PROBOX EX TV box is a small, well and aesthetically made TV Box. As we said at the beginning of his heart is Amlogic S812 Quad Core Cortex A9 CPU processor which supports 4K@30fps H.265/H.264 hardware decoding, FHD 1080p @30fps hardware encoding, supports H.264. The device also has Kodi Isengard, Gigabit Ethernet, and Wi-Fi 802.11ac. PROBOX2 EX+ runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop and has external wifi antenna.
If you have the standard infra-red remote, it works ok, but you have to always make sure it’s pointed at the box! If you opted for the wireless remote to be included (which we highly recommend), you will find this nice device in the box. It is styled like an old school games pad (see pictures above), in black and red plastic. This also allows you to play games pretty easily. It comes with a built-in microphone, which is handy for voice searching on Google, or improving call quality on apps like Skype. It is streets ahead of the standard infra-red remote that comes included and is highly optimized for the PROBOX, so is a must have if you are thinking about buying this box. You can check out our review of the PROBOX2 EX remote here.
So looking at the box itself, at the front we will find no ports at all, or lights or switches which is great. On the left side, we find the SMA antenna, which can be rotated so that your box can fit only any shelf. ON the right we find a microSD slot, and OTG connection and two USB 2.0 ports. At the back, we have the power jack, AV output, Ethernet connection and HDMI and Optical outs. On the bottom, we find a full rubberized base that will keep the PROBOX steady on any surface, and air vents that assist with the cooling of the device. On the top of the box, we find the PROBOX logo, as well as a very well located power button. There is also a light on top that is red when off, and blue when on.
Main Home Launcher
When you turn on the PROBOX, you are met with a very user-friendly interface. Just install your apps and they are displayed in large format on the screen, like on your mobile. The PROBOX also comes with another cleaner launcher installed in you prefer a more minimalist look. If you don’t like the look of either, you can install any launcher and customize the look the way you want.
Speedtest: So in our Wi-Fi speed test, the box clocked 33M/BS of download and 20MB/S of upload. When connected to the Ethernet, it clocked 93MB/s download and 20MB/S upload.
