Meet Xtreamer mxV line, 3 new mini PC's with Amlogic S905
Xtreamer silently launched an entire Amlogic S905 lineup, with 3 products with attractive price tags (ranging from 39 to 59 Euros) and featuring a DVB-T2 tuner (mxV Plus model) and even DVB-T2/S2 combo (mxV Pro model).
Xtreamer is banking on the fact that the price is comparable with what you would get if you buy a no-name MiniPC with the same SoC, but you'll get instead a device with better-quality components and that could be subject to further firmware updates, which you won't likely get from brand-less devices.
And they might be on to something: at €39 with free shipping (for the mxV for no tuners) you get a dual-boot device (OpenElec and Android) with a strong casing and with very few apps preinstalled (and nothing in Chinese).
