There are plenty of AliExpress boxes without the reference to cracked windows.

You wouldn't want windows on it anyway, OpenELEC is by far the best solution.

I have had no problems with the quality of the one I bought. I don't know why you even raise the issue, remember your Apple Mac is probably made in China.

Also you can buy them locally.
