Rockchip processors can be found in various devices with Android system and these CPUs combine high performance with low power consumption. The latest, Quad Core RK3328 (Cortex A-53) can smoothly playback videos in true 4K, and you won’t experience frame skipping or unnecessary buffering. 4GB of RAM in DDR3 standard further influences stability and ensures that user interface and apps will work fast and without delays.
Movies can be played back from a local 64 GB internal memory, from a memory card or from a flash drive that can be connected to one of two USB slots. One of the outputs – USB 3.0 is very fast, allowing you to quickly transfer files to the device’s internal storage at a rate of several hundred megabytes per minute.
Interface and appearance
Android 7.1 works quickly, steadily and most importantly – it makes possible to to add your own applications from Google Play store to customize your device. This allows you not only to watch movies via Netflix, HBO and other paid or free VOD services, but also the installation of games. Just connect the controller to the USB port and you can play it on the big screen. Available 64 GB of internal storage can be expanded using a memory card. Unfortunately, this TV Box supports TF cards up to 32 GB only, which is significantly less than other similar TV boxes. This limits the free memory available to the apps, but if you plan to use H96 MAX – H2 mainly as a movie player, this is not a significant drawback.
We also liked the design of this equipment very much: unlike most boring looking TV boxes with vanilla black cover, this one was confined in a colorful casing. The device is small and will occupy little space on the shelf below TV, and it also has a LED clock to display current time.
The H96 MAX – H2 supports Dolby 5.1 sound, so if you have surround speaker set, you can connect it to the device to enjoy cinematic audio for even better movie experience. In addition, this TV Box supports AirPlay and Miramax standards, which allows you to directly stream video to TVs that support this type of wireless data transfer. This kit also includes a remote control, so you won’t need to buy external control devices such as air mouse or wireless keyboard.
