Mecool M8S Plus DVB: Design
The design of new TV Box is very similar to Xiaomi Mi TV Box. It is small rectangular box of black color. Mecool M8S Plus DVB is made of matte plastic, and it has rounded edges. It looks very stylish.
The device has compact dimensions – 13.00 x 9.85 x 2.08 cm and light weight of only 180 grams.
On the top panel there is only the “Android TV” logo. On the back side you can see connectors and ports. There are two USB 2.0 ports, AV / AV output, HDMI and 5V power port. \
The manufacturer decided to remove the slot for microSD card. It means that you will need to use USB flash drive for storing data, if internal memory is not enought for you. By the way, it has 8GB of internal memory. To be honest, I cannot say that the lack of the slot for microSD card is a big disadvantage, becuase it usually takes too much time to transfer files from it.
All the ports and connectors are placed on one side, and it is very comfortable.
On the bottom panel we can see a cooling grid and four rubberized legs. They will help the device not to slide on the surface of the table.
The package includes: MCE TV M8S Plus DVB, remote control, power adapter, HDMI cable and user manual.
