Works well

Wonderful Rohr, Amazon

  • Summary: Deployed a few batches of these, probably forty in all and no issues. The first set has been in operation for about three months. For the size we have had no issues with quality or heat problems like we have had with other brands, and the environment they are in is not very forgiving.

64 mb Video RAM is the MAX

Keith W., Newegg
20 March 2015
  • Pros: This is a great little machine, easy to setup, boots fast, low heat, low noise, etc.
  • Cons: Video RAM allocated from the system is fixed at 64 mb. Windows Media Center states the "computer is not digital cable ready" and it will not stream HD TV from the SiliconDust HD CableCard box...the whole reason I bought the Brix was to be a HTPC/DVR to replace the cable company's cable box. It ca...

Excellent Build Quality

R. S. Hunter "The KFS", Amazon
16 March 2015
  • Summary: I was pleasantly surprised by the build quality and compact size. I'm using it for the brains of a custom arcade cabinet, and it works great. Not the cheapest solution, but I didn't want some garbage refurbished Dell, and this doesn't create heat or noise inside the cabinet, while being powerful...

Great little box for my purpose.

G. James, Amazon
10 March 2015
  • 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.

Utterly awesome!

Matthew S., Newegg
24 January 2015
  • Summary: My life feels more fulfilled since getting this little thing.
  • Pros: First pro: size. It makes the Mac Mini look like a ship's anchor! I go to an art school where most people blindly follow the cult of Mac, and it's fun to be able to point at their gigantic Mac Minis they use for art installations, and say "still using those old behemoths? Second pro: performance....
  • Cons: If there's a con, it's POSSIBLY the wifi card. Sometimes I have problems with the wifi dropping, though this has become more rare. It seems to happen mostly when I'm on an encrypted network at some distance from the router. There is talk this may be the fault of how Linux works with encrypted Wif...

Great desktop box

Daniel T., Newegg
6 December 2014
  • Summary: Runs GNU/Linux just fine. Running Xubuntu 14.10 very well. Plays 1080p video, with SSD extremely fast boot time. Good Linux support for the Intel video drivers. Might need some backports if running older kernel then 14.10.
  • Pros: Runs Linux very well. Quiet. Mounted behind monitor. Good mounting solution.
  • Cons: None

Very good quiet compact system

dale b., Newegg
24 November 2014
  • Summary: This is the thrid Brix I've purchased, all different models. This is the first one that has given me anything but a flawless installation experience. On this unit, the action of the clip holding one of the ram modules was not very smooth.
  • Pros: small form factor, quiet, low power consumption, good quality, optical SPDIF output.
  • Cons: Quality not quite up to other Brix models I own, performance not quite up to playing Minecraft
