We need a certified TV box with a half decent SoC like the Amlogic S922x

Have the Ematic myself and not nearly using it to what it can really do

That said, I'd consider the following must-haves:
Ethernet port
SD Slot (Kodi quickly filled the 8GB even though the media itself stays on an external HDD, don't want to format and lock the HDD exclusively to the TV box)
Bluetooth (Though all of them have it)
Extra USB ports are nice, but not required with a hub

Love my Mecool KM9 Pro, no complaints, and everything just works (touch wood)

Have the Ematic and I am happy (never tested any other though)
Sound and image performance is fantastic in my home setup. (1080p and Dolby Digital plus on Netflix)

Until Netflix changes a line of code and boom, no more Netflix.

I had a LIT box which I gave to a friend when I bought my smart TV. Went and bought a Ematic from Makro for my mother today, these cheap Android boxes are horrible. The price is also R1499 and not R1249

Ematic 4K Android TV Box for the win - even my young kids can navigate it with so much ease - it is just superb!

They just need to work on the remote control - the quality seems kinda mediocre and the text is starting to fade. Other than that, I truly love it - amazing how they can fit such a powerhouse in such a small little device. DSTV Now and Netflix are my things, love Youtube Premium as well on it
