Boxee Box Teardown Review – Rivals Apple TV

At the end of last year we gave details of the Boxee Box, we had assumed that the device would be released in the first half of 2010, but we know how that went? The company worked alongside D-link, and the first thing you will notice is how odd its shape is, and this is the same story on the inside as well.

The best part about when a new device is launched is the teardown articles that iFixit send to me in my inbox. The first thing that the team noticed was its build quality, as it was a rival to the new Apple TV. iFixit also points out how the Boxee Box has a better quality than the new Logitech Revue Google TV device.

The downside to taking this apart is that the rubber base will never be the same again once you have removed it. From there the rest is easy, and having a separate power board is a good touch, as you do not need to replace the motherboard.

A Intel CE4110 processor keeps things running, and with a speed of 1.2GHz offers great performance. Also hiding away inside is 1GB of DDR3 SDRAM and 1GB of Flash storage. iFixit has given the Boxee Box a reparability score of 7 out of 10.
