Great box for the money,
This review is from: G-Box Midnight Android 4 / Linux XBMC Streaming Mini HTPC TV Box Player (Electronics)I have it connected to my 60" running 1080i videos from my thumb drive. The video is smooth and no freezes. The response time is pretty quick, and all the apps I have installed so far work great. Had some issues with the latest versions of Netflix and Hulu+, but I thinks the apps have not been updated for the latest version of Android. I installed the older versions and they work fine. This will be resolved soon. Had the same issue when I bought my phone which had the latest Android, and the apps caught up within a month.
This is one of the better boxes out there in this price range. Stay away from those no-brand direct-from-china boxes.

There's a lot of games that work on it, but a lot of them aren't easy to play because it's not touchscreen. XBMC works very good and is under a lot of development. This box is great for videos and web browsing and especially for tinkering. visit their website and you can see it has a massive community following.

I assume it plays media on local usb drive. But does it play media on network storage device? What types of media (video/audio/picture formats) does it support? I have been searching for a media player that can play my media on my NAS. I've found some well-reviewed media players on the market, but most of them doesn't come with android which I would like to have. How good is this as opposed to the other dedicated media players such as Klink, in terms of playing media? Thanks.
