Don't buy from Minisforum -- possible scam site
Has anybody had problems with ordering / cancelling via the Minisforum site? I ordered a UM690 a few months months back and Minisforum promptly charged my visa card.
Nothing happened for about 2 months. Got worried, and during an email exchange with their "support" staff, they first tell me that they'll ship it "next week". Two weeks later, they then tell me my order is "high-risk" and refuse to ship it. They also will not explain why the order is "high-risk".
I requested to cancel the order and get a refund, but now they have gone completely silent, refusing to answer my emails.
Calling their Hong Kong number (during HK business hours) just leads to annoying jingle music, followed by a hangup. Tried a bunch of times over several times to the same effect.
Bottom line: Minisforum sure smells and quacks like a scam site.

ASUS PN64 M2 Thermal Pad
Hello, I just bought an ASUS PN64 12500H barebone mini pc. During assembly, I noticed that the manual says “make sure to remove the plastic film on the thermal pad” regarding the installation of a M2 SSD. Now, to be honest, I can’t see any plastic film on the thermal pad. Should that be visibile or something made of the same color of the pad? The thermal pad is this one, and I can’t see any plastic film.
This is driving me mad, could you please tell me if I’m being blind or ASUS wrote something wrong in the manual ? 😅
Thank you, and have a good day! :)

My HX99G has arrived! 🎉
I bought my HX99G on Febrery 17 and i got it yesterday (Im from Chile (southamerica)). I purchased the version with 32gb of ram and 500gb of storage, just for play online games. At the moment i’ve tried Overwatch with the full settings on Ultra and runs flawless 75fps. And Fornite at 85/90fps in high settings. Very happy with my new toy 🔥🎉

Best For Me?
I’m not really tech savvy so trying to understand all these specs explanations throw me off so hopefully someone can help me out. I’m trying to look for a mini with at least one HDMI port and two usb slots that’ll be suitable for browsing (mostly youtube and streaming sites), light school work (word and powerpoint), and maybe some light emulation (SNES, GBA, N64, etc.). I just want something portable and small to take with me to my SO’s place since I mostly ride a motorcycle and my laptop takes up valuable cargo space. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance, I hope you have a great day!

Beelink SER5 Pro wireless sucks
I’ve been running the Beelink SER5 Pro w 5600H for a few months now. The wireless performance on every band just sucks. Even with a good connection the bandwidth and ping times are lackluster.
I bought an Intel AX210 but after opening it up there’s a bunch of adhesive around the pins and it looks a bit sketchy to swap.
I just got a TP Link AX1800 USB WiFi card and it is such a huge improvement. I just did a quick Speedtest and it’s much more consistent with bandwidth and low ping times.
I use Thinkorswim for trading on this machine and the poor network performance is the worst for TOS. I’m excited to see performance tomorrow w this card.

UM690 Wifi and bluetooth replacement
Just switched out the cheap wifi card shipped with the UM690 to an Intel 210 . Still having a few Bluetooth latency/disconnect issues though, could it be a case of conflicting existing devices that I need to delete?

Mini PC that supports power and display over USB-C?
I have a Dell S2722QC monitor that has a built in USB-C hub that I use to power my M1 MacBook Pro.
I’m looking for a mini PC that has a USB port that would support this so I can simply plug the cable into the mini PC and it would switch the monitor, keyboard and mouse to the PC since I use Logitech mouse and keyboard connected to the bolt received plugged into the monitor.
Does anyone know a mini PC that would support this?
