Don’t Buy a Chromecast Ultra: Buy THIS

by birtanpublished on August 25, 2020

I've been streaming on my chromecast ultra for about a year now it's fast it's easy I can cast 4k HDR content directly from my TV and I paid $70 for it when it launched but I recently just picked up a me box s by Xiaomi in this tiny little box and it has a chromecast

Ultra built-in it's a full set top box and it games and it costs less so there has to be a catch right the me box s retails for $60 but I've seen it on sale as low as $40 so make sure you check the link below for current pricing and at

That price this is really the king of budget streaming boxes when you pick one up everything that you need is in the box the me box s of course and you also get an HDMI cord which you don't always see

In these type of packages especially at this price the power brick and you also get a remote which is nice and there are a few dedicated buttons on here and a microphone for voice control so you can control your TV and your smart home with

Google assistant which is a nice bonus the setup is really easy to is just step by step you sign in with a Google account get it on the Wi-Fi network and that's pretty much it it is running the newest interface of Android TV at the

Time of this video it's running Android 8.1 but with project treble support by the time you see this it'll probably have Android 9 Pi the interface is cleaned up a lot on Android TV and you will be happy to know that the

Performance is nice and snappy moving to the UI and of course you have Netflix and Hulu and YouTube but you can pretty much download whatever you want from the Play Store besides prime video I'm not sure why maybe you can sideload it but

4k HDR content plays back smooth and I haven't had any issues so far even though this is the same quad-core processor paired with the 2 gigabytes of RAM that was on the last meat box the performance is still adequate if you

Have a Bluetooth gaming controller you can definitely take advantage of it you have a decent selection on Android TV lighter titles you will be just fine on the meet box s like Leo's fortune this is such a good game still and it's very

Smooth on this but some more demanding titles like the new asphalt might not be the best experience but it's definitely playable but that's to be expected at this price point something like the Nvidia shield

Will gain better for sure but will cost you more than double or triple the price of this thing so keep that in mind so with all of the things that the me box s offers it's got to be an instant buy right well for most people I say yes if

You're looking for a 4k set-top box with the chromecast ultra built in and you were in the market for a chromecast Ultra anyway then yes but here's the catch if you're an AV enthusiast you might want to think about it first

The me box s supports HD are 10 but does not support they'll be vision and it does support Dolby audio and DTS HD but it does not support Dolby Atmos so if you care about that then you might want to think twice the ports are limited

Even though I think for a basic user it'll be just fine there's a single USB 2.0 port that could be used for Wired gaming controllers and better yet external storage because this only has 8 gigabytes of internal storage but that's

Pretty easy to expand for cheap I just wish that it was USB 3.0 or faster and USB C would have been nice as well also for people that use it it would have been cool to have an Ethernet port back there too that basically is the catch if

You don't care about those things this is one of those devices that just offer incredible value for what it is if you're in the market for a streaming 4k set-top box with the chromecast ultra built-in then by this don't buy the

Chromecast Ultra this does a lot more so if you think about it you can probably buy four of these for the same price that you have paid for one 4k Apple TV and I know it's not the same ecosystem I get it it's not on the same thing but

Think about it you could put four of these in your house for the price of one so that just goes to show you how good of a value this thing is I really hope Tommy makes more of these boxes in the future I would like to see a slightly

Higher price model with more ports more storage faster processor options it may be a few options to please the a/v community but I think Xiaomi is going in the right direction so I will leave a link down below for you if you want to

Pick one of these things up make sure you check current pricing you never know how low these things are gonna get and these are great stocking stuffers or great gifts for any occasion so I actually have an extra one that I don't

So just go ahead and leave a comment down below comment comment down below and let me know what you think about the me box s and subscribe for more like this give this a thumbs up if you enjoyed it and I will see you guys in
