Summary: Compact, quiet, pretty responsive with a m-sata ssd for the operating system, and 8gb ram. Only negative is the built in wifi. Was getting 500kbps (dial up speeds) while macbook 18" away was getting 40Mbps. Fortunately the wired network works perfectly.
Summary: Nice mini PC that works well when used for the tasks it was intended. We have several of these at our office that run conference room TVs. We've tried other brands, but the best bang for the buck is with the Brix.

Summary: I'm very pleased with this little device. I bought it to run my security camera system and it is perfect for that purpose. It replaced a 4 year old Dell machine which has a broken fan that is no longer available. The Gigabyte box HAS NO FAN! I think this will last a very long time.
