The $100 price tag might look attractive (especially since it comes with a controller) but you'll soon discover it's several years behind what more mainstream Android devices are capable of. Why? It's still running Android 4.4 Kit Kat, a version of Android that came out nearly three years ago. A lot has changed on Android since then, not the least of which is an entirely new television interface that many current apps are being written for. Those apps won't run on this box. The apps that do run will largely think they're running on a tablet and will feel clunky given your television likely lacks the touch interface those apps expect.
Just in my initial testing I was unable to download Hulu and Netflix. In the near future many of the newer Android games won't run on the box either as they'll require a more recent version of the operating system to run.
The system lacked the four promised games preinstalled. It just had two of them. And Asphalt 8 was in French, not English. The four it claims to include are free anyhow on any Android device so you're not getting any kind of deal there. Emtec responded below to say Vine reviewers received a beta box that will be corrected in its final release.
Also dubious is their lack of specifications for the device. Their website lists it as having "16GB of RAM" and "1GB of flash memory." It should be reversed. And although it has a quad core processor it feels about as sluggish as some of the $40-$50 Android devices I've tested recently.
This one promises a lot and delivers nothing. You or the kid you're buying this for will be disappointed. Here's my advice: Spend a little more for the Amazon Fire TV with a game controller. Or if you really want a good Android gaming experience spend a little more for the Nvidia Shield TV which does all of the gaming this thing can do (and do it faster) as well as delivering all of the video services this one doesn't do.
