5 out of 5 eggsExcellent computer

Pros: I have purchased about 10 of these so far. Fabulous little computers. Small, quiet, fast (if you put in a good cpu and SSD), and relatively inexpensive. Really impressed so far. Been using them going back to the previous version, and I've not had any problems with either model. Even bought one for home for streaming TV. works perfect. Dual nics and serial ports are a nice touch. Video port options are great.

Cons: Really nothing significant. Esata would be nice in place of one of the serial ports, but that's getting pretty picky.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat form factor- Has limitations

Pros: This is an amazing little computer. I bought it to build a small DAW workstation. It fits WONDERFULLY in the limited space that I had for it.

Cons: This machine is INCREDIBLY picky about RAM and Processors. You have to follow their certified RAM. Don't deviate from it at all. Also watch your TDP. You can't exceed what they list. If you do, your power supply will QUICKLY over heat and then automatically shut itself down...thus quickly ending your computing experience...very abruptly. Honestly this power supply is incredibly under powered for what the internals can handle.

Other Thoughts: I think I'd buy another one...but I might look for something that's a little bit larger and isn't as picky with RAM, CPU, and TDP. They really need to supply a more powerful power supply. I'll likely end up swapping this one out for something that can deliver more power without over heating so quickly.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat mobile lab

Pros: DS81 build
Core I7-4790S @3.2GHz
16GB G. SKILL Ripjaws DDR3 1600
Msata Mushkin 240GB SSD
2TB HGST 2.5" 5400 RPM
Kingston 32GB SD card

Dual NICs
8 USB ports

This thing is small, fast & quiet runs, ESXi like a champ, dosen't skip a beat with 10 VMs running also dual boots to Windows Thin PC on the SSD

Cons: Power brick uses a C5 power cable, Not really a con since I've seen allot more of these now days.

SD card doesn't go all the way in it sticks out abt half way
Realtek NIC are tough, couldn't install ESXi 5.5 had to slipstream drivers from 5.1

No audio jacks on the back

Other Thoughts: More ram, it would be nice if they had a model where you sacrifice the m-SATA and mini pci-e slots for more RAM

Internal SD card slot would be nice

Intel NIC options

Fans at full speed are a bit noise.

Do want to try and install PFsense directly to the box but for now its vitalized

I am thinking of using theses little guys at work for a few projects we've got coming up, we'll have to see how this one holds up.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Design

Pros: Easy to assemble
Lots of USB
Standard size HDMI

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: Took 15 minutes to be up and running with a 2.5" drive from my old laptop. Put a Linksys AC580 USB Wireless adapter.
Very quiet!
