4 out of 5 eggsMy Abusive Relationship

Pros: It's very small. I mean, the pictures and measurements indicate that it isn't very big, but I didn't really grasp how minuscule this thing is till it was physically sitting in the palm of my hand. And I don't have big hands.

The power of this device, in conjunction with its size, (and price since I got it on a ridiculous sale) is almost awe-inspiring. A desktop 4-core processor, 16gigs of 1600MHz DDR3 (provided by me) and an SSD (also provided by me) make this machine extraordinarily responsive. It will even play some games, though you have to pay attention to texture sizes due to the limited dedicated graphics memory. To get from power-button press to working in Win7Pro64 takes less than 20 seconds.

Cons: Okay, so I thought I new what I was getting into when I purchased this item. Like most folks, I read reviews before I pulled the trigger and noticed that, at the time of my purchase, roughly 18% of the reviews were 1 star. This means one (or a combination) of two things: 1) QC sucks and almost 1 out of 5 are DOA bricks – no pun intended, or 2) many people who have struggled with the device lacked the patience and/or skill to overcome the fickle hardware/software issues. And if I hadn't caught this bad boy on a serious sale, I wouldn't have bothered with it.

That said, it took me almost 20 hours to get Win7Pro64 up and running smoothly. And when I say 20 hours, I'm not glossing over sleep, pee breaks, or rage quits. No, I mean 20 actual hours. It was one of my least pleasant computer experiences (of which I have quite a few) ever. 20 hours. <shudder> I still have nightmares. Here are some highlights:

First it was a display problem: mini DP-DVI wouldn't show BIOS POST.
Bought an HDMI cable to get video from BIOS level.
Hardware wouldn't recognize my 3 year old SSD.
Researched CSM and figured out the problem.
After installing Win7 I thought I was fine.
The cake was a lie.
Installing the Intel video driver killed Win7 and my inner child.
It did this repeatedly. Over and over.
Switched back to mini DP-DVI adapter.
That helped, but I was stuck at standard HD (vice QHD) resolutions and no BIOS POST.
Win7 update process failed multiple times at various stages requiring reinstall.
Also, wake from sleep and hibernate were iffy (a pet peeve).
Somewhere in there was also intermittent wireless USB mouse lag.
The lag was apparently introduced by the video drivers. I have no idea why.
The lag became so bad as to render the mouse useless.
Wept. Some more.
In a moment of sobbing desperation, I realized my monitor had a display port.
Marveled at the non-fruit based monitor support of the display port format.
Bandaged multiple self-inflicted wounds.
Bought a display port cable.
Reinstalled Win7.
I can't remember what I did about those video drivers. My therapist called it “repression.”
Windows updated without spewing hate.
No mouse lag.
Sleep and hibernate worked.
Rejoiced but walked (well, hobbled really) away with a new appreciation for the ominous 18% 1 star rating.

Other Thoughts: So, would I recommend this product to others? Well... sorta. On the one hand, once you get it working properly it is a truly marvelous computing device. On the other hand, getting it to that state is like having a kidney removed. With a rusty spork. And no anesthesia. Through your nasal cavity. While being set on fire.

If you're contemplating a QHD monitor to use in conjunction with this device, do yourself a favor and get one with a display port.

Now that I have a disk image with OS and drivers fully installed and updated, I would totally buy another one if they went on sale again.

TL/DR? Give one of these to someone you hate.

5 out of 5 eggsPlex Server - So Far, So Good

Pros: This this is tiny! Seriously smaller than a standard ATX power supply.
Looks sharp and feels solid.
Powerful enough for my Plex server needs.
Sexy!

Cons: Noticed a bit of a loose connection on one of the USB ports.

Other Thoughts: Installing Win 7 Ultimate from USB was tricky and I had to look up BIOS settings before it would work, but whatevs. Wasn't a biggie, just be aware.
16GB of G.Skill (F3-1600C9D-16GRSL)
500GB Samsung mSATA (850 EVO)

Gives me a 6.9 on the experience index with graphics being the limiting factor.

All in all, I'm stoked about this little beast. It will be perfect perched on top of my Drobo 5n.

5 out of 5 eggsI love this little box

Pros: Small footprint, fast, quiet and powerful. Popped in the memory dimms, plugged in the cables, and it worked flawlessly. I bought two and installed one with Fedora 23 Linux and the other with Windows 10. Both work great.

Cons: This machine and many like it do not come with a microphone jack, which I need for some things. I had to buy a small, cheap USB-attached audio/mic combo (which also worked well).

Other Thoughts: It's fan is only loud if you give it a CPU-intensive task.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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!

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.
