Review - Comparing M3S with M3:
The new Moonbox M3S is white in colour vs the black of M3. All the accessories (A/C adapter, ethernet cable) are also white in colour. It's footprint is roughly the same size as before except it is lower profile (not as high) as the previous generation. The positioning of the ports have changed somewhat but the same type / quantity of ports are all there. At the front there are additional lights to show its status vs the one embedded LED on the previous version.
The weight is the first thing you'll notice that's different about the new box. It feels significantly heavier and more dense. The remote has changed as well with the addition of some buttons for controlling your TV. Otherwise, a remote from the M3 would work with the M3S as well. The A/C adapter takes a lower input current at 0.35A instead of the 0.5A from the M3 A/C adapter. But otherwise they both output at 5V 2.0A.
Boot up time is relatively the same but once boot, the response time is much faster and snappier. In fact they added a transition animation for switching screens when starting or exiting an application. The same apps that were available for the M3 are also available for the M3S. None of the discontinued apps are present to avoid confusion. I did not notice any change in speed in loading the videos or shows, as that's primarily a function of your network speed. Kodi 15.0 does come preinstalled as an app but no settings or tuning or optimization has been done. You'll need to install add-ons or get someone to do that for you in order to view any content whatsoever.
Just set up KODI with some add-ons and watched Interstellar in 1080P. The video performance was stellar! No buffering, no stuttering, very snappy skips (forwards or backwards). Audio is synchronized with the video. This is exciting stuff!
Moonbox is one of the latest android powered IPTV devices that allows you to watch asian TV content, whether it be live TV streaming, delayed timeshifting TV streaming, archived episodes, movies or even games.
It differs from existing IPTV devices like TVPad in that it is a true android device and allows installation of APK either manually or via Google PlayStore. It is better than generic android boxes as there are Moonbox specific apps that connect to content servers that authenticate the validity of the device's MAC address to filter out the general public.
From a pricing standpoint, it is cheaper than the TVPad but provides more content in a way that is organized better and easier to look for content to view, whereas the overall layout of the TVPad is not as intuitive. Admittedly, it is more expensive than generic android boxes but the exclusive access to content servers explains why that is.
For the majority of overseas Chinese, this box is a must have. If you already have a TVPad, get the Moonbox to supplement your viewing pleasure as the the stream sources on the TVPad have been reported to be unavailable at certain times, i.e. during World Cup. If you don't yet have a IPTV device, get the Moonbox first as it has MORE content than the TVPad to offer and much easier to find.
If you have a Moonbox, post up your feedback. If you don't have a Moonbox, post up your questions!

Welcome to the era of MoonBox III+
Exclusive only to RFDers
There are some big changes happening at MoonBox coming in the near future, but I'm really excited to tell you that people who participate in my group buys going forward will have first dibs on this new feature I'm personally calling "MoonBox III+". This is something exclusive to us that the distributor has offered for the overwhelming support we have shown. He's assured me that no one else gets the MoonBox III+ until it becomes publicly available around the world. But we get a sneak peek!
What makes MoonBox III+ better than MoonBox III sold by generic resellers in pmall and online, are 90 high quality channels, which of particular note is NBA HD!
One app to rule them all. No need to jump around to different apps for different channels. Much higher quality.
(fear not, previous group buy participants, i'm still seeing if there's a way to MoonBox III+ your MoonBox III.)
