The RK8 TV Box has the all-plastic housing and weighs really little. The upper part is matte plastic and the sides are shiny. Particularly noteworthy is the front space dedicated to the LED of the device in the shape of a triangle. On the front, also made of plastic, we have the small white triangle dedicated to the status LED and which also hides the infrared sensor. It is a pretty nice design compared to the typical round LED that most TV Boxes carry.
It is a 5v / 2A feeder with round connector and European plug. And It is appreciated that comes with this plug and we avoid using adapters with the problems of bad connections that often bring. The feeder, like most of the feeders of these devices, puts some tenths of consumption without plugging it into the TV Box; about 0.6 watts. When the RK8 receives power it turns on automatically. Something that can be useful to leave the device connected to a power strip.

RK8 TV Box
This TV box is equipped with RK3368 CPU and PowerVR G6110 GPU, which means you will have a smooth experience when using it watching HD movie or playing a game etc. 2GB RAM, 8GB ROM, and 32GB maximum extend capacity will give you enough space to do your thing without worry about it. It contains 3 heat-sink hole, which will make this machine become more smooth. All in all, this TV box is a good choice for you to enjoy the joy!
The consumptions of the device are similar to those of the rest of appliances with this soc. Off consumes a little less than 1 watt, probably due to the consumption of the feeder itself. In stand-by something more than 1 watt. In idle the consumption is at 3.5 watts. Playing videos is practically the same consumption and at full barely passes the 10 watts. Playing is kept around 6 watts.
RK8 TV Box Review
The RK8 moves quite smoothly. However, I have to comment that it has given me problems when doing searches on Google Play. The application closed without stopping to finish writing. I have solved sending the facilities to the team from another Android. As soon as the Google Play Services have been installed, the problem has disappeared and has allowed me to search within Google Play in a normal way. Even so, at some point, the message that Google Play has closed has appeared. It is a very ugly detail that Google Play does not work without having to do things.
It is also happening to me in the last TV Boxes that when I connect a USB dongle to operate the device with a mouse or keyboard-mouse pack, interferences are created that make it impossible to handle it at a distance of more than one meter. I have to connect a USB extension to move the dongle away from the device and avoid these interferences.
On the other hand, these are the installed applications that the TV box brings.
