I know this is for the T8, which I now have, but firstly:-
I bought an MX2 a year ago, as an ex-pat, and was very pleased with the unit – it took me a while to get used to XBMC (windows user for 25 years), but using droidsticks YouTube videos slowly got the hang of things. After a month, I had an audio problem, sent the unit back, and received a new unit! 10 months later, I inadvertently screwed things up by upgrading XBMC incorrectly. After nearly a year of ownership, support came in remotely to my unit, and put things right. This is top notch customer support, and the reason why I mention it first.
Putting the MX2 in a bedroom, I invested in the T8 – all the hype made me. It’s a very good box, and so much faster. Living in Spain, with a crappy 3meg connection, it is still a godsend for British TV. For me, I have to pause to allow buffering, but still have access to sports, movies etc. If you have good broadband, then I’m jealous – but I can still make it work.
Sorry to harp on a bit, but any box from Droidsticks is probably very good – the difference is their customer support, coupled with their unique Wizard to keep things up to date – something I couldn’t do if they didn’t – no intiendo.
