Ever seen the Nvidia Shield Android TV Box and got impressed just by its design language, but turned away looking at its price, well its kinda lot to spend on a TV box if you are considering to buy the Nvidia Shield, not that it has any shortcomings but if you don’t wanna bore a hole in your pocket then we have a better option for you, Enter the M9S Z8 Android TV Box which looks exactly like the Nvidia Shield and costs only $66.
The similarity between the two TV boxes is uncanny, but it stops there as Nvidia Shield is a premium product so naturally costs higher.

It has an Amlogic S905 processor onboard as opposed to the beast Tegra K1 in the Shield TV Box.
