If you have prime, the short answer is no.

This box has only 1GB of ram and comes from a Chinese seller with some questionable feedback.

Yeah, no.

eBay buyer protection is as good as gold. If you get trash/defective product you are protected and eligible for 100% refund. The reviews on this are mostly good (see amazon reviews for previous gen model MXQ) and if it is being used exclusively as a kodi box this isn't a bad buy for under $30 and free shipping. 1GB of ram is fine so as long as you have the internet speeds to support the demand for streaming. This looks like a low risk/high reward buy. I just bought two for family members who have been wanting a kodi box.

Even if it does work, you have no idea if they use lead-based plastic in the case and wires.

You raise a good point. You never know what you'll get from these tech devices manufactured in China. We should all abstain from buying anything made in China, for safety reasons of course. I'll have to take inventory of any made in china products later today and toss those things out.

Well, as long as you feel good about your purchase, then who could fault you for that?

The last thing I got (some Pi heatsinks) from China via eBay, from a seller with much better ratings, took well over a month to receive. Personally, I'd have been better off just paying a couple of bucks more and ordering from a US seller and now I do. The other problem with that, is that some of of the 'foreign' eBay account holders open US based accounts and drop ship.

As far as the 1GB ram limitation, that's a tough one. I already have an Asus Google Nexus player with 1GB ram (rooted, tablet firmware flashed, etc), with no 4k options (don't care at present) and there really are some noticeable cache and app limitations. Kodi mostly runs fine, but even 1080 streams overflow the buffer FAST (under 300 meg of ram free with just loading up Kodi)!

Anyhow, hope it works out for you.

Is this really a concern? Unless you're chewing on the wires and plastics I would think you'd be fine. Maybe I guess if you have kids that like to gum the remote?

How does this compare to the Pi2 or the Fire TV box/stick? The Pi2 can handle 95% of what I throw at it, but that last 5% is incredibly annoying when it happens. I'm assuming this wouldn't do great with HVEC decoding?
