SCISHION V88 Rockchip RK3229 TV Box Sells for $19.99 (Promo)

Entry-level Android TV boxes are now already pretty cheap, and in the past we’ve seen deals in for around $25 and less, but with SCISHION V88, I think it’s the first time I see a new 4K Android TV box selling for less than $20 shipped.

Cheapest_4K_Android_TV_BoxSCISHION V88 specifications:

  • SoC – Rockchip RK3229 quad core ARM Cortex A7 processor @ 1.5 GHz with  ARM Mali-400MP2
  • System Memory – 1GB DDR3
  • Storage – 8GB eMMC flash + SD card slot up to 16GB
  • Video Output – HDMI 2.0 up to 4K2K @ 60 fps, and 3.5mm AV output (composite)
  • Audio Output – HDMI, AV, and coaxial S/PDIF
  • Connectivity – 10/100Mbps Ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi
  • USB – 4x USB 2.0 host ports
  • Power Supply – 5V/2A
  • Dimensions – 11.6 x 11.6 x 2.5 cm

The devices runs Android 5.1, and ships with a power adapter, a HDMI cable, an IR remote control, and a user’s manual. It also looks pretty similar to MX4 TV box minus Bluetooth support.

SCISHION_V88_TV_BoxBased on my experiences with MXQ 4K and Zidoo X1 II, devices based on Rockchip RK3229 are pretty good at playing 1080p and – to a lesser extent – H.264 and H.265 4K videos, but will feel sluggish for many other apps, although it’s quite possible the upgrade to Android 5.1 improved the situation (my two reviews are based on Android 4.4). For ARM Linux fan, this may not be the best hardware to play with Linux either, and you’d better stick with Amlogic S905 devices if you want to experiment.
