[Factory Direct] R69 H3 Quad Core 1GB/8GB Android media box - $39.98

Warm deal and I know, I know, its no Nvidia Shield Android box in terms of quality. But for those looking for a decent android TV box for streaming, I think it should suffice. It says brand new not refurb.

I can get Amazon Fire sticks anywhere but I don;t see too many retailers selling android boxes in store. I like it has an ethernet port and so we don;t need to reply on wonky wifi signals while streaming.

Thoughts? Any better recommendations for new cable cutters like me? This or an Android TV with built-in Android interface?

1GB is will not suffice unless you want SD and maybe some 720p streams.

$39 without tax and free shipping from amazon, you get a much better one
thanks. I just like the idea of buying it at a local store in kingston (home) or ottawa (work) where I go often. Canada Computers has some but prices are more than this. I guess I could give this a shot.

For a cheap box go with the cheapest s905w you can find, 1GB is fine, and boot into CoreELEC off of an SD card.

The IR remote won't work so you'll need a RF remote or keyboard like the Rii, and you won't be able to get Netflix in HD.

you lost me at "s905w". Not looking for boot, root, switching remotes or anything the least bit complicated. Just like to turn the tv on and flip channels. Might even go back to....gulp....cable, because this android box stuff is frustrating for a newbie.

Low-end Android boxes are a dime a dozen, even if you're cheap do yourself a favor and get a Mi Box instead.

yes I do see many of these floating around. Can you post some links to the one you suggest? Nvidia shield is 199.99...looking to spend much less for a decent box. OR....should I get an Android TV instead? I do need a new TV anyways......

I know this box is trash, when you can get a fire stick 4K on sale for about the same price.
