It comes with a version of Kodi 16.1 Jarvis called RKMC.

I tried to uninstall the RKMC version but could not find an uninstall inside Settings. I will look into this more since Kodi 17.6 Krypton would be a much better setup.
 
The system information in Kodi shows hardly any resources being used.

The Netflix App comes installed which had no problems streaming videos.

It would only play standard definition due to Netflix restrictions.

Netflix requires a box be DRM certified or it will only play standard definition and not HD resolution.
 
Testing the WiFi I used SpeedTest.net Ookla App which gave the results at 47Mbps Download, and 21Mbps Upload.

While not the best WiFi speed it will work well enough to stream videos
 
Standard definition video requires 10Mbps download speeds while the new HD 4K streams require a minimum of 25Mbps.
 
Running AnTuTu Benchmark Version 6.2.6 gave an overall score of 34860.
