I've owned it for about a year and think I've spent more time turning it off and on to try forcing it to reconnect. I've got it plugged in and speed testing at 360mbps and it drops off about once every 10 mins, takes about 5 goes to reconnect and sometimes just glitches out to the point where you can't turn it on or off, just a black screen with a white light on the box and won't do anything. It's terrible

Terrible, terrible, terrible...
Bought a Vodafone TV to improve picture quality....what a joke...
I have 900mbs internet connection and connected box via ethernet cable.
Picture was blurry and colours were over saturated.
Thought this would be a huge improvement versus standard aerial but result was really disappointing.
TV picture streaming from Apple TV was much better.

Vodafone TV Box running AndroidTV 9
This worked well for about six weeks before picture quality took a dive with colours especially way off the mark. I will send it back if I cannot fix it. Apparently now discontinued! AndroidTV has been rebranded as GoogleTV probably to reduce confusion with the Android phone OS.

Replaced my fetch mini
I started with fetch and have done for years, purchasing a VTV for the bedroom soon purchased another to replace the fetch mini. The remote works much better and it's easier to navigate. Only negative is the TV program guide does not update until you go to that channel.

Doesn't work with NTFS
Useless for me because it doesn't support video files larger than 4gb. It would have been a perfect kodi media player. But if you just want it as a TV tuner for a projector or something, it will work fine.

Bought one, then bought a second. Enough said.
I have a 'smart TV' that probably will never be updated, that was having all sorts of issues running Netflix and Plex. Bought one of these direct from Vodafone, and it's been great. So good in fact I got another one to smarten up an old dumb tv. We also have a HD Homerun so can use that to watch live tv, rather than the built in tuner. They recently updated to Android 9.0 which is good, and has been very stable although admittedly we don't ask much of it. If you want a really good Android TV box then you should probably spend the extra and get ...an Nvidia Shield. That costs maybe four times more than this though. The only strange thing that it doesn't directly support yet is Amazon Prime video. Netflix, Disney, Stan, Plex, sure. Amazon - nope. There are ways to get it on with mixed reports on how successful it is, but for now the best way is simply to cast Prime from a mobile device. Basically, it's not a great android tv box but it's definitely a good one. For the price, it's hard to beat.

Works OK a bit quirky at times
Works OK some times need to restart to get Video Right (Might be the older tv it is connected to)
Netflix, Stan, Disney+ and catch up works well, TV Tuner and TV Guide a bit slow but for $69 (Now $72 i think) good value for a genuine Android TV BOX
Also streams great from my media server.

Could have been great
Fairly good unit
HDMI and live tv issues
Doesnt support items it should
Have been overall dissapointed in what should have been a great unit, would love to see them support it better and keep it current

Android TV 9 Pie update killed it!
Amongst many other bugs, the latest update has removed the use of its USB for NTFS formatted external hard drives. Now useless to me and have requested a refund. Avoid!

Speed Test results poor
Box does what as advertised
Only Issue, speed is not good as PC I did speed tests thru Puffin browser and speed test apps
Tried both Ethernet and Wifi and get the same results
Purchased in October 2019 at Vodafone for $79.00.
Wish I never had
I have had to contact them a number of times. I am using a wifi connectors and these seam to have a extremely limited range of 10 Mtrs and continue to drop out and loose connection add to this a lot of the content I wish to record wont record. Also forwarding and rewinding functions are not user friendly.
Terrible product and service.
Terrible product and service from Vodafone Macarthur store. The manager was extremely rude and unhelpful. Did not give a refund. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. If faulty, and it is most likely, they will send for repairs or give a replacement. Waste of time and money.

Good product by vodafone
Vodafone TV box is good to use and have more features and smoothness while using it on any sort of TV. I will Highly recommended to others to buy that product.
Very disappointed with Vodafone
Very disappointed with this as when we got the receiver, wont work. Was told to take to our local branch in Carnes Hill branch. When we got there, they told us to go to Liverpool branch. Went there but they told us to contact Vodafone and get a receipt number.Rang them and was transfered from one person to another and wanted us to pay. After nearly 2 hours, we managed to arrange one for free which we are still waiting. Very disappointed with Vodafone.
