Erm. Price so cheap. But since it is bought oversea, how is the warranty? N btw hav u tested it out if can recev dtv?
If the main objective is to watch DTV channels then smart TV feature is not needed mah! Also how to get smart TV at that kind of pricing?
It claims have 1 year warranty wor. Actually I barely watch TV these days, more for my mum to watch the regular dose of tw and Korean soap drama... So long it works on the digital channels is good enough for us.

K2 DVB-T2 box from SINHO now at $20.90 - $2 Coupon - $5 Qoo10 points = $13.90 inclusive of delivery.

Think this is the cheapest so far since 2016 till now.

This seller is reducing price now since it's only a few more months to go before the cut-over after which sales will drop.

Anyway, no clue if their new batch of K2 is the upgraded version which have issues. Also their service level drop, last time email got reply now totally bochup you.

The problematic K2 batch is the ones packaged in "BLUE" box, SINHO is selling the "ORANGE" box. The "BLUE" box got so many complaints on Qoo10, think Qoo10 already pulled them off the shelf already.

AVOID THE "BLUE" BOX DVB-T2 = Super high failure rate within 3 months

Thanks for sharing this.

Who were the seller(s) of the problematic K2?

Buyers just need to recognize the "BLUE" box packaging of the DVB-T2 box + white band of printed logo on the DVB-T2 box lcd screen + power jack aligned with RCA ports. Those are the problematic ones, as mentioned earlier, super high failure rate within 3 months.

No need to name and shame here. Alot of these Qoo10/Shopee sellers are drop-shippers, just want to make quick buck, whoever supply the cheapest China DVB-T2 box, they just take and sell to Singapore.

Yes, I actually read through most of the Qoo10 buyer's reviews + Q&A to reach the conclusion and understand the difference between all the DVB-T2 models.

Actually was "K2" model being mentioned in the ads? I don't recall seeing this STB being sold in Qoo10. Also the packaging can be changed with ease.

Don't see anything wrong with naming the seller(s) if they were indeed selling problematic product. Why let these group grow in the first place?

Anyway, the problematic K2 I initially talk about has the same built as the original one but with a upgraded pcb. Think got additional signal indicator, can't recall the details.

Guys! What's the best option right now for set top boxes (that are redeemable under the IMDA scheme)? Preferably don't have to pay a single cent.

Has anyone compared functionality and all that.

Also, what do i do if i lost the letter?

There are only 2 STB model to choose from, namely Draco and NMS. For the latter, one can redeem online and get it send directly to your mailbox. Draco bundle has better antenna from funke.

Functionality wise should be about the same. One major difference is the remote for NMS has additional button for controlling the TV. In short, one remote for 2 devices. Do take note that both STB doesn't allow playback of recorded TV on PC, ie. it's copy-protected.

Use your NRIC to redeem, that is according to IMDA reply.

Yes, you're right.

If you have the DTV kit, just choose the STB bundle you wish to redeem, it already comes with active antenna so no need to purchase another one.
