I have a Minix X7 with similar specs. It does a lot of things right but the big disappointment is the video section. It does not decode MPEG2 video well and video quality leaves a lot to be desired. The unit is shipped with a 720p kernel which explains part of the issue. I tried installing 1080p firmware but XBMC messed something up and now doesn't work properly at 1080p at all. Comparing Netflix video quality to the HTPC or Chromecast is like night and day. The Minix doesn't even come close to the video and audio quality of either.
