    Portable Mini PC purchase

    I gotta say, this portable mini PC I got from the store has really changed the game for me. It's the perfect size for taking with me wherever I go and setting up wherever I need to. I was pretty surprised to see that it's not only got a special BIOS that can handle higher wattage levels, but it works even better with Ubuntu, cutting down on power usage. And the fact that I can upgrade the SSD to fit my storage needs is a huge plus. The fan runs quietly, so I can use it in quiet places like my office or even in the car. The plastic case feels sturdy, which gives me confidence it'll last a long time, even though it's a little bit flexible. All in all, I'm super happy with this purchase and would totally recommend it to anyone in the market for a highly portable mini PC that's just as good as the bigger models.

    Mini desktop replacement

    I've been using Intel NUCs and small PCs for a while now, and let me tell you, this mini desktop replacement is a total game-changer. Yeah, the case feels a little flimsy, but it still looks sleek and works like a charm. The plastic might be thin, but if you don't go poking at it all the time, you're good to go. Gotta give props to this mini PC, it handles tough tasks like a boss. The power brick that comes with it really helps it shine, and it stays surprisingly quiet even when things get intense. The only downside is gaming. AMD GPUs are okay for light gaming, but don't expect them to replace a dedicated GPU. Stick to older games, e-sports, or console emulation, and you'll be golden.

    Hardware purchase

    I bought this gadget right after it came out and was pretty happy with it at first. But then I decided to upgrade the BIOS to get more vRAM options, and that's when the trouble started. The stability took a hit because those high-performance NVMe drives were making the voltage rail sag, leading to random reboots. Thankfully, the tech support folks were awesome to deal with. They took back the unit and gave me a new one that's been running smoothly ever since. I'm really impressed with the way the company handled the situation. I went from swearing off their products to happily telling others to give them a try.

    Portable gaming and streaming PC

    I gotta say, the portable gaming and streaming PC I bought is awesome for watching videos and streaming, plus it can handle gaming pretty well. I've been able to play Diablo 4 without any issues, although I do have to mix up the settings a bit. My main PC with a 6700 CPU still outperforms it in gaming, but this little PC is perfect for when I'm on the go and want to game or watch shows. The only thing is, it can get a little warm during gaming, but it's pretty quiet overall. I think once we get some future GPU driver updates, it'll only get better!

    Fastest computer for video playback and editing

    The HX99G is seriously amazing! It's so fast, and video playback and editing is super smooth on this thing. I did have a little trouble opening the case to add some extra stuff, but once I figured it out, it was smooth sailing. The memory and SSD heatsinks are a nice touch, and installing them was easy. Setting up Windows 11 Pro and drivers was a breeze. The performance is outstanding - this thing is a powerhouse! And it's so quiet, sometimes I even forget it's on. Plus, the Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and tons of USB ports make it really convenient.

    Mini PC purchase

    I recently got this awesome mini PC that was lightning fast! But then, after about a month, the fan started getting really noisy. So, I decided to reach out to support and they got back to me quickly. They sent me a new fan that was a breeze to install. Now my mini PC is back to running smoothly! Things happen, but the support team was amazing.

    Compact, Quiet Mini-PC Purchase

    This Mini-PC is just the right size and it runs super quietly, which is great for where I work. But I do have to knock off a star because of this irritating problem. Every now and then, the whole system decides to reboot on its own, and boy, is that annoying. I've figured out that it happens when I connect my monitor through USB-C, and sure enough, it crashes after a few hours. I even tried updating the BIOS, but that didn't solve the problem. It's a real bummer that a cool machine like this has this frustrating flaw.

    Mini PC upgrade for gaming

    The Mini PC I bought was totally worth it! I went ahead and bumped up the memory to 32GB and threw in an extra M.2 drive, and man, did it make a difference! Dual-booting Windows 11 and Linux was a breeze, and this Mini PC is a beast - super fast and powerful. It handled games like a champ. Yeah, there were a few times it slowed down playing games at max resolution, but tweaking the graphics settings fixed that right up. Upgrading the CPU/GPU was a bit pricey, but totally worth it for the boost in performance.

    Small yet efficient computer

    I really like the computer I got from this store - it's super compact but really powerful. It fits perfectly on my desk and can handle all my tasks without a problem. The storage space is great too - I can keep all my files in one place easily. The only issue I had was with the ethernet port acting up. But other than that, I'm happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a small but efficient computer.

    Mini PC purchase

    I just received my mini PC and let me tell you, this thing is a beast! It got to me pretty quickly despite a small shipping hiccup, but nothing too bad. Setting up the hardware was a breeze on a fresh Windows 11 installation, just had to track down a few drivers. Did some stress testing and it stays surprisingly cool for a machine with this much power. It's ideal for small spaces.

    Mini PC with external GPU compatibility

    I recently bought this mini PC expecting a lot, but it didn't quite meet my expectations. I think the problem might be the GPU I attached to it - my external 2080Ti isn't performing as well as I thought it would. It's struggling with games like Diablo on max settings, especially on my 1440p 240Hz G6 Samsung monitor. Interestingly, it seems to work better when connected to an older i9 9800H. I'm still looking into why this is happening, but overall, it's been a bit of a letdown for me. I'm curious to compare it with an Intel build to see how they stack up.

    Mini PC UM790 Pro

    Yeah, so I picked up this really awesome mini PC that's tiny but super powerful! It's got this AMD Ryzen thing that makes it run crazy fast, and I threw in some extra RAM and SSDs to make it even better. It's not the greatest for gaming, but for pretty much everything else, it's totally awesome!

    The device runs fast and smooth

    This laptop is super quick and runs really smoothly, which is great. But man, the WiFi on Windows takes forever to get going and only shows a few bars instead of a full signal. It's frustrating waiting so long for YouTube to load too. They really need to upgrade the WiFi card for the next model.

    UM773

    Ordered a UM773 - AMD Ryzen 7 7735HS / Pink (SE) / 32GB RAM+1TB SSD for 479 euros in a ''flash day'', got no communication from them for 2 days, emailed them asking when they plan to ship and then the story unfolded. First they said that they had an ''issue'' with the website and that although I ordered a 32GB Ram+1TB SSD, it was in fact a 32GB+512 SSD. Then they said they can ship me the 512GB with 10 euros discount but I said that I want the 1TB as that's what I paid for. Then they said they didn't have any in stock and they offered to send me a black one and 20 euros discount, and I said as long as its same specs, lets do it. Then they cancel my initial order, issue a refund and they wanted me pay again 529 euros for the black one even though I had ordered the pink at 479. So they tried to scam me for 50 euros extra just for a different colour as the cheaper one miraculously went out of stock. I would avoid them, they cannot be trusted. I didn't re order, but as promised, I am posting a negative review anywhere I can.

    Minisforum PC

    PCs are indicated on their website as being in stock locally. However, this does not appear to be the case and they are shipped from China without notice. If they are shipped at all. The credit card payment is always charged immediately and after this they can no longer be reached by email. Avoid these Chinese scammers.

    X500-5700G

    I admit computers are outside my comfort zone but I knew enough to get going on my own, so this review is coming from an average user. Firstly it looks great, a little ... than the palm of my hand, I was able to mount it behind the TV and loading and unloading was easy, secondly the memory, 16+512GB is more than enough. So far, no problems with this mini pc and I love it.

    X400 4750G Mini PC

    Don't buy from MinisForum! I bought an X400, and the headphone ports were setup so that standard headphone plugs will not fit in them. Support is painfully slow if present at all--sometimes messages are ignored. Driver updates are at a free upload site they use, that tries to install malware on your computer (by telling you falsely that you have viruses and need to click to install their fake anti-virus to clean them).

    I tried returning the item within the first week, and they kept ignoring my requests for weeks, always asking for more information. Finally they said I'd need to pay for return shipping to Hong Kong (~$150) plus a 2% return fee, even though that wasn't their published return policy! Avoid this company!
