At SGD$287 and free Amazon delivery, its quite cheap.

It comes with the USD60 wireless controller thus making it a good bundle price.

it doesn't really matter if vlc player support Android TV...does it?

Even if it doesn't do hardware decoding, the CPU is powerful enough that software decoding should not be a problem.

Still, those that is buying/bought it, please test and let me know.

Thanks.

No need to root, just enable installation from external sources.
