X3 Max Amlogic S905X3 4K TV Box

X3 Max TV Box Review

 

There are TV boxes out there some of them that never make it to the big stage in terms of major retail stores such as Amazon and other mainstream Chinese retailers. The X3 Max is one such TV box. I stumbled across this model while searching for missing hidden gems that I believe belonged on my channel and after reviewing the specs I believe that it had all the requirements to be a fantastic streaming device. In my review of this model it delivered an excellent movie and TV show streaming experience, 4K video playback, and digital audio surround sound outputs. What was even more amazing is that given it specs of 4 GB/64 GB the box just because $38. So whether demand is low, or this is Clarence the X3 Max is a steal of a deal for $38. Yes the box does have the same drawbacks as most Amlogic S905X3 models but this is something to grab while the price remains in this low.

Final thoughts

This box is a great TV box given the price point of just $38.
How long will it stay at that price nobody knows. For a 4 GB 64 GB Amlogic S905X3 CPU clocked at 1.90 GHz for just $38 is unheard of. However even though this model is great at the performing its basic core functions, such as streaming movies and TV shows, 4K video playback, and digital surround sound audio, it does have a few drawbacks to take into consideration.
