xiaomi mi tv box shipped from eu £52.51 @ Dealextreme

17
Found 3rd Jan
Already posted on aliexpress but found cheaper shipped from eu with dx.com if you don't mind a US plug.

Basically a 4k android tv box with 2gb ram and quad core processor. Reviews seem good. I'm getting one just for the voice remote that comes with it as I think that will be a great feature.

Shipped from China, not EU. All DX EU Direct items are shipped from China.

Caution, until OP confirms this is not the Chinese version, do not buy.... The Chinese version will not work, and you can not root this device

any idea if this is the international model?

Just be careful, it took me about an hour to research Xiaomi with their stupid naming. You need the international version if you want the play store I believe. Otherwise you need to flash it.

I think as standard these ship with international rom. This comes with US plug so will probably need an adapter to use here.

Just to be absolutely clear, this (and any other) "DX EU warehouse" item … Just to be absolutely clear, this (and any other) "DX EU warehouse" item will ship from China / far east, so possibly hit with import fees although unlikely.



EU warehouse, no fees.

OP, I posted the Aliexpress version, you need to be crystal clear here, if this is the USA version, that is not the same as INternational version

US version comes in a orange box, pre configured for a US audience, International Version comes in a plain brown box, and as it comes out of the factory.... now it is not clear if you receive the US version if you are screwed, you can not root these boxes FYI... so personally if there is even a chance you are getting the US version, walk away

in fact STOP...this is the chinese version....anyone who orders this is screwed.....nothing will work...Do Not Buy

EU warehouse, no fees.


DX clearly state that they do not have an EU warehouse and all items are shipped from China:
Q: Do you have warehouse in EU?
A: There is no EU Warehouse, we send EU Direct goods from world factory to EU (27 countries), and have cooperation with Post NL to make faster delivery. All orders are shipped from China, not Europe.

That is completely false, I am sorry OP but there are 3 versions, International, US, and Chinese.... You need to close this deal as this looks like the Chinese model to me, and people are about to waste £50

Can't get anyone on online chat to confirm version. I think leave it. Don't want anyone getting stuck with a brick

Mine came with a english manual, this comes with a chinese manual, plus sites almost always add US or International , in the title

why do people still buy these? just wondering when a fire TV will pretty much do it all without having to do much?

So does this, If you buy the international version of this it runs officially licensed Android TV. Then you can install Kodi from the Play Store. Don’t confuse this with the cheap £30 android boxes with shocking roms. Voice remote and Wifi is excellent too.

You can go for the Fire TV if you want to be with the Amazon ecosystem.

Wow! now I'm interested. Ive had an Nvidia shield and that was phenomenal but restrictive, does this have restrictions e.g. apps like amazon video not available etc? and also how do I know its an international version?

NVidia shield is the best on the market especially for gaming. If you search on here for mi tv there is a deal @ 390 heat with lots of comments looks like you can sideload the Amazon app but offical is coming apparently!

As long as the title or description says "International Version" and its 2gb ram with android 6.0 you will be fine.

I posted it from aliexpress, just follow the link through my profile

did anyone get theirs yet? what version rom did it come with?

No idea if this is the Chinese version or not, but apparently (unless I'm wildly out of date - are the Mi 3S and Mi 3 Enhanced the same - not sure?) you can root and flash an English Rom on the Mi 3 Enhanced, but only for the masochists hotukdeals.com/dea…032?p=28335405
