    I have the xiaomi Mi box. It is really good. Google ceritifed which is a plus. Netflix, dstv now and showmax all run well. Interface is really good and the voice capabilities work well.

    The only cons are:
    No ethernet
    Still running android 6 - Xiaomi pulled the software update due to some major bugs. They hoping ot still release the update.
    Xiaomi just released the Mi Box S internationally. Same specs but andoid updated to 8.


    Im actually looking to purchase another one. Waiting for a special. I bought mine on a daily deal for R1200 about two months back.

    No problem with this box. Myself and 2 friends using it. Official netflix support is coming soon via update. In meantime sideload of netflix works like a charm

    Yes and what's nice about takealot is that if you not happy you can send it back for full refund within 30 days - no questions asked. So nothing to lose.
