Designed to redefine what the ultra computing could be, the GIGABYTE BRIX barebone system combines performance and stylish design, based around an anthracite aluminum frame and glass surface chassis. Ideal for a broad range of computing applications at home or in the office, the BRIX expounds sheer simplicity and convenience. With state-of-the-art components and technology, the BRIX sets a new standard for desktop miniaturization. It's perfect for use as a discreet HTPC/multimedia hub, an ultra-low power PC for the family, an office PC, or as a digital signage unit.

Cutting-Edge Performance

The dual-core, quad-thread Intel Core i3-3227U processor delivers exceptional parallel computing capability to deal with your everyday tasks: Internet surfing, HD movies, and more. 17W Max TDP means lower heat generation, less dissipation cost, and reduced electrical cost compared to standard Intel Core processors.
Dual Display

With support for HDMI and DisplayPort, the BRIX can power two displays simultaneously.  It's a perfect choice as a high-productivity PC in professional and home environments, or in any number of industrial and commercial multi-display applications.
Flexible Compact PC Kit

The BRIX is offered as a DIY PC kit, shipping with a Wi-Fi Mini PCIe module pre-installed, plus a power adapter and cable conforming to local standards. Requiring only system memory and mSATA SSD, the BRIX gives users the flexibility to independently choose integrated storage and system memory size, without the trouble of sourcing components that are not widely available on the retail market.
VESA Support

Bundled with a VESA bracket, the BRIX can easily be mounted behind a monitor or HDTV, making it discreetly hidden from view. This makes it a simple and effective way to turn any VESA-compliant display or TV into a full-featured PC or digital signage unit.

5 out of 5 eggsEverything I hoped

Pros: + Remarkably peppy: CPU is on par with my gaming rig.
+ Eerily silent
+ Tiny!
+ VESA Mounting makes for a snazzy all-in-one
+ USB 3.0 and built-in WiFi card work like a charm

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Haven't yet tried Linux on it, but on paper anyway support looks promising.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome HTPC or office workstation

Pros: Even smaller than Intel's NUC and comes with WiFi. Win 7 installed no problems loads extremely fast. Quiet.

Cons: None, unless your looking for a gaming or editing PC. That is not the purpose of this. Although maybe with Haswell it might have a chance.

Other Thoughts: If you have fan issues there is a BIOS update on gigabyte's website.

4 out of 5 eggsGood PC

Pros: mounts on a monitor; low power use; wifi & power cord & vesa mount included; price not bad for CPU + motherboard + case + wifi + power supply; seems very fast, probably because of the SSD; runs linux without any driver issues.

Cons: The fan can be annoying. It's almost silent when the machine isn't in use, but as you use the CPU, the fan's pitch oscillates and volume fluctuates--kind of distracting.

Other Thoughts: Great machine. The Intel Haswell version of Brix will probably be a bit faster, and the AMD Kabini version will probably be a bit cheaper, but this one is pretty great and here now.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little device

Pros: Small, low power and mountable!

Cons: More expensive than I would like, though the cpu is the main culprit in this case and that is intel's doing.
