START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated Dec 2020)

I bought the Minix U1 for £100 after a few beers. Before I open it up I'm wondering should I be looking for something better for that cost? Use Kodi currently on laptop but wanted something smaller and could be left beside TV. Mostly stream 1080 films from my NAS and occasionally online. Must be able to install a VPN.

If I stick with the U1 should I get stuck right in with librelec from the start?
