Did not come with operating system as advertised.

Mark Berry, Amazon

  • Summary: The computer is a nice, functional computer for basic internet use or for running basic Office products. But it was advertised as coming with Windows 7 Home and came with no operating system at all. That makes a huge difference in price and the ability to just plug and play. False advertising is inexcusable!

Good but...

  • Summary: It took me a little tweaking to get this to actually function as a HTPC hub outputting at full 1080p. At first this thing was a big dissapointment, out of the box it was not playing many high def videos. After a little pouting I: 1. Updated all of the drivers 2. Installed media player classic 3. Added the processor-light CoreAVC to handle decoding in media player classic 4. Installed the Media Browser plug in for Windows Media Center 5.

Not totally ready for prime time

Ray, Amazon

  • Summary: Interesting unit. PROS: Great size. Has ESata output. Plenty of USB ports and a reasonable suite of HTPC applications. CONS: It runs a little slow. And they say in the instructions that you need to set it up like in the picture -- ie don't lay it flat because (what they don't say) is it runs pretty hot in two areas on one side. I had planned to use this flat just under my tv, but I had to mount it to the back of the tv instead.

Great product - just not for me

  • Summary: Great little PC for jr high, high school or college student. Definately a good quality pc however has limitations that most adults would not want to deal with. Nice compact design and easily installed and set up. Great little PC for the money. Item could be marketed a little differently to focus in on the appropriate consumer.
