" ...  Es un TV Box que cuenta con un sistema standard y eso es muy importante, Android TV, el cual se puede actualizar sin problemas, además de Chromecast embebido, cuenta con un buen hardware que hasta el momento no me ha producido ninguna lentitud, mi experiencia de navegación ha sido muy fluida, buen precio, buenas conexiones, solo veo que hace falta el puerto óptico para audio, pero con el HDMI es más que suficiente, la experiencia de puesta en marcha a sido también satisfactoria y sencilla  ...  "
