New Release! U2 Amlogic S905X3 4K Ultra HD TV Box Review

U2 TV Box Review

Available $42.00 – s.click.aliexpress.com/e/_ASByIh

This TV box probably has the shortest name in the history of TV boxes. The U2 TV box appeared somewhere around October 2020 but has not appeared in the major retail online Chinese stores. At this time it can only be found on AliExpress.com around $42 per unit. This new TV box as all the features of a typical Amlogic S905X3 TV box, but it has some drawbacks that will raise an eyebrow among some users. In my assessment of its hardware performance the results revealed that the box has great performance in the areas of streaming, 4K video playback, YouTube, casting, and 3D gaming. What is disappointing is that the box is not rooted, it has single band 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi, and the box does not have Bluetooth support. So despite having great hardware performance I am unsure whether this model would make it into the homes of many TV box enthusiast, as these drawbacks will surely be a deal breaker.

Final thoughts

The hardware performance on this box is really good. Streaming movies and TV shows, 4K video playback, YouTube in 4K HDR, and 3D gaming is also good. If only wasn’t for the drawbacks this box will have been one of the best sellers. Well at least you can get it at a low affordable Price.
