That link says 1080p on the hdmi output, and only 100Mbit ethernet.

Huh. The person that told me about the M4 said that they all had 4K output.

Oh well. I guess they had to remove those things to decrease the cost due to the fact they have an m.2 connector and DDR4 Ram.

Most of them fail in the support area.
