hope I am in the right area,
has any one got or seen or used a sumvision cyclone mini pc ?
just want a bit of info on them if possible.
how are they for playing hd films e.t.c without overheating , reseting and the likes, had a couple of google sticks and stuff and the all seem to overheat and reset.
after something to use kodi on
+ use as a catchup tv device for the likes of bbc itv 4od 5od

thanks in advance for any info

In my opinion sumvision are a load of shite. If all you want is something to run Kodi on you can get an Amazon fire tv stick for £35.

I am using daughters old laptop with a few keys missing and no good battery at moment in front room, takes a while to come on + resets now & then, a pain when half way through a film.

if money was no problem it would be a i5 or i7 nuc , looking to spend up to approx. £200 mark top end for a mini type pc or something
kodi + catchup tv as the missus has cancelled tv license as she only watches coronation street

To be honest if £200 is your budget and you have a dish you could do worse than the box i have (Amiko A3) Can get the box ( which comes preloaded with XBMC ) and a sat sub.
All in that would probably cost a little less than £200. Box is £159 and could probably get a sub for £30 to £40. IF you dont have a dish and are adamant you just want kodi you can get a G-box Q for £80.
Got one for my sister & she loves it.

the amiko a3 + sab clone look good but duel core (but what a nice box this looks ..if a had my tv license still , I would have tried one) the gbox looks good found it on amazon for £79 as you say..(is it a good box then ? I wanted wired instead of wi-fi and this has both, prefer wired ) looks good actually
thanks again for all info from all
