I bought 3 of these as Christmas gifts after I tested one for myself. I was able to play a 13GB mkv file off a windows share on my network without an issue (use ES File Explorer). Netflix works well, so does YouTube. MX Player indicates that it is using Hardware Decoding so performance is not a problem.

Some users reported wifi issues. Those have two solutions:

1. Get a USB to ethernet adapter from Amazon for $17. Search for: Android USB Ethernet. Make sure that ths adapter is for USB 2.0 for faster speed.

2. If you can't get an ethernet cable to your TV then you can likely fix it by opening the mk808 and removing the ground cable for the two wifi antennas. Search Google or YouTube for "mk808 finless ROM". Bob, the maker of the ROM made a video documenting the issue and how to fix it.

You should also upgrade to the Finless ROM v.1.5a or newer for a whole bunch of reasons such as having 2GB for application installation, root access, more Google Play store access, cleaned up some Chinese crap ware, etc.

Update 12/25/2012: I found that some of my .mkv videos are encoded with dts audio and that MX Player does not have the plugin to decode it anymore. You will need to search for the codec on forums and add it to MX player as a custom codec. Or you might find another video player altogether.

Enjoy

The MK808 is essentially an Android tablet without a screen (you use your TV or monitor as the screen). This is a great concept, as it allows you to stream media directly onto your TV screen.

The glaring issue with the MK808 is that it will frequently drop the wi-fi connection (every 10-20 minutes for me). This ruins streaming Netflix or Hulu, but streaming music works well enough even with the connection dropping. This is not just an issue with my own MK808, this is an issue that basically all of them have. Unless you put your wireless router right next to it, or use a USB-to-Ethernet dongle and run an Ethernet wire directly to the box, you WILL have the same issue.

The MK808 still works fine for playing movies off an external hard drive, running other Android apps, and general web browsing. The Rockchip RK3066 processor is fast enough to run Android relatively smoothly (not as fast an top-tier Android phone, but fast enough), and movies play fine, even in 1080p.

The software that comes with the stick apparently has a lot of issues, so I installed a custom rom from FreakTab (search Google for MK808 custom ROM and check the first link- just follow the instructions carefully to install). A custom Android ROM is basically like a new version of the Android operating system, made by someone other than the company that makes the device. The one from FreakTab fixes most issues, frees up some extra space, and makes things run a little faster. Unfortunately, the wi-fi issues is apparently a hardware problem, so that won't go away.

Even with the custom Rom, it will occasionally restart itself.

I gave a quick demo of it to a room full of technologists and everyone was amazed by the amount of power in such a small device. I used a Logitech wireless K350 keyboard/mouse with it and it worked flawlessly. Every game I loaded ran flawlessly and 1080p video ran smooth with MX Player app. The TV I was displaying on had a USB port that I was able to use to power the device for the demo which was very convenient. Wireless performed very well streaming 1080P video in XBMC.

The MK808 is fun fun fun. It is not the sort of thing I would recommend to a casual consumer, I think this product is really for Android geeks who like to tinker. If you know what you are doing or can figure it out, this thing has amazing potential as a mini HTPC, a retrogaming console, a Skype machine and so many other great uses. You'll want to get a custom ROM, I suggest you get one from Bob Finless, and kick him down a donation for the awesome work he does. It loses a star for being packaged as a finished product. It is a cool toy, but in the state it ships in, I could picture some guy like my stepfather just plugging it in, not figuring it out, and tossing in the garbage.

So far, both of the Android 4.1 MiniPCs we ordered have worked as advertised. They have been up and running for about two weeks - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Compared to the MK802 Android 4.0 Mini PCs we are phasing out, these appear to be well built and have a lot of ventilation holes to reduce overheating problems. I was able to set them up, configure them for our network, install the free versions of Startup Manager and Concerto signage, and place them into operation without any problems. We have had no WiFi problems, and no crashes, freezes or any other type of device-related problems. We are using these to replace the unstable crash/freeze prone MK802 Android 4.0 Mini PCs we purchased and installed last fall. During setup, I couldn't help but notice the stability and resiliency they showed as I made various configuration changes to the devices and to Concerto. They recovered their connections to the Concerto server by themselves after I rebooted the WiFi router; the old Android 4.0 devices we are replacing did not do that.
