Good price for specs, make sure to select UK plug for this price. I also added insurance and used PayPal having had issues with gearbest in the past.

Why Cold? Looks a decent spec. for the price? Is it just the fear of Chinese websites?

Agreed. Very good price for the spec.
Good little box - heated
In my experience, the budget boxes have pretty poor wifi performance (EDIT) but the reviews seem positive

Does this support HDMI-CEC?
I'm not bothered about the on/off commands, just navigation with my TV remote.
The same item on Amazon.com says it does but then again, it says it's only HDMI 1.4

Always a minefield with these things - none of the sellers actually know what they're selling.
Might take a punt anyway - cheers OP

Had a few points on GB so got it for £19.50
Took a punt, thanks OP

Supports HDMI-CEC according to freaktab website

I would have purchased if it had s905x amlogic chip, first time come across the rockchip...Much difference? Would it run Libreelec?

Eh?

Anything under £135 No charge

Price now gone up to £38, please expire
BubaMan

Eh?


VAT element still applies below £135. Plus the carrier's variable admin fee of £10+. In reality, it's unlikely item would be pulled unless using an expedited delivery service.

Oh - OK...
I've been lucky so far with imports but I don't think I've ordered anything more than £50

No LibreElec and Rockchip tend to be less supported so it won't be as good at all, probably why it's going cold.
