    Hi Guys & girls.


    Here we have the new Vorke V1 Windows 10 mini pc from Geekbuying.



    First of all i must thank the guys at Geekbuying for the review sample to test.This device has been a joy to tinker with


    The Vorke V1 arrived in just over two weeks via snail mail with no customs to pay this time :-)


    If you go for this Awesome mini pc i would go for the cheap & slow postage as with DHL you would more than likely to incur some big customs charges..

    Windows 10 Activated









    The vorke V1 comes with a power adaptor, charging cable & some basic instructions (No HDMI lead)



    The first thing you will notice is the size & weight of the V1.This is a quality bit of kit i can tell you.Its bigger than I was expecting but boy is packed with goodies, I love how you can completely dissemble the whole thing.


    The device weighs in at just under 14oz & the Dimensions are 153.4*153.4*38mm/ 6.039*6.039*1.496inches


    Once i had unpacked the V1 its time to start seeing how this device preforms.


    Its great to be able to weather i use the HDMI or the VGA port thats another good thing about the V1 or use them both at the same time.










    The first thing i did was a windows updates that was an easy process & took just under 1 hour to be fully up to date.The next important thing i did was to do a driver backup using double driver (Link below for my driver backup)

    Vorke V1 DD Backup


    Also latest driver & Bios on Geekbuying blog

    Vorke V1 Drivers & Bios





    Now time to have a play the vorke v1 boots up in just over 30 seconds so no pain staking waiting around for it to boot up,Juts press the power button and sit down & your up & ready.


    Its good to see the 4GB of ram & the 64GB rom & the best bit is both the ram & the rom can be upgraded so suit your needs.


    WIFI & lAN









    The wifi on the Vorke V1 is strong & constant not had one issue & if you want to go down the wired option you can use the (Gigabit LAN) that provides a data rate of 1 billion bits per second.


    Ports & connections


    The V1 has 4 USB port with 2 of them being the USB3 ports

    Its nice to have 2 full sized USB3 ports on the rear for the faster data transferring etc etc

    Power button the the top (I would of liked to see this on the side but thats my personal choice)

    Power connector on the rear with the HDMI port,VGA PORT,rj45 port & the 3,5mm headphone socket

    The V1 has ventilation holes on both side's of the device to help draw out the warm air.

    When your looking to buy any windows or android tv box for that matter you need to be looking for a box with plenty of ventilation holes or you will be having over heating problems from day one NOT WITH THE VORKE V1 with all the ventilation holes and the internal fan doing a great job.



    About the fan you going to ask how loud is it? Well i dont have a sound meter but so i cant tell you the sound level but i will say yes you can hear it some will say its too loud in my case its no louder that my desktop & after a wile you do not notice its there.




    Some internal photos




    Wow on dissembling this thing you really see how well made it is



































    Iv been using this thing as my main pc for the past week & its done everything iv asked of it everything works so dam well & fast..Kodi runs sweet (Always does on windows)



    Iv tested a few games like Asphalt 8 & beach buggy racing both play very well even with the graphics set to high Thats using my Tronsmart Mars G01 Game pad (Windows picked up the game pad with out problems everything is so straight forward



    What works

    64GB sd works
    120GB SSD
    128GB USB Stick
    Samsung 1TB unpowered HD works
    Tronsmart Mars G01 Gamepad works
    Logitech c270 webcam works



    Overall i would say where the V1 shines is video play back iv watched 6/7 films back to back with out fault,lag or stutter & no over heating on the v1 it does not even get warm so i would say the internal heat sink & fan is doing its job very well (so no heat sink mods required on this device)


    I use an app on my android phone called unified remote to control my all my windows based devices its very simply to use it has mouse & key bored input i highly recommend trying it.
