Guess that could be liable to customs based on the HK warehouse?

The newer model, the 4th version, seems cheaper at first glance...

Are there any sites that ship these from within the EU to avoid customs. Have one for the last year. Love it. Want another one.

I just bought one on AliExpress for €50 but got stung €21 custom's and An Post fee so maybe factor that into the overall price.

Maybe ask seller to ship without box better chance of getting thru customs.

Picked up one of these last night it's still pending..
Haven't had an android box in a few years, last one was poor so hopefully this is as good as the reviews are!

It really is good. Connects no bother to my NAS and streams without issues.

i always buy from a vendor with an EU warehouse - i know its a couple of quid more, but no customs and easier returns, and EU rules apply.

I do see some of the sellers offer 'customs insurance' where for a couple of quid up front you are covered if you get stung. Look out for that next time.

Gearbest supposedly cover any customs when you select priority line shipping.
I've certainly never been hit by customs when selecting it...

€3.44 delivery for this Mi box.

Thanks OP. I ordered one and got the sale price just in time. I didn't think and just assumed it has a LAN connection. It doesn't....will need to get one of these :
