Firestick or Roku? Amazon or Lazada?

Recommended Posts

I don't have any experience with either device, they both seem to have their advantages. If bought from Amazon they work out at around $40-50 delivered, bought from Lazada about $30-40 more, but no worries about customs or getting "lost" in the post. Any owners who have experience with both?

Which Amazon store website did you use?

No problems with Thai Customs?

 

I don't ever want to use Lazada again, but need to find a good online shopping alternative.

In the past 2 years I have purchased 4 Android TV Boxes with no issues. Most were delivered within 7-10 days by UPS.

Amazon has an agreement with Thai Customs to collect all fees in advance. The price you pay is a guaranteed delivered price.

Example:

If you buy the $45.00 Roku you will pay the following.

Price:

$44.99 + $18.08 Shipping & Import Fees Deposit to Thailand

You will pay no additional charges.

Price        $23.99
AmazonGlobal Shipping    +    $8.98
Estimated Import Fees Deposit    +    $0.00

Good choice on website but I hope that the Roku does what you need it to do. VPN on device etc.

I paid $27 for the Roku and $13 postage. That postage is calculated automatically, and the price for the Roku was the cheapest I could find for new, used were $23.99.
