Looking for cheap Android box

10
Posted 20th Dec 2019
Hi guys

I am looking to get a cheap but good enough Android box.

I am wondering if guys could advise anything not looking to spend loads....I have Nvidia shield being recommended a lot but that's not what I am after.

a device which could run apps such as teatv etc.

other requirement is to have optical out to connect to 5.1

thanks in advance

I have the H96 max which you can get for just over £20. It’s on the latest Android 9 and is really quick

It does have optical out I have the exact same one
Don't get any of the ones mentioned. Rockchip are junk and the s912 and s905w are old (although still work).

Get this, I've just got a few of the 4gb/32gb for £24 and delivered in a week, latest amlogic processor and run great, optical out, gigabit network and coreelec support. With coreelec it'll out perform a shield.

It's obviously up to the buyer, but I got one and two friends and all got them within a week with no issues, I suspect they were shipped locally even though it said from China as mine came with a Yodel label over a Chinese label (possibly shipped to a unit already in the UK). I ordered Monday and got it on the Friday.
any more for any advice
