Zidoo X9 Review

Uniqueness is not something you often see in many of these android players. Having been using these boxes for so long, when you see something different,  it piques your interest. The Zidoo x9 does this on a few fronts. It’s the first. Device I’ve used that runs on an M star processor,  it has dual wifi antennas,  an LED panel and HDMI In. But do these unique features make it amazing?

MK808B Plus Review

Android TV boxes keep evolving and it is amazing what just 12 months can change. With original MK808B not being as fast as I wanted, I decided to invest in the new MK808B Plus from Geekbuying. The MK808B Plus is a quad-core Android mini PC powered by an Amlogic M805 chipset with quad-core Mali-450 graphics and runs Android KitKat 4.4.2. The inclusion of H.265 hardware decoding and quad-core CPU/GPU crammed into the same tiny enclosure of the original MK808B for only $50 was pretty irresistible. Couple that with DNLA, Miracast, built-in wifi and Bluetooth 4.0 and you have a unit capable of playing almost anything you throw at it.
