So this is just an android box. Why buy this instead of something cheaper

A lot of cheaper boxes (and there are not many) are running an older android os. This is like buying an older PC to watch movies, the hardware is not always up to it. So watch out for android 2 up to android 4 as they are now classed as older operating systems. If you want the smoothest playback then always go for the latest os which also means it is running on the latest hardware.

Gogglebox TV also has XBMC pre-installed so all you need do is point to your movie folder on the network and your good to go. Add support forums, money back guarantee, email and phone support and hopefully that answers your question.
