PROBOX 2 Air Plus: Very Fast Android TV-Box! [Review]

The all new PROBOX 2 Air Plus is as fast as it says on the site.

After testing for a couple of days, it runs smoothly and video quality is very nice. The PROBOX 2 Air Plus has GB DDR4 RAM, 32GB eMMC flash memory and up to 1Gbps Ethernet. It can even show up to 4K video with the all-new 10-bit video and HDR. A lot of weird words, I know, but it just means it’s a good device.

I had some issues during the first few hours of use with the device. Wifi was not connecting, so I couldn’t download Asphalt. I couldn’t get the Remote + to work like I wanted it to and I didn’t really know what I could do with the PROBOX in general.

After some browsing (as you do), I figured out how to configure KODI, which is pre-installed, and was able to stream tv/movies. The remote worked very well after getting used to it and even the wifi started working after the power on and off trick ;).

The Remote+ looks very nice with its red and black colours and feels more “premium” than the normal remote. You can use it for gaming, horizontal or vertical. It has the all-known A-B-C-D button layout on the bottom. You can switch between the arrow keys to navigate or the infrared pointer, which is waaaay cooler and easier in my opinion.

Other things to mention: you can upgrade the internal storage with a microSD card. It already has 32 GB internal, which is nice, and you can stream your phone to the PROBOX.

 

PROS:

* It works really fast

* It has a beautiful design

* The remote is very good when you are used to it

* KODI pre-installed

 

CONS:

* You have to configure KODI yourself (legal notice)

* No batteries for the remote

* Learning curve

 

PRICE:

$129,99

Simon loves gadgets even more than he loves chocolate, and he’s from Belgium… How weird.
