Pros: Feature rich, lots of included apps, straightforward setup
Cons: Wireless connectivity is awful. (I'm in the WiFi business...and this is VERY unreliable as far as clients go.)

There are directions online for fixing it yourself but even that doesn't overcome the units inconsistency there. Menus are slow and the home screen isn't editable.

Avoid this unit, the promise doesn't justify the frustration.

I purchased this device to purchase and play Google Play Movies. It is an Android device so should be no problem, right? Wrong.

First, the device was no issue to set up. While others say they had issues with various aspects, I had none. The device was setup and working, on Wi-Fi, in minutes. However, my first disappointment came with attempting to watch the Daily Show via an add-in from XBMC. The Daily Show is three segments. Using XBMC I would usually get only one segment, occasionally two, never three.

But the big disappointment came when my wife and I sat down to watch a movie. I can rent the movie, but after hitting play and several seconds that appear promising, I am presented with an error message suggesting I try again. I did. No luck. Now, I am aware that I can watch rented Google Play movies on YouTube under the heading "Purchases". But not on this device because YouTube mobile, app or browser, does not provide the "Purchases" link. Why not? Apparently it is a conspiracy to prevent users with Android devices from actually enjoying them.

I appreciate the inability to watch a Google Play movie on Android is really not the fault of the device manufacturer. However, as it was the only reason I purchased the device, and must now attempt to return it, I am greatly disappointed. I am also disappointed that Google seems so unwilling to fully support its own platform.

The box functions well. The custom android interface was well thought out and put together. XBMC itself on the screen looks really nice as the processor this ATV520 uses is ready for HD video. The video plays well and I really could not ask for more... then there's the remote.

The remote on my unit has to be pointed directly at the box. If it isnt then you are going to be in for a rough time. I found myself pleading out loud with the remote to please, please do as I command. I had to fire up the Yatse app on my phone so that I can control XBMC with it. Now I am happy but I cannot recommend the ATV520 while it arrives with a remote like that.

This is absolutely incredible. I was amazed the amount of viewing content once can receive by just taking a few minutes to tweak the product. A must for this is XBMC. Once installed you can basically disconnect your Cable TV. I am not 100% certainly of its legality, but it is awesome never-the-less
