Yes there was a report that one even got TX6 at S$36.14 from Shopee. So the cost can be very low.

The idle power is high and that is the main issue with this box. CPU could easily reach above 90 degree C based on AIDA64 app report. Then the CPU may start to throttle and then the box will become even not responsive.

Hopefully more OTA updates can fix this. The latest OTA seems to make it better for normal operation.
This happens either the OS is mining coins or they used a factory reject CPU.

These canít be fixed. Things are cheap for a reason.
