Packaging. I was still surprised at the post office when they handed me a rather impressive package. The fact is that in addition to this prefix, I still have Himedia q5, and when I received it, the packaging was 2 times more modest. I will show below in the photo. The prefix led for dimensions.

In addition to the usual pimple, the box was packed in a tight, reliable / I don’t even know what to call it /. For example, this is how I got high-tech:


The case is stylish, aluminum

Compared to HighMedia

Each element in its box, with a picture. Everything is clear without a description.

The console is ordinary, i.e. no aero mouse, no gyroscopes, etc.

USB cable and sata. Brief instruction.

The prefix itself. Appearance - there is nothing superfluous on the front panel, there are no physical buttons to turn it on, the device turns on as soon as the power supply is turned on. You can turn off the remote control.

On the left side are 2 usb 2.0 ports, a memory card slot, sata port.

On the back of ethernet, usb 3.0 otg, hdmi, AV, optical output, power.

On the right side is empty

First impression - nimble, pre-installedplay market, super su, xbmc and so on - in general, everything you need. There is no Chinese. Immediately I was eager to check - the games (which did not work out for me on high-tech - the xbox joystick does not work, to screw it in any way - there is no root, etc.). I stuck a wired xbox joystick. Decided immediately! with the joystick you can run through the menu / and so on - in general, you can perform all the functions of the remote control. Pretty comfortable. I downloaded GTA SA, Dead Trigger 2, asphalt - in these games the joystick worked great, I managed to play very successfully. Only one thing was embarrassing - I managed to play on the asphalt only on the average chart, there were pretty decent interference / artifacts at the maximum speed, there were a lot of versions, manuals for editing the game files, I think it should help somehow, I haven't tried it yet.

Torrent Stream Controller works great. On the screen - the first launch, the engine is loading.

The prefix is ​​very promising, stable firmware, it is very pleased with the responsiveness of support, the prefix is ​​actively testcontact the manufacturer, everything is enoughIt is sewn so far only through usb and the program, OTA stated. Playback of the H.265 4K video was not entirely perfect in xbmc, the video slows down a bit. The standard player is everything ok. Perhaps the matter is in the settings / players themselves, here here it is written that H.265 is simply not properly supported in xbmc and mx player. By the way, the prefix is ​​tested more professionally and in-depth using the same link; my review is more amateurish in nature. Dolby Digital 5.1, TrueHD 5.1, like DTS - everything is fine. I tried 3Diso - the feelings are ambiguous. The image is automatically displayed in 2d, you can manually set the desired format - SBS, for example, in xbmc, the 3d icon appears. The image is displayed as is - two pictures, on TV we turn on the 3D mode. But the picture is not perfect, you can see small outlines of silhouettes, for example. There is no way to check the gigabit network - see the link to the review in English. Also, what caught my eye is that it does not heat up at all. And I have something to compare with - you can get burned on the same hymedia when this is not hotter than my hand. The seller is pretty good - in the throes of choosing a prefix, I actively talked on w3bsit3-dns.com, about the purchase. When I placed and paid for the order, one user unsubscribed about the same thing, only from another seller. They promised to send him about a month later, the next day I received the track, and a week later the parcel was imported in Moscow. Later on at the same w3bsit3-dns.com I read that it seems to be like an official dealer - I think it will help someone. As you already understood - I have two consoles (Himedia q5 quad core), each is good / unique in its own way - 4 cores and 8 cores - and the price is one - $ 150. B, having both of them in my hands, I still can’t decide which one to leave. With great capabilities, convenience, versatility, with the makings of the future. It is interesting to listen to opinions. If you are interested in a test of something or questions - write.
