Summary
The HK1 Android TV Box is a good unit for the price and will make a good basic media player.

It has no problems streaming 4K videos @60fps along with basic gaming.

If you are a big Netflix user it only streams at 480p since the box is rooted along with not much DRM support which Netflix requires.

The HK1 will have no problems playing Kodi or any add-ons and will make for a good Kodi box.

There are better Android TV boxes with better hardware but they do cost more and have a lot of features that may not be needed.

If you just need a basic Android TV box with fast WiFi that can play HD 4K videos the HK1 is a good unit.

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.
