Nice little box except for the LAN ports

CHRIS S., Newegg
16 December 2014
  • Summary: Nice little box for the price if you will be suing the wireless connection. If you need wired look elsewhere
  • Pros: compact,easy to work with and not a bad price
  • Cons: You get what you pay for. wireless works great but the wired LAN ports are not. we had 2 out of 9 completely fail as in the LAN port just came loose from the MB. seemed like cold solder joints.\ QA/QC could be imporved

Economical, convenient, Great Product!

  • Summary: It would be really sweet to be able to have some different graphic options. I realize that's asking an awful lot for such a small PC. I would have liked to be able to use some of the SSDs i have lying around instead of having to get msata.
  • Pros: Small form factor, reasonably priced, exceptional performer, very quiet all mountable with a couple screws, or VESA mountable directly on the back of your screen.
  • Cons: Integrated video, MSATA

great little box

Raymond G., Newegg
14 November 2013
  • Pros: Small form factor, runs very quiet. I have it running XBMC for my htpc. Its smaller, quieter, faster and runs cooler than what it replaced in my home, the Zotac ad12. I couldnt be happier with my purchase. I added a 7 port usb expander to connect additional external drives and an ir controller.
  • Cons: only 2 usb ports, but they are 3.0.

best paper weight ever

David J., Newegg
13 October 2013
  • Summary: Overall very compact, very useful unit. Will be getting a couple more in the near future.
  • Pros: Very small yet very powerful. It can handle everything I have thrown its way very well. 2 USB3 ports
  • Cons: No nVidia graphics = limited graphic application. No heavy lifting. Then again. Consider the form factor,.... it is a compromise. 2 USB3 ports, and no internal Bluetooth support = lost a port to keyboard and mouse.

not very reliable

Bryan U., Newegg
4 October 2013
  • Pros: Small, powerful for size, relatively quiet.
  • Cons: Not reliable. The CPU fan built into the small motherboard failed after only 3 days of use. Stay away from this product unless they change the CPU fan for something more reliable in a future version.
