There are many types of Android boxes out there
There are also 2 types of Android boxes when it comes to what is inside:
They are 2 different android versions and both have pros and cons
This is the most common of all the android boxes type. THis picture is just one example of what could be but you will definitely see the difference between this and Android TV
Other than the obvious that it is android, the real only pro to this is that you can install anything on it and with the right keyboard/mouse remote, you can do just about anything. Even if you get a remote that has Gyro, you can still play a lot of games.
Many android software developers forget that there are Android boxes out there and only design their apps for TOUCH. With that said you will find many apps/games that just don't work properly no matter what you do. It is trial and error
So far there are only 3 boxes and 2 TV companies out there that have this on them.
This has many features right on the home screen like featured articles, radio stations, or YouTube videos just to name a few. It is also very customizable. You can install many apps through a USB stick but in Google play you are only given what is designed for the box making it easier to know what won't work taking the guessing game away.
To access any apps not found in Play, you need a app called Sideload Launcher which can be found in Play so maybe it is not really a CON
I have added other articles that you can find more useful information on apps and boxes
