    Looking for an android tv box

    I'm looking for a cheap but decent little android tv box (no, not preloaded with Kodi and all that) I saw a few deals on here a while back, but I'm looking for good (cheap) brands and good sellers,
    cheers!

    Look for an amlogic s905x box, with 2gb ram, can get them for £25-3 from China or £30-40 from the UK. If you want it for kodi then run libreelec from a fast microsd card (samsung evo) and it will out perform most other boxes this side of £100-150.

    I have a couple of the nexbox A95x boxes which run great but most support libreelec.

    Bit of an open-ended scenario considering most boxes have pre-installed Kodi (with or without add-ons) and the cheaper options tend to be from far-east sellers with near-impractical support. Possibly best to consider "fulfilled Amazon" as a credible supplier, in which case random options delivered ex-UK with usually volatile pricing / stock:
    £32 2GB RAM 8GB storage S905X Android 6 amazon.co.uk/dp/…IW/
    £36 2GB RAM 16GB storage S905X Android 6 bluetooth amazon.co.uk/dp/…WO/
    £37 2GB RAM 16GB storage S905X Android 6 bluetooth 18month warranty (no idea how the buyer enforces warranty) amazon.co.uk/dp/…YJ/
    Life is a lot easier with a wireless mini keyboard/mousepad such as around £8.15 backlit USB rechargeable with UK keyboard layout amazon.co.uk/dp/…HW/

    Worth keeping an eye on cex. Picked up the MINIX x64w for £32. Grade B, looks like new just no box..

    You say you don't want it for Kodi but don't mention what use you do have in mind for it....
    If it's just for video streaming then without Kodi a Roku box is fine streaming/catchup player...

    But If you want it for other Android stuff (games/Emulation etc...just ignore me

    aha, literally just want it for some basic for browsing stuff, I have a full media server setup at home, so if I wanna watch something, I just stream from that
    I think I'll go with AndyRoyd's suggestions

    anyone got a H96 Pro+ hearing alot of good things about this box
