ProBox2 EX+ TV Box is a slick looking small black box with a matte finish on top and bottom and a reflective coating on all four sides. It’s light at around 200 grams and can be easily mounted on the back of a TV or other HDMI capable digital screen, using two-sided tape. (Better to check first and make sure the remote controls the box when mounted that way)
The housing PROBOX2 EX+ is made of good quality, not shiny plastic. At the top is the POWER button The front panel has IR receiver and power LED. On one side there are two USB 2.0 ports, OTG port, and micro SD card slot. On the rear panel are 5V DC jack 3.5 mm, AV port, RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet port, HDMI port and an optical S / PDIF port.
PROBOX EX+ comes with a typical remote controller, allowing available for main functions and having the mouse model. That’s why we wanted to focus more on PROBOX2 Remote+, which is not the typical remote controller but an air mouse with integrated game controls. PROBOX2 Remote+ has also Gyroscope, Gaming pad, built-in microphone and directional pad for easy navigation in media applications like Kodi. Below PROBOX2 Remote+ and USB receiver. PROBOX2 EX+ is a small TV Box measures 115mm * 115mm * 26mm. Below pictures, PROBOX2 EX+ compared to the matchbox.
Main Home Launcher
Booting Android to the “home screen” takes about 01:04.5 seconds (too long!). “Home screen” launcher PROBOX2 EX+ looks nice and very, very simple and easy to use. But it also is available on PROBOX2 EX+ more colorful launcher, it all depends on your preferences. In addition to the remote control, I used the standard keyboard and mouse, Remote+ and Xiaomi gamepad.
The PC Mark benchmark tests are lacking, because out of the three boxes tested, only the Minix X8-H was able to complete the video test portion of the test fully. It seems that both the EX+ and the Gecko require the use of specialized codecs in order to play some encoded video files. However, video testing with the included Kodi media center seems to produce great results, and the other parts of the benchmark show an obvious lead.
