T8 Pro TV Box was very popular because you could add an extra HDD Disk to the box, allowing you to had like 1TB extra disk space. That’s very useful if you want to store all of your movies/music/photos in this media box and access it easily on your TV. The new Ebox T8 Pro was designed to keep that extra slot for the HDD Disk, this is a very rare feature in an Android TV Box.

Air Mouse Remote Control
I normally recommend to buy a Rii mini keyboard in my posts, but I’ve tried now the Air Mouse and I’m impressed because you can actually do everything with this remote control and it’s very convenient.
With this remote control you have 3 functions in one remote:
The Air Mouse allows you to use the mouse just pointing the remote to your TV and select clicking the OK button. It’s like using the Wii console.
If you flip the remote you will find a keyboard, very useful to make searches on the browser / Play Store or Kodi.
And you also have the standard remote control buttons.
HDD Disk Slot
The previous version (the T8-4 box), was very popular because you could add an extra HDD Disk to the box, allowing you to had like 1TB extra disk space. That’s very useful if you want to store all of your movies/music /photos in this media box and access it easily on your TV. The new Ebox T8 Pro was designed to keep that extra slot for the HDD Disk, this is a very rare feature in an Android TV Box.
Very few Android TV Boxes have AV support for older TVs without HDMI ports. With AV support, this T8 Pro box can be used on any TV.
Internet Speed Test
re are many Smart Android TV Boxes, all of them support ethernet and wifi connections, but that doesn’t mean that they will get the same signal strength.
As these boxes are made to stream over the internet, you need a good internet signal reception.
I’ve tested and compared this box with the Q-Box Android TV Box and my brand new laptop Dell 13 7000. My broadband is 70Mb fibre. These are the internet speed test results:
T8 Pro Performance
I’ve tested this box opening and closing apps, using Kodi, streaming media, playing 4K movies and I was impressed how easy and fast this box handled all the tasks. Even closing Kodi was in less than 1 second, in other boxes that I’ve tested it takes sometimes 30 seconds and in many of them, Kodi freezes when you try to close it.
Many manufacturers of TV Boxes only think on making money selling boxes and they don’t care about launch new firmware updates. I’m not sure if it was just luck, but in the next day after I received the box, I had a new OTA update available! Maybe that’s because EntertainmentBox is one of the very few manufacturers that have their own software, and they continually work on their software to improve functionality and fix errors. Also, they provide technical support by email, phone and in-store, so they need to fix errors to avoid complaints.

Doesn’t come with Kodi addons installed (because of legal reasons). But you can easily install your favourite addons by yourself.
It’s a bit taller than other boxes, but that’s because of the space needed for the HDD disk slot.
It’s a bit expensive, but I highly recommend it.
