VX2 Celeron J1800 / J1900 mini PCs with 500GB Hard Drive Sell for $180 and Up (Promo)

CSQ CSW9 is an Intel Celeron J900 based mini PC with a 500GB HDD that normally sells for a little over $200 on Aliexpress once shipping is included. But today, as I found a list of Geekbuying Coupons via Google+, I noticed the device was listed on Geekbuying as VX2, and both Celeron J1800 and J1900 versions were available for respectively $179.99 and $189.99 after applying MYMVECMY coupon, which looks like a decent deals since a 500GB 2.5″ SATA drive costs about $45.

VX2_mini_PCSpecifications listed on Geekbuying are mostly the same as for CSQ CSW9 except some difference highlighted in bold or stricken-through when removed:

  • SoC – Intel Celeron J1800 dual core processor @ 2.41 GHz (base) / 2.58 GHz (burst),  or J1900 Quad core processor  @ 2.0 GHz (base) / 2.41 GHz (Burst) with Intel HD graphics (10W TDP)
  • System Memory – 2 GB DDR3L 1066/1333 MHz
  • Storage – 2.5″ 500GB SATA hard drive + micro SD card slot + optional 32GB to 128GB eMMC flash
  • Video Output – HDMI 1.4a + VGA with dual independent display support
  • Connectivity – 10/100M Ethernet (Gigabit Ethernet as option), 802.11 b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0
  • Audio – Realtek ALC269 HD audio codec, 1x headphone jack

  • Dimensions – 153.4 x 153.4 x 38 mm

The computer only ships with its power supply, is said to come with Windows 8.1 pre-installed (likely without proper license), and the company claims Android & Windows 8.1 Dual Boot, Ubuntu, Fedora, etc.. can also be installed.

GeekBuying $50 coupon in only valid until April 14,2015. although I’ve seen them withdraw coupons earlier, if a promotion is a bit too popular… An alternative is eBay where VX2 J1800 sells for $188.99 and VX2 J1900 for $197.99.

  1. And would like to know WHICH gigabit LAN chip (Realtek please)… or actually which 10/100 chip too!

  2. I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again. Having installed and tested of course Windows on a Celeron J1800 I must say it really has an appalling performance in Windows 8.1.
    Maybe if you install some light weight Linux or something this would be usable but there’s better stuff out there for sale.
    There’s some fanless mini PCs using Celeron CPUs based on the core architecture that would be a much better choice and the price is about the same.
    For a bit more money you could also get a fanless I3 miniPC which would really put this thing to shame so …

    1. Nice… They further discounted the quad core version to $168… The $50 coupon does not work at that price though… It would have been too good 🙂

      And they’ve also added some free gift I did not see yesterday like HDMI cable, TSM01 air mouse, and xiaomi earphone…

    That one is interesting too, but lacks hard drive (replaced by 64 eMMC). It’s not really fair to compare price with taobao since shipping to overseas is not included. I think we need to add 10 to 15% to the price for a fair comparison.

    I could not find that model on Aliexpress, but J2900 mini PC with 4GB RAM and 8GB eMMC sells for $220 and up. http://www.aliexpress.com/af/j2900-4gb.html
