Looks decent. I assume "XBMC" means it supports local LAN streaming from another PC?
Anyone actually have this that speak to the performance?

I don't think it's "hard drive", should be SSD-based storage. Also for similar price you should be able to buy a similar spec box with a keyboard on eBay.

XBMC was the name of an open source GUI HTPC application that has since been renamed to KODI.

Think about it as an open source version of windows media center.  It can play local media as well as stream from the network...and there are plenty of extensions/add-ons to do, well, just about anything you would want.  Google KODI for more info.

If you're going to buy a new box like this, I would HIGHLY recommend getting the latest CPU (S912) with the highest memory for future expansion.  While this will be sufficient for most people's needs, if you ever plan on doing any gaming on it (it's Android, so you can), then you may want to consider the upgrade.

Personally, I like the H96+ Pro with 3GB/32GB.  You can get one for $30 more from than this from China/HK, but I would make sure you buy from a US warehouse/seller in case you need returns, as they can run as much as $30 (or more) to China.

Here's one from Ali Express:
H96+ PRO

I own one and they are very nice.
