Zidoo X9 Media Player review

2. Unboxing the player

The Zidoo X9 can be purchased online at Geekbuying and Amazon for $139.99 and $129, respectively.. Below you see the retail box of the device:

Zidoo have provided everything you need to get started. Inside the box,  you have:

  • 1 x Zidoo X9 box
  • 1 x Chinese / English instruction manual
  • 1 x IR remote
  • 1 x 12v 2A power adapter (110~240V 50cm )
  • 1 x HDMI cable (60cm)

We were surprised to see no batteries included.

Roughly the size of a 7 inch tablet (187 x 127 x 27 mm ), the X9 crams all of its internals into a unibody aluminum chassis. The metal case is finished nicely, with subtly chamfered edges.

The front panel includes just a small LCD panel in the center, which is used to communicate the device status such as boot, in addition to displaying the time during operation. With the latest available firmware installed you cannot dim or even disable the LCD display for those who fight find it a bit flashy when they watch movies.

At the bottom, we will find the product ID and ventilation holes.

Most of the available ports are located at the back. Flanked by two large WiFi antennas (not removable), the ports are the power switch, 10/100 Ethernet (no 1Gigabit), Optical Audio, the Reset Button, HDMI In, Composite Video out, HDMI Out and DC In.

On the sides of the unit, one side houses 2 USB 2.0 ports, 1 USB3.0 port, some vents and the microSD card slot.


The remote control is looks typical and its layout should be familiar to anyone who had already access to other Android TV players. Using a remote wireless keyboard instead would make typing experience easier.
