Personal review
Since a few days I have my new Minix NEO U9-H up and running. This Minix was bought as a replacement for my NEO 8H-plus. So far I’m happy with it.

Small side note: For only Kodi use, I did not have to replace my old Minix NEO 8H-plus. Both Minix (old and new) works well and stable with Kodi. I have not noticed a difference.

Complete review will follow.
