Hisense Pulse Pro Android TV Review [video] by SomeCoolTech

"This was my favorite thing (that I could afford) at CES 2014. Its an Android TV box that preforms very well. Its UI is lightning fast and the remote is the most usable remote I've found so far. I will be buying one as soon as it comes out. When it becomes available I'll put a link to it here in the description below.

This has the same version of Android TV that comes in Hisense's high end 4K TV with Android TV but you can get it in an inexpensive box."
