I recommend the new MX1 or the MK808. Will do everything you need. The speed has always been there on the MK808 and the MX1 is running the same processor.
Be careful where you buy the device from as there are a lot of fakes from China. You can buy one here and be confident in the quality of the product and shipping.
Good Luck, we're here for you!

max i am thinking about getting something within the next week probably the mx1 but i a bit worried cause i havn't seen any reviews on the mx1 also i'm a bit concerned about over heating with the mx1 being that there's no vent holes like on other models .... also does the mx1 have the screen resizing prob that the mk808 has where u have to keep resizing it? whats your return policy if i wanna swap for the mk808 can that be done if i am unhappy with the mx1

thanks nick

If you had read the review, you would have seen that the 4.1 upgrade was to be released in November. Also, the NEO doesn't have wifi issues like the 808.

I have read all the reviews and the Neo does ship with 4.0. The sad reality is that these manufacturers are making these devices so fast for market demand that sometimes they will pass up updating firmware or software updates. We've seen it many times. I hope they do uphold their promises.
As for the WiFi issue on the MK808, it was fixed with the updated firmware from the manufacturer.
If your a Neo owner I hope you can post your experience with it and we will do all we can to help get on JB if you need.
I appreciate your feedback Joker, cya around!

i just don't know what to get i saw the http://www.geekbuying.com/item.....12604.html
i like it because it has Ethernet port on it so no WiFi probs its always more like my Logitech revue it has its own power switch and its bigger then just the little sticks so i don't think there will be any overheating and if i get the mx1 or mk808 i will have to get one of the usb Ethernet ports and there's none in the tested accessory page that you guys offer

i have come to realize that almost anything i get is going to better hardware thing my Logitech revue so that's always a plus... wished u guys offered the x5 cause geekbuying i only have 10 days to test and return for a full refund

Well you know your going to have to do the FULL review on it if you get it :)
The 10 day return policy kind of worries me.
Also I'm working out a deal with Geekbuying right now so I can sell their products at a discounted rate.
Skype me

Hello,

I am new to this forum and also new to the whole miniPC thing. Just discovered the miniPC's yesterday and now I wanna get one. There are just so many options and so many sellers with multiples of the same name on their sites, it is a bit overwhelming. Can someone help me decide/guide me in the right direction?
I know all these current devices come with the RK3066 ARM A9 Dual core 1.6GHz and 1GB RAM.
Here's what I need:

=>8GB ROM,
=>don't care much about bluetooth, but would be great to have.
=>MOST IMPORTANTLY, One with the best wifi performance.
=>Most frequently updated(firmware)
=>Budget of around $75(USD)

Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance! :)
