Our opinion on the Mecool KM8

 

In general, the Mecool KM8 box is interesting. Its general and customizable interface makes it easy to use. Another positive point is the fluidity of its navigation. As a bonus, the images and videos are of very good quality. There are still some negative points such as the non-compatibility with Netflix when connected via Google Play or Google Cast.

Another point to improve also, its NTFS incompatibility: the device is detected by the browser, but the content remains corrupted. The BOX is delivered configured, i.e. you arrive on the Android desktop (Lean Launcher) as soon as you start up.the fluidity of navigation in the interface is good, superior to that of the MECOOL M8S Pro + Android TV version, here in test, which uses a less powerful S905W processor.

The connectivity is the point of interest of this Android TV box. The KM8 offers two USB 2 ports, a micro SD card reader, an HDMI output, a 10/100 Ethernet network input, an antenna socket and an analog audio/video jack. However, it lacks a digital audio output.
