The X99 is a new Android TV Box built to play high resolution 4K UHD videos as well as games and other media.
 
It comes with some impressive hardware with the fast RK3399 CPU and 4GB of DDR3 RAM.
 
The RK3399 CPU is currently one of the fastest built for Android Boxes and has come down in price recently.

I installed Kodi 17.6 Krypton which used very little resources in System Info.
 
I also installed some of the current top Addons such as Neptune Rising which it had no problems with.

Testing the unit with Netflix it would only play standard definition due to Netflix restrictions.

Netflix requires a box be certified or it will only play 480p and not HD resolution.
 
While the X99 has the hardware to play HD 4K video Netflix streams will play at only standard definition.
 
Testing the WiFi I used SpeedTest.net Ookla App which gave some impressive results at 163Mbps Download, and 21Mbps Upload.

Summary
The X99 comes with some nice hardware for streaming videos and did not disappoint.
 
The AnTUTU score of 76606 is very good even higher than the Fire TV without the restrictions.
 
It will have no problem running Kodi, Netflix or most any other video streaming App.
 
I am still testing the unit so far with good results and will update if anything changes.
 
As always be sure to read the reviews on Amazon, forums, or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.
