      Let's look at what this one has to offer,
      We do Have Root, No Upper/Lower bars.

      UI clean look,


      System Info

      Ram and Storage Truth


      DRM


      CPU-Z



      Antutu is that 1080 display, Hmm means extra work on CPU = Heat


      Note temps while running this test..........recovery was quick between 70 ~ 95c

      Geekbench


      More Info - http://browser.geekbench.com/v4/cpu/4428888

      A1 SD, looking OK




      It's Fair, temps are the killer, can see why the better looking heatsinks.

      As mentioned RK-3328 better suited to 720 than 1080 in some units (pending on the Quality and Build with support)

      Also noted that temps would recover quickly when pushed and relaxed, would survive normal use, and watching videos its was 60c~70c +/-
      Ram Speed appears good, and Wifi and Ethernet ok for what it has.

      So better cooling would help, More vents and a fan, or 720 UI.
      More as I tinker.

      This has BT so a test with YT and speaker all good, easy connect

        Thanks mr. T for the preview.
        My little bit of experience says 70 c sounds very warm if not hot. I noticed my M8 S Pro initially was about the same, after a few hours test drive seem to calm down to 50-ish so no worries?
        Is it possible some Socs have a break in., running hot during this period?

        I thought the rk3328 was specifically made for TV boxes? But seems to show no special Magic?

        If I'm in the wrong place please let me know and I will go to that right place... But I have a few questions.

        Trying to work with gearbest on my box, thoroughly disappointed with the s912.
        Way too many bugs, crashes, freezing, power Downs, power ups, video scaling either under or over... Sometimes self-correcting, often continues until a power cycle....experience audio pop/ crackle also.

        I thought there post related to corrupt emmc, Etc. I cannot seem to find them, search is not helping. Do you recall any of these and could you point me there if so.
        I realize these are inexpensive boxes but I still expect them to perform much better.

        You commented more or less, you get what you pay for. I fully understand but am always a value Hunter.
        I certainly can't step into the over $200 range.
        Your suggestions on a powerful stable durable box please. Do I need to be looking at pippo, or Minix... Say like the u9? Others?

        I like to watch them, more than work on them.

        Appreciate your Insight, opinions and of course your time. Many thanks
        Kris....don't forget my boxes! Okay?

          All Boxes have issues, some are man made, user made and some are by design,
          I have no trouble with box you mention, you will find a use for it

          Minx is Good yes, but also has had its problems if you read their forum.

          Whatever you buy, will have its moments,

          Keep on reading and looking, Nagrace, Zoomtak, Wetek, Beelink,
          The truth is out there, yet to find it my self

            I belonged to the user made Club, honorary president don't you know.
            But I didn't even get my chance to get out my dull wrenches for this one.

            So you are not aware of post regarding faulty emmc on these units?
            Do any of those symptoms indicator cause to you?
            After half a dozen flashes, it seems somewhat better... That is not uncommon either?

            I gather the rk3399 is The Rock's flagship. Correct? And I suppose I could expect similar issues?
            Are the windows based streaming devices not as well suited as Android products.

            Just an FYI, I am a Relentless searcher, probably not the best researcher I need more RAM, and the discipline to take a lot more notes. Being in building and services, I regularly experience a non linear path, not too good with endless circles though.

              trebor I received this box from Gearbest last week and I've already messed it up

              Installed SuperSU from the Play Store - updated binary - now stuck in boot sequence. Had I found this forum sooner I would have seen that this is a big no-no.

              I'm used to rooting and flashing on mobile, but this is new territory for me.

              The only reason I bought this was to replace my Windows 10 laptop because I only used it to run Plex (very bulky option). I have a few questions which I hope the pros can assist with, in order of importance:
              1. Where can I find firmware for this box? [UPDATE] firmware available as of yesterday - sorted there
              2. What is the restore/flash process?
              3. How do I get SuperSU running with root?
              4. Are there custom ROMs for this box, and is it worth it?
              Once I've got the device running again could someone advise if there is a way to get get Plex Media Server running on the box? So far all I can see is a Kodi add-on, but it still only recognised my existing media server.

              Holding thumbs one of the senior members can help out!

              :/
