The Powpro PBox PP-1000 Iron Plus is definitely an interesting looking media player.
The casing of the Powpro PBox PP-1000 Iron Plus introduces a new design, bold enough to raise a few eyebrows. The detail of the illuminated pattern is a nice addition.
I wonder if such illuminated star pattern on top of the Powpro PBox PP-1000 Iron Plus may -eventually- bother you in a dark room context. Hopefully not.
The somewhat awkward part of this tv box is it’s (current) price: About USD 130. You can check an up-to-date price by following this link into Amazon Store.
In all cases, the reviews found in the amazon store are encouraging enough: There are plenty of 5 star reviews from verified purchasers of the Powpro PBox PP-1000 Iron Plus which even post their own product photos.
Powpro PBox PP-1000 Iron Plus specs and considerations
