I spoke about the KM1, KM9 and KM6 earlier. Yes they are Google certified.

Netflix ?

Look.

I'm not arguing with you.

I can just tell you that 90% of the population will opt for a Netflix approved box with lower specs, than a non-Netflix approved box with higher specs.

No problem, just debating.

Chromecast with Google TV.

Newer SoC etc. than the Mi, Ematic, and can't go wrong with it, will always just work. Pretty much like the Chromecast, just with an interface.

Which R1.2k PC are you thinking of?
What OS?
Also not taking into account extra power usage, extra peripherals, plus large surface area and to top it off, it's not 2010 anymore :).

Does it have a LAN port? Main reason I chose ematic.
Quite important issue for me if I had to go the Android/Google TV Box route, and start replacing Chromecasts :

That SD card slot on the Ematic, can it be configured to be available for app storage on Android 9, which is where I think the Ematic is?

Sorry man, I'm the wrong person to ask that. I just used it out the box. Only thing I had to do was create a google play store account so I could download kodi.

Went with the mediabox maverick. Being Google,netflix and Amazon certified plus having a lanport was important to me.

On the mibox, you must be carefull, very easy to make your sd card one for memory and lose your pic's.

As its practically the same as the lit box I'm going to say yes.

OK, so I am a Mecool fan. I forgot to Mention in my earlier post the Mecool KM2, the only Netflix certified, Mecool box currently available in South Africa.
