Good iMito MX2 clone – COZYSWAN MK809 II Android 4.1 Google TV Player w/ 1GB RAM / 8GB ROM / Wi-Fi / TF / Bluetooth - Black Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
It's very cheap and useful, you can play hd movies without lag from a NTFS or FAT32 hard drive or pendrive, with a powered USB hub you can connect everything you need, from hard drives to mouse and keyboard, with the app Droidmote you can even fully control it with your phone (root needed)
Cons:
-If you don't install a custom rom the output is nothing close to 1080p, it's just interpolated HD. -It doesn't come rooted, which i consider obligatory in these kind of devices. -The housing is made of cheap plastic, so be careful when connecting it. -A lot of people are having issues with the wifi antenna, I haven't... yet.
Other:
Once you find that it's a iMito MX2 clone, flashing a fully working rooted rom is quite easy, it gives you TRUE native 1080p resolution and an option to get more than the small 1gb partition for apps. just search "finless 1.7a iMito MX1/2" on the xda forums.
Bottomline:
If you know how and want to try custom roms and so, it is a very cheap gadget full of possibilities, otherwise you'll be stuck with a non rooted non hd at all angry birds player.
