About Egreat A5 Media Player
Egreat is looking to emerge as one of the leading Android TV manufacturers in the market today. Offering powerful specifications and unique interface design, Egreat stands out in a crowd that is quite saturated with stock standard Android TV boxes. Egreat recently announced two new Android TV boxes in their product line-up, the A5 and the A10. Today we are going to take a look at the A5 which, on paper, offers great performance and specs.

If you’ve seen a previous model from Egreat you already know that they favor strong metal casings and they have lots of connectors – Egreat A5 will follow this path and will have an external SATA port, AV,optical and coaxial outputs, USB 3.0 and 2.0, HDMI 2.0, and SD card reader. The front LED dot-matrix panel is a nice touch also. Indeed, the device has everything you should find today on a flagship TV Box.

The Egreat A5 unboxing
The box design that looks professional and gives the product a nice premium look. On the front of the box there is the Egreat logo in white at the top left with the A5 product name to the right. Below there is a large striking image of a bird of prey which looks great. The gold/copper colour fits the black background perfectly. At the bottom right of the box there are the product feature icons.

As can be seen in the unboxing, the box content is quite succinct and includes the Egreat A5 Media Player with attached antenna (non detachable), HDMI 2.0a cable, AV coaxial cable, SATA + power combined cable, DC power adapter, a learning IR remote control and English User Guide. 

Egreat A5 First impressions
The Egreat A5 TV Box is a solidly made and looks aesthetically. The case is made of aluminum in black with Egreat logo on top cover. The case and the TV Box are doing a very good impression, looks like High-End model. TV Box is a really high quality. As we said at the beginning of his heart is HiSilicon Hi3798C V200 quad-core ARM Cortex A53 processor which supports 10-bit 4K*2K H.265/H.264 hardware decoding, 4K*2K UHD video playback / [email protected] and HD Audio (7.1CH) passthrough. Device runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop. On the front panel A5 TV Box has LED display, IR receiver and Power button. On one side there is a SATA 3.0 port and USB 2.0 port. On another side of the device there are micro SD card slot, USB 3.0 port and USB 2.0 port. On the rear panel are: S/PDIF optical audio, Coaxial, Composite AV, HDMI 2.0a, Gigabit LAN (RJ45), RST hole and DC jack. At the bottom of the device also you can see four corners of the small rubber to prevent slipping device. 

The Egreat A5 comes with a great quality IR remote control which is a pleasant change. We are generally used to seeing cheap remote controls packaged with Android TV boxes. The Remote control works via Infra-Red and is a nice size that fits your hand comfortable. It comes with all of the buttons that you should require including power buttons, android buttons, directional keypad, media playback controls and numerical buttons. The remote control also features learning functions so that you can map keys from other remote controls to the A5 remote.
