Despite the cheapo build, the User Interface is the best looking yet

The Alfawise H96 Mini is a cheap Mini TV or Android TV box that offers decent functionality and perhaps the only Box that offers 2 HDMI ports, HDMI IN and HDMI OUT.  It also has the best looking interface yet, a UI that is design for video streaming. You can navigate easy on the interface but it does not work properly though when a mouse is used, which is a bit disappointing. Anyway, Dual Band Wireless works fine, and overall the system works great but it isn’t optimized for web browsing, which is probably the only comment I can say about this box.

If you like a plug and play system and optimized for apps like Youtube and Netflix, then this box is for you. But if you want more versatility, like web browsing, it is quite difficult using this this, because the UI does not work properly with a mouse.
