    "The EASYTONE Android TV Box is a fairly good choice for anyone interested in cutting the cord for their cable provider. There are a few things I will mention about this Android TV Box. The first is that I would not suggest this media player if you are not tech savvy, as you will be required to uninstall and reinstall Kodi, as this comes preinstalled with an outdated version of the software. This can be a bit of a tedious task unless you are comfortable with following tech instructions. Another thing to take into account is that you will want to have a VPN to pair with this media player.

    "Warning! Was disappointed to find this new model had compatibility issues with Netflix and I spent a huge amount of time troubleshooting to even get it to connect. It worked in the end, but it definitely isn't worth the money when you can get better media players for the same price (or even a previous G-Box model). "

    "I got this because my old media player was having compatibility issues with certain filetypes, and in that regard, I was very pleased. I was however very disappointed to find out this only supports 2TB hard drives max, which means if you have a lot of series you want to watch in HD, you might find yourself switching between hard-drives multiple times. Otherwise it was pretty decent."

    "This is great at playing different media types in almost all cases, but there is a wild inconsistency with MKV files. This box doesn't seem to play certain MKV files, but it does play others. It is very confusing and frustrating."

    "If your 4k Smart TV is lonely, there isn't many better pieces of technology to pair it with than the Sony UBP-X800. First and foremost, the price is great! When it comes to media players you could be paying thousands but in this case, for $248 you will be playing 4k Ultra HD movies in no time with HDR and incredible Dolby Atmos and DTS: X object-based surround sound. Unfortunately, there's some quality control concerns regarding this player where the player randomly freezes or the picture gets distorted but you have a one year warranty to hopefully take care of those issues. Enjoy the movie theater quality movies!"
