4 out of 5 eggsBeautiful Small Server Solution

Pros: Small form factor, easy setup, VGA mount, built in HDMI and internal speaker, USB 3.0, 64-bit support with drivers!

Currently using one as a web server and a second as a mail server. Both perform very well with Ubuntu server software installed. Windows installs did well for general web browsing and light weight video watching.

Cons: Not strong enough for 1080p mkv files and 1080 streaming with Netflix or Hulu.

Other Thoughts: My initial purchase was for an HTPC build with the expectation of constant Netflix use or 1080p downloads. The unit handles MP4 files very well in consideration of it's limited power. It is capable of using 64 bit OSes and 8Gb of RAM. The driver support for 64 bit is the primary selling factor for me. I was unable to use this as an HTPC because it can't handle 1080 Netflix streams but I was able to convert to servers easily and use a third as a regular desktop for simple web browsing. The VESA mounting brackets are awesome and work very well with standard monitors. Very satisfied overall and would recommend for lightweight internet or server use. ( I caught a deal on this with an ADATA 64Gb SSD which was just icing on the cake!)

3 out of 5 eggsruns awfully warm at idle

Pros: When I bought this it came with a 64G Adata SSD tossed in and that was great for my purposes, and make it very cost effective. I'm running linux with an Arduino board connected with a temp sensor. works fine and takes up little space.

Cons: This sits in a room kept at 65 degrees (with minimal fluctuation). Once a minute the Arduino board send a temp over USB. The script on this logs the temp.

What's my point? I'm surpised by how warm the exhaust air is coming from it, given that it's in a cool room and is doing so little.

For my purposes I should have gotten an Atom chip, I suspect, but that model didn't come with the free SSD.

1 out of 5 eggsOne Fatal Flaw

Pros: It is an inexpensive, and basically decent piece of hardware. Runs Windows 7 just fine, and it makes a great media center machine.

Cons: Using the included power adapter can fry devices you hook this computer up to!

Other Thoughts: I was using the computer as a Media Center. Hooked via HDMI to my Onkyo receiver I noticed an intermittent LOUD 60 cycle hum through the speakers while using it. Being that it was all HDMI digital connections, there should have been no way for hum to get in the audio. I took some measurements and was floored! I compared voltages between the power brick included with this computer, and some laptops I had laying around. I was looking for AC isolation problems, and I found them! All the other power bricks I have, "float" their DC power out connectors between the hot and neutral of the AC input. If you measure from either the hot or neutral of the AC outlet to the tips of the DC out connector, you get about half the line voltage. I measured 40-60 volts potential between the outlet and the DC connector. There is sufficient resistance to eliminate the potential for shock, but there is a voltage potential. When I measured the brick that came with the computer, I saw something very different. Both sides of the tip are tied to the AC neutral. Measuring from neutral to the tip gave zero volts. However measuring from the AC hot to the tip gave 120 volts! This is not a problem for the computer itself, because the voltage potential between the contacts at the DC tip is the proper 19 volts DC. However, when you hook this up to a device using a different grounding method, like "floating" between the AC line inputs, you can have quite a voltage develop between the two different device grounds which will be carried down your HDMI cable. I'll say again there is a good bit of isolation between the computer ground and the wall outlet. Also there is some isolation between the ground and the AC line in the peripheral device you hook up (Monitor, big screen, stereo, whatever) But since the isolation methods are different, there is a voltage potential between grounds. I observed this potential as a ground loop hum, and also as a visible (but small) spark that appeared when I hooked it up to the stereo, or the TV. Unfortunately the last effect I observed was damage to the HDMI input on my television. It burned out one of my televisions inputs. Needless to say, I am NOT happy. I believe if you use a different power brick (which uses the floating setup like most other components do today) you will have no problem. The power adapter from a Gateway NV53 laptop works nicely, it has the right voltage, and the same tip that the computer uses (Liteon part number pa-1650-22). If you are experiencing any audio hum when hooked to your other devices STOP USING IT IMMEDIATELY!! Don't let it burn up your equipment like it did mine! Hopefully this saves someone some real grief.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Plenty fast with 32gb mSSD HD, 4gb RAM. All the ports i could ever need, quiet, about as small as they come.

Cons: I originally got this machine to replace a tower as my media PC, it works great on Youtube and many TV streaming sites, however i've found that on high quality Hulu and Xfinity TV, (at least with windows 7) it gets super laggy. I've figured out its just maxing out the CPU, once i turned the quality to medium, it works just fine. I can't complain for $125, it would cost $400 or so to build up a i5 or i7 machine that can do the high quality computing, so for the money, this was by far the best choice. But if you're looking for the ultimate video machine and have more money, you might try one of the slightly larger Foxconn boxes that can take an i5 or i7.

3 out of 5 eggsmixed feelings, bad bios (I think)

Pros: Form factor is great. The price is right, even when it's not on sale.
Great features (though I wish the wifi was centrino, and wish it had esata).
It's quiet, even when the fan comes on, but you can hear it when you're within a few feet of it.
Once it's running, it runs pretty well. I haven't had any issues with video nor with flash (running xubuntu 12.04 with catalyst 13.1 drivers, xbmc runs well (search for "Howto Install XBMC PVR Xvba" - it'll be in xbmc forums), and it supports hardware h264 decode and xvba)

Cons: It doesn't boot reliably. When it doesn't boot, it doesn't post, neither hdd nor usb get power (no hdd light; no light on usb thumbdrive; no keyboard lights), but cpu fan spins up and it just sits there.
On the original bios, it would only post once every 10 - 20 times. I saw similar posts about this, so I kept at it until I could get the bios flashed.
I've tried 2 other bios images (03 and 10)... 03 seems to work the best for me, but I haven't tried others because it takes forever to get it to post to where you can fix it if it goes flakey again, and 10 was just about as bad as 01 for me.
With bios 03, it boots (posts) about 4 out of 5 times.
My guess is that it's picky about the memory. Bios has no way to change the timings, so I can't try that. I know it's not simply bad memory, because it works far more reliably with the bios 03 update.

I also had an issue with the HDMI out, but it worked reliably with a different HDMI cable, so I'm chalking that up to a bad cable. Who knows though, maybe it's picky about that as well.

Other Thoughts: This is my second unit. The first one was even worse, and I was never able to get the bios flashed. I did get it to post and boot into freedos on usb thumb drive twice, but didn't have the bios image in the right spot, and never got it to post again. Tried everything (except new ram, because I don't have any other ddr3 so dimms).

I also had a shipping issue, which has nothing to do with the product, but I don't know where else to say this. I got the first unit, RMA'd, spent the extra money for UPS (as opposed to fedex+usps via smartpost), but the replacement was shipped fedex smartpost, and I never got it. It bounced around, and I couldn't track it down, so it got restocked eventually, which cost me money.

I didn't knock any eggs off for shipping. I just think the bios issues deserve the loss of 2 eggs. This isn't a very new product... they should be shipping them with updated bios.

4 out of 5 eggsRuns HOT

Pros: It is small and uses little electricity.

Cons: I mounted on the back of my monitor (I am satisfied with the mount. It is not that loose.), and it runs very hot. It runs between 70-93. I drilled about 10 holes on the cover near the fan, and it probably lowered 1 degree or so. I took if off the mount and put it on the table, and it was still going over 90 degrees. It runs HOT when i am watching hulu. Other tasks are OK.

My microsoft RF mouse has some lag on this computer whereas it is fine with my 4 core fast computer.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I am happy with the purchase.

BTY, when I reversed the antenna wires (just as the reviewers said), the reception got much worse. Yes, I checked the colors of the wires.

$6 Used 2GB memory
$15 used Sata hard drive
Free Linux mint
$3 short dvi cable

4 out of 5 eggsSweet low-power machine.

Pros: - Sweet appearance. Thought I would've preferred black but this was what was on sale and I don't regret choosing the white.

- All ports and the card reader worked. (Couldn't test SPDIF but it glows..)

- Wi-Fi works fine (I checked, and the cables were not reversed as other reviewers have experienced).

- Actually has a decent (loud, though mono) internal speaker to my surprise. Better volume than my HDMI monitor's internal speakers.

- Good experience installing my favorite flavor of Ubuntu, Lubuntu 12.04 -- Though currently running Windows 7 Pro x64 with no issues.

- Did not buy this for gaming and wouldn't recommend it for modern gaming, but I've found some older DirectX 8 and 9 games are well off with this unit. For example, I play Final Fantasy XI with some high-resolution enhancing tweaks and it runs beautifully.

- Extremely low power draw under active use! Kill-A-Watt meter shows between 18 and 22 watts (with an SSD for what it's worth), this is less than the 25w bulb in my lava lamp.

Cons: Intended to use a 4GB ram stick hijacked from my laptop with this but it would not post with the high performance ADATA module. Went to a local store and got an 8GB Kingston module (the only 8GB one on the approved vendor list found on their support site) and it works great.

The manufacturer recommended memory list should have been provided with the documentation or on the devices' specs page. I would never have found it if another Newegg reviewer had not mentioned its existence.

I strongly dislike tab/latch secured plastic panels and mine was warped (it can't "seal") near the DVI port, brand new out-of-the-box. This case was not designed to be opened more than a couple times and it probably wouldn't have cost them any more in the manufacturing end to put a little better engineering into the access panel. Minus one egg for this.

Other Thoughts: My VESA mounting kit is not loose, it fits securely on the back of my ASUS 23.6" 1080p monitor.

Paired this with an inexpensive Encore external 7.1 USB sound card because my Logitech 5.1 speaker system is great- but it's from 2004 and doesn't support SPDIF. I now have a great Hi-Fi, extremely low power system that doesn't make me flinch about running it 24/7 for music and web browsing. When ~1.5TB-2TB 2.5" HDDs become more affordable, it will be a great media server as well.

I live in Texas and am always concerned about heat generation. The E-350 APU has a much higher max temp rating than conventional CPUs so don't be alarmed with 85c temp readings, as this is designed to be safe up to 90c. Fortunately, the system's low power exhaust doesn't actually pump out much hot air when compared to my slim XBOX or even my 15.6" AMD A6-4400M 2.7GHz laptop.

3 out of 5 eggsStutter with 1080p

Pros: Small, compact, cheap

Cons: Stutter with VLC playing 1080p contents on Windows 8. I haven't tried too many other things yet but so far it's not performing too well on 1080p contents. Might have to switch it to Win7 or Media player classic to see if things would improve

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer
We apologize for the inconvenience. Where did you get 1080p files,USB-ROM or downloaded ? If possible please change usb3.0 port to have a test .

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Does Netflix at 1080 good. Small and compact. Easy to assembly hard drive and RAM.

Cons: Hard to take off cover. Documentation is very poor. Screws are small and can easily be worn out.

Other Thoughts: Suggest that cover be held with clear tape. Keep tape away from air vent. If screws are used to reassembly and the heads are worn they will be hard to remove without damaging the case and the system board.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive Little Box

Pros: Small, Quiet, Light, Easy to open, hard drive easy to mount, memory easy to install.

Cons: The mounting bracket, which allows attaching to the back of a monitor, is a rather loose fit. Unit will simply fall out if not better secured. I used a single large zip tie.

Other Thoughts: I needed something light and portable that could support a bigger screen than my laptop. I paired this with an HP W2072a - a 20" monitor with 1600x900 resolution. I installed Windows 8 x86 (the 32 bit version) and it runs beautifully. To try out video playback, I went to YouTube and ran the trailer for the new Wolverine movie. It ran smoothly and looked great. This little box will make a nice HPTC unit and with a big hard drive you could store a vast number of songs and movies.

A final note: Windows 8 installed perfectly. Every required driver was installed and functioned correctly. I did update it with the AMD Vision Engine and the latest video driver so I would have better control of the display. I also tested it with Ubuntu Unity and Xubuntu. Performance on both was very acceptable and installation was a snap with all hardware working as it should. The AMD Vision engine can be installed as well.

Bottom line is if you need a starter PC for your kid, an HPTC machine, or just a simple, capable, all-around machine for browsing and email from granny, you can't beat this little box for bang for the buck. Awesome little machine for its small size and small price.
