very clean interfaceLooks amazing so far, i am only interested in xbmc and no games or other crap that comes with the gbox or the ouya. Linux UI is so smooth and fast compared to my jailbroken atv2. Very nice packaging, shipping was very fast and the box is very sleek and nice looking. My favorite is that it supports air mirroring and I can use my iPad to control it. The only thing that will hold this box back now is if support for it decreases, but with future upgrades it should destroy gbox and other boxes there is no comparison it works flawlessly through custom linux xbmc.
The ultimate media center!!!The Little Black Box V1.1 Today I received my little black box V 1.1 and all I can say is wow I will do a video and leave links to follow .The box is super quick and has a great support team on the tlbb forum I'm currently running 1 .7 beta version on witch you can't get on the forum....
My most favorite gadget at homeI have to say, this has to be my most favorite gadget I have in my home. Seamless movies, TV shows at my finger tips and is insanely quick. Well done team!
Great machine (after updates) updated reviewHi I am updating this review to five stars this is due to my experience with the little black box after a month ( it has had three factory firmware updates ) that have iron out most of the issues or bugs, so they are very proactive as a company impressed they are more active than I am . Also to be honest I have been working the little box hard it is on most days for a long time (due to nephew home from school) and me watching loads of sport ( do not get one if you wish to stay fit and slim you will spend a lot of time on your couch). Also there website and forum is great you send a email and you get a reply same day also you can get help though email chat instantly (like Amazon) also they will phone you from the US to talk you though things if needed , So with all the above and top performance from this little black marvel. I recommend this as a top TV box one of the best if not the best , very very happy Also if you are new to xbmc they have included all the maine or most popular add ons in there last update and a quick set up guide the guide is only for the US,UK and the Netherlands. but it makes life a lot easier. So after you have it all set up this little box of pleasure will become your new best friend ,just get the beer in because you will not be moving from your couch for the weekend. First of all I would just like to start with the good points ,there are a lot ,compared to the odd issue, The little box is well made ,nice to see plenty off vents on it for the chip set to stay cool and over all it looks good, The remote is the best one that comes with any smart tv box well made nice lay out and with a qwerty keyboard on the back that works well. Now to how the box functions (please note this review is after 2 updates but the new boxes should have the latest firmware installed when purchased). The box was very easy to set up quick start menu included a doddle, you have two choices of xbmc menu default ,or LBB ,I have been using xbmc default as used to it . It comes pre loaded with loads of plug ins (channels) and yes most if not all seem to work please note you can delete ,remove or add new plugins when needed .it also comes with music and program plugins as well so if you know nothing about xbmc you are up and running once on the internet ,ice films ,channel 1 , mash up ,sportsaholic all on there and others ,no need for fusion but if you want you can install from xbmc hub maintenance if you wish. It is great at playing live streams at HD 720p and 1080p it is also very good at 1080p content on sites like ice films and mash up buffing very rarely .I do not have fibre optic broadband or a super fast service ,the best player so far I have used for performance in picture and sound (and I have used a few). So on the whole very good and happy. Also the service from there distribution was excellent and the service from the company direct from there website and forum has been very good they offer a email chat for questions and problems and they will even phone you direct to talk you through issues (even if you do not live in the US). A lot off company's could learn from that also the first batch of machines where sent out with unmapped controllers so they put up there hands said sorry admitted they made a mistake but in under 10 days update sent to correct mistake, Now to my reasons for not giving it 5 stars There is only 1 yes 1 USB input and no card reader this machine like some of its rivals should have a card reader and at least 3 usb inputs like many of its rivals and the big pink triangle on the box is a sticker ,this should be painted or printed on ,it just looks cheap. Conclusion If you want one of the best machines for xbmc with ease of use and set up and a great picture with good sound (great for xbmc virgin) with the knowledge that the company will do there best to help you with there product ,this is the one for you.
