START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated Dec 2020)
After weigh'n a lot of options form $30.00 Android 6.0 boxes with S905/S905x chips, to $600.00 Intel i5 7th gen Nuc's, reading all the "stay away" post about Android, I finally decided and pulled the trigger today on the box that keeps popping to the top as a reliable work horse the Minix Neo U1 with A2 Lite remote, shipped from a US re-seller with US power Supply.and free shipping.
I promptly followed up with an order for a 16g Samsung Evo... to be used for other OS's.

There are post on a couple OS sites with instuctions to get the U1 running on OS's that support Krypton, although few post with actual indorsements saying it's supported.

One of the negatives was on the Minix site saying it would not be getting an Android 6.0 upgrade, but I'll happily jump to another OS if needed.

Waiting game now according to the site estimated delivery by 5/4.

Thanks to all who have replied to my many questions, especially wrxtasy and your many post....I tend to over analyze stuff like this.
