Today we’re gonna check one of the affordable products for your entertainment room.
Minimalism is the exact word for its design, the MiBox construction remind me a pebble, those rocks sculpted by the water, by nature, the kind that transmit peace when look at it in a river, then the sound of stream water comes to my mind. Almost share the same size, as a pebble, this piece of tech doesn’t fill your hand and feels solid and well made.
In the box you will find all necessary to transform your old flat tv in a new Smart Entertaining System; first you’ll notice is the Mi Box, owner and manual in english (this is the international version), bluetooth remote control, ac adapter and HDMI cable (satisfy the HDMI 2.0 standard in order to be able to transmit 4K media bandwidth required).
Following minimalism design all the ports are in the back; you will find (2.0) wich can be used to connect an external hard disc drive, USB memory stick, input devices like mouse or keyboard or a USB HUB. HDMI (2.0 compliant for 4K media), AV port if you want to connect this device to an old square TV and power intake. With all this ports and connections every need it is cover.
The MiBox is powered by a quad-core cortex-A53 processor runnig at 1.5ghz, Mali-400MP2 GPU running at 750mhz, 2GB RAM and 8GB ROM for internal storage. With this cocktail it manages to run every basic task you trow it, like apps for social media as, facebook, twitter, instagram, check mails, watch videos from streaming sources like youtube, Sulu, Neflix ans more without issues. With Wi-Fi AC you’re assure 4K media will run smooth. The bluetooth remote control have a microphone so you can command task like “Open Netflix”.
Running on Android TV 6.0, the Xiaomi Mi Box Android TV provides the best money-youget ratio in media streamer box this year. The user interface was smooth and fast, and most apps worked well. Setup was easy, and since it has a built-in IR receiver, you can use the MiRemote APP on your Xiaomi Phones. Its small size it’s nice, my entertainment system is mostly hidden from view, and really the wires are the worst part. The Mi Box’s user experience is just snappier and smoother, even compared to the behemoth that is the Xbox One (although that’s probably more due to the overwhelmingly busy UI of the Xbox One). Made for streaming media, it actually manages to reproduce and access all the media you put trough its usb port. 4K @60fps videos are reproduced with out issues.
the Xiaomi Mi Box is a device I can recommend, it gets the job done well, especially for only $54.99. You can buy the Mi Box at Tomtop and get that price using this coupon code: HTYMBOX22 for the flash sale.
