Good for a media server

Ben, Amazon
15 May 2015
  • Summary: I use this as a server for Plex, and as a general-purpose NAS. It's easily able to transcode 1080P video for my Chromecast in real-time. I dropped a star for not having USB 3.0 support.

A great little computer Mountain Lion and Yosemite work great

ViennaDisco, Amazon
5 January 2015
  • Summary: A great little computer Mountain Lion and Yosemite work great . I took away one star since I had to return one because I thought it was bad. Turned out when the linux OS went to sleep. It wouldn't wake up, Tried unplugging the unit, clearing the CMOS jumper and it still wouldn't POST.

  • Summary: Got one of these to run openelc (XBMC embedded). Works perfectly. Added 2GB ram and outputs full HD flawlessly. Use it to stream live iptv via my vusolo box. No complaints. Quiet and discreet. Hidden behind the TV out of sight.

Amazingly powerful for its size

Brian Thomason "aDorkable", Amazon
16 April 2014
  • Summary: I went with 16 gigs of ram and 128 gig solid state drives, and these little buggers fly. I'd give it 5 stars, but it runs quite hot despite having quite an annoying fan.

Good HTPC

Anonymous, Newegg
3 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought this as a replacement for an aging home theater PC and have been overall pleased. In terms of performance, this thing is a fine general purpose PC with enough power for general purpose tasks, as well as the ability to play 1080p movies via HDMI, my chief requirement.
  • Pros: Fast boot Plays HD movies Small Quit Efficient
  • Cons: A little stutter with HD netflix

SSD Boot Issue Fixed

Kevin K., Newegg
10 February 2014
  • Summary: After the BIOS updated I mentioned in my las review, the final fix to the SSD boot / crash issue was to remove the Muskin label on the mSATA board to allow the Intel thermal pad to reduce the mSATA temperature. With the label, the mSATA board ran at 44C, after removal, it ran at 36C.
  • Pros: Tiny, fast, and drives two monitors. 3 USB ports and a GBE Ethernet port make it useful.
  • Cons: Can have intermittent boot / crash issues if not setup properly.

Intel #1 at IC's, Not #1 at Drivers

Kevin K., Newegg
7 February 2014
  • Summary: I installed the 0048 BIOS with no luck. Then I set Intel Dynamic Power Technology to OFF in the BIOS and that solved both the Win 7 blue screen issue and SSD boot problem. Also, for what it's worth, I set the video memory size to 64MB (it won't boot if set any higher), and I disabled legacy USB.
  • Pros: Tiny, fast, simple and should be reliable. Also quiet.
  • Cons: I had intermittent Windows 7 blue screen freezes and "no bootable device found" issues for a while. Happy that I seem to have found a fix for it (below).

I did have some problems choosing a distro because some seemed to struggle with the install, but once everything has gotten up and running, it has stayed on for the past 2 months with no...
