Found this fantastic android tv box for £27.99 delivered using code elec from BangGood.
Imp specs are as below
Amlogic s912 processor
2GB RAM
16GB storage
UK Adopter.

don't forget Topcashback which should knock it down a further £1.65 when its tracked and paid (had loads and never had an issue and always paid)....
potentially this tv box can be had for just £26.34. This is a fantastic price for a good spec box in a very long time.

Not sure how to link the picture....

Same here, looks like they dont have the uk adaptor version.

There was 1 with EU adapter in stock and numerous with US adapters in stock.
All same price.
Edited by: "alfreer1" 17th May

Why is this expired? Because no uk adapter? Cmon

Thx OP, bought one with eu adaptor and TCB tracked at £1.65

You can get this for under £25 using the code 20HETM which takes off 20%.

Thanks!

Thanks OP gone for this, good spec for the price (about £23 after cashback), but bit worried about no wifi ac or aeriel, no gigabit lan, no bluetooth and reports of unstable OS. Hopefully the 7.1 update will fix things. We'll see...

No bt? oO how the heck will I use my remote.

It comes with an IR remote. Or put a bluetooth adapter in one of the two usb sockets?

Anyway seller sent me a message it is OOS however they had 2 with UK plug and like 16 with other plug at time of my purchase. Have it refunded and I'm not unhappy because of the mixed reviews about wifi performance and lack of BT / gigabit lan. At the end have bought a more expensive one with s912 soc / 3GB RAM / wifi ac / gigabit lan using the code above for 43, we will see.

Is there an import tax on this

Unlikely it will get stopped, but if it was then there would be some charges to pay.

For anyone who bought this box, here's a Russian forum with lots of interesting modding going on, if you can understand the dubious Google translation...

Just got mine but only got 1 GB ram and 8GB storage

Just got mine but only got 1 GB ram and 8GB storage !!



Which mains plug did you order (were you early enough on the deal for the UK plug or did you get EU/US)? Does it say 2GB/16GB on the box and show 1GB/8GB in settings on the device or is it 1GB/8GB on both?

got an adapter - says 1gb/8gb both on the box and when powered up - AND in fact just looked my order says 1gb BUT the link etc to their site tha I follwed says 2GB /16GB so my order achkowledgment if I had read it in detail would have told me but why would I expect that to be different !!?!?

Received mine, but just cannot update to android 7.1. Copied files to SD card and although File Explorer can locate the files, when you come to update, neither of the suggested update methods can "see" the image. Anybody else succesfully updated?

I did flash the custom rom with root, but was full of russian stuff so I went back to stock. They do explain how to root the factory rom but the translation is incomprehensible to me See if you can decipher it...

To get root 7 Androide did:
1.Nado SuperSu create a text file without an ending .txt text
BOOTIMAGE = / dev / block / boot

2. Flash card throw Recovery for 7 Androyd created Fail SuperSu and SuperSU.zip (5,63 MB)
3. Boot into Recovery with USB there "Advanced" ==> "File Manager" find the file on a flash drive that put his name it .SuperSu in and copy it into the folder / system
3. Without leaving the Recovery go to "Set" and set SuperSU.zip (5,63 MB)
