Great workstation

James C., Newegg
26 March 2016
  • Summary: I have since moved the motherboard and components to an Antec ISK300-150 and added a 2 port Intel gigabit adapter. The original case was still quite functional so I donated it to Goodwill. This is a barebone and as such does not function until you add other components.
  • Pros: At this point I am going on 4 years of continued use on this little barebone. I used it as my business workstation, my playtime machine, development machine, virtual host, I found the TPM for it and have set it up... This little box is still rocking nicely. I ran virtuals, I crunched world commun...
  • Cons: None at all. The barebone was an awesome purchase.

dead after one year

jason g., Newegg
19 August 2015
  • Pros: It was nice when it worked
  • Cons: it shut down once in a while without warning. As it aged the shut downs became more frequent. After the last shut down it would not restart. I did some trouble shooting thinking that it was a bad power supply. (changed the power supply and tried the old supply on a working computer, to find the p...

good pc, junk power supply

Jarrod S., Newegg
1 March 2014
  • Pros: pro: great little pc for the family. Enough power for the web and video. this is a slow processor, but its good enough for common tasks, and its cheap
  • Cons: con: The power supply died in the middle of a youtube video after 3 weeks. If i want to return it, i have to return the whole build, not just the power supply.....

Cheap, lower power, but solid

Donald S., Newegg
5 February 2014
  • Summary: It's important to realize that the processor on these is pretty slow, so if you want to do anything beyond the most basic of tasks this is not the right choice. They do make good very low powered workstations or could probably work as very simple server boxes though.
  • Pros: I picked up 4 of these to replace some really old workstations for users who barely do anything beyond opening a browser and firing up Outlook. For this they are pretty solid, but if you want to do anything beyond that you are going to have a bad time. Throw a cheap SSD in them and you will have ...
  • Cons: They don't have enough power to play any video content that is HD, so while I was hoping to use one as an HTPC it would not be a good idea. I've also had some issues with them having errors booting into Windows, which is not a huge issue, but has been troublesome for users who don't know the moni...

User Review

John W., Newegg
26 January 2013
  • Summary: Built this as an inexpensive linux machine to access web and email. Also is used to view technical documents and chat with others on google chat. Has worked perfectly for over six months. Would have gotten 5 stars but the front cover broke the first time reinstalling it.
  • Pros: Does what I need it to do well and for low cost.
  • Cons: The front cover breaks easy

Random but frequent BSOD and failed on bios update

Ben S., Newegg
14 August 2012
  • Summary: Tried clearing the CMOS by switching the jumper from 1-2 to 2-3 and it still doesn't post(or it may be posting but nothing is being output to displays).
  • Pros: Good little htpc for the 30 minutes it would work before blue screening. Cheap
  • Cons: After 30 minutes it would error and blue screen. Tried 2 memory dimms before trying to update the bios. Updated the bios through the wingui program following the instructions and now nothing is showing up on the hdmi nor dvi-d port. Really not worth the hassle of all this. STAY AWAY.

Great HTPC

James K., Newegg
18 July 2012
  • Summary: Overall this is a good product. Could be better but overall I am very content with the item.
  • Pros: - Small - Lightweight - Low power consumption - Good for HTPC - DDR3
  • Cons: - SATA drive installation is a bit tight - Plastic clips break easily on the exterior panel but do not affect the look or functionality - PSU is very low power, can barely run a standard SATA HDD and Radeon HD 5450.
