Android TV boxes are getting cheaper than ever and this $60 options is a very good example.
Branded up as the MXQ S85, this Android TV Box costs around $40 less than a similar Apple TV, but runs everyone’s favourite operating system. Android 4.4 Kitkat comes pre-installed and thanks to a quad-core processor, 1GB RAM and H.265 HEVC encoding, streaming video and online content should be smooth and buffer free.
Dual USB ports alloy you to plug-in a wired keyboard, mouse or game controller, and as one of the ports supports OTG you can also plug-in a USB drive, hard drive or even web camera. The MXQ S85 connects to your TV via HDMI, and the internet either via WIFI or Ethernet. There is even room for 32GB SD card should the 8GB internal memory not be enough.
The real stand out feature for us is that this little black box of tricks comes with XBMC installed meaning you can stream and viewing video from all sorts of locations from around your own home network and even the internet.
