Am I doing something wrong with this?

Hi all, so I bought a TV Box
http://www.ebay.com/itm/111155242479...84.m1497.l2649

And I am just completely disappointed. XBMC addons are unusable, everything lags. Playing 720p video in MX Player makes it slightly lag. My Nexus S from 2010 can play 720p just fine. I made sure I checked all the settings, lowered the output resolution to 720p at 50fps and it still lags. Even typing text lags. At this point, my TV Box is completely useless. Did I just buy a horrible box or am I missing something?

A question for all owners of various boxes - what software do you use? How did you set it up? Does it work?
Thanks!

Try a different power source, dont power the device through the TV USB. it seems RK devices underperform when they are underpowered.

The worst it can be is a fake device, still the freaktab community can help you identify the board and give you any rom that performs better.
