I have a Beelink MiniMXIII (got it for just under £25 a month ago) - was thinking the same after reading the earlier Mini M8S thread! Probably best waiting for reviews to appear.

2GB of RAM. not good enough in my opinion even for 30 quid.

Thought that 99% were 2GB Ram, even top end models?

​Most are 2gb RAM. Should be more than enough to deal with media.

Err.. I just don't know how to answer that.
Depends what you are after doing with it? 2GB is more than enough for streaming in kodi. Main problem with these boxes is after sales support and firmware updates, there are some openelec builds out there for the 905 and hopefully libreelec soon. But they are unofficial.
Should get it for Xmas

Link an android box with more please.
will this model support amazon prime and now tv via Google Play?
Looks great for the price
With the new S905x chip, can someone clarify what this can playback that the the beelink mini mx iii (or other S905 boxes) can't? I did read the description but can someone just reclarify please

nvidia shield


Fair enough lol, but come on who is going to pay £150 or £30.

Nvidia shield is maybe worth it if you have an HDR 4k tv, although it seems this box does HDR too?
Edited by: "retrend" 30th Jun 2016
Seems a great price for the latest variant, although obviously reasonably unproven as yet. Anybody seen any other S905X options yet? Thanks.

You're commenting on an Android thread, not Windows.

Most Android media players have 1GB of RAM. The more expensive ones have 2GB. The NVIDIA Shield has 3GB of RAM but you pay more than £100 extra for the privilege (and of course, it's probably a tad more optimised software-wise though the Nvidia Tegra X1 chipset is well know for its own set of compatibility issues)

This is a stonking price for what it is, with Marshmallow and the 2GB of RAM. I only hope the WiFi issues with the original box have been ironed out in this version. I have that and apart from the WiFi and no HD on Netflix (common to all generic boxes), it still works perfectly.

Heated. Nice find OP.

Agree 2GB is more than enough for a media player, however if it cannot decode DTS as described in the Audio description then imho it's pretty useless as a media player (having to popcorn/convert DTS > AC3 get olds very quick!)

Interesting. I bought the previous version from Gearbest for about £38 quid.

I have had it for about 6 months and no issues with WiFi or any other problemse. Works fine. I have used it to watch football and apart from few occasions I have had no buffer issues either. I have the normal broadband not fibre.

​how you watching the football what apps etc? Cheers just bought one

​If you Google seo Michael then search that site, it has good guides for beginners.
​I agree with what you are saying 100% but I don't know how many people that will be a deal breaker for. Personally I am eyeing up a wetek hub, it's a bit pricey for what it is and only 1gb but read some good things about it and it has official openelec / libreelec support which is a big bonus.

It runs Android meaning you can run Netflix AFAIK.

Same here, bought the same deal but sadly Wi-Fi is shockingly bad, the reports evidently suggest problems with the Wi-Fi chip in some or the firmware. I flashed the wi-fi fix detailed around but this didn't have an effect. I took it apart and peeled the antenna away from the casing, and moved it around and there is a boost in connection if I hold it.
I ordered 1 on the 16th..hoping its here for christmas..

I've got my Beelink hard-wired, luckily I'm right next to the master socket, but not an option for everyone. (More to do with TalkTalk's crappy "Super Router" which fails to even be average, wi-fi dropouts a go-go).

My Android box and Raspi 2 both run Kodi and stream with Powerline boxes no bother.

I just got the Beelink MiniMXIII as my first android box and I have to admit I absolutely love it. What a bit of kit for just over £30 (from EU warehouse).

Isn't the Beelink MiniMXIII better than this one considering it has a 1000Mbit LAN port + 16GB eMMC for £31? genuine question, not trying to be smart.

EDIT: I just realised that this box has Android 6 as opposed to 5.1 on the MiniMXIII

MiniMXIII An ebay seller had it for just under £25 (£24.40 to be precise) a month ago but he price has went up by about a fiver now http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/121971026711

The Beelink sounded more appealing as it gets OTA updates, and they make OEM boxes (that's what I've read, anyway).

I will add myself to that question as I'm undecided on what to order.

Cheers!
