I do not own this box now and can answer only a few of your questions. Please note that though the box looks the same outside, the pre-installed apps might be different. This depends on the request of your reseller to the manufacturer.

1. Some sellers state the box supports RM/RMVB, MPEG, MKV, AVI, FLV, VP8 video playback. No mention about other formats. Other sellers claim it supports more formats including AVI, FLV, 3GP, 3GPP, MOV, MP4, DAT, MPEG, MPE, MPG, M2V, ISO, VOB, MP4, 3G2, MKV, TS, M2TS, M3TS, M4TS, M5TS, MTS, M4V, FLV, FLC.

I've not tried every format you listed above, only know that mpeg, mkv, 3gp, 3gpp, mp4 are working. Some format, e.g. avi, is just a container generic name which format inside could be any.

I have Full HD videos from my Sony and Canon Videocams with M2TS, MTS and other formats and am wondering if you have tried playing these files on the box.

2. Does the box come loaded with the Apps and Gmarket like that shown in the seller's website?
Mine preloaded with Youtube, Map, Flash, etc. However, I don't like the idea of pre-installed apps because you may not to be able to upgrade such apps due to them residing in the system folder (unless you can root your box). Those apps could be downloaded and installed from the included Android Market.

The Android Market in my G-Box is of rather old version (no green sidebar panel), but no problem finding most apps I want.

Many thanks for your help. I'm new to Android and all this talk about root etc is kinda exciting for me.

p.s. you got yours from ********** H-ZONE TECHNOLOGY CO LTD. Are they any good? Sorry, I can't remember the seller. Don't expect they can be of any help when there is any problem because some sellers don't even know their product that well.
The price in Singapore is quite high, in exchange of local support and warranty. Buying from Chinese online store, you have to be prepared for poor support, in exchange of a much cheaper price.
