The MINISFORUM X400 is a multi-purpose mini computer designed for use in a variety of solutions, such as a home office, media centre/HTPC, printer management PC, digital signage, or mass-deployment enterprise IT solution.

Unlike it’s contemporaries, the X400 is powered by a desktop AMD processor – the AMD Ryzen 5 Pro 4650G. Supported by the powerful built in Vega Graphics iGPU, the X400 is capable of handling general work tasks (spreadsheet editing, video editing, etc.), but is also suitable for light-to-moderate gaming as well. Combined with dual-channel DDR4 PC3200 SO-DIMM RAM up to 32GB, you have a seriously heavyweight performer in a very efficient package.

For storage, the X400 provides huge array of options. Initially fitted with a lightning fast M.2 2280 PCI-e NVMe SSD up to 1TB, you can further expand your storage with an M.2 2242 NGFF SATA SSD, 2.5-inch HDD/SSD, and even a microSD card (up to 128GB). This variety makes it excel as a HTPC.

The X400 mini computer supports twin 4K displays, one via HDMI, the other via Displayport, enabling increased productivity.

For general connectivity, the X400 features a solid four USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports (capable of speeds up to 10Gbps), as well as 3.5mm audio jack on the front side of the unit. Also featured is the presence of dedicated Line IN, MIC IN and HP OUT ports on the side of the device.

As far as network connectivity options go, the X400 provides a solid, reliable combination of dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, and WiFi6/Bluetooth 5.1 wireless connectivity, making this Ryzen mini PC easy to connect to any environment.

Size-wise, the X400 only takes up around 1/25th the space of your average desktop computer, sizing up at approximately 154×153×62mm, and weighing only around 1.9kg. It’s a tiny bit larger than its contemporaries, but still an extremely small mini computer overall.

Well worth it, just needs a little polish

If you need a fit and forget small pc this is a great buy.

Just be aware of a couple of limitations.

If you want to use Windows 11 when it comes out you will need to upgrade the BIOS. This is a slightly tricky process which is clearly spelled out on the MinisForum support page for this product. Hopefully this will be taken care of for future buyers.

You should also be aware that - at this point - the BIOS options are somewhat limited. No advanced settings at all.

Which is a shame as the pc is fast, powerful and will run everything I have tried without a problem.
I haven't tried AAA games but still..

...I am certainly not disappointed.

I didn't say - it's quiet too.

Really impressive

I have been very impressed with this little box. It feels really fast and responsive. The only issue was that the DisplayPort doesn't seem to support Dual Mode so cannot use a passive adapter or cable to connect to HDMI or DVI. I use this active adapter-

A bit of a pain but not the end of the world.

Upgrade to downsize

I was looking to physically downsize my existing PC but effectively upgrade the spec. The MinisForum EliteMini X400 AMD Mini PC met all my requirements. When it arrived it was simple to set up, I upgraded it with an additional SSD, which gave me the extra storage capacity. It is quick and handles all the applications that I use. As a general purpose machine I cannot fault it and it is well built and occupies so little space, it is great value for money. The support was very helpful in helping me make the right choice.
