MXQ Pro TV box based on Amlogic S905 64-bit processor was launched at the end of last year for about $48. The price has come down after a few months, and GearBest is now selling NEXBOX MXQ Pro for as low as $28.99 (price will show when you add it to the cart), and if it goes back to $35, you should be able to use GBNB coupon to get it for $30.50 shipped.

I have not reviewed the device myself, and one person did a video review, where we can see the user interface is the same as the one found on Beelink MINI MX, and his overall conclusion is positive.
