New players Zidoo Z1000 versus Egreat A8 Pro
« on: April 09, 2019, 11:04:48 AM »
I really like the look of both new players a lot.

The Z1000 is relative expensive though at € 441 compared with € 280,- for a Z10 player.

It is getting the FW of X20/X20 Pro for those liking that (GUI).
It is far closer to an X20 than to a Z10 as it is costing only slightly less € 48.,- than the X20

Physically Z1000 compares most to an Egreat A10 which is a lot cheaper € 339,- or the Egreat A11 at about the same price. All  having the same front  flap concept. The new Egreat A13 compares closely with an Zidoo X20 (Full size with dual bay) but is very high priced.

The Egreat A8 Pro is a down-scaled A10 (side-loader, 8G flash and simpler 2.4 G Wi-FI) but has all the other functional specs it needs to have.
One gets less ports than with the Zidoo 1000 but the price is right (well below A10) at € 279,- just like a Z10!

Looks good too and It is coming with Android 7. For me this is a real competitor for Zidoo Z10.

Having both Zidoo and Egreat platforms I can say they are actually close functionally. Released  a review of my Z9S today too which makes comparing easy as my A10/A11review was already published some time ago.

The Zidoo Z1000 PSU specs on the sales pages are wrong! It has an internal 12 V 5A earthed PSU. This is the correct size and will allow live HDD swapping.

Where are the 2x USB2 connectors? It should have 4x USB in total but see only 2xUSB3 on the side.
