    cnxsoft, it would be great if you review KIII Pro by VideoStrong or AceMax (is it the same company?), which currently is the only one in the market who offers an android box with S912 and DVB-T2.

    http://www.videostrong.com/productshow.asp?id=924&sid=248

    Notice that there is also a version with a similar name that has dual WiFi external antennas, but no tuner.
    I don’t understand why they write DVB at the headline and then don’t write it in the specs (but the name of the product remains the same…).

    I have also looked in VideoStrong Alibaba store, and seen so many similar offers – so I don’t understand why do they have different offers for the same thing… Maybe I just don’t understand Alibaba…
    (One difference is that AceMax is at aliexpress).

    And there is a huge price difference between various offers – 85$ vs 149$ for one unit… Are the high prices just a scam?

    cnx-soft: from you I just ask to review the actual performance of the unit.

    @Ron
    VideoStrong contacted me about that, so maybe I’ll get a KIII Pro sample.
    AceMax is a customer of VideoStrong.

    8GB? That’s hard to believe. 8Gb, maybe.

    For what it’s worth, RAM shown on the picture is a Nanya 256T32 device = 256M x 32 = 8Gb.
