Summary: I really like these. I've been trying out low-cost, low-power, tiny-as possible PCs to make a couple DIY arcades. This works really well and is my "keeper" for making the arcade. I have two fo them and they were both really easy to get working. I used a USB2.0 DVD drive to install the OS and get drivers loaded up. No issues at all.
Summary: I purchased two of these in the past. Here's what you do to hook these little bad boys up, which are awesome btw!!! 1. Purchase a SSD ($75-ish for 120gb) 2. Max out memory to 4gb ($40) 3. Clone 5400 rpm drive to the SSD PURE PROFIT as these things are outstanding after the upgrades.
Summary: I put in a 120 GB SSD and 4 GB of RAM (Both Corsair) and hooked up a Logitech k400r keyboard/touchpad combo. I had an Asus EEE-BOX B202 with a single core Atom with an integrated Intel GMA 945 and it could never handle video. This box can and it boots in a snap with an SSD: using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Hooked up to my Vizio TV with the HDMI.
Summary: I just picked up a used EeeBox EB1033 at a very good price via Amazon. I already had a 4gb memory stick so just ordered a 120gb ssd, my first experience with an ssd. Watched a video on youtube from a very helpful guy on how to open the case and install both memory and ssd. Just followed his lead and the job was done in about 30 minutes. Already had the mythbuntu 14.04 usb drive prepared and that install also went without a hitch which really surprised me.
