Hi Xiao Fan I am looking at purchasing this H96 Max X2.

This is one of your recommendations yes?
Not recommended.

And I can not recommend Tanix TX5 Max any more because you will not be able to get the original version with Tanix Logo here in Singapore, only OEM version without Tanix Logo which one user already reported issue just after a few months.

You may want to take a look at Mi Box S first. If you somehow think you do not like it, then you can look at Beelink GT1 Mini.

Hehe, the user is me, my TX5 Max (OEM) failed less than 3 months after buying it; still has problem flashing.

However, I bought a X96 mini 2/16GB for $28.12. So far it's working just as well as my TX5 Max for toggle and VOD (I don't game but use it daily).

It's about 1/3 of the price of a Mi Box S so if it last long enough, it's actually quite worth it .

Be careful, need to check the product required voltage & frequency, it may not be for singapore.

Input voltage may be 110v instead of 230v
But output should be standard, 5v 1amp or 2amp
Your old power supply set from other brands tv box may be able to use.

most are using universal 110-240 power adaptor.

the only 'problem' is 2-pin us plug.

but don't assume, check the wordings on the adaptor before plugging in.

2 pin us plug still can be used if it is 100-240v

Did you order the tx6?
This is not a s905x2 cpu, i think it's a all-winner cpu, no good, temperature can hit 90degrees. Advise to cancel order. It is a cheap tv box.
You should order tanix tx5 max
Now i saw 3 types of tx5 = tx5 max, tx5 max plus and tx5 pro. Same cpu but different ddr ram(3 or 4) and ethernet speed(100M or 1000M), one of them no external antenna

You are right to say not to buy Tanix TX6, even the original version with Tanix logo has thermal issues.

As for TX5 Max, Gearbest the original version 4GB/32GB here.
https://m.gearbest.com/tv-box/pp_009...ml?wid=1433363

TX5 Pro is an old model using S905X CPU and not S905X2 CPU.

I believe there is no TX5 Max Plus for Tanix original version with Tanix logo.

I believe these two are just wrongly named as TX5 Plus and TX5 Pro. They are just TX5 Max.
