2 out of 5 eggsGreat at first but ASRock service is terrible

Pros: This is a neat HTPC with all the power you need for streaming and Blue-Ray viewing. It's small, uses very little power when suspended and is quiet enough not to be heard.

Cons: My unit broke twice in the first year with faulty HDMI ports. ASRock replaced the unit the first time but the second time gave me the run-around wanting $100 to replace the unit even though it was under warranty. All the stuff you hear on the web about ASRock's poor service is unfortunately true.

Other Thoughts: It may seem like a good solution, but next time I'll build my own. At least then I can fix whatever goes wrong and I can avoid any components made by ASRock.

5 out of 5 eggsAll I hoped for

Pros: i3-370M appears to have all the power needed to play all your DVD's without issue. Driver installs from CD were easy. The remote works well enough for my techno-phobic wife to play her DVD's and Netflix streaming without needing my help :)

Cons: The software for BD playback is only trial ware - not worth my time to get hooked on something if it is not the best option. Should have been OEM version. Haven't yet researched the best retail BD player software for Windows.

Other Thoughts: 1) Installed Windows 7 HP 64-bit with no issues.

2) I haven't tried the Blu-Ray playback yet - see con.

3) Don't have a 7.1 CH audio system, so not sure about full enjoyment of audio playback.

4) Previously I was using an Atom 330/ION netbook for an HTPC - pitiful playback performance compared to this.

5) I've been putting together a wishlist of parts to build my own HTPC in a box this small, and the pricing was coming up about the same. ASRock saved me from all that manual labor!

5 out of 5 eggsMini HTPC

Pros: Fantastic for use as a HTPC. I wish i could replace all of my xbox360 and DMA2200 extenders with this mini HTPC. Unit is very quiet, and even when it revs up, you don't notice it while watching videos/movies. Blu Ray drive is definitely a plus. Great price, fast shipping as always.

Cons: The only con I have is that the included wireless adapter is 2.4ghz only. It does not see my 5GHZ N network.

Other Thoughts: Great HTPC.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome little computer

Pros: Awesome little machine. It does everything I need it too. Windows Ultimate 7 went on it with no problems. I have very limited space and while it is bigger than my acer aspire revo 1600 it has the blu-ray drive in it, versus my old setup with a samsung external one. Currently have it set up with the microsoft arc keyboard and mouse. Bumped the memory to 8GB cause I had it, although the 4 it comes with is plenty if you are using it as just an HTPC. I am currently using this as my school computer/htpc for my bedroom. Video playback is awesome on my 47 inch tv, and currently have it rigged up with a USB tv-tuner so I can record tv directly onto it.

Overall this barebone was great, it had everything I needed in it and I picked it up while it was on sale, combined with the free copy of Win Ult 7 I got from my school and the memory I had already and this comp is great.

Cons: Still trying to figure out how to get the remote to work with windows 7 ultimate. It may just not work with it, but thats not neweggs fault

Other Thoughts: Eventually I am going to remove the hard drive and replace with a SSD between 80-120, and fit the current hard drive with an external case.
