Redefining the Desktop PC

Challenging the essence of how we define a desktop PC, GIGABYTE engineers have developed an ultra compact PC with a 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 a broad choice of processors covering the entire performance spectrum, the BRIX sets a new standard for desktop miniaturization that makes it perfect as a discreet HTPC/multimedia hub, an ultra-low power PC for the family, an office PC or as a digital signage unit.


Dual Display

With support for HDMI and DisplayPort, the BRIX can power two displays simultaneously, making it 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 sold 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 an 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 a simple and effective way to turn any VESA-compliant display or TV into a full-featured PC or digital signage unit.

3 out of 5 eggsNice unit - but too slow

Pros: Small size, good design, sturdy construction, quiet operation

Cons: CPU underpowered for my application

Other Thoughts: This was a great little unit, but the CPU I selected was too slow for my application which required a bit of video processing (to drive security cameras). I tried the higher powered version with a Core i5 CPU, but it had problems booting (blank screen) - so unfortunately, I cannot really recommend the Brix. I am going to try the Intel NUC and see if I have better luck...

1 out of 5 eggsNot great for XBMC

Pros: Great price, small, quiet

Cons: Only has 64MB of shared video memory and there is no option to change in the bios. Videos will stutter/drop frames using Openelec. Typically drops around 4 frames per hour. I have other less powerful boxes that run Openelec and drop 0 frames.

Other Thoughts: Contacted Gigabyte to see if there were plans to allow you to modify shared video memory in the bios and they did not respond. I will be returning this item.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat OpenELEC value

Pros: Great price
Small form factor
Silent
low power consumption

Cons: Only 2 USB ports
Couple bugs in the firmware (see other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: This device works excellent as an openELEC home theater PC when combined with 2GB of ram and a small USB flash drive as the boot device. Plays extremely high bitrate MKV with DTS audio flawlessly, no stuttering whatsoever (CPU usage never goes above 15% on either core).

There is however, an issue that pops up occasionally when trying to reboot the device - it comes up with a CPU Fan Error (this never happens from a cold start, only during reboot).

Could use another USB port or two, but overall this was a great purchase and a real step up from the Raspberry Pi I was using to stream HD videos.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, with gotchas

Pros: Small, low power, neat VESA bracket included.

Cons: Not enough USB ports, no DVI/VGA ports, no sound out, lack of ports makes for more mess (external sound card, external USB hub, etc).

Other Thoughts: I bought this for a simple web browser/Skype/movie player machine for a family member. It is working great!

Here some potential stumbling blocks:

1) It had no audio out. I bought the monitor without noticing this, so I got an HDMI monitor with no speakers (derp). Consequently, I had to get a USB sound card and external speakers, which added greatly to the bulk of the finished computer. You can avoid this by buying a monitor with HDMI in and built-in speakers. (I tried to get her to let me just connect it to her TV, which has HDMI in AND speakers, but switching inputs was too much complexity for her.)

2) As one might expect from a tiny machine, it takes laptop-sized (204-pin) DDR3, not desktop-sized 240-pin modules.

3) If you've never worked on laptops before, you might not even know what msata is. Be sure to get an msata drive. They be teeny. ;)

4) It has TWO USB ports. I needed more, which meant a hub, which meant more wires and connections, which further took away from its original purpose (which was to be compact, tiny, and hard to screw up).

I didn't do any benchmarking, but I put 8 gigs of RAM and a zippy little Intel SSD in it, and it performs very nicely for the simple stuff that is asked of it (web browsing, video playing, and Skype), even with rather aggressive antivirus software.

5 out of 5 eggsExtremely Cool

Pros: Amazing amount of computing power in a very small volume. Fully capable of HD Video streaming, and should work well as either a mid level desktop for space-deprived locations, or as a Home Theater/Media machine, using external storage for the media, of course.

Cons: Needs more USB ports, and a USB 3.0 port would be very welcome. A USB hub can serve instead, but adds bulk and wires. Any meaningful storage will have to be external, such as an external USB drive.

Other Thoughts: For those who have bad experiences assembling computer systems (and you can count me in that group), this mini-barebone computer is about as easy as it gets. All you have to add is 1 or 2 sticks of DDR3 Sodimm memory, and an MSATA drive, unless you want to run a small Linux distro and boot off of a flash drive. For limited office use, you could get by with strictly an MSATA drive of a larger size, say 128gb, with data backup to another external drive. This should work well as a media pc running Windows Home Media Center, or one of those Linux distros such as MythTV, although any stored media will probably need to be on an external drive.

4 out of 5 eggsJ.E

Pros: Tiny form factor, completely silent operation, VESA bracket included, 802.11n mini PCIe module included. Just drop in an mSATA SSD, some memory and you're good to go.

Cons: Would have liked audio out and maybe more USB ports. Uses USB 2.0.

Other Thoughts: This little box makes a perfect HTPC for the bedroom. Used the included VESA bracket to mount it behind a 26" Samsung TV. It streams HD video from Plex Media Server just fine. Same with an HDHomerun through Windows Media Center - though you probably shouldn't have extended viewing sessions due to the SSD. Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, etc. all fine. Overall pleased with the product.

5 out of 5 eggs  amazing little box

Pros: Small, light, low power, and quiet. Can be mounted on the back of a monitor. Comes with wireless network card already installed.

Cons: Lacks audio output. Could use more USB connectors. Limited to mSata type storage devices.

Other Thoughts: The fact that it uses a Celeron processor might give the impression that it lacks computing power. This latest generation Celeron however, is as fast as the older generation Core2 processors. It's comparable to a Core2 pentium running at. 2.66MHz. Plenty fast enough to run Windows 8 comfortably. I'm running Ubuntu 13.10 and it blazes. I'm slowly replacing all my large desktops with these NUC type computers. The only thing it won't do we'll is gaming. The limited availability and capacity of mSata drives is another serious issue. But, for typical desktop work, this tiny unit is an outstanding value.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: Form Factor
Power Consumption
Performance to Dollar Price Point

Cons: The only cons i have with this unit would not effect most people.

No Ability for raid
No PCI/-e Expansion

Other Thoughts: This hardware is amazing. There is a model for almost any performance level. I use these units in an enterprise environment, I can fit approximately 50 Brix in 1U of rack space, and each unit consumes no more than .3 AMP's of power under load.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Better Than Expected

Pros: Does it all Plays my MKV files over wireless network no delay. Cant hear if its even on, quiet.

Cons: Does what you need as far as playback of most HD media but i3 supports some HD functions for play back on chip where as the Celeron needs software. No big deal just little higher CPU usage (under 20% play back MKV 1080 video over the wireless network))

Other Thoughts: Love it perfect, low cost
