While I was reviewing the new GoStreamer G5+ Box, I thought that I would put together a video that would show exactly how these Android Boxes work and the pluses and minuses that come with them as well.
I am of the belief that if you spend most of your time within Kodi Media Center, the Android Boxes are a great option due to the low price points and powerful systems.
