Here's my take on certain devices running Kodi.
I have installed Kodi on a WD box running WD DLX firmware and an Android box. Both are alright but there is always lag as the internal memory is too low if you ask me.
I think a dedicated mini-pc is probably the best to use. I know everybody has different ideas about what is best t o use but I'm talking about personal preference.
I have a Zotac ID69 in the bedroom to stream just about everything I have on my network. I have installed Kodi and it never lags when it runs. Even though it is running on Celeron cpu, it run whatver I throw at it.
Having said that, I actually bought a new one today to go in the living room to replace my WD box.
The new box I'll have is a Zotac MI522 running on I3 cpu and can have up to 16gb ram and I will add a 1tb hard drive so I can use it as a pvr as well once I put in a USB tuner to capture OTA.
The box itself is no bigger than a VESA 4 hole plate. It is also about maybe 1.5 inch tall. Really reliable for an HTPC.
Again, personal opinions are like bum orifices. Every one has one.
