Giveaway Week – Jynxbox M1V2 Pure Linux XBMC

June 16th, 2014

When Theaterinabox sent me a Jynxbox M1V2 for review, I was a little surprised to actually receive two. The reason was that I got one for review, one for giveaway. But since I need to drive to the post office anyway, I’ll just giveaway both, and actually start a giveaway week giving 8 different boxes to my readers starting today with the two Jynxbox M1V2, then one a day until Sunday.

Let’s talk about the device a bit more. Jynxbox M1V2 is one of the few Linux based XBMC available on the market. It’s based on Amlogic AML8726-M3 Cortex A9 processor, with 1GB RAM and 2GB flash, with several XBMC add-ons pre-installed. You can read my review to get the detailed specs, and pictures. The conclusion of my testing was that the user interface was pretty smooth considering the low end processor, Wi-Fi was excellent, and I was pleasantly surprised when I realized it could handle Blu-ray ISOs. However, codec support could have been better, and the user interface is sometimes sluggish while playing videos.

There are two ways to participate in the giveaway, and you can participate in both.

  1. If you have a Facebook account, you can like theatherinabox via the RaffleCopter giveaway
    a Rafflecopter giveaway
  2. Simply leave a comment below

Other rules are as follows:

  • You can enter both contests, or only one.
  • Only one entry per contest. I will filter out entries with the same IP and/or email address.
  • Contests are open for 48 hours starting at 10am (Bangkok time). Comments will be closed after 48 hours.
  • Winners will be selected with random.org
  • I’ll contact the winners by email or Facebook, and I’ll expect an answer within 24 hours, or I’ll pick another one.
  • Shipping
    • Free for winners with a shipping address in Thailand
    • Flat fee of $17 for the rest of the world payable via Paypal within 48 hours once the contest is complete, or I’ll pick another winner.
  • I’ll post all 8 prizes at the same time, so around the 25th of June, using Airmail (Small Packet) with tracking.

Good luck!

In case you don’t win one, but would still like to get one, you can purchase Jynxbox M1V2 Pure Linux XBMC via Theaterinabox.tv for $80, Amazon store for $89.99, and Aliexpress for $99.99.

    Would love to try this out. Have not tried any linux boxes out, but as a student, can’t afford any at the moment. So this would be something cool to play with over my university break.

    So the contest is over and we have two winners:
    * Facebook contest: Giosuè [Update: The first Facebook winner did not reply, so I did a redraw, and Richard M. won Jynxbox M1V2]
    * Comment contest: We had 84 comments, and random.org selected comment #76, Congratulations Pavlos.

    Both have been contacted by email.
