always find it funny when they say like he does.. a mere 8gb , like its so little an amount.. yes i know it it by todays standard but when you started with cassette tape storage. then huge harddisks with only few hundred mb , memory in computers of 16 mb being huge... it always remains funny when gb are considered just a small amount

mANNNNN LINUS as if saying 'its a chromecast ultra but $10 cheaper' 'it has chromecast built in' wasnt misleading enough..... you had to have an actual chromecast running at the beginning to top it all off.... its a decent box but I was relying on this to replace my old chromecast that I use frequently with Google Home - not aware I was buying a glorified Android TV

If the box can stream 4K, why would 4K content sent via Chromecast Not be in 4K. I assume when you cast to the device, you are only sending it a web location.

You know what I hate? LTT is based in Surrey,BC, but you always make these "Deals" videos only for the US viewers, using their prices. Mi Box isn't even on the Walmart Canada website. I'm not asking you do an entire video just for the Canadian viewers, but add like 30secs mentioning whether or where we can get the deal as well. Heck, I'd settle for a sentence in the disclaimer. That being said, thank you for making good content.

Casting is broken on the mi box s. I could never get YouTube TV or Plex to cast. Also the Google Assistant never understood what I said in the first try. It's ok hardware, but the software lacks. Maybe it'll get fixed in an update, but it's not ready for primetime.

Hello. I am new in the TV Box branch. I am planning to buy one budget TV box for my parrents. They want a box that is moving very well, with a good firmware. Most of the times they will use it for watching full HD movies online and time to time for my brother and me to play. Also if is possible to Browse the internet via Chrome.It will be great as well if we could connect an airpad mouse and 2 gamepad conntrollers for games. It will be connected to a internet cable connection. Could you please recommend me one? Budget is max 70$. And could you please recommend a cheap/good controller and airpad mouse? And I have one question. Is it possible to watch Netflix full Hd with these TV boxes after the Netflix patch is installed? After watching your videos my mind is at Mecool M8S PRO L or Beelink GT1 Ultimate 3GB DDR4 + 32GB . Another question is: Is it possible to connect a 1,5TB external HDD to the TV box?How? Which one would you suggest or is the best for the price mentioned above? Thank you very much.

Had a gen 1 Chromecast. Bought this for 45 bucks at Walmart. This is a dream compared to that glitchy Chromecast. Got this thing fully loaded sideloaded Amazon so this thing has every major app and can cast anything I want from chrome. Couldn't recommend this more. However the Google assistant is just ok due to not being integrated with all the apps. But much better than a Chromecast alone.
