic. Fahrenheit at present to be sorted Just Ask for Centigrade and you get


              Temps seen below 60c a small fan was used Underneath, just an indication.

              Thanks Gearbest
              Also You can save $5 with Code: GBMCLB

                Nice initial review, thanks.

                If you don't see this during first boot do a Default Reset ...

                      Thanks, Trebor, but you are a day late with the instructions on pairing the remote to this box......... Hahaha....... Took me awhile to find the correct "key" combinations to get it to pair. As PX discovered, Geekbuying test these boxes prior to shipping them (which is good), so we do not get the initial screen that tells us how to pair it.

                      From what I heard it plays 4k at 30 frames no problem. 4k at 60 won't work.

                      but having voice plus Bluetooth and voice remote pretty sweet.
                      Many devices now mk902ii/Shield/Mk68 /Ugoos/neox5/minix5 (yes they still work lol) mk80 no it doesnt work lol.

                        Is this box any better than M8S PRO DDR4, aside from the voice remote?
                        Is it worth to move from my current PRO 3/16 DDR4 to this one ?
                        Is this OEM ATV firmware compatible with M8S PRO?

                          Depends on how you use these but probably no to all 3 questions.

                          Ah, Trebor, yes but, I suffer from addiction. I have one Pro, and three of the L's, one I broke, and the third one, had to have that remote. Did I NEED them??? Heck NO, Why did I get them, could not help myself. Hahaha, of course, it doesn't help when you GOAD into purchasing them...
