In the last few months, there has been very little innovation or novelty in the Android set-top box and mini PC space, and the latest Ugood Android set-top boxes are yet other devices based on Rockchip RK3188 processor with 1 to 2GB RAM, and 8GB flash, as well as Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity, and a 5MP camera. They only differ from the competition because of their casings.
Both devices mostly share the same specifications:
- SoC – Rockchip RK3188 quad core Cortex A9 @ 1.6Ghz with Mali-400MP4 GPU @ 500MHz?
- System Memory – 1GB DDR3 for UG320, 2GB DDR3 for UG310
- Storage – 8GB flash + microSD card slot (Up to 32 GB)
- Video Output – HDMI and AV outputs
- Audio Output – HDMI, optical SPDIF, and AV (CVBS).
- Connectivity – Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and 10/100M Ethernet. Bluetooth 3.0 is available in UG320 only.
- UG310 – 2x USB 2.0 host ports
- UG320 – 3x USB 2.0 host ports
- Camera – 5MP camera
- Power Supply – 5V/2A
Both devices run Android 4.2. UG320 comes with a powered adapter, and HDMI and AV cables. UG310 adds a standard IR remote control to the list of accessories.
UG310 is the type of device that can be placed on top of the TV, and UG320 is a small media player than can be placed horizontal, or vertically thanks to a base.
UG320 can be purchased for $90.59 on GeekBuying, but you can also find it for about $100 on Aliexpress. UG310 can be found for $107.99 on Dealsprime without remote, and $127.99 with a 2.4GHz remote, and starts at $119 on Aliexpress with a “Body feeling remote control” :). There’s also a model called GK528 that looks similar.
You can also visit UG310 and UG320 pages on the manufacturer website (Ugoos).
Thanks to Robert for the tip.

Looks like UG320 is a great desktop PC platform. I curious if Linux can run on it without problems.
For Linux on ARM device it rarely works out of the box, having said that since Linux seems to work relatively well on some other RK3188 devices, there may not be that much work to have a working Linux system on UG320.
UG310 is also called Ideastar B350 on DealExtreme ($119 with air mouse)
UG320 for around 82$:
That’s much cheaper. I suppose they don’t include the remote (and there’s no bluetooth). Has anybody used exwdeal before? It seems to be a new website.
firmware cwm for ug310 please
