Great Device

Jonathan w., Newegg
5 February 2012
  • Summary: You can build something similar for a bit cheaper. overall the size is unbeatable this thing is really small about the size of a Wii video game console.
  • Pros: Small size works perfect and not bad for the price. Easy to setup. Works perfect for a living room media center pc.
  • Cons: Does scratch very easily. Sometimes the color will go all purple when hooked up to a 47" lcd screen simple adjusting of resolution will fix this. Runs windows 7 perfectly fine.

Beats Intel Atom CPU/nVidia ION GPU hands down

Anonymous, Newegg
22 March 2011
  • Summary: The specs call for an IDE optical drive but is it SATA and watch out for the eject button placement. I only found the TEAC Slot Loading Blu-Ray to align correctly. Internal IR is an RC6 and works with any compatible remote.
  • Pros: I love this system! Does things my first booksize build didn't. Plays Flash 10.x flawlessly, with the Wireless N Mini PCIe streams HD files flawlessly, with SSD boots in 10 seconds, with USB TV Tuner plays/records live TV good (a little jerky occasionally), running 1080p resolution with HDMI digi...
  • Cons: The gloss finish is easy to scratch, keep the protector on while building. Would like to have had 3 holes for wireless connectors instead of 2. Other than that, I have no complaints.

A BYO 2009 Mac mini that runs Windows

Matt P., Newegg
23 November 2010
  • Summary: Makes an excellent living room system. If you add an optical drive (I didn't), it must be a slot loader (I see this as a pro). The front power LED is a bright blue ring around the power button. It would be nice if there was a way to disable it and run dark.
  • Pros: This system is almost perfectly equivalent to a barebones version of the 2009 mac mini and has a several things that the mini didn't have such as a SD card reader, external e-sata, IR sensor, front USB, HDMI, VGA out, 5.1 audio out, and a com (serial) port. You add the CPU, RAM, hard drive and op...
  • Cons: With only HDMI and VGA outputs, max resolution is 1920 x 1080/1200 (I wanted to hook one up to my 30" monitor). No firewire port, just e-sata.
