As those of you who participate in this forum know I have spent a lot of time recently trying to get the 2018 Mac mini to work. I purchased the loaded up Mini with I7/32GB/1TB and also bought the Blackmagic eGPU. Today I returned everything. I very much liked the Mac Mini design and functionality and the gap that it filled between consumer and professional. I am very disappointed in the performance of my device and the reports here from other's problems and since I was in the 14 day window decided to return everything and see how this plays out. My specific problems included: 1. Bluetooth interference on devices that I have been using for years: -- with the worse being the Magic Mouse was horrible. It had about a six inch range before acting jittery. -- My bluetooth Beats headphones wouldn't stay connected -- I have a wireless midi keyboard that also was challenged to stay connected 2. The Mac mini had several shut downs because of some kernel errors or T2 chip issues 3. The monitor was now starting to flicker occasionally or go black for a second 4. The Mac mini would freeze for a few seconds occasionally 5. Some USB devices (like my external SSD and my Focusrite 2i1) would not always be recognized on startup and would have to be disconnected and reconnected manually. 6. The only way to get the eGPU to work with one monitor was to turnoff FileVault--which I get is somewhat of a common eGPU and one monitor problem but none-the-less a hassle and risk. I hope that my unit was just bad and that all of your devices work better because it has the promise of being the perfect device for the music and video studios. I am interested in how many others are returning their systems with the hope that Apple direct the appropriate resources to fix this quickly. I am still in need for a desktop and trying to figure it out.
