Summary: use this as my windows media center box - so its been running constantly without any issue for about 18 months or so. only 1-2 reboots that I can think of and they were both caused by critical windows updates needing reboot. the hardware itself has never caused any restart ever.

Summary: To be honest, if you surf the web, check emails and do some basic office apps, this computer is perfect. I have installed it in the back of my lcd, and it dissapears. It can stay all day long powered because of its low power consumption (which means instant-on) and It runs relatively fast (its not a...
Summary: Runs XBMC Live perfectly and responsively. Plays 1080 and 720 video perfectly through HDMI with minimal tweaking from the XBMC setup. I am really happy with this as a home theater PC. Not using Wifi so I can't comment on this.

Summary: The problems reported in many reviews also were my problems, hdmi , noise, and bad wifi performance. I don't solve the hdmi problem , instead of this, I used a vga cable to connect the PC with my TV and the sound output to connect the PC with my HT.
Summary: this is a great little computer! works great for basic needs. if you need systems that will let you surf the web, use office products, and need to replace some aging systems, this is the computer for you.
Summary: good performance, besides built-in wireless. but in my experience, wireless usually sucks in general. i ended up getting a zyxel powerline ethernet adapter, and i am very happy. can be a little loud if the room is warm, but my louder AC has been running a lot, so i haven't noticed it.
Summary: I bought this as a spare PC in order to install and evaluate Linux distributions. So far, I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 32-bit, Ubuntu 11.04 32-bit, and Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit. The 64-bit version has noticeably improved performance.
Summary: I think this is a great product FOR MY NEEDS. Please note that I don't use this as a typical PC. I've installed Mythbuntu and use it as a frontend. The mount is perfect and mounts up cleanly on my TV vesa mount. My initial concern when I got it was the noise.
Summary: Running 64 Bit Windows 7....no problem. Great little HTPC. The unit is attractive and has all the inputs you would need. The only downside is the wireless...it is a little on the weak side. Plays every file I have thrown at it. I upgraded the memory (DM50 194 x2 from DMS) and it is fully compatible.
