the X20 is a big box, it has a width of 43cm and fit with most consumer receivers.

The Zidoo x9S and X10 are very small when they are side by side.

Hello all,

After a few months of absence I had the opportunity to install the latest FW on the X20 pro, the animations on the main page are nice, it's the kind of details that I appreciate, I also tried HT 2 version 2.2.8, there is progress in the scan of movies, it works better even if there are still some problems as with the collections movies for example, information that I told Zidoo several months ago.

The picture quality is excellent and the banding is less noticeable compared to the very first FW of June 2018, Bravo.

Overall, there is progress, we see that the Zidoo team is working hard to improve the user experience, and to give satisfaction to his customers

For information I also have a apple TV 4K with infuse pro 6.

I will come back to give my feelings after a few days of use

Hi all,

It is just my opinion,

The price seems expensive but it is not the case, compared to similar devices and without giving any brand or model, the price of zidoo is competitive, i think it will be a success for Zidoo...once again :)

As i said before, the finish of Zidoo X20/PRO is good.

The remote control is pleasant to use, nicely fits in the hand, I have nothing to report particular about it, i like it a lot.



the VFD of the X20 is the same as the X10 and it is a good choice from Zidoo, I like it a lot on the X10.



See you

Zidoo is like a fine wine, it improves over time!

I'm going to repeat myself but....

Zidoo provides excellent value for money, this does not come from me but from the owners of zappiti or Dune multimedia boxes that offers similar performance for twice the price or more... and who return to Zidoo.

Currently I use the X20 pro with the new FW 2.2.85, ( and for your information I also use an Apple TV 4K with infuse pro 6 and i can compare both devices).

I just changed my TV, I have a Sony AG9 OLED 77 '' and the PQ is fantastic with the X20 Pro (in fact with all zidoo RDT1296).

---------------------------

- I do not see any color banding on my movie (The martian movie for example)

- About the scrape with HT 2.0, it is very very fast and finds 99% of my videos

- Additional options to best manage the HDR format

- BD menu support is working properly and it seems to me that the loading is faster than before.

---------------------------

In my humble opinion, what is missing at Zidoo / HT 2.0 (it is not a dealbreaker) :

- Posters with better resolution / quality, those of infuse are superb.

- Navigation between each posters more softer / faster.

For everything else, HT 2.0 offers additional features, supports more audio format, more function...

See you

Hello everyone,,

I just checked the problem of color banding on my old TV to be sure, it is now in the basement my son uses it with his Xbox one.

For your information :
It was with this TV that I saw a problem of color banding after an update more than 1 year ago and we were many to see this problem... I warned the Zidoo team of this problem at the time and also on all my thread on different forum.

Today, I'm just saying that this problem is gone, I do not see banding any more with the same TV and the same video file...



so I guess the zidoo team did a good job, because I do not think it's a miracle.

some TV brands are better than others for displaying color gradients,
which explains why some people will always have a problem of color banding, but the problem will not come from the zidoo.
