Whoa!!!! Magicsee N5 Plus Amlogic S905X3 Super Storage TV Box Stop Review

Magicsee N5 Plus Review

Just when we thought Ugoos stole the market for 2019, here comes the Magicsee N5 Plus just in time for the holidays with a bombshell of a TV Box contesting not only Ugoos, but A95X also. Magicsee has done a fine job on this box giving it power and massive storage capability on the latest Amlogic S905X3 hardware for 2019. The N5 Plus is so well designed that it prevents overheating and it has a really good user interface.

    • With all due respect I have been reading your comments for the past month, and I am more than happy to receive this TV if you buy for for me. If not then don’t expect me to just buy a new TV after I just purchased one this year. You see, what you do not understand, is it’s not the TV you are looking at, but a 4K capture card from Avermedia the best model they got. The TV is after the capture card, on the output of the card. So please stop telling me to buy a new TV, it’s the capture card that’s doing the recording and not the TV. If it was the TV you would have seen the HDR icon appear when I play a video. You get where I am coming from? Don’t let me repeat myself again.
      This is the capture card you are looking at in my videos. amzn.to/37WpXJc

  2. Your capture card is realy great, but no option capture DV HDR. The video quality of your tests is the best.
    Congratulations.

  3. Thank you for this very solid review, I went ahead and bought a box from gearbest with your code.
    I was wondering if you have an idea, how long does it take give or take for gearbest to confirm that the product has actually
    shipped. I bought the box on the second of Dec and it still has not shipped yet as of today, that is 17 business days. Is that to be expected?
    Best Regards,
    Mike

          • Appreciate you time and effort, thank you.
            Things are moving along this busy time of the year the item has been finally packed at least, will ship soon, hopefully.
            I do have a question if you don’t mind, I am a long time kodi user, so much so I failed to update my knowledge about new better streaming sources, like the one you mentioned in the review. I confess I did not understand which source it is you referred to, would you be so kind as to point me in the right direction, perhaps a tutorial or source… to understand it more.
            Happy New Year 2020 for you and all your loved ones.
            Mike

          • Download and install this app – www.filelinked.com/
            Use this key to to access the app – 64539676
            once inside dismiss all attempts to sign-up to extra stuff.
            Scroll down to the Movies and TV shows section, and click download on apps you want to use to watch free movies.
            There are many but these are my favorites. – Cimema HD, TeaTV, Cyberflix, Freeflix HQ.

            There is a Kodi alternative found on the Google Play store called Stremio. Check it out it’s really good. Install main app, then install browse to the addons section and enable all the addons you want ( no Source and repositories needed like in Kodi. really cool, you would love it. If there are kids in the home DO NOT enable the Porn addons, it will put you in trouble, as there is a watch history that displays on the Stremio home screen from all the things you have been watching on the app. Once you don’t enable the porn addons you are good to go play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.stremio.one

            I hope this helps

  4. This helps quite a bit, you saved me a lot of time searching.
    You’re right stremio is really good, teatv I particularly like it can stream episodes that have no sources in exodus.
    The box shipped today :), can’t wait for it to arrive to configure it the way you did in the episode, hopefully there will be a firmware update to solve the hard drive capacity issue soon.
    Thank you again for your time and effort!
    Mike
