Check spam folder for 5$ credit the subject would say "Regarding sku145864 you have purchased from DX.com"

Dear valuable customers,

Recently, we offered a special promotion price on one of our popular items: the mini android 4.0 Media Player – sku.145864 External link. The manufacturer made these products available at a discounted price in order to clear stock for the coming New Year.

Unfortunately, after receiving the most recent batch of media players, it came to our attention before shipment that some of these media players have a quality issue that may affect performance. At that time we also discovered that the manufacturer supplied us with a discrepancy in information regarding the processor frequency. In order to test the processors we used our Android benchmark tool from our QC team and it turned out that some of these products may have shipped with a 1 GHZ processor instead of the 1.5 GHZ that we listed under our specifications.

Having known this fact, we tried to find an alternative source but no comparable units were available. We also attempted to have another batch of media players manufactured to the proper specifications but this would have required factory re-tooling that was not feasible in a reasonable amount of time.

Although some of these units that were purchased earlier may not have a performance issue, we have no way to be sure of this. Therefore, we have two options to resolve this issue:

1. Full refund will be issued on this item for anyone who ordered the product regardless of shipment date. We will contact you directly to follow up on this and you may keep the media player.

2. If your order hasn’t been shipped yet, it will be cancelled and you will receive a full refund and a $5 USD coupon code to use toward the purchase of a related Android HD media player here


We greatly apologize for trouble this has brought to you and we are working hard with our manufacturer to solve the problem and create protocols to see that it doesn’t happen again.

Bought this at $35 last month got it yesterday. Main issue is wifi with this model. There is a Uhost2 that is dual core.

Here is a better review:

There is a USB port. HDMI goes into the TV. You can use a powered USB hub to extend your ports. Attach any USB interfaced device then. keyboards, mouse etc etc.

i bought one like this not a month ago for $36. came out crappy though. But for 20 bucks, it just is hard to not order 1 more. Stream music from NAS

At 20 Bucks, I cannot resist. Even if it is not a U2, its a great deal. The Mali 400 GPU is terrific. Will use as a flexible Plex streamer, and anything past that is just bonus!
