Minix Neo X8-H Ultra-HD Android media hub REVIEW

 

Even if you've found some 4K content, how can you play it? Minix's Neo H8 is one of the few ways at present...

Nice player, but terrible remote

 

I saw in a different review they have a different remote available. They should not even sell then small remote and only sell the decent remote.

Plays newer formats, lots of inputs Bought this to replace my older media player. Plays newer formats with no problem. Works great to play anything in my media library.

Terrible remote. difficult to find the right angle to control the player, and with only 11 buttons, it is not designed to control an android device, which is designed for a touch screen. So frustrating to do anything, trying to find the right way to...

Best XBMC box I've used

 

I had no problem streaming up to 720p on a G network but you'll need wireless N to do 1080p and above, especially if they are mkv file shares. It has an ethernet port so plugging it in is always prefereable if you can.

If it has Kitkat on it and the lastest XBMC this thing is fast, no menu lag, plays everything, rarely crashes out when an addon throws an error. It is visibly faster than an X7 with 4.2.2 installed. I have not tried netflix because I don't have an...

The remote is comes with is ok for most things, but you really want to have a keyboard. Minix sells an excelent airmouse remote with a keyboard, the A2-AIR2. For whatever reason newegg doens't carry this, it should be offered as a bundle. You can buy...

Pretty nice Android player

 

Love that I can do so much with this. I used to have a WDTV LIVE PLAYER in my bedroom which was fed my MKV collection from my LIVE HUB in the livingroom over a wired network. But that was all I pretty much used it for ( I don't use netflix or any of...

It came with the M! mouse controller wich is AWESOME because it doesn't need to be pointed at the box to controller it ie: navigation and volume BUT I noticed it was making the MINIX box REBOOT occasionally which was bad. The included infrared...

HW excellent, Mouse twitchy, Firmware not there yet.
