Summary
The Sunvell T9 is a good low-cost budget android TV box for streaming videos and other basic task.
 
It will have no problems playing HD 4K videos with Kodi and streaming from YouTube or Netflix.
 
It has only single band 2.4Ghz WiFi which was slow during testing. It would be best to run a wired Ethernet cable with the unit.
 
The slow WiFi could simply be the unit I got with others likely to have faster speeds.
 
For the money the Sunvell T9 will make for a good basic entertainment box.
 
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.

    Unless there is SOME price information on what the unit is going for? It is not very Helpful. Devices with the most recent version of Android and Either the Google Play Store installed and or Kodi 17.6 (Current) are going for about $75 US (Which I consider to be cheap). Usually, delivery takes two weeks or longer from China. But the bench-marks match the Specs.
