    Hi, I was looking for a cheap Minix box, I just need to use for browsing, shopping, Amazon etc and to play mp4 1080p video, mp3 music files from a flash drive, not high bit rate.

    Maybe stream video from flash drive plugged into my router. I can do all these from my cheap Huawei mediapad t3 7 tablet but want a big screen view using a wireless mouse.

    I see a lot of negative views on here about it and saw one youtube review saying it struggled with 1080p video playback, do you think this old box will be ok for my needs, thanks.

    The X6 has been out for several years and one I've never used so I can't really comment on the performance !
    Not sure how much it's going to run you but I would probably spring for something a little newer :)
    This might make it more versatile however ...

    Thanks for reply, it's £59 on Amazon but the better one's start around £100. I think the lollipop beta firmware has been abandoned by Minix.

    I'd suggest you to buy something newer.. search on aliexpress or gearbest, if you buy from amazon - price is much more expensive. X costs around 50# on aliexpress now. better get xiaomi mi box for 70$ from aliexpress.

    Sorry for delay in replying, I was looking at a beelink GS1 but it gets mixed reviews, I will check out the one's you recommend

    I live in the UK so finding suppliers can be difficult, thanks for reply.
