1 out of 5 eggsFool me twice, shame on you.

This review is from: GIGABYTE GB-BXi5-4570R 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 Black Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: It's cute, tiny and dare I say sexy.

Cons: It runs hot. The first unit locked up before I could get W7 installed, the second unit didn't even make it that far. Maybe if I installed it in the freezer it would have survived but apparently sitting in free air on my bar was just too much for it. Too much stuff to cram into such a small space.

For this much money I'll go get a souped up XT frame and use that for my streaming video machine.

Other Thoughts: I would be so happy.jpg if these things were tested before they go out the door. Gigabyte's tech support was pretty quick and thorough (appreciated!) but I won't go down this road again.

5 out of 5 eggsGB-4570R

This review is from: GIGABYTE GB-BXi5-4570R 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 Black Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: Small but powerful unit. Sits behind monitor and does its job. Almost silent operation.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Got this for my wife and was very impressed with the performance, so much so that I paired it with a 29" LG 2560 x 1080 monitor. We'll be taking in on our vacations with a lot of media loaded on the 250GB mSATA drive and an additional 256 SSD. You need to bring your own evening entertainment to the hither lands of far eastern Maine.

1 out of 5 eggsGigabyte Brix 4570R DOA

This review is from: GIGABYTE GB-BXi5-4570R 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 Black Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: Right now I don't have any Pro's for this product yet.

Cons: I ordered this last Sunday, Dec. 28, 2014, arrived yesterday, Dec. 31, 2014. As soon as I got home, I tested it out. Installed a RAM and a 500gb SSHD, tried powering it on, but no response. I then checked everything, power adapter, power cable, tried it out again, still nothing. I was hoping that I could play around this today, but I dont think that's gonna happen. My 2015 starts with a RMA process for this. Too bad because I was really looking forward on trying this little bad boy out.

Other Thoughts: I am giving this a 1 egg rating because it was a DOA item, which in my opinion should not happen given the price point of the product. Maybe a bit more higher quality of inspection and testing from Gigabyte will avoid this kind of issues in the future, The Newegg agent that I talked to via chat was helpful and the RMA process was one of the quickest process I have ever encountered. Hopefully the replacement would get here as soon as possible.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat System .. replaces AIO

This review is from: GIGABYTE GB-BXi5-4570R 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 Black Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: This is small, so if size is a factor, it's great. Processor/graphics are better than the Intel NUC's. For a non hard-core gaming machine, it is great. I love that it has a VESA mount .. I have it mounted behind a 27" Monitor on my kitchen desk for the kids to use.

I put in a Samsung EVO 500GB drive & 16GB of Crucial CT2K8G3S160BM memory. Windows experience index is:
Processor - 7.4
Memory - 7.9
Graphics - 6.9
Gaming graphics - 6.9
Primary hard disk 7.9

Cons: You do have to read the on-line instructions on proper bios settings if you install anything other than Windows 8. I could live w/o the bright red color.

Other Thoughts: My 2010 Dell All-in-one is well past it's 3yr extended warranty. That unit required numerous trips from a service technician, so I was concerned about buying another one. I bought this instead & mounted it behind a 27" monitor .. it's just like an all in one, except the USB ports are a little harder to get to. Overall works great for my needs ... kids playing moderate games, steaming, MS Office.

1 out of 5 eggsSingle hdmi output not possible

This review is from: GIGABYTE GB-BXi5-4570R 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 Black Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: Was buying it for htpc purpose, but very disappointed to not be able use HDMi output.

Cons: Was buying it for htpc purpose, but very disappointed to not be able use HDMi output. It only works with mini dp to hdmi adapter in single display mode. There is no way to change default output from mini dp to hdmi.

4 out of 5 eggsFast and fun

This review is from: GIGABYTE GB-BXi5-4570R 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 Black Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: Runs very fast for the form factor, not much to argue with in that regard. Noise levels are subjective, but I do not believe they're as bad as many reviews make them out to be, at least not on the latest couple point releases of the firmware. Quite manageable in a living room for HTPC purposes as when you are gaming the noise is easily drowned out. Temps do run high and that is concerning, but everything still operates within manufacturer specs for the various vendors I've kitted into the machine. Real world performance on games seems better than a lot of reviewers are providing - not sure why that is, but my frames are better. Could just be more modern drivers providing the increases.

Cons: Heat, as above, may be a long term issue. But that's not a con yet.

Hardware issues have been stated in numerous reviews. I had one box that was DOA from another seller. It would not boot an OS no matter what - in spite of what you may have read elsewhere about all the BIOS settings re-jiggering. Returned that, bought from Newegg, this one runs superb. Beware of these defective units that some have mentioned if you absolutely need to deploy this machine with a very quick turnaround.

Other Thoughts: Pretty happy with it thusfar. I'm sure a year from now the hardware will be even more fantastic. Unless you need the hardware now, you might be better off holding out a few months for the Broadwell silicon.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little box!

This review is from: GIGABYTE GB-BXi5-4570R 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 Black Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: This tiny box is serving as a new kind of hybrid computer: a portable desktop. It's fast, quiet (haven't heard a sound), has all the ports one needs, and, did I say, is tiny. It was a breeze to install two 8 GB Crucial memory chips and a Samsung Evo SSD, install windows, and go! I was impressed that the BIOS recognized my wireless mouse and keyboard. I had one issue in setting things up, and Gigabyte phone support walked me through it to completion.

Cons: I have not found anything at all to complain about.

Other Thoughts: This is a great option for someone who has a tablet to take on the road and works in one specific location otherwise, but it's still small and light enough to carry around if one chooses.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is a great system!

This review is from: GIGABYTE GB-BXi5-4570R 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 Black Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: First, I question some people in here who are "I.T. experts" and cannot get it to boot USB. The Brix uses secure boot with UEFI. Go into the BIOS and put it in legacy BIOS mode. Or even update the firmware then secure boot can be disabled. Trouble shooting a UEFI and BIOS problems ALWAYS starts with updating firmware: I.T. professional 101. This is a security feature, not a bug. Secure boot can also be bypassed from booting a DVD instead of USB key.

I built min as follows:
- 128 GB mSSD
- 8GB RAM (be sure to get 1.35 volt DDRL3 or it WILL NOT BOOT) it specifically quotes DDRL3, but most systems will just run toasty with higher voltages. Thie UEFI firmware in the Gigabyte checks RAM voltage on boot, and will freeze if not 1.35v
- 750 GB WD 5400 RPM HDD

Mine triple boots Debian (you will need a USB WiFi, or another half-mini PCI-e WiFi BlueTooth unless you want to patch recompile the Realtek kernel modules. This is a side effect of trying to run the latest and newest on Linux. Drivers are still in being developed. Windows works fine, as did Linux after patching and recompiling kernel modules.

This system is awesome. I stress tested the CPU for three hours at room temp of 73 F. Neither the cores or CPU thermal area rose above Intel's defined thresholds stock. To make it even cooler, I went to a Staples and bought a package of 8 rubber riser feet with sticky on the bottom, and put one on each corner of the case so it could rest higher. Rising another 1/3 inch from the surface it was resting on decreased temps dramatically. It pushed warm air out the bottom and the more circulation the better.

This is a great system. But if for those who don't low how to use Google, or the basics of cooling, system building might not be for them. There is more to building any computer than popping in a few SoDIMMS.

A+++ system!

Cons: Like building any system, it takes willingness to learn and training to work correctly. Its not a Dell or Apple computer you pay for and expect it work w/o experience or willingness to learn.

Other Thoughts: Might get another...

This review is from: GIGABYTE GB-BXi5-4570R 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 Black Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: The size makes this a great portable machine, or simply something that doesn't take up a lot of room on your desk, table, or entertainment system. The overall design is simple and logical.

Cons: Won't boot. I wasn't sure if this device would meet my needs, especially with worries about heat and fan noise, so I bought only this device at first to try to use with RAM and a Win7 drive I already had. When it wouldn't get past the boot menu, I ordered new RAM and tried with a different (blank) drive and bootable USB (to boot into Ghost). Still it won't get past the boot menu. It recognizes the RAM, the drive, the USB, has the appropriate system time and still nothing.

My Brix is just a brick.

I work in IT and we had been considering getting a batch of these for conference rooms, but if they won't even boot into Ghost, these don't sound like a good solution for us.

4 out of 5 eggsGood so far

This review is from: GIGABYTE GB-BXi5-4570R 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 Black Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: Small size, decent specs,

Cons: Software set-up complicated.

Other Thoughts: I got this to use as a living room machine to do Steam streaming from my gaming computer. The hardware set-up was quite easy, installed a 750 GB HDD and 8 GB of Ram. I tried to install steam os but couldn't get it to work, it would boot off the USB but couldn't make the disk bootable. There is a second "hard" method for doing steam os that I didn't try. I then tried Ubuntu 14.04 - that booted from the USB and installed. It then gave me kernel panics when I booted off the hard drive. I then found out by experimenting with advanced boot options that an older version of the Ubuntu kernel would work 3.13.0-24 worked while 3.13.0-30 was not good. I then managed to change the grub settings to make the 24 version the default, installed Steam, and was able to play Skyrim with a controller sitting on the couch for a couple of hours.
