VR box or similar models

Has anyone tried one of those virtual box models ?
I mean one of those cheap models sold in eBay or in Walmart.

If yes, how is your first hand review ?

I assume that the controller that comes with the vr model needs to be paired with the smartphone. Yes ?

Assuming that is the case, do you think the controller is able to pair with an out-dated android 4.1 jelly bean smartphone ?
