Zidoo® Android TV Box- X6 Pro Octa Core 2G/16G Dual Band WiFi 3D RK3368 OTA HDMI 2 : Excellent box, remote not so good.

I use this every day, very quick and responsive thanks to the octacore. Updates can occasionally mess everything up but fine if ou know how to deal with kodi and iptv.

Best performance and good support.

Amazing speed , stabilitity.

I brought this as a replacement for my old android box i would highly recommend this.

The wifi is rubbish though, you will need to connect via ethernet if streaming.

Android TV Box-Zidoo® X6 Pro Octa Core 2G/16G Dual Band WiFi 3D RK3368 OTA HDMI 2.0 4K*2K H.265 UHD 1000Mbps : Brilliant box very fast highly recommend.

This is a really good android tv box. I had done my research on many different types, generic and branded, and decided to go for this one as the company backed support looked really professional and had some pretty good feedback. The first thing i did, after connecting via wi-fi, is update the firmware to the latest version, which in turn updated the google play store and their skinned version of kodi to 16. 1 (this requires user setup for add-ons – so not fully loaded, but easy to do after some research), both of which are excellent. The updated play store now offers the proper true play store interface, not the skinned limited version they used to have, and games like minecraft run perfectly – all i need now is a decent games controller. I would highly advise purchasing a wireless mini keyboard, as the remote control provided experience is not the best. I have also been able to install my paid apps from the play store once i signed in – you’ll need to do this to install apps like youtube and netflix, etc. If you have a good wi-fi router (ac) then streaming 1080p movies are smooth and lag free, if not then i would advise purchase some network powerline adapters 500mbps or above (1000mbps or above for 4k). It also stays cool under use.

I did a lot of research before buying this box and followed up on suggestions from other people (including a review here) about alternative boxes of this type but came back to this one because of the features and price. I’m satisfied with the initial setup (i bought a ‘tecknet’ bluetooth keyboard and mouse to make things easier) and following another reviewers advice uninstalled kodi to download the latest version, installed the netflix and amazon prime apps and away to goquality is good the menu is bright and simple to use. My only problem is the mouse is very ‘laggy’ but it did work well briefly and i think it may be a setup issue either with the box or the mouse, i am still looking into it but it’s not enough of an issue for me to mark it down as it could be my fault. I have plugged it into the network with a cable so i’m not able to comment on the wireless capability. It has a couple of amusing typo’s on the english menus but as it is chinese and i know many english born and educated people who can’t spell so i’m not going to complainall in all it’s a dinky little box that does the job. And it has the funkiest name too.

Quality device with him very happy.

Nice and quality android tv box. . It does not sign in on google play store. But they issued new firmware and after update the problem has solved. And device is working finely now. Customer service responding very quick.

Does not support exfat external hdd format?. Great little box but it doesn’t support exfat external hdd format only fat32. Baffling considering fat32 won’t take files over 4gb and most high content video files are way more than that?.

Excellent fast box perfect for iptv. I purchased this box to use with full-hd-iptv, and the picture difference to my old box is simply amazing, it’s so crisp, and fast changing channels, i can’t recommend it enough, it may be more expensive than some boxes but it is totally worth it.

The default kodi app was old but just. The default kodi app was old but just remove it and add the latest one one and boom, you can watch all the freeview channels etc perfectly. Remote sucks but we use keyboard and mouse anyway.

  1. Very nice and stylish piece of kit (please update to software v1. 0. 11 to enhance the experience). Received this device more than a month ago and i have done quite some testing and tinkering. I must say it is a very nice and stylish piece of kit. The tv box looks very good in your living room and with 2gb ram and 16gb of memory you have enough power to run apps, 4k videos at 60fps. It also supports hdr and 10 bit color if your tv supports that. I had few slowdowns on the previous software v1. 8 as well as the remote control was disconnecting a couple of time an hour, which was resolved with the new software v1. 11 which i recommend you upgrade to if you haven’t as this will improve a lot of bugs and enhance your media experience and add 4k to youtube app.

    Sometimes when away from home the usb power. Sometimes when away from home the usb power differs and it keeps resetting itself. Never figured it out, at home no issues. Really fastcomes only with power lead so if you wish to power via usb you will need to buy extra cable.

    Sharper viewing, faster data delivery, less to no buffering, very pleased. . Yes we are pleased, buffering occurs less frequently, still get odd hang situation , but easier and quicker to rectify than earlier models and probably as much to do with local broadband or server delivery as the box itself. The 1080p programs are really coming out very well recently too, previously i could not see any notable different between that and the hd. We love it because we see all the programs before anyone else in superb quality.

    1. The zidoo x6 pro is a fantastic piece of kit. It is saving me well over £70 a month as we have now been able to get rid of virgin media yet still watch my favourite programmes with the likes of showbox, megabox and cinemabox. Since purchasing this box i have watched every single episode of every single season (13) of ncis and all have been top quality, mostly in hd too. Do yourself a favour, purchase this (also look out for a wireless mini keyboard) as the remote that comes with this can be a little fiddly and is near impossible to use if trying to search by name. Would i recommend the zidoo x6?. The team behind zidoo (according to various reviews) are very quick to update the software. Since buying the device, i have only had one update so cannot really comment on that.
