Summary: Wow! I got this computer for my brother-in-law after his laptop died on him. I recovered his old hard drive, popped in 4GB of memory, and got everything set up. My intent was to have a computer able to work with Skype, the internet, and not much else. What an amazing little box! It's more poweful than the Sempron 2500+ with GeForce 6600GT full sized computer in my daughter's room, clocking in around 8500 on 3DMark2001.
Pros: Powerful computer in a little box! Pop in a hard drive, memory, and GO! Great USB, Wifi, Card Reader, onboard CPU/GPU.
Cons: Lack of DVD drive means some complications setting up. Only HDMI out.
Summary: Great little device, powerful enough to play back 1080p videos. I use it in the office to do video conference, it hangs behind the TV , I hooked it up to a HD webcam works great with skype. If you get a USB hug to expand USB ports, get a powered USB hub.
Pros: Small, Wifi, energy efficient, bluetooth 3.0, Gigabit LAN, USB 3.0
Summary: I bought this to replace a full-sized HTPC build that I had built in the spring of 2011. The E-350 runs between 65C and 75C under load when watching HD video content and does a great job of doing so. The AMD chipset (Radeon 6310) also allows bitsteam audio for playing Dolby True HD and DTS MA HD blu-ray streams. It also allows playback of high definition audio as well. I originally ran the mini-PC with an SSD and it ran quite well.
Pros: Size. Great HD Video and Audio Bitstreaming
Cons: Processor a little lacking. CPU temperature causes hard drive to run warmer (high 40's).
