Description

The new Fire TV offers best value for money in the entry level players. Even if you don’t plan on using 4K content, we recommend this device over the previous generation sticks as it can perform better due to improved processor and extra memory.

Description

Affordable and very easy to get up an running, the Fire TV Stick is great with imagesvideo and most of our plugins. If the stick does not ship to your country, look for “Fire TV Stick Basic Edition”

Now that Amazon released 4K version of the stick, our recommendation is to get the newer model instead, even if you are not planning on 4K content. Performance improvements in the new generation are well worth the extra 15$ over the non 4K version.

Description

Compute sticks come in both Linux and Windows flavors. The upside of using Linux is that it can be completely configured to disable all popups/updates whereas Windows is more restrictive in terms of configuration options. Unfortunately though Linux does not have as good graphics drivers, therefore our application will perform better in Windows if you’re planing to use element animations or transitions.

Mi Box by Xiaomi is an interesting choice as it’s actually running AndroidTV, a branch of Android customized for TVs. Mi Box has a sleek design and comes with a comfortable remote. Though the hardware acceleration is not as good as FireTV devices, this model has 2GB of ram, which can come handy if you plan to display many website plugins.

Description

MX10 comes with a decent processor and graphics chip, however FireTV devices pack more punch. What makes this device stand out is the large amount of storage and RAM that comes with the device. If you find FireTV devices lacking storage or ram for your content, then MX10 might be a good choice for you.

Chromebit is the first entry-level player running ChromeOS – for production usage we recommend setting the device up in kiosk mode. The hardware acceleration is not as good as FireTV devices, however the device has 2GB of ram and supports script injection, which makes it a good choice if you plan on displaying websites or need to alter the site behaviour / log in.

Description

Great player for Open Source enthusiasts. You don’t need to be a Linux wizard to set it up, just download & copy our pre-made image!
Though the player score is not great due to poor hardware acceleration, that affects ticker/transition effects and element animation effects, if all you need is to display basic signage (images, videos, text, occasional website) without bells and whistles, raspberry will serve you fine!

MXQ Pro

MXQ Pro 4K TV

Description

At around 30$, MXQ Pro is probably the cheapest Android device. For a low-end device, it can handle transitions and certain element animations surprisingly well, but can become unstable or even freeze if it’s overwhelmed, therefore we can recommend this device only if you’re planning on simple signage content consisting mostly of images and text.
There is also MXQ Pro+ that comes with 2GB RAM.

Despite the 4K promise, the device can’t scale higher than 720p in all apps we’ve tested.
