Dual-Band Wi-Fi 802.11n
Unlike conventional single-band antennas, the NEO X8-H’s unique external antenna offers the use of both 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz frequency ranges. The 5.8GHz frequency is less prone to interference, and therefore offers far superior reliability and stability, perfect for those wishing to stream Full HD media content onto their NEO X8-H.
Whilst previous MINIX Media Hubs have offered NAND Flash, the NEO X8-H utilizes eMMC “embedded Multi-Media Controller’ memory. The utilization of eMMC memory offers an array of benefits in terms of performance, security and reliability, ultimately delivering a richer end-user experience. You can be rest assured that your media content is safely stored on the NEO X8-H, with its built-in power management system and flash memory controller.
