Summary: This is a great little machine. It has done everything that I have asked of it. It is small enough to hide most anywhere.
Pros: Computer is tiny, has all the ports needed and is a great HTPC. Installed Ubuntu, Kodi and Plex. Computer is connected to my NAS for movie/music streaming. Computer is very quiet.
Cons: Hard drive is a pain to replace. Installing Ubuntu was not a straight forward process. Not Ubuntu's fault. I place the blame squarely in MS's lap for their BIOS requirements. No IR receiver. Only a wimpy Celeron, but good enough for a HTPC. Comes with 1 stick of 4GB RAM. System seems to work best...
Summary: Purchased November 18, 2013. Has been a good computer until recently. I've run Windows 10 preview on it since the preview came out. Recently it would boot up without recognizing USB ports. I would have to power it down and back on. Thought it may have been something to do with Windows 10.
Not the smoothest operating small computer I've tried but I'm working to upgrade parts.

Summary: Fresh out of the box it was speedy. After installing all the Windows updates and a few apps it slowed down considerably. Because of that I replaced the stock memory with a pair of Crucial 4GB sticks. I believe in using matched sets of memory and not mix-n-match.
Summary: I have this Pc now for approx. 1 month. It was an easy hook up to my led living room pc. System came with Windows 8, which I immedtiately upgraded to 8.1. I installed Kodi to be able to watch movies from my NAS. My son also enjoys it to play Minecraft.
Summary: I love it. If you can afford the processor upgrade though, go for it, I think that's the only regret, but the celeron processor is powering Windows Media Center for all my TVs so I am fine with it :) Keyboard and mouse range is great too.
Summary: Pros: Great size for a HTPC device. It will fit just about anywhere easily. Its quiet - I can't hear it running. Supports 1080 output no problem. Cons: Windows 8. It stinks. Also, and this was worth me subracting 2 stars, the PC ships with RealTek audio which did not support audio through HDMI to my...
