Hidden Gem!!! Sunnzo S9 Max TV Box 4GB 64GB

Sunnzo S9 Max TV Box Review

Here is another TV box you won’t find that easy, and this one is called the S9 Max TV box by Sunnzo. In this model falls in line with high end S905X3 models, and for just $45 at the time of writing this review you get 4GB of RAM 64GB of internal storage on Amlogic S905X3 CPU clocked at 1.9GHz. In this review I had a bit of a hiccup trying to login to my Google account, but after completing a OT update the issue is fixed and I was able to complete my review without issues. The box has great performance benchmarks placing third among S905X3 models, it has excellent Wi-Fi reception on both Wi-Fi bands and on the LAN port, great 4K video playback, digital surround sound audio output, and good 3D gaming. There were a few areas of concern that are no different similar models in its class and I listed those on the cons and the end of this article. You may find that it’s hard to find and not available on Amazon or any of the Chinese retailers, it is however available using the link I listed below.

S9 Max TV Box pros and cons

The Sunnzo S9 Max is a good high performance TV box ideal for streaming movies and TV shows, 4K video playback, some Android gaming, and other everyday activities.

Its Wi-Fi reception is excellent as well as its Ethernet LAN speed.

It has some of the highest benchmarks in its class, and the price is suited to the performance and hardware you get in this box.

Areas of interest that would be of concern for some users are the lack of a built-in navigation bar and status bar, no root switch, the inability to navigate Apks with the stock remote, and the borderline heating issues if you intend to play android games.
