These are offered in Shopee I guess?
But be careful whether they really sell the original version with Tanix Logo or just using the picture of the original version but actually sell OEM version with Tanix logo. Better double confirm with the seller. And make sure the model name and the hardware configurations are really correct or not.

No, i screenshot from AliExpress.
I think the pro and plus are created by tanix as new models. One with antenna and one without. The plus is more expensive with antenna.

The problem with buying Tanix TX5 Max box in Singapore is that you will normally get the OEM version without Tanix logo. It is probably the same for other Tanix boxes. The quality varies. There are reports of short life span in Hardware Zone forum.

I think the new official TX5 Pro is a cut down version of TX5 Max, with 100M Ethernet and without Antenna. Official TX5 Max has gigabit Ethernet and antenna. There is no official TX5 Plus as far as I know.

The old TX5 Pro box is using S905X CPU.

From AliExpress, only tx5 plus has the tanix logo, oem are selling tx5 max without tanix logo.
Maybe tanix wanted to differentiate from oem by adding a plus now. It comes with attenna at the rear. But i think it has the same specs as tx5 max with better quality parts.

Below is review and YouTube:

If you look at the end of both reviews and click the Gearbest link, the so-called Tanix TX5 Plus is actually Tanix TX5 Max (a sold out item as per the website).

Anyway, all the official Tanix boxes are sold in Gearbest Tanix official store.

Is the Tanix TX5 Max sold on Lazada also an OEM version? As it doesn't have the Tanix logo on top, but it has a TX5 Max logo, which I don't see in the official box in the Gearbest store, which has a Tanix logo.

Correct, it is an OEM version if there is no Tanix logo. As far as I know stocks from Lazada, Shopee and Qoo10, and even Taobao, are OEM version.

The only place I know where you are sure to get official Tanix version is Gearbest.

If you want tx5 max, try to look for those tv box with Tanix printed on top, supposed to be better than tx5 printed on top by oem manufacturer.

My friend ask me to look for those with older Android version as some of the app may not work well with the newer version of Android.
Maybe some expert here can enlighten us.
