Used as media player

Alfred B., Newegg

  • Pros: I installed openELEC on this machine, using some memory I already had and a 4GB flash drive as the only storage. Plays movies and streaming media quite well over wired Ethernet
  • Cons: getting the case open to install memory requires some care and patience.

  • Summary: unit is well priced
  • Pros: Running Ubuntu 10.4- Install was excellent. HDMI sound problem at first. Discovered it only works with 2 channel. 5.1 and other HDMI audio settings do not work. The unit has some skipping problems with Hulu. I am working on fine tuning the unit and am looking for suggestions

A Little Slow For My Taste

Thorstein Veblen "Conspicuous Consumer", Amazon
8 December 2011
  • Summary: i use this box as an htpc for my tv. I primarily use it to stream from my Ready NAS and to surf the web when I want. I like the box as it doen't run too hot and I haven't had any trouble with it in the past six months or so since I have had it. I do have two issues with it however.

Works great

Matthew C., Newegg
18 August 2011
  • Summary: I bought this to be the hub of my media center, and to replace an older SilverStone setup that was loud, large, and hot. I like it just fine so far. To respond to the angry reviewer who commented that the computer doesn't have the horse power to play streaming video, that's not true at all.
  • Pros: Small, silent, cool, performs as expected.
  • Cons: It's a little bit under powered, but that's to be expected with the Atom processor
