What Devices Do We Recommend? and What's the Differences?!

There are generally three different classes of devices we keep in stock and recommend:


#1: AMAZON TV DEVICES

4K Fire TV Stick (with Alexa Voice Remote)

These small, portable and simple devices are great for the everyday person whose content use is minimal. This may include your basic IPTV, TV Shows and Movie applications. This device has a great dual band WiFi connection (with 2.4GHz & 5GHz) and it also comes with a great Bluetooth voice remote. As this is an official licensed device, it also plays Netflix in 4K and HD (when available).. which most of the boxes that are out on the market these days do not!

Device Cons: Lacks USB ports, and is not suitable for those looking to run a lot of apps or games.


Additional Recommendations: Pick Up or Request a Bluetooth Mini Keyboard Remote ; like the Q9 or the Rii i8+


For those who prefer to hard wire their devices. Amazon has an Ethernet adapter they sell separately to go with your Fire TV Stick. You can also purchase an adapter to add USB ports to the Fire TV Stick as well.

#2: ANDROID BOXES -- S905X2 and S922X MODELS

AMLOGIC S905X2 BOXES

x96Max / T95Q / Beelink GT1-Mini / MeCool KM9 or Similar!

These new generation of boxes are great for the everyday streamer, who may want to install more apps and some games onto their device, as they have more storage than the above Fire TV Sticks. They come with additional ports for those looking to hard wire an internet connection via Ethernet to avoid coming into contact with unstable WiFi connections. Having additional USB ports also makes it easy to use with a wide array of accessories.. all ranging from keyboards, mice, additional storage and more.

Device Cons: Not suitable for the Hardcore Gamer or those who are looking to run Netflix in HD Quality!


Additional Recommendations: Pick Up or Request a Bluetooth Mini Keyboard Remote ; like the Q9 or the Rii i8+


AMLOGIC S922X BOXES

Devices: Beelink GT-K (King)

These even newer generation of boxes are great for streamers who are looking for a top of the line performance, that want to install more apps and some games as well. They happen to have more storage and processing power than the devices that we've listed above and they pack additional ports for those who are looking to hard wire an internet connection via Ethernet as well. Having USB 3.0 ports also makes it easy to use a wide array of accessories, from keyboards, mice, additional storage and more.

Device Cons: Not suitable for the hardcore gamer or those who are looking to run Netflix in HD Quality!


Additional Recommendations: Pick Up or Request a Bluetooth Mini Keyboard Remote ; like the Q9 or the Rii i8+

#3: ANDROID TV OS NVIDIA SHIELD

The Nvidia Shield TV is still the best Android TV Box that you can buy so far in 2019. This device is aimed at those, who are looking for the absolute best in both performance and gaming. Sporting two variants, one with a gaming controller and one without.. irregardless they both come with the standard voice remote that works with Google Assistant. Nvidia has done a great job offering software updates that continually make the Shield TV better than before. The Shield OS running the official Android TV OS, will allow you to run applications such as Netflix and YouTube in Full HD and a dedicated Google App Store specific to the device!


Device Cons: This is not really a con per-say, but this option is the priciest and would need to be looked at as an investment into your entertainment and streaming world!


Additional Recommendations: Invest in a Bluetooth Controller or Remote ; like the Q9 or Rii i8+


SanDisk Extreme Go USB 3.1 Flash Drive: for adding additional storage.


Samsung T5 Portable SSD: adding additional storage, larger and faster than a USB drive.

DEVICES NOT MENTIONED:

^^ BuzzTV / Informir / The Formuler Z8 or other MAG/MAC Devices


Everybody is completely different in regards to their preferences. These devices have a great user interface in regards to IPTV viewing, with that being said.. they do happen to lack performance and memory to go above and beyond this. With the recent closures of streaming TV Services, some are removing or limiting (or simply being cautious) of their VOD (Video On Demand) sections.


At the end of the day, when investing in IPTV Streaming Services, we have to understand the value within the service and that features such as VOD (for tv show and movies on demand) or catch-up (where channels are recorded for a few days and you're able to go back and watch them) .. these are bonus features and even without these features, a stable IPTV Streaming Service is well worth what you invest into them.


CONCLUDING NOTES:

We always have a wide array of devices at our fingertips and to be very honest, we happen to love the simplicity of the 4K Fire TV Sticks. The quality of the device, the compatibility to play mainstream applications in full HD/4K, its great dual-band WiFi, the light weight and easy portability to be able to take it with you on the road and the simple yet precise Bluetooth remote makes this the perfect choice for the simple everyday streamer, who just wants to pick up their remote and watch their content at the most affordable price.


If the mainstream applications, such as Netflix.. do not matter to you as much

(seeing how you're able to get all the same content from the other free streaming apps)

If you would like more space and additional ports for USB and external audio devices and you happen to be just be someone who may like a more stock android experience.. then the S905x2 android boxes are a suitable match, while still being a great value.


If you like everything that was said about the S905X2 boxes, but would like slightly higher performance and wouldn't mind running a few emulators, games and ROMS, then stepping up to the performance (and budget) of the S922X android boxes would suite you nicely.


Last but not least, if you're looking for the ultimate performance when it comes to both streaming and gaming, the ability to run both android games, ROMS and emulators but also PC games via steam.. then of course the Nvidia Shield would be the best choice for you. Just keep in mind, as always when investing in the best.. this option is the priciest out of the selection of devices that we recommended, as you do indeed get what you pay for!
