I bought a couple of these a while back (thanks Phil) and now and I'm looking for another one, or whatever might be newer or more up to date and does someting similar.  Any recommendations or pointers of what, where and how much?

You can get a box from Lazada but i'd wait until your back in the UK..

Give me a shout and i'll point you to the right box.. get a blank one and i'll upload the apps to the forum for you.

Yes but you have to be very careful bringing such a thing back into the UK fully loaded now Phil.

KWA is on about two boxes.. he may be stopped at UK customs.

Can you also see what is the best to buy to use in Denmark?

For us it would be best to buy from a warehouse within the EU since we run a real risk og getting a high duty slapped on if it comes from China and cost more than 10-11 Euro. The UK is still with us a little longer.

My old Minix is probably too old now - some of the newer apps fails installing fully and some of the ones that CAN be fully installed have little working contents. Terrarium looked promising but just pulled the plug.

Not in detail and not recently.
But you think it is worth a shot and you think it should be the Minix Neo U9-H?
Not the cheapest but you know much better than me.
I am not TOO impressed with the first Minix I bought. I had cheap box that performed just as well.

Yes I would only buy minx

It all depends on what you want from a box .. its engineered very well and loads of work has gone into everything working well.

This is a streaming box... 

Many blame the box when its many factors that make the streaming happen.

Ok here is what I think is the best box on the market right now.

Minix Neo U9-H  note: make sure you get A3 remote control.

On Ebay

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-2017-MINIX-NEO-U9-H-64-bit-Octa-Core-Media-Hub-for-Android-2GB-16GB-4K-HDR/283094789558?hash=item41e9c3adb6:g:HHIAAOSwtvZbbD~e

 

 

This indeed is a very good box. I had a Nvidia Shield which is very powerful, but really the benefits are aimed at gamers which I don't use. Flogged to a mate and bought Minix u9

Hi again.

I might still end up buying a Minix Neo U9-H but would like to hear what specs it is I should look for - and why the Minix is the right choice:

Minix build the box with the customers needs in mind.

Look at the processors on both units, the minix one has a processor that is built for 4K playback and streaming videos.

The other unit has the latest O/S but the minix doesn't .. the reason why for this is minix spend months working on the O/S and re-writing it to suit the processor and your needs.

The air remote works very well and with the google added extra voice command, using just your voice you can talk to Google to get answers..

This is the only box to do this on the market...

I've really not had the time to put into the minix box to be fair its a lot of work to offer a service showing how to load a box..

Which box do you have...?

Use showbox for movies and TV shows, seems to do the job and nearly always good quality when they pop up on the app.

Can I get subtitles (and how) with Showbox?
