Nvidia Shield TV

Amazon Fire TV Stick

Does US$199 sound so bad for a set-top box? Worry not! Amazon Fire TV Stick is available for under US$50. However, you cannot stream Kodi videos in the best quality as Fire TV Stick does not support up to 4K Ultra HD. If you're good with 1080p HD at 60 frames per second, this should be a fine choice.

You can purchase Amazon Fire TV Stick for US$34.99 only.

Raspberry Pi 3

Raspberry Pi 3 is an attractive option for creating a small Kodi media centre; thanks to its compact size. Its New Out Of Box Software (NOOBS) supports two pre-built Kodi libraries LibreELEC and OSMC.

This device can handle 1080p videos with class, but it seems a little jerky when it comes to 4K videos. You can buy Raspberry Pi 3 for US$34 only.
