Azurill Smart TV CS918 - also called MK888
AV port or HDMI - RJ45 or Wifi - Quad Core
12 months Warranty
This is one of the first QuadCore Android TV Boxes.
The demand for larger Android TV Boxes including more USB connections is increasing because of the connection of peripherals. Many Android TV Sticks are so small leaving little room for multiple USB connections and or gates. The MK888 has enough connections available to which this is no longer a problem.
Thanks to the AV port and included cable is the MK888 also connect to a TV with no HDMI!
The MK888 has a beautiful dynamic appearance and looks good. Because there is an Ethernet connection, you can enjoy high-speed internet. This is obviously of benefit to stream movies via YouTube for example, XBMC and Netflix. The MK888 is therefore a pretty good alternative to the Minix Neo X7 and is also priced lower.
System on a Chip
More and more companies are making Android TV devices based on the powerful Rockchip RK3188 SoC. This SoC is an integrated ARM Cortex-A9 Quad-Core CPU (processor). This reaches speeds of up to 1.8GHz and is therefore the fastest processor available in the Android TV world.
Other specifications for this SoC, the ARM Mali-400 MP4 graphics card. This Quad Core GPU reaches speeds of 500MHz. This allows the MK888 playback resolutions up to 2160p, also called Super / Ultra HD! 1080 and earlier certainly play smoothly, with no less than 60 frames per second. According to the manufacturer, this SoC better than the NVIDIA Tegra 3 and Samsung Exynos 4412 processors.
The RK3188 also has a NEON processor, this creates multimedia acceleration allowing the streaming of movies and such is possible. Think of Youtube, Netflix or the popular XBMC .
The memory includes 2GB of DDR3 RAM. This allows you to very quickly and smoothly run Android apps on your TV and Multi-Tasking certainly no problem. The storage or internal memory consists of 8GB Nand Flash, if this is desired to expand with a Micro SD card up to 32GB, giving you a total of 40GB storage. The extra USB ports can also extend this to an external hard drive, so the storage is much greater.
The MK888 (K-R42) features the new Android 4.2 operating system, it is very stable and is also used on the latest Smartphones (Samsung Galaxy S4). Android also ensures that you get access to the Google Play Store. Here are as many as 700,000 different app's on, including Facebook, Twitter. Flickr, Gmail, Youtube, Candy Crush, Angry Birds, MX Player, Chrome, Google+, Picasa and more.
Because the MK888 is greater than an Android TV Stick, has more ports available to him, such as an Ethernet connection. This can come in handy, because a reliable Internet connection is very handy if you plan to use to stream movies from a shared network drive (NAS) this Android TV Box or just over the internet such as XBMC. With 2 USB 2.0 ports, you can connect eg a flymouse, but also a webcam or external hard drive. There is also a Mini USB present, an Optical out S / PDIF for connecting eg a Home Cinema, an HDMI port, a port for headphones and a slot for Micro SD card. There is also an IR port for using the wireless remote control that comes with the TV box. This remote is certainly neat, but not Fly mouse. Do you want the most out of your Androidbox, we recommend a Fly / Air mouse to.
Like most TV Boxes also features built-in WiFi on the MK888, MK888 only has an external antenna, making the WiFi reception is significantly improved. This is WiFi 802.11 b / g / n. This also uses the n-band which is very fast since there are not so many people who are using the band with respect to the b / g band. Via DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) lets you play movies and such right from your tablet, smartphone or PC to stream on your TV!
