Do the eBay £4-£5/ethernet power adaptors work ok ?

Just as a follow up I ordered the q-box and ran it hard wired setup on the same server as I have on my Fire TV 4k (wireless) and using stbemu pro 1.1.14 on both.
Settings are the same on both my conclusion was:

The q-box ain't that bad. I struggled with Players and settings but overall for about £26 they do a job. The latest 1.1.14 does help with audio on Exo.

When I examined the actual playback on both the fire 4k plays that ever so slightly smoother, crisper edge. I did try all 3 players including MPV player and reduced equality for speed and other settings.
if I were to choose I'd stick with the fire 4k but for 1/2 the price it does a job and not too bad

For £26 that looks a decent box.
