Honestly I don't see any advantage or disadvantage. Just that Google firmware is in English. I can read Chinese so no issue for me to use mibox Chinese stock firmware I also can. Flash ROM is just for the fun of it.

stock firmware should be in chinese, except the mi box international version (MDZ-16AB).

If the firmware is compatible, you can buy the mibox3s for rmb299 and flash it with mi box international firmware. You will save $35 if it can be done.

That means only that particular model mibox3s is compatible with the international tvos
The rest of them are actually old posts, looking at the last update date

Not sure whether it is compatible, need someone to test.

If it works, many of us can own mi box international at low price.

I bought one at $99. It is quite good, if it is $65, then .......
