The Best Kodi Boxes of 2016





2016 is poised to be the year that Kodi comes up big. (You may remember XBMC of the past. Now it is called Kodi.)

Kodi is the ultimate media center for cord cutters. If you have a ton of content you want to watch on your TV Kodi is a great management tool to make it happen. What is the best device you can run Kodi on in 2016? Here is our list of the best Kodi devices on the market today.

Nvidia Shield

If you want something super powerful that plays games, runs Androids, and has amazing 4K HDR support check out the Nvidia Shield. It may really be the best Kodi box on the market today.

G-Box Q 2

If you want something cheaper the G-Box Q2 Android streaming player is impressive with 4K, quad core processor, XBMC/Kodi, and Android. The new G-Box Q2 is faster than the older G-Box Q with smooth video play and an attractive design from the box to the menus makes this a solid option for anyone looking for an Android or Kodi player. The best part is that the G-Box Q2 has a clean version of Kodi no skins or add-ons. It is also the bestselling Android set-top box on Amazon at the time of this post.

Element Ti4

The Element Android TV Media Box is the first box we tested that had zero setup required after we connected it to our TV and plugged it in. The Element Android TV box comes preloaded with apps, like Netflix, and a range of add-ons for Kodi/XBMC. When we plugged it into the TV the first time it just worked. If you need an easy-to-setup Android TV Box, the Element is one you need to look into.
