3 out of 5 eggswanted more

Pros: FAST, must faster then my hope to replace WDTV Live. A lot more features then the WDTV could ever provide, and much more customizable too. Natural this is do to the Android OS vs whatever is built in with the WD. So party like its 1999, this device should last well into the future for many peoples needs (Media player, web, social, gaming).
Also, with the AirPin Pro app built in, you "can" show your iOS device on the screen and Andriod too. So saves you form needing an Apple TV and something else. It doesn't work perfectly, but the fact I could do it at all is a PRO.

Cons: Remote control (default IR). Sucks. No other way to say it. There is virtually nothing good about it. The fact that it does anything is remarkable, because its that bad. If you get the free RF remote, you will pretty much needed its all the time.
You can't use a universal remote with this like a logitech. Since the original remote sucks so bad (last play, FF, RW, Stop, Pause buttons), you can't even IR to IR to another remote to learn the codes. MAJOR deal breaker. My WD device works perfectly (however its SLOW, which is why I got this unit to replace it). The WD remote does everthing the device can do, and what can be controlled. Amazing that the MINIX can't, literally can't do these functions. How was this overlooked? If you want more functionality, you need to use the XBMC app (iOS or Android) to get more of the remote control features you should have already had with the basic remote.
Also, at least for my videos. I get an "extra" letter box bar at the top and bottom. Just so I am clear, these are 'EXTRA' not the normal letter box bars in many movies. Which are also not centered properly. I have to manually fix this for each movie, every time. Again, this isn't something you fix once to properly adjust XBMC (app) to your screen. It's almost the same process, but for EACH movie I have, every time. I have to basically ZOOM the picture while watching it, then bring it back to original or normal to have the 'extra' black bars go away.
This system locks up (too frequently for me). Not completely shut down and reboot. More like a hang for about 10 or so seconds. Hasn't done this while watching anything. Mainly while going thru the menus and settings.
Lastly the 2.5TB external drive support is ridiculous. MINIX needs to update to fix this immediately.

Other Thoughts: I want to love this thing so bad. My negatives are just out right deal breakers. It is a good unit for what it should be able to do. I can't for the life of me figure how an old WDTV Live does a better job of managing and playing media (not 4K) better, and easier then this brand new piece of hardware. How it can lack such basic remote control support, super basic! It RIPS thru your video files no problem. I love how fast this thing is and when right, IS what I want my media player to be. I just can't use it properly yet. Lets not even get on the NETFLIX suck at 480p no matter what issue. That is widely known yes, but still, hack that or something to make it work at 1080p.

I'm ranting on this. Again, if you have many other uses for this device, it may very well work good for you.

1 out of 5 eggsWrong item, poor customer service procedures

Pros: I have been unable to use this item because it is not what I ordered.

Cons: I ordered the Minix NEO X8H and the Minix companion mouse. The delivery was quick. The mouse I received was the wrong one it was made by Zenith. I contacted customer service and the process was so convoluted that I was unable to make only the exchange of the mouse. I have purchased a great many things from Newegg and have been extremely pleased with both the products and the service. This not what I have come to expect and am frustrated and disappointed.

1 out of 5 eggsA strike out

Pros: When it works, the RF operation of this remote works pretty well and is responsive.

Cons: The battery life will not even last through a full day of use. It has a built in rechargeable battery so you can't even swap out for a new battery if one dies half-way through your movie. The air mouse functionality is very poor and requires constant calibration. The power button only works via IR not RF like the rest of the buttons so you will still have to have your device out in plain sight. Kinda defeats the purpose of having a RF remote.
