5 out of 5 eggsDoes the job that I was hoping for

Pros: plays videos without any stuttering, including those with newer compression codecs, device drivers on tiny USB stick install without any problems, supports 8GB of RAM, smaller and less noisy that previous mini-computer, has USB 3.0 ports.

Cons: Can't really use the Hard Drive mounting screws that come with the unit due to the way the Hard Drive is mounted but you really should not need to use them. Neither the manufacturer website or Newegg indicate the specific dual-core Celeron processor it uses (although they both did when I bought my first - I now onn two)

Other Thoughts: I have a 3 year older mini-computer with the Atom N330 CPU and 4GB of RAM that had problems running video smoothly (a lot of stuttering of the video when playing newer video files that I think use newer compression codecs - no problems with older files). That is really all that I use if for but since it was not working well on the newer video files, I decided to get a newer mini, low-power computer. I was a little surprised that the online performance reviews did not show much of a performance difference between the Atom N330 and the Celeron 847, but i was hoping that with this unit capable of using 8GB of memory, I would get enough of a performance upgrade to play the newer videos. It does and I have not had any problems playing any of my newer video files.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great as HTPC/XBMC

Pros: Easy to set up and get running. Runs quiet and cool. Throw some memory and a hard drive in it and go! Runs Windows 7 64 bit just fine.

Cons: No HDD light? Maybe mine doesn't work? Wish it were a tad faster, or I could overclock it just a bit. Set at 720P (I have an older plasma TV) It still suffers from some sync issues on Netflix. (Video and audio don't match). I'm not sure if this is an internet speed issue, or a processing power/memory issue. XBMC seems to run fine. I went with 4GB memory, 6GB may be better.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for a basic TVPC

Pros: Small and quiet. USB 3.0 and DDR3 RAM. HDMI output. Got mine while the DVD drive was free.

Does its intended job quite well (albeit not speedily).

Cons: Low power is LOW power. Not that I really expected much else, but this Celeron 847 is... slow... Mine's currently running a standard hard drive; gonna swap it for an SSD when I have time (gotta move it from another machine). Hopefully that will improve the responsiveness of the system.

Other Thoughts: I'm running Windows 7 Pro on mine. It works perfectly fine for its intended use (a cheap replacement for a power hungry Pentium 4 TVPC), but its not as quick as I'd hoped it would be. Hoping that the SSD swap will make up for it.

All in all, I'm happy with it for what I paid. It's small, quiet, and I can actually HEAR my TV shows instead of the computer's roaring fan! lol

4 out of 5 eggsNano price, Nano size, Nano PC

Pros: Low price; tiny size, ample processing power; comes with free DVD burner; nice clean look; plenty USB ports; wifi N equipped; impressive mini speaker inside; easy to install other hardware with included case remover + screw driver tool; VESA mount included; convenient USB flash stick loaded with critical drivers; magnetic buttons is a very cool touch to attaching the DVD burner right next to the Nano PC; also comes with a vertical stand if you don't like mounting the unit; power supply takes universal voltage; 1080p files play smoothly; and Newegg delivered my order within 3 days from multiple warehouses.

Cons: only 1 RAM slot; its dual core Celeron 847 is enough for HD 1080p files, web browsing, and other light use but too choppy for streaming HBOgo; wifi N reception is rather weak so you will likely need to plug in the ethernet jack for long internet streaming; not exactly a noiseless cooling fan, but the fan is not annoyingly loud either;

Other Thoughts: I installed a 4GB sodimm + 60GB SSD with Win7 64 bit without any problem. Love the blue power light with the magnetic attachment for the DVD drive...dare I say, the cool look resembles Apple products? Played all my HD 1080p files smoothly. Just encountered a little choppy playback on a file or two, but problem was quickly resolved when switching to VLC 64bit player. Overall, I am quite happy with this purchase as a cheap HTPC hidden behind my TV. Just remember the white color model is cheaper than the black, and it comes with a free DVD burner.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty decent

Pros: Works as promised running CentOS 6.5. Wireless is now embedded on main board. Came with a little tool to help get the cover open.

Cons: mPCIe slot is only for wireless, doesn't work for mSATA drive but not worth docking a star because it never claimed to work this way.

Other Thoughts: Wireless seems a little slow on both units that I bought, but it does work. Didn't try the Linpus OS that seems to have been included.

This computer is not a real powerhouse (Celeron 847), buy it for what it is and you won't be disappointed.

4 out of 5 eggsMakes a decent media player

Pros: I bought this unit to turn into a XMBC media center. The CPU has plenty of power to handle even the most demanding skins, and the hardware supports decoding of the two formats I need - MPEG2 and H.264. I've also tried booting the unit into Linux Mint and it worked well for basic operations, though I would imagine running any heavy applications or games might be a no-go.

Cons: The product page lists this device as "noiseless", but it is not. There is a fan on the CPU that runs continuously, and along with the usual whirring noise, this fan also emits an extremely high pitched (around 12-13 kHz) tone. It's one of those tones that if you turn your head just right it will go away. My advice is to find a place to put the device where the sound can be blocked.

Also, I've found that when I power off the machine, either through software or by holding the power button for 5 seconds, sometimes it will suddenly power itself back on after a few seconds. This seems to happen every other time I power it off. I've upgraded the BIOS to the latest version, but I still encounter this problem.

I've had issues decoding some of the MPEG2 steams I capture over the airwaves (ATSC broadcasts). Since I capture these through an antenna they can often have glitches that I expect to see as blocks or stuttering of the video and audio. But, at least when running OpenELEC, this device will often freeze the video completely for about 5-20 seconds while still playing the audio, then play the video at about 16x normal speed to catch up. I tried playing the same video file under vlc and didn't see the same problem, so I suspect this is due to a software problem in OpenELEC or XBMC.

Other Thoughts: The CPU in this device is a Celeron 847. I did some tests with a kill-a-watt to measure the power consumption of the device with a 4 GB memory module and no hard drive (I'm booting it off the network). When idle it draws 15 watts. While decoding video, I saw numbers between 15 and 20 watts. Even with the CPU running hot it never got above 21 watts. Not bad for power efficiency.
