Review of the MXQ Pro Android Box
Before I give a comprehensive Review of the MXQ Pro android box. I just want to share a short history how these Android boxes came into being. Our TV experience have gotten real good over the past couple of years, thanks to the improvement in technology. Chief among the them,
faster internet speeds, moving from Dial Up to DSL to Cable
broadband and now Fiber to home.
This allows allows greater efficiency in
delivering media over the internet. In addition to that, the Operating
systems like Android OS gave rise to the development of
robust application( or Apps). Put all that together and you can fit
all that technology in a small little box.
While there are so many boxes on the market to confuse you. Prices
ranges from as high as $199 (such as the Nvidia Shield) to a low of
$25. while I do like the experience that the Rokus and the Fire tv
gives, what if I can get an equipment at those same price points as
the above mentioned devices and which also gives me the option of
personalizing my TV experience. This is where a device like the MXQ
Pro comes in.
The Fully Loaded MXQ Pro
Specs: 8GB internal memory, Android 7.1, USB and SD card port
Pros: excellent 4k video quality, easy to use and attractive menu display
Cons: no Bluetooth Connectivity
The MXQ Pro is one of the most popular Android tv boxes on the
market. It is reasonably priced at around $38 on both Ebay and
Amazon. The latest version is 4K ready and come fully loaded with a
lot of Apps that allows you to watch free TV from all over the world and
outside of North America.
With Apps like FilmOn, you are able to watch live TV channels with or
without a subscription. According to which market you are in, it can
give you over 200 Channels and another 300 paid subscription channels
from all over the world and also Kodi, an open source media player that
allows you to play your movies or music.
With the aid of add-ons, you can also view free or paid streams. Plex which allows you to have
access to your video library when your on the go, Crackle which is a
movie app from Sony that lets you watch free content from the Sony
movie catalogue and also original series. In addition to that , there
is also the usual Netflix and YouTube and any other app you want to
download from the Google Play store.
It is also 4K so as long as you have a 4K TV, you will be able to experience all those 4k Netflix Streams, it has a built in WiFi. However, I do prefer to use the Ethernet port for a better streaming experience. the Main reason why I do have a preference for these android boxes is the ability to to add more storage. the MXQ Pro comes with SD card slot and four USB slot for external storage.
