We always say that it’s not a must for a good product to cost too much. Say, you can pay a fortune and acquire a TV box that will do the same as another model that can be yours for a song. The differences will refer to the brand name, the number and version of interfaces, and the internals. But both kind of devices will provide a smooth performance and bring an outstanding video experience, including 4K support. So why overpay? The TV box we are going to talk about belongs to the second category. As the name suggests, the Tanix TX3 Mini L is the lightened version of the original model. Unlike the Tanix TX3 Max, many features have been weakened to make it more affordable. At this moment, the 1GB RAM+8GB version costs $24.29, while the 2GB RAM+16GB variant is available at $29.29.
The selling point of the Tanix TX3 Mini L is its processor. The TV box is packed with an Amlogic S905W quad-core chip that uses a Cortex A53 architecture and is accompanied by the Mali-450MP GPU. As we said, there are two variants with optional memory combinations. However, the storage can be expanded up to 128GB via the micro SD card slot. Due to this hardware and Android 7.1 out of the box, the Tanix TX3 Mini L is capable of providing 4K at 60 Hz and decode H.265, H.264, and VP9 up to 4K at 30fps. Isn’t this the main feature you look at when buying a new TV box?
As for interfaces, the Tanix TX3 Mini L carries an AV, DC Power Port, Ethernet, HDMI, SPDIF, TF card, and USB2.0. So we can write down our protagonist is a low-end TV box with a whole package of what you will need for daily use. It is so affordable that the Tanix TX3 Mini L won’t cost you anything to turn your regular TV into a smart TV.
