Pros
XBMC, small form factor
Cons

Summary
If you're a fan of XBMC and you have a hard wired connection to your media this is a great piece of hardware.
Using the Linux firmware from May 2013, booting directly to XBMC, it was more responsive than my ATV2.

I briefly tinkered with the Android platform and didn't really care for it, as I bought it specifically for XBMC. In XBMC I tested WiFi playback, but found the networking couldn't keep up with a 2GB .mkv file, as I expected. I suspect I could have fixed it by playing with the cache settings, but since I have the option to use wired ethernet, I didn't bother. The same file played flawlessly wired.

I wasn't a big fan of the remote, I prefer more buttons. As an experienced XBMC user, it was easy to configure my inexpensive Harmony 300 universal remote to do all of the extras I look for.

I realise that it's not for everyone, but it's a great purchase for those who like to tinker with XBMC, the best media player platform of its kind.

Pros
Good support from XIOS.
Android XBMC is fast when upgraded to latest firmware and XBMC.
comes with HDMI cable.
Cons
Netflix doesn't work properly.
Doesn't come with micro SD
Summary
You have to update  the system for it to work well, otherwise its very laggy. I'm using android XBMC and it works really well from streaming my home medias to XBMC. The video playback quality in comparison to my ATV 2 is so much better. I got the M3 version.

Pros
When Linux is installed, runs XBMC like a dream
Cons
Sense remote does not work with Linux, and box is too slow not to use Linux
Summary
Ships with Android 4, but the experience is too slow and laggy to keep running it that way. A Linux upgrade is easily available, and takes less than 5 minutes to install. Once Linux is installed, it's like night and day...menus don't lag, everything pops right up when you click it. I wouldn't have bought the bundle if I had known the Sense remote didn't work in Linux...now I have a useless remote that I paid $20 or so for. :(

Pros
- Runs XBMC and plugins smoothly with the Linux build.
- External Storage
- 1080p

Cons
- Poor wireless signal and will not work with many routers like netgear or others
- Needs a wired connection under linux and has a weak signal with the ICS android operating system
- You will have to run linux for XBMC until they add hardware acceleration with ICS
- Runs hot
- Will not work with my new Toshiba 55 3D tv (Screen is all Purple)
Summary
I've owned this box for over a month and at first I was very disappointed at first because running XBMC on ICS gave me choppy results for most of the plugins. I then upgraded to the Linux build and had no problems with choppy video.

You will have to run this box with a wired connection because the Wifi is very weak even with the router a few feet away.

I had a problem running on my new Toshiba 55L6200U 3D TV but the problem is Toshiba's fault and not PIVOS. Problem may be fixed in the next update  and force the TV to run in a certain mode to not let it have a purple hue.

Pivos is working hard at updating and fixing most bugs and the new nightly builds of XBMC keep getting better and better. I recommend this if your want a box for XBMC but do not want to dish out $250 - $300 for a Jailbroken Apple TV 2.

Pros
Nifty android apps
Cons
Difficult to set up
Summary
Overall not impressed.

I read many positive reviews before purchasing this. It was possibly because not to many were in users hands

Now I see more negative than positive and I can agree.

It is not easy to set up. Was not able to get it to stream from my Dlink dns323 nas. It could see the nas in file manager but did not recognize the files.
There is a beta version of xbmc for this device which did see the files and streamed well.

Pros
Kinda Neat, small form factor and small price tag
Cons
Mostly Doesn't work reliably, you get what you pay for.
Summary
It's a really cool idea and the price is right, but sadly this really isn't anything other than a development device. I'll keep playing with it and I knew it was a gamble as far as purchases go, but I imagine that someone that didn't might be rather unhappy.


Really wanted to like this thing, but I just couldn't get any actual use out of it. At least it was cheap I guess.

Pros
does basic functions
Cons
Crashes unstable
Summary
This thing is a pretty good idea of a system, but the instability was unbearable. Constant crashes make the most basic function barely usable. Maybe in future updates this will be fixed.

Pros
Very compact, 3 USB ports
Cons
Not ready for prime time
Summary
Software is buggy. In some cases unusable. Choppy video, sound won't start for several second or minutes after video. No 5.1 audio out. Service is e-mail only and takes days to answer. They say the problem is HDMI switching out of my AV Receiver, but I have a top-of-the-line Yamaha which works fine with both my previous media players. FYI sound does work OK if HDMI out is plugged directly into TV. Return policy was exchange for same only (when I bought it) so caveat emptor.
