Oops, I mean, how good is the ematic TV box?
Does it work as it should?
I am concerned about the 100mbps network connection.

Assuming it's the same as my dad's LIT box from Telkom, which it looks like, then it's really awesome. I installed VLC on it for him, and using that it can play anything on a flash drive. Very nice apps for Netflix, YouTube and ShowMax preinstalled as well.

Thank you, better than an Apple TV?

My step-dad has an Apple TV. I absolutely hate that f**king thing. I rate basically everything above it. The touch controller is utterly useless and infuriating, it can't read flash drives, loading foreign apps for use with smart DNS services is such a chore etc.

Even without anything to compare it to, the LIT box is just pleasant to use and does everything.

Decent device, although you run out of space very quickly, need to get SD card to add more space.

Boot times are decent, no issues connecting to my la or Wifi, 4K streams fine over Wifi from Plex server using MrMC.
Remote is a bit clicky but I'm used to Apple TV 4 remote which is silent.

Exactly what I thought but didn't want to say unless I misled. He's still around so wonder what made him stop, unless he just got bored with it.

Thanks for solving the puzzle, it was niggling me.
The deals articles always used to come out on Friday afternoon...

I think when they switched it to mornings, people stopped posting it. Although it seems that it is now making a comeback :)
