Cube Mix Plus - M3-7Y30 tablet for $330
« on: November 05, 2017, 10:15:49 pm »
So the Cube Mix Plus with M3-7Y30 and internal M.2 2242 slot has been mentioned before, but I think at current prices it deserves a hard look at.

The Cube Mix plus is being sold for $330 (https://www.gearbest.com/tablet-pcs/pp_590393.html), 

It can be paired with an Ipega 9023 for $20 so that they whole package would be $350

The problem with those ipega controllers is that its a button short so if you want the guide button (handy for big picture mode) you have to sacrifice another button and hope the game doesn't need it.

I picked mine up at Banggood for $310 a few months ago.  They go on sale quite a bit.  I think all the Chinese sites are starting their 11.11 sales, so it may go down even more during the sales.

I'd hold off at the $330 price, since I think you'll find some better coupons and deals coming up.

The tablet looks nice.  Any chance there is a 7" screen version for easier portability?

Not with the same hardware.
I know its a stupid reason but I really don't like the white borders around the screen, if they made a black or dark colored model I'd be all over it.

$278.98 at Banggood using coupon code B327F6.  $348.73 is normal price and the code gives $69.75 off.  Just tested it in my cart and it works.

At that price its almost too good to pass up!
Anyone here have one?  I heard it runs hot and throttles when gaming.

@MOFO there is a YouTube video showing how to fix the overheating issue.  Basically by putting a copper shim in, so that contact is made with a metal back plate inside the tablet

I have one.  I love it.  I haven't had any throttling issues on it, but I doubt Broforce really pushes it THAT hard.  It does get hot in the back of it though.

TechTablets has a video showing how to add a copper shim and new heat plate for it.  Doesn't cost much for the parts.  I'll be doing mine probably in December.  I've been a just bit busy these days, and kind of let most of my projects get stale.  Things are slowing down again, so I'll get back to them.

Looks like Gearbest wins the best deal at $269.  Use coupon code GBTPC25.  Tablet link is here: https://www.gearbest.com/tablet-pcs/pp_590393.html?wid=21

I've tested it and it still works.  At this price I'm considering getting one for my daughter for Christmas.

Any idea if nvidia geforce now game streaming would work on this?  Thinking about getting either this or the gpd win if I can play streaming games that would be too heavy for the portable.
