Ordered mine last Friday (28th)

Saw the review of the UG802 which is above the forum and was hooked. A little Android PC sat in my 40" TV's HDMI socket - perfect!

Then I did a few Googles for reviews and some of them weren't the most flattering but I did see that the MK808 was out already and was that little bit better and a bit less buggy than the UG802. There was a bit of a flamestorm on Hot Deals UK when someone pointed to a £30 release of the UG802 when it was £50 the week before (shifting dead stock due to MK808?).

Total cost was £43 inc. free delivery.

Just got to drum my fingers waiting for Lightake to deliver it. Keeping watch on wireless keyboards with built-in trackpads and, eventually, a decent joystick so I can play some of the games that my basic tablet can't handle.

That's a useful start (rooting it) but I'm sure I read somewhere that certain ones are already rooted.

Getting powered USB hub & keyboard via eBay UK.

According to my tracking number it's currently somewhere - I don't know exactly because the website that shows me the tracking details is not loading .. probably being run off a broken Raspberry Pi! :)

Did Lightake ship with UK adaptor, or did you have to buy a UK-plug USB PSU elsewhere?

Ordered one elsewhere.

a) USA plug

B) not enough oomph as it's only got 1A - needs 2A if you want to switch WiFi on!
