I've been using the Mini MXII for three months and it's been very good, except for the noisy click of the remote. Three firmware updates since owning it. This has a better spec than the one I have. Highly recommended, go for it.
Specs looks great but something inside me tells me to hold out just a little while since it's so brand new with little reviews just to put my mind at ease.
^ you may be right but my thinking is if its not so good i could sell this a million times over

I can tweak these boxes to get them running sweet (kernel mods etc)

I have a crappy OTT M8s that runs as well as my friends Minix Neo U1

I doubt you'll get HD Netflix on this
Basically the same as the other deal for £26.50 apart from the gigabit Ethernet which you're unlikely to need even for 4k content.

These will keep getting cheaper as the S905 is about to be replaced with the S905X which has the proper DRM support needed by Netflix etc.

Kodi is a free, legal and opensource media player and doesn't give access to any content. I think you mean crappy illegal add ons not kodi.

Yep goes something like this.

Buys 1080p/4K TV, feeds it content with much less quality than VHS.
The amount of family and friends that do that and think it's cool is scary.
I aways buy physical media and sub to Netflix/Amazon Video as I want the best picture possible. It's like buying a 6TB hard-drive and only ever using 500mb, and knowing you will only use that amount before buying it....such a waste.

I've visited people's houses and watched films/tv shows that they have put on that look worse now than the 80's pirate video era.
I see that point of view, but then I also think that some of these boxes shouldn't have replaced HTPCs.
This is a better deal than the other one. Beelink are decent with their updates. Let's hope Gearbest doesn't let me down. Risky company.

Remember thsi is a pre-order.
You could be waiting 2-3 months for this to arrive ( not unknown for Chinese pre-orders as its very rare for them to be released on the stated date ).
When you can get boxes from UK suppliers for approx £33 delivered with the same main specs ( S905 chipset, 2GB RAM) , i don't think this one is worth the wait.

That only applies to the average user who mostly are clueless

'We' who know what's what will get the best out of these boxes

Cheers dude yeah I'm willing to wait as it is Beelink and already using a firestick at the moment so there's no rush. Can you link me on the boxes you mentioned from the uk?


Edited by: "Naruto" 20th Apr 2016
Shhh. Don't tell everyone about realdebrid.
Voted hot - I'm looking for something that can run Kodi and NowTV to replace my firestick and NowTV boxes.
Less Remotes will please the missus.
ordered.

Don't think you can unless there's a standalone version of OpenElec for this particular model.
What remote would you recommend for this?
These any good as a plex media player?

Thinking plex app, wired, internet, remote, optical out?

Hmmm Don't need.
OP .. it would help a bit to mention the 16GB eMMC ROM that comes pre-installed on your Deal too?, lol. :-)
What's the difference between this and the beelink mini mx that I already own ?
Mine is the 16gb 2gb ram version...

Isn't OpenElec more specific to that of Raspberry Pi's?, moreso than that of Android Boxes instead then?, or ..... thanx. :-)

You know those places where people can host files but when you download them the free option is pretty slow and you can pay for premium? Well, RD gives you equivalent of premium for dozens of sites by them getting the onto their servers then giving you full speed download. It cost around £2.40 a month if you get it for 90 days.

Couldn't agree more, a lot of my friends does the same and when I try explain to them that the quality is of vhs they can't see the difference :-|

​you don't need Netflix if you have kodi


I've setup a box with Kodi and have wasted too much time clicking on dead links or waiting for something to stream - only to find it very poor quality or permanent buffering.

Spending £6 a month on Netflix and using Chromecast? No brainer.

I've been messing with it just over a month and from knowing nothing I can get any football match and all sky channels and all sorts in glorious 1080p with a couple of subscription bolt ons costing 12quid a month.

And again like my previous comment that only applies to the average user

Doing your homework on using these boxes is a 'no brainer' and thats applies to NOT spending £6 a month

I was impressed with the mini mx box with slightly lower specs I got from here for my old man a month ago. That was about £6 cheaper, but only 8gb. Going to give this one a go to replace an old Kodi PC I have in the bedroom

do you know when this is coming out?
Ive ordered one of these boxes
Any one know what version of kodi will be on it
Great deal, this box will actually let you use the features of the hardware like 4k and 10bit, a lot of cheapy boxes don't have firmware optimised for the hardware and lack after sales firmware updates and support in general. Many don't even give you proper 24p let alone 10bit.

As for the quality of the files, that all depends where you source them from. You can always use an addon that streams torrents or you know, download a file in any quality you like and then use the device to play it back from local storage....as long as you are legally entitled to download the file of course.

I hope you've never recorded something off the TV or recorded a song from the radio. If they come to your house to discuss your accusations and find out you have recordings of Eastenders on your sky+ box they will throw the book at you. you may still have time to bury it in the garden if you hurry.
