Summary

While there are many units available with the same hardware the Minix performs much better, with not only a being better built unit, but Firmware created just for it.
 
This makes it much seem much faster than other Android TV boxes with the same specifications with most being cheaply mass produced and loaded with generic Firmware and other software.
 
Minix also has a big support community with a dedicated forum to answer questions and fix problems.
 
As always be sure to read the reviews on Amazon or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.
