Pros
Works great when reflashed with linux KODI
Cons
sucks out of the box and poor remote
Summary
this box was a pioneer, the first to get XBMC working on Android. The official linux XBMC port was better, but just found a KODI 14 port that works GREAT...no stuttering. Also put a better 16GB micro SD card in the slot. That may have made a difference. Go to PIVOS FORUMS and search for kodi 14. Not as fast as a dual core box, but does the job

recently upgraded to Minix NOE Z64 Windows box...for better compatibility ...ie XBMC and popcorntime

Pros
You can install XBMC, most powerful media center software with unlimited possibilities.
Cons
May require some time and reading to learn how to switch to XBMC.
Summary
At first time it isn't easy to begin with. Basically the provided Android software is there but not really the video player.
You need to install XBMC set it up and then everithing is ok.
Recommend to insert  a fast micro sd card otherwise it will be slow.

Pros
-Small size/ power footprint
-Linux XBMC development support
-flash-able and root-enabled
-1080p decoding
Cons
-Android leaves much to be desired (exact issue on every android tv box)
-requires a flash to XBMC and a few mods to optimize it.
-library scans are quite slow (but can run in the background)
Summary
I love it!

I bought this during the boxing week sale.

Excellent little device. It took me a few hours to set up the linux image of XBMC which was provided by the Pivos team on their website. I can't recommend using the android OS and that this system should be loaded with the latest XBMC linux firmware from pivos.

Having experience running XBMC on an X86 based HTPC I have a pretty good benchmark of comparison with this little guy.

After a little bit of modding to get my media metadata to cache onto my microSD, I found that everything ran smoother than when I had my VERY large library filling up the 1gb of storage reserved for xbmc).

I found this device to work well with my HD video watching needs. It's currently set up to stream from my home server via Ethernet.

Pros
Small, Low Power, Low Prices for a XBMC device
Cons
Both type of Remote Control not working very good
Not enougth CPU power to watch 1080p
Summary
The device is not able to Play smooth a 1080p some will play smooth some will not.
So it a good device for 720p

Pros
Professionally advertised
Cons
Crappy, lots of things to do right off the box. Very slow and crappy control.
Summary
I got this because it got XBMC supported but turns out, the thing was not reliable. Failed on me where it would freeze than slow bufferings. Very unreliable that I had to give up and return it back to store.

Pros
Quiet, XBMC support!, low power, small form factor, Shipped super fast!
Cons
flashing a new firmware may be scary for some users.
Summary
The Pivos Xios is the only product that I found that does exactly what I wanted with the small form factor and Low power consumption that I was looking for!

Pros
Great media box, easily customizable, lots of support and help, easy set up
Cons
Not for the complete technical Luddite, but simple for anyone willing to take a quick look at a forum for help
Summary
The XIOS is a great media box, and the support for the unit is excellent. I am using the latest Android build (May 7), and it was so easy to flash the update  it was almost comical - and this from someone who is definitely NOT a techie.

The XIOS is the ONLY media box on the market to be officially supported by XBMC.org, and uses hardware acceleration for XBMC - no one else can claim that, not even a jailbroken fruit-like box.

Pros
Very easy to hook up
Tiny
reads USB storage devices reliably
no issue with missing codecs
Cons
HEAT
often ignores the remote control
random reboots
doesn't shut down properly
Summary
This little device is cute. It plays videos, and plugins allow it to play internet radio - sometimes. More often than not, I have to reboot it 2-3 times before it will play a video without choppiness or loud zapping noises in the audio. The Android upgrade had it work great for almost 3 hours, then it got too choppy to watch. Nothing worked at restoring it until I totally wiped the device and started over. Then it worked fine again... for another 2-3 hours. This time, even wiping it didn't improve the performance. Switched to the Linux XBMC version and now it only gets choppy when it is downloading an update  for one of the plugins or the dog sneezes or there is a dirty dish in the sink. It still generally ignores any button presses on the remote control and to even turn it on, I usually have to unplug it and plug it back in. Using any skin other than the horrible ugly default makes it reboot often but randomly. The remote app that's available for android phones works great but won't turn it on.
This is a fantastic TOY for somebody who enjoys being frustrated. If you're looking for a reliable media player, get something else.

Pros
- Extremely Cheap
- Runs XBMC
- Great forum support
Cons
-You need forum support to get this working properly
-Remote is garbage
Summary
THis is a great product and a good value product IF you are prepared to put some work in. The forums are great for helping fix issues and for getting XBMC going. Out of the box this product is bested by several other players but flashing it to XBMC makes it great. You will need a 3rd party remote and a SD card so consider that before you purchase but still at this price a great media player.

Pros
cheap (inexpensive)
Cons
cheap (piece of garbage)
Summary
Both the device and associated remote control(s) are made of extremely lightweight flimsy plastic. Navigating the Android UI took a combination of the included remote and the horribly frustrating gesture-driven Sense wireless remote that I purchased with it. Make no mistake: this runs Android, not Google TV. Android is a joy to use on a touchscreen, but using a remote control? Definitely not. Remote support in the native apps is lacklustre, and predictably nonexistent in apps purchased from the Play Store.

Eventually, I just became so frustrated by fighting with something that I bought to simplify my life that I actually returned an item I'd purchased online for the first time in my life.

You would think by the number of times I've left variations on the same review that I would've learned by now, but: you get what you pay for.
