Monsterbox X1 Pro Superb Live TV/VOD TV Box

Monsterbox X1 Pro Review

Another player in the life TV market is a brand called Monsterbox and they have two models the Monsterbox X1 Max, and the Monsterbox X1 Pro. Both models provide the same service is just that the X1 Max has more RAM and internal storage. The main contention with these boxes is the price as most people find it difficult to pay for an Android box of this nature. However it’s the  live-TV and video on demand is what drives the price.

Unlike other IPTV apps this box connects directly to servers using Mac address, which means that it eliminates buffering and it delivers seamless streams of life TV and video-on-demand movies.
So in this review you will discover that the hardware used these boxes are pretty low end, however the service you get on these boxes and the ability to cut cost on your monthly bills is worth the investment.

Monsterbox X1 Pro pros and cons

 

Final thoughts

In my opinion the Monsterbox X1 Pro and the SuperBox S3 Pro are the same boxes, different housing, same servers they are feeding from, with different app names. I don’t mind any of that or that they are just rebranding, what I would like is that they use better TV Box hardware so at least you get something more than just the service for your money. The boxes are functional and the life TV service is excellent however, they are too low end to attract some buyers.
