“REVIEW: MINIX NEO U1 & MINIX NEO A2 Lite, I am amazed at how strong the wi-fi is, Quality quality product”

Obtained this on the off chance, i was after a second box for a further home right after formerly using a fireplace adhere i realised promptly i required also also change the fire adhere with a person of these so i acquired yet another. I was pleased with the firestick until i acquired these. Wow what a big difference they are quick very simple to established up, tiny, great make top quality. This is a excellent device and made use of for kodi it is second to none. No lag, no audio sync difficulties urtra brief lookup moments. Superb photo excellent the list goes on. Can also be applied as a mini computer sharing pics from sub hhd drives and the like. If you are on the lookout for a media centre you have discovered the ideal in the company. Minix offer you terrific products and solutions the a2 distant is also fantastic.

I purchased this box to give android television set containers just one very last shot as the earlier one particular i owned was a disappointment. What a distinction this a single is basic to setup and update, slick responsive interface and tons of help and assist on the corporation forum. I use it primarily for streaming to a television set and to a projector. The excellent of the movie playback even on the the projector is excellent. I had challenges with google participate in retailer on very last box and couldn’t down load apps and so on but not with this one particular. I got the air mouse to go with it and that to is a pleasure to use.

Outstanding this the 2nd ideal box out, there only one factor that beats it that is nvidia defend, but it truly is a fantastic box for the value operates all tv set demands and can engage in outdated games much too,.

Really pleased with my to start with ever obtain of an android box. Reasonably straightforward to established up & loads of assistance on line in discussion boards for anyone who wishes to know a lot more about the merchandise. Would advocate to anybody looking to purchase their 1st android box.

Fantastic solid speedy android television set box. I get speeds of 130 over wifi and 200 by means of ethernet. No buffering on any on-line hd video clips. Android capabilities are perfect: playstore, browsing, gaming etcetera. Tip: use minix air mouse (which is also exceptional) and in kodi the delete button on keyboard has typical again perform (this will make sense when you are making use of it).

Fast shipping merchandise as shown 10/10.

I am stunned at how powerful the wi-fi is, my router is upstairs, been using this system for downstairs living area and when streaming i get no buffering or lag so i am genuinely impressed, incredibly simple to established up and use, the remote appears to be like gorgeous, feels wonderful in the hand but extremely irritating with air mouse simply because as shortly as you push okay it does not execute as an air mouse anymore so you have to retain pressing air mouse functionality just after you push the okay button. It appears smaller sized than predicted with a really long and extensive antenna. The box seems to be gorgeous i really like the blue led mild when it is switched on, not distracting and it has a purple led gentle when it is in standby manner , like the minix symbol on major of the box, my other cause why i will never give it whole marks is since i can not identify exactly where to clean up the cache specially when i am streaming a apk out of kodi. Also i am nervous how prolonged this device will last mainly because kodi retains switching and upgrading and this box will not, so considerably i am working with kodi 17. 4 krypton and i am fearful with the upcoming kodi improve this device will be out of date, the buyer assistance with this gadget is basically non existent and its not upgradebable so if minix could type that out it will be a shut contender to the nvidia defend. I would information any one pondering of acquiring this to get the minix neo u9 alternatively.

Has that quality experience, reliable packaging, rubber casing and not cheap plastic. The stock version of android is exactly where this excels. Enables the installation of approximately any app on the engage in retail outlet. Also enables the use of vpn’s,personalized launchers & dwell wallpapers. It would get 5 start but minix allow them selves down by bundling the a2 lite and not the a2, which has voice. If i was informed of the a2 i would’ve paid that little bit a lot more or selected a bundle with it.

Experienced a wd hub stay for ages and it died ultimately, chose this just one right after ton of soul looking and beloved it because driven it on for the very first time, a2 lite is a everyday living saver with appropriate qwerty keyboard, processing sensible quite fast and effortlessly handles massive hd movie information.

I purchased this for my retired moms and dads for christmas and they are blown absent by how easy it is to use and the top quality of the item. It can take a couple of minutes to set up kodi, glance it up on you tube. Even though perhaps some literature about location this up would have been great in the box. My mum in particular located the gyro mouse in the controller very practical and my father definitely liked the qwerty keyboard constructed in the back again of the distant, helpful for rapid searching. It is a robustly crafted unit with a pretty good designed in wifi receiver. I would propose this device to any one trying to get to get a multi media box. But make sure you purchase it from minix them self’s so you do not get a low cost remote with it ( the smaller remote arrived packaged inside the box as effectively, whilst not described in the item description ).

This is a great android box. It is the first one i have purchased and i investigated them for fairly a when before obtaining and i am not dissatisfied. Construct high-quality is impressive and anything about it feels high-priced. It is super rapid at every single function and related to my wifi straight absent. I have set up the most up-to-date version of kodi on it and have established up an emby media server from my laptop for streaming which functions perfectly. The supplemental distant with the air mouse is a have to have.

I want to enjoy it but it truly is not a huge improvement around the x8hplus other than 4k at sixty and ten little bit video clip. Even at that, when viewing ten little bit 4k online video, if you want to skip forward be prepared for a 30 second wait although it does what it needs to do right before actively playing your video clip. This is with local video clip saved on a nas working with gigabit lan and cat 6a cable and utilizing the advised (and newest) minix edition of xbmc as a substitute of kodi – so i doubt quite substantially it is my set up. With any luck , such difficulties will get ironed out in long run firmware upgrades.

This is my second android television box. The initially a single i purchased was one of people low cost android containers with a truly dodgy interface and which endured frequent reboots. In any case, the minix box is precisely how i imagined an android television box ought to work. It is rather rapid, quite stable, has a quite superior consumer interface and all the applications i have tried using get the job done great with the exception of plex which has a seem difficulty. I managed to overcome this by utilizing the created in android online video player instead of the one particular created into plex. Normally spotify, google audio and netflix function a take care of. (i will admit that the netflix ui on the apple tv is nonetheless superior than the a person for minix but i can are living with that)there looks to be regular software updates as nicely. (two in the final thirty day period) my old android box was never up-to-date in a whole year. The minix box is income very well expended.

Excellent product or service, excellent selection.

To start with off, i might like to issue out this is my 2nd purchase of this product or service. I have been looking for a streaming remedy for two areas of my house, specifically my entrance room and bedroom. Using an 8tb nas (network hooked up storage) attached to my router via lan cable, i am in a position to stream any of my video clip, pics and songs information close to my property. I was working with kodi as my primary movie streaming software and thus i am well versed with the software. I was really amazed with the simple fact that minix’s individual internal progress staff build’s it’s own proprietary model of xbmc based on jarvis at present with new versions ie krypton established in the long run. Simply because minix results in it truly is possess growth of xmbc, the software is stable and i can ensure is bug free at the time of creating this critique. The os is at present lollipop with long run upgrades on the horizon to move to either marshmallow or nougat as the team experience in good shape. Irrespective of the os becoming an more mature os, it is bug free and runs something i have been ready to set up and use. Kodi/xmbc has no concerns at all due to inner improvement of the os and xmbc itself, a really crucial thing to consider when shopping for a new android television box. The updates and functions are dependent on both equally progress workforce and local community primarily based requests.

    One of the best android boxes for kodi there is. Rock solid performance and great remote on the a2 lite. Firmware updates are also regular if any bugs and support from minix is supurb. I’ve had cheap android boxes and firesticks and the 2015 fire tv box (which is also great). I use the minix every day as my no. 1 device and it’s been flawless, sadly the weak pound has pushed up prices but nothing touches this apart from an nvidia shield. If i played games i’d have a shield but i do not so minix for my needs is simply the best. Works with netflix very well, and also stb emu magbox emulator. Also perfect player app as most of my use is kodi with iptv. Superb menu so no need to side-load anything.

    I am amazed at how strong the wi-fi is, my router is upstairs, been using this device for downstairs living room and when streaming i get no buffering or lag so i am really impressed, very simple to set up and use, the remote looks beautiful, feels nice in the hand but very annoying with air mouse because as soon as you press ok it does not perform as an air mouse anymore so you have to keep pressing air mouse function after you press the ok button. It looks smaller than anticipated with a very long and wide antenna. The box looks beautiful i love the blue led light when it is switched on, not distracting and it has a red led light when it is in standby mode , love the minix logo on top of the box, my other reason why i won’t give it full marks is because i can’t locate where to clean the cache especially when i am streaming a apk out of kodi. Also i am worried how long this device will last because kodi keeps changing and upgrading and this box doesn’t, so far i am using kodi 17. 4 krypton and i am worried with the next kodi upgrade this device will be obsolete, the customer service with this device is basically non existent and its not upgradebable so if minix could sort that out it will be a close contender to the nvidia shield. I would advice anybody thinking of getting this to buy the minix neo u9 instead.

    1. Really liking this box so far. Have used it for a few weeks now and it’s far better than the previous box. The previous device was just a cheap andriod tv box as i wanted to check out if kodi was any good. This new box is more stable and much quicker and has a nice launcher which is easy to use. The keyboard on the back is amazing and having the air mouse built-in means you can use it when an app doesn’t support key navigation. All in all, really please with this for the money. I looked into many of the others and glad i chose this one in the end.

    1. This is a great android box. It is the first one i have bought and i researched them for quite a while before purchasing and i am not disappointed. Build quality is impressive and everything about it feels expensive. It is super fast at every function and connected to my wifi straight away. I have installed the latest version of kodi on it and have set up an emby media server from my pc for streaming which works perfectly. The additional remote with the air mouse is a must have.

    First off, i’d like to point out this is my 2nd purchase of this product. I have been looking for a streaming solution for two areas of my house, namely my front room and bedroom. Using an 8tb nas (network attached storage) attached to my router via lan cable, i am able to stream any of my video, pictures and music files around my house. I was using kodi as my main video streaming application and therefore i am well versed with the application. I was very impressed with the fact that minix’s own internal development team build’s it’s own proprietary version of xbmc based on jarvis currently with new versions ie krypton created in the future. Because minix creates it’s own development of xmbc, the application is solid and i can confirm is bug free at the time of writing this review. The os is currently lollipop with future upgrades on the horizon to move to either marshmallow or nougat as the team feel fit. Regardless of the os being an older os, it is bug free and runs anything i have been able to install and use. Kodi/xmbc has no issues at all due to internal development of the os and xmbc itself, a very important consideration when buying a new android tv box. The updates and features are based on both development team and community based requests.

What a difference this one is simple to setup and update, slick responsive interface and lots of help and support on the company forum. I use it mainly for streaming to a tv and to a projector. The quality of the video playback even on the the projector is excellent. I had problems with google play store on last box and couldn’t download apps etc but not with this one. I got the air mouse to go with it and that to is a joy to use.

  13. I’ve purchased/used a few lower priced android boxes to date and to be brutally honest i’ve always felt a little underwhelmed by them. The u1 though (whilst a leap in the dark thinking nothing might actually change from my usual online experience) really is worth the higher price tag. My experience with the u1 to date is a much more robust wi-fi signal, and as a result very few buffering situations and just the whole feel of a quality build from the outer packaging to the media box itself.
