    The first Amlogic S912-powered Youtube 4K Streamer

    In the aftermath of so many 4K TV boxes deals, it seems that the users are definitely expecting to see more crispy UHD displays sitting around in peoples’ households. In part for this reason, Mecool has launched the Amlogic S912-powered M8S Pro L which lets users stream both normal aspect ratio and 360 degree video content in ultra HD live from YouTube.







    Android TV OS
    MECOOL M8S PRO L TV Box is based on the Android TV OS, with high speed and smooth performance, which is designed to turn your regular TV into a smart one.







    Amlogic S912
    MECOOL M8S PRO L comes with Amlogic S912 CPU which is a high performance octa core 64bit chipset known for a maximum clock speed of up to 21.5GHz. Apps will never run so smoothly in other chipset devices. People can easily enjoy many hot games and APKs with its 3GB SDRAM and 32GB Flash ROM.







    3GB SDRAM, eMMC 32GB Flash
    MECOOL M8S PRO L is configured with 3GB memory and 32GB of storage space, advantageous in performance, security and reliability, ascribing to the eMMC memory, ultimately delivering a richer end-user experience.







    IEEE 802.11ac
    IEEE 802.11ac, one of the wireless networking standards in 802.11 family, is developed in the IEEE Standards Association process for the purpose of high-throughput wireless local area networks (WLANs) on the 5 GHz band.







    4K Resolution
    The latest in a line of broadcast and media resolutions, 4K is due to replace 1080p as the highest-resolution signal available for in-home movies and television. With a minimum resolution of 3,840 pixels wide and 2,160 pixels high, making it the equivalent to two 1080p screens in height and two in length.

    Bluetooth Voice Remote

    The box itself looks much the same as other Meecool M8S devices with plenty of venterlation holes all over the unit,The only difference you will notice is the new bluetooth Voice remote and that has surprissed me how well it works,You can ask it almost anything like whats the weather like,Search youtube or even open an app.The MECOOL M8S PRO L TV Box is based on the Android TV OS (That i dont normally like)But with this device im starting to like it as it runs so well No crap installed either.The UI is very fast and smooth and the box boots up in under 30 seconds taking you to the Android TV home screen (Below).








    Games
    Iv also done some game tests using my Sixaxis PS3 Controller that works perfect using the sixaxis app from apptoide,Not many boxes support using the PS3 Gamepad out the box so this is a big plus for the Mecool M8 S Pro l

    Ashpalt8,Beach buggy Blitz,Real racing3 ect all play perfect.

    Device & firmware
    The firmware on this box is Very good for a starting point,Nice and quick & everything seems to work well

    The boot time on the M8S PRO L is just under 30 seconds to complete

    Shut down time is 3/4 seconds

    Antutu Score of 29284 Not a massive score here
