    which take?: M8S Pro DDR4 3GB+16G S912 TV Box OR newest Amazon Fire TV 2017 Box for .......

    Hello hope you understand my broken english




    For Christmas I got these two devices, please help me by telling me which one to keep.

    I will only stream movies with kodi in 1080p, no hdr. Can connect via LAN.

    Besides streaming movies about Kodi, I want to play.

    i like the optic of the user interface of fire tv much better, i have no problem to buy a usbhub for a USB-STICK oder Gamepad for the fire tv...




    Please tell me how great the performance of the CPu, Graphiccard is against each other?

    Hi.
    I have both.
    For Kodi I use several Android Boxes.
    For Netflix/APV/DAZN I use FireTVBox/Stick.
    Best Solution for me!!

        same here, thats why i prever the amazon box. In the same place no problems with fire box, but the mecool box i can try in different positions it is not better, i also try it with lan, not better!

            did you inform yourself a lot about the mecool boxes? are they all so flawed in general?

                I own 3 Android Boxes(Mecool L/Tanix Mini/GT1 Standard)
                All of these have massive Problems with Wifi Connection. In my opinion without LAN not really a fun.

                The MEcool is okay. But i use it now only for Kodi. Maybe I try a other ROM from Magedanz or Superceleron.
                Since i bought the Amazon Boxes i´m really enjoy watching Netflix/AVP/DAZN)
                No Problems with WIFI.

                  Hi Lux, please inform me,
                  a) if you install a new firmware for Mecool M8S pro (3GB/16GB), with which you are satisfy, and
                  b) which model of Amazon Boxe(s) you have bought (or which one you can prefer)...
                  Regards,

                    The FireTV Stick and Box are the latest 2017 Releases.

                    The China Box hardware is cheaper junk. Alone the wireless not working properly or not at all says it all. There are no security patches. Updates are good times bad.
                    After 9 months my conclusion is: Stay away from the cheap ones.
                    There are still boxes out with Widevine L3. Who wants SD if HD goes? If the box costs 30 dollars on sale, what does it cost in the making
                    The Amazon boxes have few things missing (USB / LAN) but for pure streaming they are great. Had so far no abnormalities.
                    Unfortunately, the market for good boxes is rare. Nvidia Shield is too expensive. Apple is castrated.
                    Unfortunately, Nexus Player has been discontinued. There are no followers yet.
                    In any case, I will not grow any more China Box.

                      Its always good to have both types of Media players
                      One that is Legit as in can do all the L1 and HD 4k etc paid streaming services etc.
                      But a good, media player from China is also entertaining to have and you can have a bit of enjoyment as well
                      Just be careful what you buy, You do pay for what you get

                      Lots of reading to do, but go with boxes that do have support many to be found on FT
