Not Just For Entertainment - Makes a Great Work Computer

Summary: I bought this to use for an IP based surveillance system. Since most people seem to be using mini computers for TV streaming I was skeptical about using it for anything else - a desktop replacement for example. Pros: It works better than an older tower system I have with Windows 7 for my purpose. I see no reason it why it would not make an excellent computer for everyday use.
Summary: One of the best things. The HD video quality is fantastic and it works amazingly fast. Still surprised by the size! Not a fan of the wireless remote/keyboard but I have attached my own wireless remote/keyboard. Definitely a huge recommend!
Summary: I tiny little wonder. Thais is my second unit. I use one of them in my office, as a presentación computer, connected to a 70" HDTV. The other one in my house, as entertainment center. Them meet my expectations.
Summary: I love this little computer. It has all the capabilities that any desktop has. It is small so it can easily be placed anywhere you may want a computer. I can take it with me if i travel due to its size and it hooks up to a tv for a monitor. Very clear and fast as well. This is one of the greater buys i have done in the computer end.
Summary: I am an over the road truck driver by trade, who needs a wifi capable computer in order to run my business. Laptops have sufficed over the years, but I was ready to try something different. Knowing that the Q190's hdmi would feed my fancy 32" lcd tv in the truck, including sound, I decided to give it a try. The one thing I really liked was the super compact size and the included mounting bracket.
Summary: I love this thing based on the design. No lags or skips when streaming video. Like the 1 TB drive. I would have liked to give this 4-1/2 stars, but didn't want it to downgrade to four, since it is a little louder than I'd like. Only really shows up in a quiet room, which isn't really when I'm using it. I hit the power button to sleep it when not using it and it comes back quickly when I do want it to.
Summary: I ordered this as a home theater PC, but it took a while, before it was working as intended. First off, the Windows 8 included does not include Media Center - its a $100 option. Since I didn't want Windows 8 anyway, I upgraded to Windows 7 Home Edition, which includes Media Center. This took a while, as not all the drivers on the Leonova web site listed as for Win7 are the correct ones.
