2 out of 5 eggsStill not good enough

Pros: More features than you'll need.

Cons: Internal flash IO is very slow, its as if your running of a usb or sd card.
After a few weeks is will slow to a crawl until you reset the device. Software, like all these devices is buggy.
Controller sucks even with third party HIDs (again like most of these devices)

Other Thoughts: ONLY for tech savvy folks, DO NOT get this for your wife or parents they will hate it.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent product

Pros: Nice little Android box. I have not done much besides load Netflix so forth onto it and used it to stream.

Cons: Built in wifi is very choppy when streaming movies and other media. If you hook it up to a wired connection everything streams smoothly.

5 out of 5 eggsgood but over priced for compared to whats out now

Pros: good wifi fast and easy set up and open use with xvmc but not as fast as fire tv but all in all its way better than net flix and having to download tv shows xbmc is the bomb and don't spend $$$ on apple tv its a waste of money

Cons: over price that oyna and fire tv have better hard wear for less

Other Thoughts: id go with a oyna or a fire tv for the price you can get oyan for like $50-60 on sale and fire tv is faster and only 100

4 out of 5 eggsBest on the Market, right now

Pros: Better than my phone on my TV.

Cons: My only gripe is I have to reboot it about once a week, it just hangs in XBMC. However, with that said, I use if for all kinds of stuff. Everything from combining my analog cameras through the DVR and my IP cameras to XBMC for a free cable TV experience. Oh, the remote is almost point less. Get the A2 remote.

4 out of 5 eggsNot sure yet

Pros: It suns most apps pretty smooth.... its low power compared to my desktop so if i just want to browse the web or stream video I don't have to worry about using too much electricity.

Cons: The remote that comes with it is absolutely terrible. It doesn't work inside of most apps.

Other Thoughts: more to come after i get the air mouse I bought for this in the mail and fiddle with this some more. I have played some snes games on it and it ran pretty good.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

Pros: Minix has just released new XBMC software for the Minix Neo 7 and the Minix mini . The software works very well. Its is a well build machine , lots of ports , great wifi reception on the Neo 7 with the external antenna . Works well with a wireless mouse and the included remote , you need to use both in unison with each other to make the XBMC program work well.

Cons: The Minix will not work well with my home theater like my mac mini does . I have to run the HDMI cable to the 50 plasma , in order for it to run well. If I wire to the home theater box , the picture cuts out for a second or 2 ever minute or 2.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend to this box to anyone who wants to run XBMC , just keep in mind , for now it has to be wired straight to the monitor. I have been unable to find a fix for this in the settings , if someone is able make it work through the Home Theater box , I would like to know.

3 out of 5 eggssomething still missing

Pros: good hardware spec and construction. generic android box provide great potential. good video quality and streaming from android/ios works fine.

Cons: the remote control come with the device is terrible and almost useless. battery locking tab broken after first use. The remote apps for android device from MiniX seem much better. However it is still not as polished as free xbmc controller apps.

Other Thoughts: As most of other users, i am playing to use this box as xbmc media server and streaming a/v to this box from android/ios devices. i can see it has a great potential but not as easy to use as other consumer products.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Product But....

Pros: The rockchip Quad Core 1.6Ghz CPU makes for a zippy little device along with the quad core GPU. This can be used as a stand alone computer for basic needs such as email, web browsing, productivity, and light gaming. No need for a large desktop this can replace it for light tasks its fast enough for everyday use. Three USB ports is a plus, plus a fourth if the OTG port is used.

Cons: Could have given 5 eggs, but the unit I got was not new. The plastic protective film that covers the unit was actually peel off and the unit had finger prints on it. Seems that I got either a demo or someone likes to tamper with items before shipping.

Other Thoughts: The unit I got was either tampered with or was a demo, all the protective films on the device was taken off and the box wasn't sealed when I received it. I had higher expectations from new egg but this was a let down. All in all the device works except that the remote doesn't function at all.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Supported Community - Not Ready For Mainstream Yet

Pros: Good Build Quality. Pretty quick hardware. Good outside community support.

Cons: I bought this with the intention of having just a XBMC media player. I soon discovered that I was jumping into custom roms and multiple versions of XBMC. Had to use a custom rom by justXBMC in order to get 1080p kernels to hardware decode, in order to get the video playback that I wanted with my NAS over a wired connection. Something I've done for 3 years plus with my WDTV Live. This device is not ready for mainstream. All of the problems seem to be fixed by outside developers and not Minix. Remote that comes with it is useless. One drop and the battery cover broke. You need the A2 remote in order to make any good use of this.

Other Thoughts: This will get better over the next few months has Minix is working with XBMC to have it's own version. Similar to Ouya.

1 out of 5 eggsNot Ready for Prime Time

Pros: Nice package and wireless antenna. This unit might someday become a mainstay at which point maybe Netflix and Hulu Plus will actually be fixed. Until then a Chromecast is required to use Netflix without the freezing.

Cons: Really unstable, and does not always power up from remote. Freezes frequently which requires unplugging the power cable as even the reset button does not work. The included remote is almost useless. The Android Tablet or Smartphone application helps but I had to find this on my own. Really poorly supported. Even with the app it still required a two handed approach with the included remote to work where the Android app doesn't. Netflix runs no more than a few minutes before freezing video, and Hulu Plus just crashes on launch so who knows how it would work if it actually launched.

Other Thoughts: Descent Hardware, but poor OS Support, and to really get this to work you have to be a hacker willing to do your own ROMS
