In terms of hardware specs, I think this is one of the better Android boxes out there with decent hardware specs for the price. Just wished it had a bit more RAM so that it could compete more with the Nvidia Shield in that aspect (the CPU and GPU are also just a bit behind Nvidia Shield's but performance is ok overall, at a good fraction of the cost of the Shield, and it comes with a much much nicer controller than the Shield). You notice some lag and slow loading times when you have several apps open so at least 4GB of RAM could improve performance (although performance also depends on how well coded the Android fork version is). Also, it could include at least 32GB or even 64GB of internal memory, but since it has an SD card slot for adopted memory, 16GB is not so bad. Gaming performance is not bad but it doesn't compete with Nvidia Shield (although the Shield is aimed for gamers, both PC and Android gamers so better GPU performance in the Shield is expected).
USB 3.0 definitely would've been a nice addition (Nvidia Shield has 2 Type A USB 3.0 ports), especially when playing high bit rate, 60fps, 4K movies from external hard drives or when just moving lots of small files around from external into internal and vice versa (copying files from internal memory into PC via microUSB OTG port is pretty slow since it's only USB 2.0).
USB-C charging and data port would also be nice but that would be a bit overkill for this price range IMO.
The dual band 802.11 ac wifi antena + chip and ethernet chips are really good and provide the fastest speeds compared to other Android boxes out there and is super reliable: the range and reliability is as good as in my Android flagship (LG V20). I can stream 30GB+, very high bitrate, 1080p and UHD Blu-Ray rips (mkv format) via Asus AiCloud app from my Win10 PC to the MINIX and it works super well thanks to the 200+ Mbps downlink speeds.
The A3 controller is also very well, feels very premium (material construction)and the buttons are well placed and functional. One thing that MINIX has to add to this controller is the mutlimedia skip forward/backwards button pair. Currently, the play forward/backward buttons DON'T skip songs but only fast-forward or rewind videos in a very limited number of apps (i.e. side-loaded Netflix, Spotify, Hulu), so if you're listening to music in the background you have to switch to the app to change songs (or use the pulldown bar). Also, a mute button would be nice. Another super nice addition would be to add configurable buttons to launch favorite apps (I know that's hard to code in Android, especially with different launchers available but it's certainly doable)
One of the best Android boxes out there with some frequent glitchy performance but issues being solved as new firmware updates roll out. Good price-performance ratio and very nice alternative to the more restricted Android TV OS that comes in Nvidia Shield, which is pricier but does offer slightly better gaming and processing performance since Android TV OS is very lightweight and can handle multi-tasking much better.
So, if you want more of a "pure stock android" experience and the freedom to install more functional apps, and don't mind trading off some performance for that freedom, then the MINIX U9-H is a good buy.
Amazon and Apple media boxes just didn't cut it for me.
Lots of research led me to Minix Neo U9-H, and for the price and high specs, it was an easy leap of faith from the confines of Apple. I soon discovered a few methods of combining the two platforms. For example, a Google Store app called AirPin(Pro) was preinstalled and once activated, integrated nicely under Apple's AirPlay tab. There are many very familiar and some cross-platform mostly free apps available, and if you know anything about home networking, then ES File Explorer (preinstalled) will help you get connected. There's even cloud service options and access to your own personal cloud (NAS) if you research further in the explorer app.
The Minix has some unique hardware features, and there is an online forum, YouTube content, and website reviews that will help with the learning curve.
Be mindful that Minix features a new voice control remote (A-3), that does not come with the box. You will receive the basic remote, which will not serve your needs in the long run. Be absolutely certain of your purchase and spring for the A-2 or the A-3 later, if you just want the box. Trust me, you will be glad you did.
I received the box 1 week ago and I have been using it heavily with complete satisfaction.
I am a cord cutter. I use kodi and multiple Apk's on this device and everything is running smoothly. I have a 4k TV and I compared this device to the other 2 Minix devices.This device is the best one I have ever seen especially in running 4k content.
As compared to the u1 this U9-h has Android 6 is also super cool cause u can install apps on the SD card. So I inserted a 64 GB Sd card into the slot and now I have an android machine with 2gb of Ram and 80 gb of storage for the apps (native 16 + 64 sd card)
I also used the A3 remote and I compared it to the A2 lite I already have. I really enjoyed the A3 with its voice commands.
So to summarize let's see what are the pros and cons:-
- Easily updated
- Best 4k ever
- Android 6
- A3 mouse with voice commands
- Missing USB 3 port
- 4GB of Ram would be nice.
- Minix should get rid of the antenna
I love the air mouse and qwerty keyboard on the remote. It really helps while setting everything up.
