START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated January 2020)
Wrxtasy or anyone willing to help,
I have read through the thread over and over, just unsure what box to get. I would like a box that can do 4k 10bit HEVC and access to Amazon Prime. I usually just play movies and shows stored on a server, but I need a box that I can hide behind the TV. I am having problems deciding because the Shield seems a little expensive, the Amazon Fire TV2 may not do what I need, and other boxes recommended seem to be outside the US.
I like the option of directly booting into KODI. (Linux)

I have looked at
NVIDIA Shield – $199

FireTV2- $90

ODROID C2- $70 + Case $10 + Power $10 + MicroSD $10 = $100

WeTEK Play 2– $129.90

VERA 4k - NO US OPTION?

Any help would be much appreciated.
