Long time since I've seen a 2GB/16GB Android TV box go sub £30.
This is hot for a 2gig device.
Remote will probably be the usual comedy job though...
Does it support Skype video calling?

Seems worth buying at this price. With ROM support you'll get a better experience and possibly the next version of Android.

How powerful are these things? Could they run retroarch emulators (specifically N64 and PS1)?

Isn't that ROM only for S912 models of the M8S Pro? On the plus side, thanks as in the comments it says it is for the M8S Pro and KM8 P, and I bought the KM8 P S912 in a deal on here a little while ago.

From Magendanz other ROM thread for the M8S Pro:

Hmmm tempted to get this instead of Fire Stick. I know that the likes of Plex can be controlled with Echo natively these days (as use often with HTPC). Any idea if it's possibly to use an Echo to control searches within the youtube app - without having to type search in using on screen menu all the time - I know fire stick can do that these days but wonder if there's a way for other android based devices to
Any tax payable on this?

Yeah it looks like it. S912 is generally less supported, at least that's how it used to be, but it's the more powerful chipset.
Good spec. for the price. Ordered, thanks.

Your review was for the S912 as well, and yes the S912 is generally less supported as far as I can see. I think because of the significantly lower price of S905X on launch, everyone was doing more with them, most people seemed to focus on either Libreelec or slightly modified roms. However with the reduction in price of the S912 and increase in price of S905X (actual retail prices I mean), plus the fact that S912 boxes seem to be more commonly shipping with Android 7.1, it seems the S912 has more of a custom rom support lately on Freaktab at least.
s905x has xannytech ROM, which is the best by far.

Thanks, may give that a try on my Nexbox.

Going by other China sites (Gearbest, Bangood), use the cheapest non tracked. Takes longer, but your more likely to be charged import duty fees with DHL.

you know what guys, this is an amazing box really, it has widevine level 1 DRM as well, so can play 1080p netflix, and possibly 4k. I'm ordering. HOT
Been looking for something like this. I had 4 options for delivery; standard, sf express, dhl and ems. That's in order of price, oddly dhl being faster was about £5 whereas ems was £11ish. I went with sf express at £2.50 for a 4-8 day delivery...hopefully don't get taxed!
I have this or a similar model from Mecool (posted here) and although the remote looks good, you really need to use the on screen mouse to do a lot of things. This is exceedingly awkward and slow to control using the remote! It's a matter of luck whether the mouse appears or not. Sometimes it just disappears! I've tried to install a few aps, as the built in ones are so cranky. Some just crash on startup. There doesn't seem to be an update to its version of Android. I wouldn't recommend it as a DNLA client. It's awful!
Ordered. I'm planning to use an air mouse i already have. Even if you buy the Minix the standard remote that comes with it is turd.

This is just an experiment to see how it compares to my Minix 8H+

I bought the MX808 years ago and was very good for the money
Can anyone recommend a good air mouse? Also on the look out for a cheap and reliable VPN. Any ideas? TIA

​go on freaktab and get the one with most support from ROM developers. most are the same specs in different boxes, or same specs with cheaper/more expensive components. Always buy amlogic, never rockchip. s905x or s912. atleast 2gb of ram. 8gb storage is fine because of sdcard, but more is better.

If I recall well, the S912 Chipset renders 4k at only 30fps.

Whereas the S905X Chipset renders 4k at a more favorable 60fps?.

Despite the S905X Chipset being the notable inferior Chipset ...

Or at least, that's how it used to be? (so I could be wrong?).
