Hi and welcome to this guide.

As you all know there are (if not) thousands of different boxes to choose from. It can therefore get a little tricky to know what device to choose for that reason.
Depending on your budget, a box could cost you anywhere from 30$ up to 300$+.

Im guessing, you have all searched for boxes on AliExpress, Wish etc. for a cheap box because your favourite app got removed from your TV, or your just stuck with the shitty SS-IPTV?

Look no more because im going to convince you why you should choose this box that I recommend in 2020.
Observe that this is solely my perspective on a STB box and should only guide and educate you in what to look for when choosing your box.
Cut the crap.

The recommended SET-TOP-BOX in 2020

TVIP S-Box v.605

What are good shoes for if you don't know how to run? - SanoSat
Exactly!

Using the shoes right is what this box does. It makes the experience smooth, just what we like. Don't bother looking at the RAM or say
"I can get more RAM for a cheaper price on Ali"
Yes you can. But why would you need more RAM in the first place? It's either watching TV or anything else. You can't do all at the same time.

"bbbut i can game on it"
TBH... WHO THE FUCK GAMES ON A TV USING A SET-TOP-BOX??

Anyways, the specs?

Remember the feel when you purchased your first or last Playstation/Xbox? I almost get the same feeling by using this box.
Yes the packaging is abit old fashioned and mediocre but thats not the product in the end.

The price? Around 60-150$ depending on where you buy it. These boxes are designed and developed in Russia, Made in China and imported by Switzerland to EU.
You can still find them on Aliexpress for as low as 60$/piece. Trust me even thou this is my first post, you are not going to regret it.

Well, the tvip is ok, and a couple of years ago I would have recommended it too. Especially over the Mags..
But, since the Formulers or actually any decent spec box running Android TV with TiviMate, tvip would not be my 2020 choice.

I mean, yes you could discuss it. Althou running MAG on this is flawless in my opinion. Especially for the price its without doubt worth it.
