Hello ,how it is possible that the minix u22xj is avaible on eBay ? The u22xj is officiel not out ,impossible to find on minix store ....so how this is possible ?????
We’re aware of this eBay reseller, though we are currently unable to identify who it is.

We’ve tried contacting them but have so far received no response.

It’s certainly not a MINIX authorized reseller and we don’t advise purchasing from them.

It’s impossible this eBay reseller has 50+ genuine NEO U22-XJ units as so far we’ve only given each MINIX authorized reseller 1-5pcs for their own internal evaluation. No large quantity orders to resellers/distributors have been fulfilled yet.

Got a reply. Forwarded it to John@minix.
This guy on Ebay claims it is a genuine product.
But I will wait for official stores.

Thanks for the information you passed on to me :)

The box maybe legit but I'm certain it will have pre-release firmeware which will not be suitable for the general public.
Yes, this is correct.

All NEO U22-XJ units are not currently running the consumer release firmware.

The consumer release firmware will be made available via O.T.A Firmware Update on Monday 2nd March 2020.

We advise against purchasing any NEO U22-XJ before the official release date on Monday 2nd March 2020.

Please allow me to add an extra remark.

When you buy an unfinnished product you can't tell what part was unfinnished. Was it software, was it hardware?
There must surelly be a reason why the product is still not being officially sold.

You might believe it is something related to software, and that in future updates your machine will be just like any other, yet you should keep it mind that it might well be something slightly worse. If the reason is hardware, no matter what updates you throw in, your machine will never be like the ones approved for releasing.

Keep in mind that the products being already sold in unofficial shops, if they were not subtracted from the production line, they were probably supplied for evaluation to someone that was aware, opposite to your final consumer convictions, that they were getting hold of a product that is very likely to be far from what should be expected by you.

These, lets call them testers, don't intend to keep the produtct as you do, because they will get the final version for sure, in time.

So, please follow the advicing given so far, and be patient. The wainting is for our own good.
Very well put. It should be obvious to any customers that purchasing anything before an official release date is not a good idea. An official release date is given for a reason.

Have you checked the resellers warranty policy? Are we supposed to fulfill the warranty for units that are not intended for customers, that we tell customers not to buy at the moment and are purchased before the product has officially gone on sale? :unsure::rolleyes::unsure::rolleyes::unsure:

Sorry to bring this up again...
Sadly I got to this forum after i had already bought a MINIX NEO U22-XJ TV BOX on Aliexpress.com from a store called MINIX Official Store.
The purchace was around the 23rd of Feb 2020. I confronted the seller with the information I found here, but the still clain to be a MINIX official store.
Not much to be done now ... however i was wondering what the chances are that I hve now a product that is hardware-wise 100% finished and only needs a most recent firmware update to be the official RTM - product. Also will an unofficial device automatically detect that it does not have the (fiirst release) firmware and update itself?

For the money Minix charges they should sell us much more.. I seen a Android box review that cost 55 or so bucks that blew this Minix away with bigger hard drive a 11 chip set faster, smaller at 1/3 the price..
If I didn’t already have so mch money into this box I would pick the cheaper box yesterday.. In fact I will be picking one up right now…. Bu. Bye

The s922 is the strongest CPU in a box at this Time ,the GPU Mali g51 the strongest gpu ....just the NVIDIA Shield have better CPU/GPU but have not HDR 10+...
So give me the name from this super box ,make me laugh 🤣🤣🤣

I hav to say you are correct and I was wrong.. I just wish Minix would give/sell us a much bigger Hard Drive.
If you want to see a great review on the Minix that actually taught me more watching his great review on Minix Android tv box..
I thought the latest box he was reviewing was going to blow Mnix pants off but not so.. Well this new box he was reviewing had the 11pi chip set and although a faster chip the 9 pi the Minix is better with everything else the Minix has.. I paid the highest I’m will to go plus .I got that very nice remote upgrade which cost me 30 or so bucks, i like it but it goes through batteries fast.. I started removing one of the batteries after I was done using the box Dailey which helps quite a bit.. It is a little pain I must say, just a bit.. I do wish mine had more room and a faster than the 9pi.. Just because.
This guy has a ranking list and the Minix comes in at #10.. #1 belongs to the one you say is better specks the Invidia Shield.
As you can tell I am not very tech savy but I’m 71 old guy, very Disabled, half my body is paralyzed, one working eye, triple bypass, my left leg is gone and much more. You get the picture by now I hope.. Not a gamer,, kinda hard with only 1 working hand… The End.. Check out the guys reviews, you will like them, I know I subscribed to him now.. I’m n Commie Ca.😩,
Love the state dislike the Idiots running the State.. On the reviewers name is TV Box Stop. Bye

Ultimately, the larger the eMMC (or hard drive if you will) that's installed as standard, the pricier any given device then becomes per unit for the consumer until you finally reach a point where it's just no longer cost effective for all parties concerned.

It's not like the U22 exactly lacks connectivity either, with an included micro SD card slot, multiple USB ports, & obviously ethernet/Wifi which opens up endless possibilities for local NAS or online cloud storage etc.

If you're really that desperate for more additional storage space, a dedicated NAS (or multiples thereof) remains a highly popular option ;).

The minix u22xj :
One of the best motherboard in a box with very complet connectors 3xusb 3 !!
The internal storage can be bigger with a simple sd card ,and you can use nas/pc or external HDD for big storage
For me this box is 90% perfect
There are just some small bugs to repair and rework the kernel for make work touchscreen
Maybe a CPU power update would also be appreciated ,not 2,2 GHz but just 2ghz for conserve stability...
Then it would be 100% perfect
