Anyone has recommendation on very fast Android TV Box? Budget $150 - $250. Thanks in advance!

I can't stand my current TV box which is very slow. Everything is slow by 1/2 beat. Even wifi connection bars on the tv box were way lesser compared to my phone and old tablet. Tv apps run smoothly on my old tablet but on the tv box, it will stutter or even worse, repeat the same scene again and again. At times it will just keep loading n loading.

Thanks for the recommendation. Looks good in terms of the specs, just too bad it doesn't come with spdif port. Since I'm only watching streaming media, I'll go with the tube version.

the problem might be due to the apps you used. if this is the case, the same will happen on your new nvidia shield

I have the same suspicion in the beginning and you may be right but since my tv box is rather old, I think I'll take this as an upgrade. I can't stand the super laggy cursor and response from my air mouse.

as long as it is not older than 8 year, it should still good enough to run most apps.

what you need to do is to disable google play, play services , chrome or other browser.

if you are looking for a "new" box, mibox s is recommended. It is "new" because it is 3-4 year-old.

if you don't mind paying, actually it is the best option.
