an ok chromebox

Summary: have had issues with power requirements for this unit. may need to be reset to factory default from time to time. unit is oversized compared to newer asus chromebox. samsung isn't making these anymore.
Summary: We were happy with our Chromebox - for about 16 months. Used it mostly as a streaming media device for our TV (in lieu of cable). Then one day, it just wouldn't turn on. Poof! No more Chromebox. :-( Despite living with two IT guys, this little box isn't very user-fixable, and for the cost to repair, it makes more sense to either buy a new one (for $100 LESS than we paid for this one), or just go with a different MiniPC device for even less.
Summary: I was excited to purchase this for my elderly mother to save me from having to update her computer and fix problems constantly. The Chromebox started up in 4 seconds, had some difficulty connecting to the ethernet, but then everything ran as expected. As I started to explain to her how everything was laid out, I figured out that with this machine there is no way to install a printer.
