    Using both Egreat and Zidoo since many years. Each one still has/had its FW flaws but development is steadier by Zidoo lately. But even with those they are excellent players as they are and I can recommend both.
    When back home in a couple of weeks will do an evaluation of Z9S which one can compare then with my A10/A11 evaluation. Will first updated my Egreat review to the latest official FW release).

    The HW made by both is just excellent (A5/Z9S, A10/Z10 and A11/A13/X20).
    I personally prefer the looks of Egreat but the connectivity/ports of Zidoo).

    You are also very rude to others who complain about the way others who complain about that the way Egreat treat there customers and there are a lot who agree with me plus those who have left because of Egreat lies. You are Also very rude as You have spoken to others as the same way as you talked to me! WHAT I CAN NOT STAND IS BEING GIVEN BULLSHIT. I brought my Egreat Player for the things it said it would do and Promised all I wanted it to d0 was play Blu rays I did not want menus or 4k all I wanted it do was play my films and had a poster showing the film nothing extra THAT WAS IT NOTHING ELSE!!!! I WANTED THIS PLAYER TO DO I do not want it to play SACD or any Music as My Hi Fi i very good at playing Music doing this. My CD player which is a valve Chord player cost near enough £10,000 and that is just for the transport and my player plays SACD like a dream My cables for my system cost more than you payed for your A11 ( That is for one cable) My vinyl is even better so it should my whole system is about £25,000 over the years I have built it since retirement . I will scream and shout when a company I spent my money even if it was only £180 who has consistently let buyers down every time. All I wanted this player to do was show me a film with no extras so did not have to go along my collection of Blu Rays without bending over looking for the film but sit at my sofa and pick my film either from the projector or TV screen but it can not even do that right and you Praise them! You must be the only one. Lets see you ask Egreat either on here or go on face book and and as Egreat tech a question and see if you get a answer. I am rude to others who are rude to me what sort of man are you who let company treat you as they treat others. I think you have to join the real world and get a life. Because at the moment you know nothing And I am Acting my age Because I do not like Idiots like you being rude to me because you live in a Glass ball and in LA LA Land Even the importers have stooped selling the stuff now it is the same In the USA AVSF forum you can not see a single EGreat players. I also do a lot of travailing to Malaysia as I own property out there where you to see Egreat Players out there but not now because everybody are saying they are not selling Why because Egreat do not stand by there Customers. Maybe in China they well sell them because they are do not care about Q I will eat my words quite Happily if Egreat promise to do what they say they will do do Fix the software to be fixed even if it is Android 5.1 I do not think we will see Android 7 ( I mean fancy bringing out there latest Player The A13 with Android 5.1 WHICH IS OVER TWO YEARS OLD !! Everybody else has 7 or 7.5 or even 8 What Answers have you ot to that then Rozel I also do not like people who throw there weight around. I am a very easy guy to get on with but when sombody takes the Piss to often then I let rip like I said if Egreatever cures any of there problems even if it is only 50% I will be a happy Hector. But until that day comes I will moan a moan whether you like it or not

    in any case...i will move to another player by the end of the year probably, i hope new gen players will be out by then...all this is sad, as we were promised NOUGAT and even VIDON new version long long ago; after over 2 years..nothing; still 9 months to go with egreat...:confused::confused:

    Again I agree with you 100% it is very sad that a player that promised so much Egreat could not deliver. I am going to do the same as you when I get back from Malaysia on Dec 7th unless a miracle does happen with Egreat which I doubt very much. I might go for the Zidoo A10 wait and see what Nice- Monkey thinks or wait until New Year like your good-self

    I can understand your frustration, I really do. I haven't posted anything in quite a while, as I have become so bored of all this situation. It's been 1,5 year since they first promised Android 7 (and on that premise I bought the A10) and all we got was a beta firmware. Since then, silence....

    Apart from that, have you tried the beta A7? Aside from a few quirks that I've learned to live with and found workarounds, it's been rock solid for my needs (mostly 4k encoded movies and series).

    I was also thinking of changing the player but I don't see any seriously updated or released ones. The only thing that would make me change is the form factor or capabilities of an A10-11 with the inclusion of 4k Netflix and Amazon Prime apps

    @depmesh indeed long time...yes tried beta but not satisfied, actually i was hoping since then that final version would be out as the beta was "quite ok"
    so it is a SHOCK to see that despite the HARD part already done...egreat did not make it final !!! what on earth are they waiting for ???? DINOBOT u5 has 4k netflix and amazon already...so you could already get one..plus its got android TV...8.0 !

    In the western world we tend to take ourselves leading for product sales but in fact for media players we are just riding along with the Asian markets. ;)
    So don´t be surprised development is lead by what is being asked for over-there. Asians also tend to spend more on the looks of things and go for higher models far easier even when having identical functionality. :cool:

    this long silence from Egreat is really not good at all ! they gave us no indication, no clues, no project status, nothing !!!!! what is going on @Morgan ??? with rita..news were rare, but they came out once in a while, with richard also...

    I think it is high time to consider selling off the Egreat A10 and ditch the whole brand altogether...I have never seen such a bad product support before. This is definitely the first. With all its promised hype blah blah blah...there is no coming back for Egreat now if they not gonna do something to save their "reputation". Egreat, if you are hearing this...its now or never.

    I also think Egreat are dead in the water as far as the UK anyway they do not give toss about us. I think at the start they thought they would try Europe and USA everything seemed to go OK then we started to ask to many Q to many times like when is Android 7 coming out . The Chinese do not care about it they are quite happy with OS 5.1 as long as it works they are happy. For example look what I say about there home Theatre system they are asking £5,000 we would not give you £500 but it sells in droves in the Asian middle class market. the same with the A13 which is also 5.1 that is selling well out there as well. I have tried to contact them in other ways email and Face book no answer.If you look where the Egreat players are going now it is the Philippians & Pakistan . There might be a few who think Egreat will stay with the UK (Like Rozel) but Egreat is finished here.And nenito 2k my dear friend I think you have as much chance of seeing Android 7 as as you have seeing snow in North Africa Egreat are selling thousands of these players in Asia and that is all they care about now. I have tried contacting Morgan and Richard when he was on here last week but nether of them replied

    Snow in North Africa is not that uncommon! It does not stay obviously but nights can be cold.

    I see many users saying they are going to dump eGreat which is, I must say, totally understandable as software development seems to of died, but where do we go? Most of the rivsal boxes out there also have serious issues. The Z9S, which I have, has a much better media browser but its buggy and the picture quality is NOT as good as eGreat. The Minix U9H, which I had, has lousy software development, audio issues and other issues. The Vero 4K, which is my favourite at the moment out of my 3 boxes does have its issues and the picture quality is NOT as good as eGreat but it does have superb customer relations and software development. I could go on, HiMedia, I had a Q5, it was ok, I sold it though, picture quality is HiSilicon but the box just didn't impress me. Then we have the popular box, the NVShield which I really disliked. Its an odd console media streamer hybrid that does neither that well. The only one I haven't managed to play with is the Dinobot Mini U5 but I had a reply email from Futeko a while back (btw they no longer sell them) in response to a media player question I asked and they said the Dinobot was just so so, not so good build quality, average picture quality etc etc.

    The thing is, I want picture quality, compatibility and sound first and foremost and it frustrates me because eGreat do, in a round about way, deliver on this better than the others, BUT, and its a big BUT, the software is rapidly becoming (and for many has already become) the deal breaker. These boxes such as eGreat, Ziddo, Minix etc are not cheap, we buy them in good faith expecting at least regular software & compatibility updates but they all seem to fall flat on their face with this. Why are people who have upgraded from the Zidoo X9s to the Z9S regretting their purchase? The forum is full of posts talking about this. I never had the X9S but it seems the Z9S has no picture quality improvements, the software is very similar and it has issues with 4K whilst the X9S does not.

    So, after my ramble, where do we go? Suggestions please :)
