Initially the unit is difficult to manage with the supplied remote, but once you get use to the niggles it is a good device. Has all the relevant apps you require and has decent support. Mainly use it for streaming content and DStv Now.
Mouse pointer is horrible. Love the fact that it has a volume button on the remote. Setup was very easy and was ready to use in minutes.
Sleek looking unit too.
All things considered - 4 stars from me.

I'm incredibly disappointed in this product. It simply does not live up to expectations. While I have to give credit for the build quality of the Mediabox, there are two massive flaws that fail this product miserably and caused me endless frustration to the point where I returned it for a refund.
1 - the "air mouse" remote control pointer. What a disaster. Not only is the pointer sluggish on the screen but it never goes where you point it. The worst part is that the remote buttons don't work on the majority of the apps so you keep finding yourself flipping from air pointer mode to manual mode hoping something will work. It took me almost 10 minutes of struggling to sign into Netflix because of the clumsy combination of the on screen keyboard and the remote that simply does what it pleases. For this single reason I returned my product for a refund. I have no idea how Mediabox can proudly market a product that is so broken.
2 - the user interface is not customisable and because this is a mobile version of Android running on the Mediabox, the user interface is more suited to touch screen than a mouse or pointer, if you can ever get the pointer to work. Navigating the Mediabox and using the apps is an exercise in futility. Frustrating doesn't even come close.
The Mediabox showed promise but it's far from even being mediocre. Do not waste your money on this product.

Works great for Netflix, Dstv Now, Showman, Amazon and Kodi plugins. Does what is says on the box. I would recommend purchasing a wireless keyboard/touchpad combo as the wireless pointer will test your patience

Does what it says it does. Streaming quality is good and the optical cable for sound is also good.
Much better than streaming through a laptop. No more Vertical tearing.

Great little digital media player, comes pre-loaded with all the necessary apps and is very easy to use.
Bluetooth airmouse is not perfect, but it works and keeps things interesting.
Proudly South African with this little gem.

I wanted to support a South Aftican product, so I bought this instead of an Apple Tv. The apple TV would have been better. BUT this is a great product, it works. The DSTV app is crap but it is not their fault. Also the air mouse work well - once you've figured out its foibles. I bought an RII Bluetooth keyboard, but , Im hardly using it.
Overall Im happy, and given the choice I buy it again.

Absolute rubbish, stay away! Already own an Apple TV 4 for use in the bedroom and it is fantastic. Bought the Mediabox for the lounge, to save some money over the Apple as the specs looked good. Terrible to setup, horrible remote and even worse interface. Sent it back the next day and bought another Apple TV. Will happily pay twice the price, the Apple is just in another league.

did not have a lot of time with this product, but its playing DSTV now and that is what I wanted. Might recommend a faster internet line than 2mg
Lawrence, South Africa. 7 June 2017
nice product but the DSTV server is too slow - any decent movie or sport and DSTV buffers. You tube and others are perfect and have no issues just DSTV is poor. so if you getting just for DSTV like i did you may be disappointed

Its ok for viewing Showmax, Netflix etc.
But even with a high speed internet connection the audio lags on Showmax and Netflix.
The mouse pointer is a frustration of note! The remote's functionality is impractical.
As far as the interface is concerned I can only explain it as, working on a beast of a computer loaded with Windows xp. It feels like the software is outdated and laggy. (Even after the updates)
This product is just ok...nothing more.
