    Interesting variation of the S912 implementation.

    SATA supporting up to 3TB might be useful for holding a lot of media. I'm guessing that the SATA will be tied to the USB controller so whilst quite adequate, it won't deliver blistering speeds.

    One more with a dedicated OTG port, which I hope will offer more than just a port for flashing, although having 3 full sized dedicated ones might negate that need.

    Nice looking aluminium case with 2 colour variations.

    Cooling is going to be critical on this one when using the internal hard drive bay.

    Price will have to be competitive to compete with newer boxes like the Beelink SEA I

      There is another one the Ebox T8 V Amlogic S912 TV Box with SATA Bay SOurce :CNXsoft

      Last summer I reviewed Ebox T8-4, an Android TV box based on Amlogic S905 processor sold by entertainmentbox.com and geared towards the UK market. Although it had some of the typical issues with HDMI audio pass-through, I found the box easy to setup, and potentially interesting for UK viewers since popular IPTV apps were pre-installed. It also came with a SATA bay but for some reasons I never managed to have either a 1TV HDD or 128 GB SSD recognized by the system. Nevertheless, the box is now used full time by another person who seems to be quite happy about it, especially since it comes with an air mouse and a gamepad, and good support. The company has now sent me their updated model, Ebox T8 V, with very similar features but instead equipped with Amlogic S912 octa-core processor. Before checking the firmware, I’ll have a look at the hardware in the first part of the review. Ebox T8-V Specifications


      Apart from the SATA bay and VFD display, the specifications are pretty standard for an Amlogic S912 TV box:
      • SoC – Amlogic S912 octa-core ARM Cortex A53 processor @ up to 1.5 GHz with ARM Mali-820MP3
      • System Memory – 2GB DDR3
      • Storage – 16GB eMMC flash, SD slot up to 32GB, and internal 2.5 SATA bay
      • Video Output – HDMI 2.0 and RCA composite ports
      • Audio Output – HDMI, RCA stereo audio ports, and optical S/PDIF
      • Connectivity – Gigabit Ethernet, dual band WiFi 802.11 b/g/n/ac. N.B.: no Bluetooth listed in specs, but they sell a Bluetooth gamepad so it might be supported.
      • USB – 3x USB 2.0 ports (including one OTG port) + 1x micro USB port
      • Misc – IR receiver, power button, VFD display
      • Power Supply – 5V/3A
      The box runs Android 6.0 operating system with SPMC. Ebox T8-V Unboxing


      Beside “T8 V SMART TV BOX” package I also got an air mouse (the same as last year), a EU to UK plug adapter, and something packaged with cardboard and tape.

      Click to Enlarge

      Let’s open that first… That’s a 1TB WD Blue hard drive, which means I should probably already be setup, and I would not need to use a separate computer to partition and format it a way supported by the box.


      The air mouse remote is the same as last year (S77 Pro), and includes a standard IR side with IR learning function, mouse functionality…

      Click to Enlarge

      …as well as a QWERTY keyboard side. The battery compartment is located on the right side of the keyboard and takes two AAA batteries.

      Click to Enlarge

      The first thing I noticed when opening the main package was a piece of paper (top right below) reading:
      Because the T8 V is operating on Android 6.0, you will need to adjust the settings a bit. Let’s go into Settings, then click on Video, go to the bottom and change Settings Level to Expert. Now go to the Acceleration Tab, then over to Allow Hardware Acceleration – Amcodec, and turn it off. You need to do this, because with the introduction of the new Android 6.0, Amcodec is no longer being supported, which can cause issues with the Ebox Media Center.
      This could probably be useful to change those Kodi settings for other Amlogic S905X, S905D, and S912 TV boxes too. I’m not sure why it is not disabled by default in the firmware however.

      The rest of the package includes an IR remote taking two AAA batteries which you are unlikely to use at all if you have purchased the air mouse, a 5V/3A power supply, an HDMI cable, a HDMI cable, and of course the device itself.

      Click to Enlarge

      The front panel has a power button, as well as plastic cover hiding the IR receiver and VFD display. Two USB ports, the SD card slot, and a recovery button can be found on one of the sides, with the other ports on the rear panels including a USB OTG port (full size), a micro USB port market USB HDD, an optical S/PDIF audio output, 3 RCA connector for video, left and right audio, a HDMI 2.0 port, a Gigabit Ethernet port and the power jack. The gap under the box should allow for some cooling of the hard drive.
      If you want to connect the hard drive, you’ll need open the cover on the bottom of the case. There’s also a sticker with a MAC address starting with 00:11:6E and looking up to Peplink International Ltd.

      Installing the hard drive is very easy and does not require any tool. Two clips hold the back cover to the case, and then you just need to insert the HDD in the bay, and push it to plug it into the SATA connector. Put the cover back, and you’re done. Ebox T8 V Teardown


      The first step to open the device is to loosen the four screws on the bottom of the case. This will allow you to remove the plastic cover on the front panel, and then push and slide the device to take it out of its outer shell.

      Click to Enlarge

      The board is called U PLUS V1.1, and features a heatsink covering Amlogic SoC. Foresee NCEMBSF9-16G eMMC flash is used for storage (16 GB), while two NANYA NT5CB256M16DP-EK chips are used for memory on the top of the board.

      Click to Enlarge

      Gigabit Ethernet is made possible thanks to Realtek RTL8211F Gigabit transceiver and HS2401 magnetics, and WiFi connectivity relies on an uncommon module, but I could not read the exact model. Since Amlogic S912 does not integrate a SATA controller, the board designer used GL830 USB 2.0 to SATA bridge. TM1628 chip takes care of the VFD display, and GL850G USB 2.0 hub adds a few extra USB interface required by the board.

      That’s all for today. If you are interested, the box is for sale directly on Entertainmentbox.com for 104.99 GBP ($129.5)with the standard remote, and up to 217.97 GBP (~$269) with full options including a 1TB HDD, Rii i12 Keyboard, and an Ipega gamepad. The package I received should cost 185.97 GBP (~$229). Prices include VAT.

        They aren't going to sell many of those other boxes in the UK for those prices and with all the court cases and attention focused on 'Kodi boxes' right now, they are likely to get themselves hauled before the beak unless they stop providing the fully loaded options.

            Kodi loaded very quickly there and I see there is the promise of Nougat, so that will peak some interest.

                WiFi module is the same as that used in the Beelink R68II, I think it shares compatibility with the AP6335(speculation).
                Khadas VIM(S905X), Beelink R68 II(S912), GOLE1(Intel Z8300), NEXBOX T10(Intel Z8300), Ugoos UT3(RK3288) and UT3+(RK3288), R-Box(RK3229-2GB/8GB), Tronsmart S95 Meta(AMLS905), Inphic i7(S905), UBOX(AMLS805), Q7(RK3188T)
