High quality device at a low price. High quality device at a low price. Does audio pass through very well. Does a great job of upscaling video. Great upgrade on my minix x8h plus.

Good hardware, actually software not.

0a for hdr meta data but it is just hdmi 2. 0, not hdr compatible as advertised, so have returned it. I used the chess hdr demo from the net to test the hdr signal, and a hdmi 2. When a hdr signal is received on a hdr tv the backlight and contrast go to max. This is how to test if the media box is actually 2. Could be my tv (panasonic 58dx902b) but it is hdr and i have played the chess sample which was brill, through the tv’s usb.

Android TV Box Zidoo X9S Android 6.0 OpenWRT(NAS) Quad Core 2G/16G Dual Band WIFI 1000Mbps LAN HDR USB3.0 HDMI IN Recoder SATA 3.0 : Fantastic addition to my bedroom tv. I have over 2000 hours of movies on my home server so that in conjunction with the added services of kodi and android operating system it’s a total win. Wifi connectivity is strong and dont seem to have any buffering issues when it comes to streaming content from the livingroom to the bedroom. The remote is easy to use but i strongly suggest that you get a bluetooth keyboard/mouse that will allow you to type and control the box easier.

Tested a lot of android boxes and been comparing their performances and i say im impressed with zidoox9s. Very happy with my purchasedproduct arrived on time. Very good packaging from amazon. The zidoo box itself is beautiful and sturdy. It secures the android box really well. The android box itself is made of aluminum and looks class and beautifully designed that blends well with the entertainment system. Very good specs with a very fast quad core rtd1295 processor combined with mali-t820 gpu. Some features are very exclusive that really worth your money. So easy for beginners bcoz of set up wizard.

This is the best multimedia player i have ever owned. (it replaces my very good mede8er med1000x3d. ) but this plays everything i thrown at it, especially 4k and 3d blu ray iso 1080p. Even my nvidia shield tv struggles with some of my files, but the zidoo x9s plays them flawlessly. Excellent software support through firmware updates. It does output hdr, you have to remember that you need to set your tv’s hdmi inputs to accept it.

This is a fantastic tv box and came with apps preinstalled and works very well. Beside, this tv box also able to customize it easily, and i found other boxes i used is more difficult.

High quality and powerful device. Got this as a gift from wife and its very good upgrade to my zoomtak s812. Very good chipset,its fast and very good quality of picture. Its good looking too with 2 antennas. Im amazed about its aluminium case as its true that its fingerprint proof. There’s a lot more features of the box i need to configure. I will enjoy my tv shows and try my fav android games first and might do more reviews about this. So far i’m already impressed.

Very good video playback and handles 4k really well. Im connected via wifi and have very good reception from my bedroom unlike my old android box. Got full wifi signal although it’s distant from our router. This zidoo x9s is really fast and solved my buffering issues. So far no crashes and the zdmc is stable. I have no issues playing asphalt 8 and will try more games. Its unique features like nas, hdmi in for recording and home theatre are really exciting and i will be testing soon. 
i did have an issue with the power adaptor supplied but got a reply from the seller straight away and sorted my problem quickly.

Brilliant android box with so many features. Works well with good performance but hardware to price ratio isn’t overall great. . This android is running android 6. 1 which brings many improvements over older versions of android, it also brings new features, android 6. 1 has performance improvements which help to the most out of the hardware by being more lightweight than previous versions of android, so a android box running android 5. 1 with the same hardware as this android box will not perform as well. Some of the new features which android 6. 1 includes is allowing you to merge external storage as system storage which means you can increase the systems storage and this will let you install apps along with games on your system storage. Unlike most android boxes which have amlogic cpu’s this android box has a realtek cpu which is running at 1. 5ghz, the main difference between amlogic cpu’s and the realtek cpu, is that the realtek cpu allows hdmi-in recording which is why you can record hdmi inputs with this android box and the realtek cpu is also usb 3. 0 compatible which most other android boxes missthis android box scored fairly high in the benchmark tests which i carried out, the score it received is 35144, the price to performance ratio isn’t verbally brilliant since android boxes half the price have scored higher than this android box but the performance is still good, you will easily be able to play apps which are very demanding on the hardware along with 3d games which are very resource heavy like gta. The user interface is a custom made ui unlike most other android boxes which use poorly made generic ones, i wouldn’t say the ui on this android box is the best made ui which i have came across but it’s fairly good, its sleek, modern and very responsive but you can tell it’s been slightly rushed because they’ve forgotten to remove the camera app from the app drawthe android box allows you to mirror your phone onto the screen, it has two media players, one for playing local files or files from your network storage devices and kodi 16.

Finally, a box with built-in perfection. Is a high quality goods with latest zdmc upgrading, and differ from the other kodi. This box did optimization effort based on kodi, and compatible with add-one. Have powerful streaming ability. Got the products within few days, easy to set up, does everything that it is suppose to do.

Handles 4k movie streaming from nas to tv over ethernet perfectly. After sales service from the zidoo company is fast and efficient. I had a minor technical query, & had the answer from the company within 2 hours of asking. And it was a person to person response, not automated. I was impressed by their willingness to help & to look after their customers. Something that is often lacking in many companies.

  1. No more outrageous cable bills. This box is super fast and with 2g/16g you’ll find that this media player is workhorse that you can throw anything at. I get rid of my cable after buying this.

    Works well but stil get buffering at some times of the day. I bought this box after doing some research and it is about the best of a multitude of these types of boxes at a reasonable price, some being sold at cost price as sellers want to shift them with kodi installed due to reports that the law will be changed on kodi, i would suggest you are better off paying a bit more to get the most powerful box you can afford. I do get some buffering and lag on this box which is more due to my wifi signal. There are now better programs around to get your fix of free movies, sport etc just do your research and you will be surprised how many there are without using kodi.

    There are to main ways to play videos in zidoo x9s: zdmc, a fork a kodi 16. 1, using an implementation from realtek (rtdplayer), or media center app developed by zidoo themselves. It’s also possible to set zdmc to use media center by enabling settings ->video ->playback –>play video with external player. I’ve tested zdmc with the internal player for most of the video, and switched to media center to double check for videos with issues.

    Zidoo x9s is more than a simple android tv box, as it supports nas function via openwrt running simultaneously with android 6. 0 and sata ports, as well as hdmi input function capable of recording and broadcasting videos, and supporting picture-in-picture, so i find “android media center” better fit the description for this device.

Very well packaged media player has a good look and solid feel and all metal, clock in the front blue led, and 2 huge wifi antenna and to start wifi is good how can i tell i can leach my neighbours wifi is can see all. Enough of the bench tests on the zidoo x9s rtd1295gives you an idea of the performance, no speed demon but does what it has to do very well extremely well actually. I have been watching many 4k sample’s,movies and videos of various type and size and it’s doing very well (excellent). Very easy to switch between the two images icons in top left of input pip that fade out after a few seconds or return after a click,easy to resize input pip.
