The Rikomagic MK902 II is a TV box that lets you can hook up to your TV to run Android apps. You can use it to play games, stream content from Netflix, Hulu Plus, or YouTube, or just generally turn your TV into a big Android phone.

Rikomagic sent me a demo unit to test, and now that I’ve finished reviewing the MK902 II it’s time for a giveaway.

The MK902 II has a Rockchip RK3288 ARM Cortex-A17 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. It’s one of the fastest TV boxes I’ve tested, although it’s not quite as fast as some newer Android phones and tablets.

The user experience isn’t quite as TV-friendly as what you’d get with a Roku, Amazon Fire TV, or Google Nexus Player. But if you don’t mind a sometimes clunky user interface and running apps designed for phones on a TV, this $127 box can be much more versatile than those devices.

In addition to WiFi, Bluetooth, and an HDMI port, the MK902 II has 4 USB ports which you can use to connect a keyboard, mouse, gamepad, or storage, among other things. It also features full access to the Google Play Store, which gives you access to hundreds of thousands of apps.

Overall, if you’re looking for an easy-to-use TV box, a cheaper, less powerful device like an Amazon Fire TV Stick might be a better solution. But if you’re looking to turn your TV into a full-fledged Android machine, the MK902 II is a pretty good option… and if you’re the tinkering sort, you might even be able to convince it to run Ubuntu or another GNU/Linux operating system.

Anyway, the price doesn’t matter if you can get one for free. So here’s how to enter for a chance to win a slightly used MK902 II:

  1. Yes please! I’ve never won a giveaway or anything but I’ll be damned if I don’t try. Ubuntu on this little box sounds wonderful and will keep my tinkering mind busy. Pick me! Happy Holidays and a wonderful New Year to all. πŸ™‚

  2. It can replace a large power hungry desktop computer and can be used for just about anything.

  3. These boxes are really getting to be pretty powerful. I’ve got an old tronsmart hdmi stick that still runs pretty well, but I’m sure this box would blow it away.

  4. This would be a fun toy to try out a few Linux builds. Or just to hook up and play stuff like Clash of Clans!! One never knows…

  5. This sounds like a great little box for the price, I’d love to win one!

  7. I’ve never won a giveaway. I doubt this one will be any different.

  8. this would be great in my house, thanks again for another awesome giveaway

  9. Enter me in for a chance to win. I would like to see how this performs in a business conference room.

  10. My wife would love this. Thank you for this opportunity! Cheers and Happy Holidaze!

  11. This would be perfect since my minix neo x-7 just died and I can’t afford to replace it right now.

  12. Wondering how easy it would be to hang a USB drive or two off this and serve media out to the rest of the house? Anyway, count me in

  13. Android platform for watching TV is awesome. They have some really killer apps out there that let you watch pretty much anything. Even though you can run XBMC on Android it still is not as nice as using apks. For some of the best apks for TV and movies check out TeaTV.blogspot.com for direct download links.

  14. Would love to see what this box is all about. Thank you for the review.

  15. Lots of potential. A couple of cool hacks come to mind that i would love to try.

  16. I always wanted to buy Android TV box but not maybe I could win it πŸ™‚ Thanks fot the opportunity!

  17. This would be a great addition to our home/work network.

  18. Looks like fun! I’ve always had a WDTV, but I’ve recently tried out a friend’s older Logitech Revue and it’s a neat little critter. I love my WD, since it plays any file I throw at it, but an Android based box would have come cool uses.

  19. I had a MK901 stick, it was great until it melted from being plugged in all of the time, It would be nice to try the box version.

  20. I’d like to test it with Kodi and some 32GB HD Bluray rips to see how well it does.

  21. How many boxes can you plug into your TV? Just this one is all I need.

  22. I previously owned a Rikomagic Android box I’d read about on Liliputing. I set it up for my senior citizen mother on her HD TV’s HDMI input. It worked, so things can only be better 2 years later with more GHz, RAM, etc. Right?

  23. Need me a way to bring android and Linux to my Tv – thanks Liliputing

  24. Can one load a standard Linux distro onto it? Fingers crossed – JR

  25. I love these devices. Thanks for all your work. The reviews really help.

  26. It seems cool and all, but when will they release a dual boot version with Linux Mint and HW acceleration?

  27. Bluetooth support would be an improvement over my Android stick – this thing has “retro gaming console for my upcoming theater room” written all over it. πŸ™‚

  28. This is one of those times where I actually need a little android powered TV box…

  29. “This contest is open to residents of the continental United States”

    pft… =(

  30. It’s time to upgrade my box. I’d love a chance to tinker with this one!

  31. I always try to win these things but i am never lucky enough! I am hoping my luck somehow changes!

  32. I can’t believe how small all these devices are getting. Thanks for the site, love it. In for the contest…good luck all!

  33. My last working USB port on my iMito MX1 is about to conk out. Would love something to replace it.

  34. I love these types of devices. I currently have an Amazon FireTV Stick which replaced my old Vizio Co-Star.

  35. Do I need another TV box… probably not, but I always need new toys πŸ™‚
