Tronsmart is adding three new devices to the long list of Amlogic S905 TV boxes on the market with:

There’s no USB 3.0, nor PCIe interface on Amlogic S905 so SATA has probably been implemented with a USB 2.0 to SATA bridge, and performance should be equivalent to what you’d get with an external USB hard drive connected to a USB 2.0 port.

Tronsmart Vega S95 Telos normally sells for $99.99 including shipping, but you can get a $10 discount for any Vega S95 model by leaving a comment on their promotion page. The two other models, Vega S95 Pro and Vega S95 Meta, sell for $59.99 and $79.99 respectively, before the $10 coupon is applied.
