Well sstavross, I'm really happy with my box now. With this price ($103.- shipped), I got more than what I would have expected. Play most Android apps, flash support (working now with 10.2 only), output fullhd videos.
I saw the popular Flexiview FV-1 model can't output real FullHD movie, and with only 2GB internal flash. I rather keep mine.
Can't root my box is not a big deal
I believe your box is also performing well as mine. New firmware doesn't really improve much as long as it is on Froyo/Gingerbread.
I also have Logitech Revue ordered from Amazon (I pay $162 including shipping from US to Thailand + import tax). With current Revue firmware, our Android box can do much more than Revue. I bought it hoping to have it updated with official Honeycomb firmware in the near future. Have to admit that Revue video output quality is clearer and crisp; its included wireless keyboard/touchpad is really excellent.
