5 out of 5 eggsThis is a great system!

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...

2 out of 5 eggs

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

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.

2 out of 5 eggsPowerful little box, but died

Pros: Amount of CPU power in such a small box
Bright red color
Everything I needed is included, except for RAM and drive
Simple install
RMA process worked

Cons: Died after 2 weeks of use
Runs a little hot

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a development (coding) machine to run Xubuntu. Installed 8 GB of RAM and a 240 GB mSata. The install was incredibly simple. Xubuntu 14.04 installed without problem. The unit is deceptively heavy. That's not a con, it's just that I expected it to be lighter. It must have a real block of metal for the heat sink. The power brick is also fairly large, compared to the size of the unit.

I was up and running and quite happy in almost no time. Things were great for 2 weeks. Then the unit just died. No power light, no fan, nothing. I tested the power supply and it was working fine. Something fundamental in the box had gone bad. I followed the Gigabyte RMA process and they repaired the unit. I had to pay to ship the unit back, and it took about 3 weeks from when I sent it to Gigabyte until I got the repaired unit back in my hands. Because the unit died after two weeks is the sole reason why I knocked off 3 eggs.

I've had the repaired unit for about one week and all is working fine again. In the future I might consider the Intel NUCs, because this unit is more power that I really need, and I would expect Intel to have higher quality/reliability.

1 out of 5 eggsNot working

Pros: form factor and specs sound awesome. simple setup if it would work. 5 screws used.(4 for case 1 for msata drive)

Cons: Couldn't get it to run after installing and uninstalling msata and 1.35v ram multiple times in an effort to get it to work.

The power light and fan would turn on but multiple monitors through both hdmi and displayport adapter(s) would display no signal. USB mouse's light would also not turn on.
Waiting to here back from Gigabyte before RMA.

5 out of 5 eggsPowerful little machine

Pros: Fast, small, powerful and reasonably quiet. Easy to build and take apart, Low power. This can game pretty good. I am able to play games like BF4 and Titanfall on medium settings at 1280 x 800 resolution, which is not bad at all.

Cons: a little pricey? I just wish the graphics were even better.

Other Thoughts: When I can build a computer this size with graphics that will game at 1080P then I will be able to scrap a discrete graphics card and save money on my build. The next 2-3 years should be amazing as items like this become the norm and gaming prowess will be where it needs to be.

3 out of 5 eggsNot loud but it runs pretty hot

Pros: It is very powerful, compact and quiet (so far). I was worried when I placed the order because other reviewers have complained about fan noise. I have been installing programs and updates so far but a fair amount of multitasking has been going on during installation and there has not been any major fan noise. I will update this once I have tried out some games and other taxing operations.

Cons: The processor (and basically everything in the case) runs very hot. I have a 2.5" 1TB HDD which stays around 40 degrees but my Crucial M500 SSD is generally around 70 degrees, which is the maximum operating temperature according to their website. The processor idles anywhere from 65-70 degrees and stays close to 70 while performing the tasks mentioned above. I understand that it is hard to cool electronics in extremely small cases but this is pretty worrisome. I might have to return it if heat continues to be an issue. To me, there is no point in paying this much for a computer if it is going to have a shortened life because it is running around the upper temperature limit of the components. In my non-professional opinion, this issue needs to be addressed by Gigabyte considering it is approved as a Steam Machine and the temperatures are this high without doing any gaming.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome little HTPC

Pros: I'm using this as my HTPC connected to a projector, which might be a little overkill, but it does exactly what I want. Based on the sparse reviews, I was initially concerned about noise, but it really only sounds like a hair dryer when playing an intense game (have only tried Battlefield 3 on it so far); the rest of the time when it's idle/watching TV/recording TV it's basically silent.

Cons: The power brick is huge... sort of made it difficult for me to place this on a shelf next to my projector.

Other Thoughts: Agree with others that it's weird how they included drivers on a CD, meaning you'll need your own optical drive. I guess in most cases you'll need an optical drive to load the OS anyway...

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Little Box, false advertising.

Pros: Faster than i7 version due to turboboost more often
Low Heat
Great Performance for size
Low Power Usage
Fairly Silent for most use cases
Able to play most games at good FPS on mid to low settings

Cons: False Advertising. CPU is actually 2.8ghz with Turboboost to 3.2
GPU Slower than expected
Diablo 3 performance is def sub par on anything higher than low settings, but other games like Torchlight 2 perform fantastic

Other Thoughts: I sat this i5 version and the i7 version side by side for 2 weeks. This i5 version is hands down better for gaming. I think this is because of heat issues with the i7 version. The i7 version while faster for compiles and virtualization is great, its fans kickon full blast for nearly any task (even opening a browser). The i5 version pretty much has a near silent profile unless its really being pushed.
