DigiXstream DX4 Review: A Strong Quad Core Android Media Box

A Review of the DigiXstream DX4

If you’ve been looking for a way of “cutting the cord” and saying goodbye to your local cable company, then you owe it to yourself to check out the new DigiXstream DX4, one of the finest entrants into the Streaming Media Player market. This is a Quad-core update to the earlier DigiXstream model, which was built around a dual-core architecture. The machine also comes with 8 Gigs of NAND Flash, standard. Here’s a quick look at what it is, how it works, and why you’ll love it.

How It Works

The DigiXstream DX4 is a dedicated streaming media player that plugs directly into your television using one of its HDMI ports. It uses the Android (Jellybean) Operating System, offers multi-lingual support, and comes pre-loaded with a variety of apps that allow you to tap into various libraries and collections of movies, TV shows, and sporting events from all over the web, all for free. One thing you’ll be thrilled with is the fact that this unit comes with XBMC/KODI pre-installed. This open-source social media player is the means by which so much of the free content you’ll find available comes to you, so it’s a huge win to have it installed and ready to go without your having to do anything.

There are some who worry about the legality of using streaming media players. They feel as though if they aren’t paying the cable company a monthly fee, then somehow they’re doing something wrong. Nothing could be further from the truth. So long as you’re using your streaming media player for your personal enjoyment, it is perfectly legal. Best of all, you get access to thousands of hit movies and popular programs in a bundle that’s heads and shoulders better than anything your cable company offers you, and the library of content is constantly expanding!

Note that you will need a relatively fast internet connection to make best use of this, or any media streaming player. The makers of the DigiXstream recommend at least 7Mbps, but of course, the faster your connection is, the better and smoother your overall viewing experience will be.

Setup

You don’t have to be a technical genius to get the device to work properly. All you’ve got to really do is plug it in, turn it on and follow the prompts. Yes, there are some add-on features that will require a bit more technical savvy to install and get working, but in order to start enjoying your favorite movies, shows, and sporting events, the basic setup couldn’t be easier. For the more advanced features, if you get bogged down somewhere, there are a variety of detailed tutorials on YouTube that walk you through absolutely every step, in real time, and the company has received glowing praise from customers regarding their excellent customer service and support.

What Customers Are Saying

In a survey of reviews across the net, we find that the DigiXstream DX4 gets overwhelmingly positive reviews. In fact, 73% of consumer reviews are positive (4 or 5 stars) with only 9% of the reviews being negative (1-2 stars), so if you’re interested in purchasing, you can buy with confidence, knowing that most of the people who have made the purchase before you are thrilled. Here’s what just a few of them are saying:

“Don’t hesitate – just get it!”
“Big improvement over the dual core model.”
“Very good – recommend connecting with the provided Ethernet cable, versus going wireless, as it’s faster that way.”
