MINIX Z64 Android 4 – Best box currently on the market for XBMC/Kodi !!!!

Quick delivery and so far so good, take a couple of hours to get used. Quick delivery and so far so good , take a couple of hours to get used to it but would recommend.

Best box currently on the market for xbmc/kodi . Fantastic little box for using xbmc / kodi on. The 2gb of ram and the 32gb storage was the selling point for me. It also has a nice update feature built in for the device firmware so thats a huge plus. Overall though i would say its biggest selling point is the intel x64 processor. Far quicker / responsive compared to the standard android boxes which use the generic android tablet processors. Minix themselves ( via their website / forums ) give you the software to switch your box from android to windows and vice versa as the box is fully capable of running windows 8. All you need is the windows to install so overall a very versatile box. Usual drawback is the included remote ( no batteries fyi so make sure you have some aaa laying around ) but is compatible with all the mini wireless keyboards that are available for these tv boxes.

Lost a star due to:occasional hdmi connection issues after sleep (pushing the power button usually sorts it out though i generally just leave it turned on all the time)you cannot turn the device on using the air mouse remote (apparently the built-in ir receiver is not compatible with windows)air mouse has no right click or start buttons but i used some free software to re-map other buttons to these tasks and the air mouse does work well with kodi. Kodi (xbmc) was not pre-installed – the air mouse works best with kodi (pause, play, etc are correctly mapped) but not so well with wmp, vlc. Here are the specifications for the MINIX Z64 Android 4:

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Very nice computer, with certain limitations
  • One of the Best Machines out there!!
  • Amazing value. Lost a star due to

Fantastic speeds from this box and so much smoother than. Fantastic speeds from this box and so much smoother than my previous mx box. Only reason for the four stars is the really poor remote that comes with it. Non responsive and you have to press each key four or five times to get a response. Easily overcome with the kodi remote for ios and a bluetooth keyboard tho.

I bought this item for the xbmc at my fingertips and am not disappointed. The xbmc is second nature to me so i had it up and running within in minutes. The reason why only 4 stars was that the remote control that comes with it is totally useless that’s why why i ordered a air remote.

One of the best machines out there. With great response on loading aps. Plays everything that we trough at itfull video review here:[. tests made on the video review:- speed test, geekbench 3, antuntu, 3d mark score and epic citadel. – despicable me, cars game, beach buggy, gt racing 2 and asphalt 8 airborne. – video playback we will test the included pre installed xbmc / kodi minix version and also the latest stable version of kodi. After testing the x8 h plus the new z64 does not disappoint at all. ]

Very nice computer, with certain limitations. Actually it’s a good box, very reliable. Performance are ok for a standard use but the 32 mmc hard drive can limit the range of usability to certain purposes. The price is a little high for the hardware itself, but many mini pc of this kind with chinese origins, are not so trustworthy and let’s say what you are paying for is not all the hardware itself but also the warrant of durability. It comes with a new remote which is improved toward the old, working pretty fine, just a little too bulk. The os included is windows 8. 1, but you can still get free update to windows 10 if you say this system is meant for disability, microsoft made a website for this purpose, check it out. The most important thing that noone know about this mini pc though, which is really important to me, is that even if it has a ir sensor and the remote has ir sensor too, the ir does not work at all. Meant that you cannot this computer on from the remote, but you need to push a small button on the minicase, which i found absurd.Assistance confirmed me that, and because of this i will give one less star out of 5.

  1. Is there a better android box on the market?. This is my 3rd android box and it’s by far the best. Its fast at starting up and handles everything i throw at it. My main use is kodi and the neo z64 is as good as it gets at handling it (bar a high end laptop). A new remote is a must though but you could even use a wireless mouse if you want to keep cost down. I bought the esynic keyboard and that works a treat.
