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.

Save your money for a better one. It's way too slow processor even I did flash it with the latest firmware. I have xbmc installed but too slow compared to my ATV2 and HP Touchpad.

Yes it makes your TV like a giant Android device. You can plug in a USB hub for multiple devices, I use the Logitech K400 with mine.

What I like about these better than my WD Live is that it has a full web browser. You can also use XBMC and other apps for streaming. I'm not sure on the quality of this stick though.
Ive never heard of this either. Thanks for the info. Can you use this on a laptop or desktop as well?

I bought one! this company is excellent I have bought many things from them. They don't charge any shipping or tax. The only problem it takes 2 to 3 weeks to receive shipping. This company will be the death of Amazon!

XBMC will probably be too slow without hardware accelerated decode.
I believe they're working on getting hardware decode working with similar devices, but it's still in the works.

In any case an ARMv7 CPU and 1GB ram @ $20 is an amazing deal.

Great price for an older model. Look for the quad core I.MX6 sticks to be announced at CES in a few days (Jan 8-11). Should cost under $85, perhaps as low as $50ish.
