S905W Boxes - Any good?

So are these budget processors any good?

And has anybody got CE to run on W95 boxes? If so which version and device tree did you use?

S905w is an older chip, you may be much happier with a device with the newer s905x3 soc. Price wise the s905x3 based devices are not that much more expensive, and do tend to be a good upgrade over the s905w based devices.

It’s OK for 1080P, but not for 4K. It can do it, but it has some hardware limitations.
It’s considerably slower than anything else out there, even from the same generation, such as the S905X.
These also use an old chip, which currently uses the old 3.14 kernel, which is not supported by Amlogic, and no longer gets any updates from them, and we don’t have much to improve with this kernel either.
As already mentioned above, the price difference isn’t big, you’ll be in a much better spot if you get a newer device based on a S905X3.
