Excellent for What it Does

Peter Besenbruch, Amazon
2 January 2013
  • Summary: This is a netbook without the screen, keyboard, touchpad, or battery. It comes without the crappy Windows Starter operating system. In fact, it comes without an operating system. The hard drives comes formatted with a FAT32 partition.

First time HTPC purchase

S. OTT "techie geek", Amazon
19 November 2012
  • Summary: As others have said the RAM is lacking. After installing Win7 Home Premium it ran sloooooooooooow. Took up to 2 minutes to load webpages, apps, or programs. Upgraded from 1GB RAM to 4GB and the response time for loading was finally acceptable. Video seems a little stuttery at times.

Not Bad

T Teel "T Teel", Amazon
11 November 2012
  • Summary: Not bad for the price. I change the system to have 4GB - which helped a lot! I also swapped the disk for a SSD 128GB and that helped. With these changes - the system works great. The memory was cheap - at Amazon - and I had an extra SSD.

Sufficient

Tim G., Newegg
2 May 2012
  • Summary: Worth its price, but you get what you pay for.
  • Pros: Tiny, quiet, and cheap; runs well and wasn't hard to set up at all.
  • Cons: Stutters when playing 1080P video, and HDMI doesn't work well with my TV -- I had to resort to using VGA. It might be the TVs fault, but I am quite disappointed that I can't use HDMI.

Good Little Box

James R., Newegg
29 March 2012
  • Summary: It is supposed to come with 512MB DDR memory, but my memory banks were empty and there was no separate dimm included with my shipment. In any event, I had already ordered a couple of 2GB dimms and used a 120GB SSD. The thing screams with Ubuntu 11 and is very usable. Very pleased!
  • Pros: Good size and good amenities (HDMI, optical audio, commodity ram/hdd easily accessible).
  • Cons: The blue light on the side is annoying. You can turn it off in the bios, but the setting is buried and a bit obscure.

Bueno y bonito

Pablo Campos, amazon.es
15 October 2012
  • Summary: Bueno y bonito, no barato. Con SSD y Win7 reproduce 1080p fluido con XBMC. Echo en falta un puerto IR para mando a distancia (o mando a distancia directamente). Muy buena opción si buscas un HTPC y el precio no es un problema.

Fantástico net-top

Jordi Bosch Creus, amazon.es
15 October 2012
  • Summary: No demasiado caro, pequeño, no demasiado caliente, con un consumo muy bajo y excelente para su uso como MediaCenter. XBMC va perfecto. Ahora bien, si quieres usarlo como ordenador normal, la potencia de la CPU se te quedará pequeña.

Potente, versatil, customizable. Ideal para HTPC.

David, amazon.es
15 October 2012
  • Summary: Todavía tengo el equipo a pleno rendimiento, pero todo apunta a que es un excelente dispositivo para actuar como HTPC: gráfica y CPU potente, pequeño, estéticamente bonito y lleno de puertos y conectores (USB 2.0 y 3.0, HDMI, SD, eSATA).
