TICTID M9C Max Android 6.0 TV Box Review





Recently I was approached to review the TICTID M9C max, a TV box running Android 6.0. Not to be confused with “Android TV” as found on the Nexus Player, Shield TV, etc. the TICTID M9C max runs Android 6.0 with a custom launcher geared for the biggest screens in your home.

What's in the box:
Box includes HMDI, power cord, remote (BYOB), and unit.

Specs:

The CPU is Amlogic S905X Quad Core. 3D GPU processor. 4K 1080i/p resolution. Professional H.265 decoding technology and WIFI 2.4GHZ. 2G RAM/16G ROM, 32G Max Extended Capacity. HDMI, AV, and SPDIF outs. Two 2.0 USB ports. 1 microSD card slot.

Pros:
Simple set up. Box is up and running really quickly. Access to all compatible Android apps via the Google Playstore, which is preinstalled on the device. Snappy response time with little to no noticeable lag. Plenty of ports for USB accessories, optical out, and microSD cards. Very easy to sideload apps.

Cons:
As with all Android boxes for TV, some apps are difficult to navigate since they were designed for touch input. The included remote has a mouse button which allows the remote to act as a mouse input to address this problem, but it is relatively slow compared to the rest of the navigation.

Summary:
If you’re looking for Android for your TV with an easy way to put apps not technically designed for the TV in your living room, this is a great choice. Kodi and similar streaming apps play nicely. The box is snappy and has plenty of inputs. The full Playstore access out of the box is great.
