Linux Minix Neo X8-H review
#53
Decided to get one of these, a very brief "review"
1) Hardware performs very well no complaints and XBMC runs well too. For those who have a H.264, DVD/BD collection sitting on a NAS and not fussed about 24hz stuff it's fine for job.

2) Dolby/DTS pass-through works, dont know if HD audio pass-through works as I dont have HD sound system.

3) The Android skin they have on it is basic but usable, it's really just app drawers even though they look like MS metro tiles.

4) My biggest complaint is the remote, no media buttons of any kind so you have to bring up the OSD to pause or stop video, if your like me and get interrupted a lot this is not so good. MiniX do sell an RF remote which I also bought with it and this actually has play/pause so it's a lot better and much more responsive. If you plan on getting one get the remote, the RF remote does cause a cursor to appear in XBMC when using the back button but you can hide it at the bottom edge of the screen and it stays there as long as you dont exit XBMC.

5) Bad for Netflix, stock remote is totally useless cannot control Netflix, you need RF air mouse and Netflix video is SD no HD stream.
