Summary: Dinged a point for voltage jumper being incorrectly set on shipping, others not as knowledgeable would not have known to look for this and returned it for replacement.
Pros: Easy to setup, great support for Ubuntu 12.04.
Cons: When I first set it up and turned it on, there was power to everything but video. Only after disassembling and comparing the motherboard diagram to the actual motherboard did I discover that the voltage jumper was set to 3.3 instead of 5 (the default according to the diagram). Switching fixed it and it's working great now!
Overall, really do like the format and will continue to use it, but a couple of small points that kept it from 5 star

Summary: First off, I really do like this unit. I have built 20 or so now, and have found a couple of small items that keep it from being perfect. So things I like first 1. Small foot print 2. Comes with bracket to mount wall or back of monitor 3. very flexible in CPU choices and RAM amount. 4. Very good layout for such a small form factor. 5. lots of ports for any configurations (two serial ports, two display ports, two NICs, and lots of USB) 6. USB 3 speeds are good. 7.
Could be a little better looking, but extremely functional

Summary: This is not the prettiest case out there, but it gets the job done and does exactly what I need it to. Wish they would've made it slightly large to integrate the power supply, but it's really not a big deal since it's the size of a standard laptop cord. The cooling fans are up to so obviously do not set anything directly on top of it.
Incredible, 4.5 stars really. Perfect for putting together an HTPC all the way up to a 24/7 use, low power, main machine

Summary: This is absolutely incredible, I have yet to see anything that will even come close to giving you what you get anywhere near this price point. The lack of sata 3 is a bit disappointing and really is hard to believe figuring the other features. I have an i7-3770S in this thing and it runs incredibly fast, stays cool, no hiccups at all, whether you put a 3225 i3 in it or an i7 3770S, don't have any worries of it not working out well.
Great device, easy to assemble, but when it comes to drivers it leaves a lot to be desired

Summary: Managed to get it up and running within 1.5 hours. The OS however took a whole evening (Win 7) because I couldn't get the DVD ROM to work (I tried using one of the USB 3.0 ports on the back). Even after I managed to get the OS running, by painfully installing it through a flash drive, which I had to create myself, the computer couldn't recognize anything plugged in the USB 3.0 ports. What's the point of having such a hi-tech feature if you don't have the drivers for it?
Summary: Mycket bra liten barebone som passar perfekt som HTPC (om man inte behöver optisk läsare eller snyggare design) eller andra applikationer där man inte behöver expandera så mycket, exempelvis arbetsdator. Den är också mycket tyst tack vare sin heatpipe-lösning för CPU-kylaren. Klarar också höga temperaturer så inbyggning kan vara ett alternativ. Mycket stabil konstruktion helt i metall.
