BE AWARE: This is the 2nd Minix Neo x8-H box I have purchased from Amazon in the last month. Both were advertised to include an Air Mouse remote (item title said "WITH NEO M1 Airmouse included by MINIX US"). However, neither unit arrived with the advertised Air Mouse. To control the Minix I ended up buying a Logitech K400r wireless keyboard with touchpad - this works GREAT, and the full-size keyboard makes it so easy to enter search text, do email, etc. That keyboard is only about $20 on Amazon... an excellent deal!
I've done a ton of web searching to see if this can be upgraded to 5.0, but unfortunately the company has NO plans to release any firmware upgrades to 5.0 or anything beyond 4.4.
ALSO love Web browsing, sending emails and watching my home videos and pictures. Does practically everything my desktop computers does, from the comfort of my living or bedroom.
If you have an appetite for adventure, KodI is for you. If you are addicted to television, you won't like Kodi because it requires some user involvement.
For me there's just not enough content to justify keeping this. The Remote is HORRIBLE, it barely gets reception from 4ft away. After days of use with this I gave up, for the price I expected a bit more at least for the remote. If you do purchase this, make sure you get a different remote because the stock is a cheap, flimsy pos that can barely do basic functions. When it does manage work, it lags a ton. Make sure you have an android device ready to sub as your permanent remote.
Netflix - perfect
Hulu - this one is notorious for not working on android boxes and sticks due to them (rather lame of them actually) only allowing certain recognized devices and or chip sets being allowed to play their content. Well it works perfectly on this box I am happy to report, lets hope Hulu doesn't break it in a future release.
Crunchy Roll - OK so crunchy usually works on everything however again with the chipset and device encoding (this is a big deal as most droid sticks and boxes are generic and so not in some USA list of available devices) there are troubles with playing the "latest" episodes, as if they release a certain encoded version first and then go back and release a more backward compatible version? The end result is you cant watch that latest episode, it says your device is not supported for that version yet, I know damn well my droid stick can play it so this is very frustrating, Well this box plays them perfectly as well so another score for Minix!
Amazon Instant Video - Nope! Amazon is doing the whole device/chipset thing and therefore getting Instant Video to work is hit or miss, I have about 15 droid devices, so far only working on 2. Understand its not because they cant play it, its because they aren't reporting back that they are "Samsung galaxy blah blah" so the app says no, you cant play it, falsely. I'm pretty annoyed with this Amazon as I am Prime member.
Otherwise Crackle, etc works great, I haven't had any buffering issues, Plex is what I use for internal media streaming and not XBMC but Plex works perfectly. My internet is fast and hardwired to box using the Gigabit Ethernet port, a speed test from the box using Ookla showed 110/25mbps which is near my max- awesome!
I don't have a 4k TV to test that but in 1080 its a very smooth and nice picture, also the Audio to HDMI and headphone jack works at the same time, this is a awesome bonus for me as I output to surround receiver for Movies and for music I output analog to my vintage audio gear, I was hoping that this box would play out of both at the same time so I didn't have to touch anything when switching from Movies to Music and am very happy it does this! The signal is nice and clean out of the headphone jack as well so no noise introduced to my amps.
I don't play games on android so no report for how the graphics handle those sorry. I don't video chat either but will test a camera just to see and report back.
I also have a favorite little RF kb/mouse device that I use with my droid sticks so i haven't even tried the included air mouse remote,
All in all this is my best experience with a droid box so far, I have already recommended this one to friends.
The nvidia shield TV has 4 times the performance and only $50 more. I have retired this device to the living room for the Shield TV which I use as my primary android device now.
xbmc is tricky to configure and was not preconfigured at all, I am not sure what tweaks have been done on the version that was preinstalled but it didn't seem to be anything special so I don't understand what the advantage is to having it preloaded. This is a version back from the current stable kodi version, not sure what the advantage is to staying on that version.
