START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated June 2020)

So either the RPi3 or these will do the job poperly:

AMLogic S905(x) - LibreELEC / OSMC - Kodi Krypton - 4K Options

The AML S905's will give you high quality Advanced Motion Adaptive hardware deinterlacing and be faster than an RPi3 especially if LibreELEC is flashed to fast eMMC storage.

Thank you! Looks like the S905/S905x is the better choice, but I have a few questions (as the Vero/Wetek/Odroid/Minix are out of my price range).....

Are the 'option e' boxes even worth buying, or would a RPi3 be better than them?
Are all cheap, sub €50 ('option e' in that post) S905/S905x boxes "the same" in terms of performance (ignore build quality etc) or are there certain ones that should be avoided and others that are good?
Is an S905 better/worse than an S905x, or are they as good as each other in practice?
