M9C Pro Android TV box review

The M9C Pro Android TV box is a low cost way to add some smarts to your television.

In the box you get the M9C Pro, HDMI cable, basic remote and the power cable.

The M9C Pro has 2 USB 2 ports (handy if you want to use different controllers, remotes or other accessories), an SD card slot and an Ethernet port should you wish to wire this to your network.

You don’t need to use a wire, it has WiFi and there are no external aerials, which keeps the box looking nice and tidy.

The remote is fine for day to day navigation tasks, but for text entry it’s rather slow so a more advanced airmouse/keyboard combination is recommended.

The manufacturers haven’t loaded this with loads of software, but they have added a nice, big button, interface that works really well on TVs. Each icon is a container for shortcuts you add, in the same way you might make folders of your Android mobile.

For general tasks such as web surfing or streaming the box is OK, however it struggles when pushed with more advanced tasks such as gaming. As you’ll see in the video review below Android thought the game had frozen because the box couldn’t cope with it.

When games get going they’re playable, but they can be choppy and are no where near as smooth as you’d like.

This is a low cost box so if you’re looking for a second Android box for the spare room it’s worth a look, but if you’re interested in an all-round performer there are better alternatives.

The M9C Pro is available from Amazon UK: http://amzn.to/2rv7n4D and Amazon USA: http://amzn.to/2pXLZER
