    Don't think you can get kodi on a printer

    I am using Beelink Mini MxIII and had no issue with it. Your provided link takes me to hp printers website.

    1GB RAM is not enough

    I would pay the extra £3 for this

    It's a good price for it, looked on WISH and they are going for £40 upwards.

    Price is in dollars. Do you know where it is shipped from? It says free delivery. Is that to UK?

    Yes bud. I've ordered a few things from them in the past and ppl have said u might have to pay import fees but I think they go via Amsterdam iirc. Took about a week and half.
    Dollars to uk works out about £27. They come from USA

    Seems good for just a few quid more. Anyone got this box?

    As it is an Android box can we install any apps from Google Play?

    Haven't got that box but I stupidly purchased a Beelink 805 (or whatever it's called) 1Gb TV Box about 6 month ago - yes I can use Kodi to stream to my Home Media system but for anything else or viewing a browser page at the same time is like watching paint dry.

    That's why I agree with chocci - 2Gb will give that little bit of room to fully utilise for the sake of a few quid - you will thank people for taking that advice.

    I still don't understand why manufacturers still make 1Gb devices when the cost difference is so small and production costs/supply costs could b reduced if 2Gb RAM was standard/norm

    How many good quality smartphones still use only 1Gb RAM?

    I got the Gearbest Sunvell T95m box (2Gb version) and am very pleased so far. Looks to be slightly cheaper as well.

    Yep

    chocci

    Yep


    I would also uninstall kodi and install a fresh one from the play store then put on a build like pulse or wookie
