Smart TV BOXs are becoming more and more popular, but not every TV has 4K playback functions or limited capabilities. So, if you want to watch your favorite movies and TV shows online or from a local storage, you need to buy a TV Box.
Alfawise makes really reliable electronic equipment available at a good price. The Alfawise A8 NEO, though one of the budget devices, has a pretty good stuffing. Compared to the previous version, the A8 NEO has a faster RK3229 chipset that supports special movie playback and encoding functions. It is much better than the outdated Amlogic S905W used by other manufacturers, even Xiaomi. The processor is the most important thing in set-top boxes because it provides smooth 4K movie playback as well as support for many types of codecs. You can potentially even watch videos at 60 frames per second using HDCP 2.2 and dynamic HDR effects for amazingly good image quality.
It is also worth noting that the A8 NEO runs on Android 9.0, and it is probably the first set-top box that supports the latest iteration of the operating system. The available internal memory is only 16 GB, so we strongly recommend adding a memory stick or connecting an external USB storage device to increase the space available. Android 9.0 allows you to install almost any application, so you can watch Netflix, Show max, HBO Go or other VOD services without restrictions. It is also possible to play games on the big screen. For games, you need to connect an external controller via USB or Bluetooth.
Two video outputs allow you to connect this set-top box to a TV, monitor or projector. You get the fast HDMI 2.0 you need for 4K playback and the standard AV used in older TVs. The device connects to the Internet using a LAN cable or a fast 2.4 GHz / 5 GHz dual channel Wi-Fi network. Two USB ports provide the ability to connect peripheral devices, and a memory card slot will increase the amount of available disk space.
Despite the strong hardware, the Alfawise A8 NEO is a truly miniature set-top box that fits in your hand. You can easily place the set-top box in a limited space underneath your TV. It is enclosed in a glossy black case, and the LED on the front panel changes color depending on the mode of operation. The manufacturer has provided European, British or American power connector.
This inexpensive set-top box contains everything that a film and TV fan can dream of, turning a TV into a real home entertainment center. It has better equipment than the previous version and is the first set-top box that works under the latest version of Android. Whether you’re planning on watching videos, playing games or listening to music, the Alfawise A8 NEO will be useful for you.
