Tronfy X2 is a budget TV box with full Kodi support


If you’re looking to build an HTPC on the cheap, there are lots of options out there. However, many lack the basic software functionality to make a properly functioning home theater PC.

The new Tronfy X2 looks like a decent TV box that could take up the job for you. The Tronfy X2 features a quad-core CPU and full Kodi support, and is in a way built to be turned into an HTPC. The device costs a mere US$46 shipped and supports 4K as well as 1080p output.

Other specifications of this TV box include 1GB of RAM, 8GB of ROM, h.265 support, and 2.4GHz b/g/n WiFi. You’ll most certainly have to either extend storage or feed it via your NAS, but then you have to do that with most TV boxes anyway.

A more powerful alternative to the X2 is the Tronfy MX4, which retails at over double the price at US$110. But as you would expect, the MX4 is more powerful with its 2.0GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of ROM. This one too features 4K/1080p support, the difference is mainly in the CPU and storage/memory.

    There is a 5$ chip coming out soon, the Allwinner h64. It will definitely blow away what cheap players exist now.

    If you want something higher priced the Odroid Xu4 just came out, two usb 3.0 ports.

      This H64 is very interesting. Looking forward to see devices based on it.

    I prefer tronfy smart mx2, 1 GB RAM is enough to watch movies, and it it cheap in the current market.
