Great unit, but missing the advertised Air Mouse remote control
on January 13, 2015
Great unit - high build quality, excellent specs. On the initial setup screen when you first power on the unit, you can choose the Mixin Metro launcher or a regular Android launcher. I choose the Android launcher, which looks identical to my Galaxy S5 smartphone screens. I love that I could choose such a familiar and comfortable interface for this Minix box. I added a bunch of stuff from the Google Play Store (gmail, google calendar, contacts list, Google search, Chrome browser, YouTube, etc) - it is like having a PC or cell phone with a giant 60" screen.
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!
