DUH......nowdays? Amconics have been chopping carrot heads since dont know when. Back when i got my 1st minix x5 around 5 years ago, i remembered comparing prices and amconics was selling for at least $100+ more compared to other shops or online sources. How do you think they went from 1 small shop to double the retail space now at sim lim? Every IT fair or trade fair still have goondus willingly let them chop.....

Amconics was selling the Neo U9-H at $299 on Friday, at the Suntec IT pasar malam. But previous IT pasar malam, they were selling at closer to $219, with 3 years one to one exchange warranty.

This Minix Neo U9H was also selling at $299 during March show. If you buy just the box without the IPTV, then it is just $199. I didn't commit in March as I wasn't very sure. It took me 6 months from then to do some research on Android TV boxes before I decide to try on Minix yesterday.

The reason I'm willing to pay for it is presumably the after-sales support given by Amconics. Unless Amconics close shop, then I will LLST. There are many Android boxes in the market, some are so cheap that I don't even want to buy them.

Paying $299 is an expensive buy for me, but I will dump away my $50 monthly subscription from Starhub soon to offset the cost in long term.

My family now is enjoying the box with so many channels on the IPTV.

Becuz of carrot heads like you thats why unscrupulous sellers like amconics and red bean are thriving. Better pray your box or iptv app dont suddenly stop functioning because good luck going back to amconics for help when problem arises.

Bro, to each his own. Like what you mentioned, my box screw up I still can go back to Amconics to bang table. Better than those buy from online sellers that don't even have any table to bang. I'm enjoying the IPTV so far.

Is this IPTV you talking about something specific to Amconics ? Or from Playstore ?

iPTV is just live channels app which bundle with minix.. although $299 is quite ex consider other brands.. iptv which they bundle comes with 4 yrs subscription.. not 3 yrs as they mentioned.. so after calculations should be reasonable.. normally live channel subscription around 80-100 per yr..
And u can change the subscription to ur new box if u decide to upgrade minix over the yrs

If buy Minix from other online sellers, is the IPTV not included ?

The reason why I hesitated on Minix is this key consideration : Amconics is the one & only exclusive distributor, which sort of making the device here a monopoly, no longer a free market. So a user's options may be limited should issues arise later. Like the company decided to shut down for good. But overall, I guess they are doing a better job than other brands of Android box , with the exception of AC Ryan's Veolo 4K which also seems like quite a good deal at below $200 price level.
