    I bought one a few months ago and it just died.. not sure if it over heated but power light is red and half normal intensity and will not boot.. I can also hear a slight hum in it too.

    Guess I’ll find out what kind of warranty it comes with…lol

      The R10 uses the RK3328 chip while the R99 uses the RK3399 chip which is a better performing chip.

    I have a few T95Z Plus boxes….mistakenly not Sunvell. Knockoffs with a longsys LTM8830 wifi chipset. The wifi max speeds vary greatly between 10mb/s and lower, up to 30mb/s. I currently have capabilities of 120mb/sec from another device which is my max from ISP. I see your wifi test shows 139mb/sec, what is your max speed?
    I bought 1 of these boxes yesterday, out for delivery. Based on the RK chip and 4gb ram, this should be superior.
    I mount all my boxes behind my TVs, heat may play a factor as well. That is partly why I chose this box with the side vents around it.
    My only usage is Kodi. Reliability, video quality, cost, and wifi seem to me my biggest concerns. I will scale up to 5 or 6 boxes, if this performs very well. So anything else that comes to mind, above and beyond your review, would be appreciated.
    Thank you.
