So here we have yet another high-end RK3399 TV box, and this time it’s the RKM MK39 hexa core TV box. We have seen developers launch boxes in the past on this chipset like the Yundoo Y8, H96 Max, CSA96, the R99 and the list goes on. Many of these boxes have have fallen short in the area of managing heat which resulted in users having to use passive cooling fans to maintain a safe operating temperature. In this review you will see how the MK39 manages to control this issue and deliver a stunning high performing TV box experience.

Final Thoughts

I really like the RKM MK39 for its high performance and user experience. Online streaming is very good, 4K video playback is also very good. The user interface is smooth and responsive, you have a navigation bar and status bar and the box is rooted. To me, what left an impression on me was the 3D gaming performance of this box and how it handled gaming without overheating. On the flip side all I could think of, was that it comes with an infrared remote control and I couldn’t get the right permissions for my keymapping app to work. So for 2018 the RKM MK39 is one of the best TV boxes to by in my book.
