Conclusion

The Vankyo MatrixBox X95 Max, for the most part, is a good high-performance TV box. It produced some high benchmark scores and was excellent in 4K video playback and 3D gaming. It’s quite disappointing that simple features like screen rotation and a fully functional status bar could not be implemented. The drawback/cons for this bix is the 2.4GHz and the LAN port performance falling below the maximum speeds.
