My Amazon Review On The Minix NEO Z83-4 Mini PC

December 30, 2016

Recently I posted an article, All I Want For Christmas Is A MINIX NEO Z83-4  … Well, Santa left me one of these and I must say, I am very impressed, thus far. As a matter of fact, I am writing this blog post using this mini PC, connected to a 32 inch TV, in my garage.  I typically do not post reviews, but I did post a review on Amazon (see below) to encourage others to consider this mini PC as a home entertainment setup or even for a basic PC for everyday use (such as email, web browsing, watching videos, office documents, etc…). Very nicely built with a very small footprint.

This review is from: MINIX NEO Z83-4, Intel Cherry Trail Fanless Mini PC Windows 10 (64-bit) [4GB/32GB/Dual-Band Wi-Fi/Gigabit Ethernet/Dual Output/4K]. Sold Directly by MINIX Technology Limited. (Personal Computers)

Great Mini PC That Met All My ExpectationsDecember 30, 2016

Put a great deal of research into the Minix Neo Z83-4 and based on my research I purchased this mini computer (as a Christmas gift to me) with high expectations. The Minix Neo Z83-4 has met those expectations and more… If you are looking for a computer to connect to your home entertainment system, this is the one to get. If you are someone looking for a basic computer setup, this will do the job. I currently am a tech blogger (whatsonmypc.wordpress.com) who has an obsession for computer technology. Setting up this computer was quick (and easy), with no software bloat that you typically would find on new computers. I have put the Minix Neo Z83-4 to the test by running numerous software applications, videos, browsers, etc… and for a mini PC this thing rocks. I have been very pleased with the build, ease of setup, the numerous ports available and the fact that my experience with this mini PC, thus far, has been very positive. Currently, I am using this computer in wireless mode, with a 32″ Insignia TV connected (via HDMI), with a wireless mouse connected, wireless keyboard connected, a 128GB Mini SD card installed and a 1 TD Western Digital external drive connected. One thing I did run into is that when you insert a SD card, it has to be inserted upside down. Ditto on the other positive reviews you are finding here. Nice work Minix…
