Tronsmart Orion R68 TV Box Discounted to $39? Nope.

Tronsmart Orion R68 is an octa-core Android TV box powered by Rockchip RK3368 processor with 2GB RAM, and 16GB internal storage. I actually received a sample a a few months ago, but I have not reviewed it yet as I’ve been waiting for a firmware upgrade to fix some of the issues I had in Beelink i68, but it has yet to come. Nevertheless, the device which normally sells for $75 on GeekBuying, is now sold for $39 shipped on Aliexpress in what looks like am amazingly good deal reported by


At first, I was about to write a post about this excellent deal, especially as I saw the link indicated 114 orders, but then on the top left corner, I noticed “Hot CCTV” seller had no feedback score and the store opened on December 9, 2015. It’s quite possible a store will do a promotion to gain attention, but since TV boxes margin are pretty low, it’s pretty sure Orion R68 would be selling at a loss here, unless it was stolen goods, or some packages that fell from the truck…

However, after checking their other products, it’s now clear that something is really odd or dodgy, as MINIX NEO X8-H Plus with NEO A2 Lite is also selling for $52.99.

MINIX_NEO-X8-H_Plus_NEO_A2_LiteKnowing MINIX stricts resellers policy, and a normal price closer to $160 for this bundle, you can be sure that any items bought from “Hot CCTV” seller will never ship. Maybe they got their exchange rate conversion wrong, or somehow expected some people to forget to ask for a refund once it becomes clear nobody will receive their device in one or two months. Better save your time and avoid this seller.

  1. Mobase is another reseller on Ali. If this retailer stole other stores images (even didn’t Photoshop), it probably a scam.

  2. People only have themselves to blame by buying these fake boxes.
    I see lots of Spanish people bought boxes there after the article on

    Always check previous customer feedback.
    On this store people only bought recently and there is no previous customer feedback history.
    The store has no stars, opened recently, no contact information eg. physical address, run by a single person(how can he handle all the work) and prices too good to be true. Also no website to check physical address or products and ripping off other companies logos and pasting their information.
    Also ships in 60 days, then PayPal protection is long over and he gets his money. If you report a fake Aliexpress might give a discount but a crap box could be shipped and you are the one still losing out.

  3. Be careful, this is scam seller on aliexpress. you won’t get the device, and the orion r68 won’t sell like this price. shame on that seller.
