5 out of 5 eggsThe Little Brix That Can

This review is from: GIGABYTE BRIX GB-BXi7-4770R 2 x 204Pin Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: Powerful, Small, Compact, Great Linux Support, Windows 10 Support

Cons: Can get warm, Only one NIC

Other Thoughts: Don't let the size mislead you. The unit has no problem driving my Asus PB279Q display at it's max 3840 x 2160 4k resolution through the miniDP port in addition to a secondary 21" monitor through the HDMI.

I added 16GB of GSkill DDR3-l 1866 memory, a Samsung 850 Pro 1TB SSD, a Samsung 850 1TB mSATA drive memory and setup was a breeze out of the box under Arch Linux with Gnome. 1080p and video and Netflix runs butter smooth and the system boots in seconds. I am also running a dual boot with Windows 10 PRO on the mSATA drive and everything works out of the box as well.

Although it the case can get warm at times, I find it hard to hear the fan under the AC fan and it's quieter than the tower PC this unit replaced.

Overall the GB-BXi7-4770R is a great option for anyone wanting a powerful PC for everyday tasks in a small form factor.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

This review is from: GIGABYTE BRIX GB-BXi7-4770R 2 x 204Pin Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: Very small formfactor and powerful as a big PC. Runs a little hot sometimes and fan gets noisy, but its understandable.

Cons: Loud fan sometimes

4 out of 5 eggsFan Question

This review is from: GIGABYTE BRIX GB-BXi7-4770R 2 x 204Pin Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: Powerful

Cons: Fan Noise

Other Thoughts: One guy on here said he placed the MB inside a new box with a better fan and it reduces the noise level significantly. Can anyone PM me a proper small case/housing with optimal cooling system in order to make this build?

Trying to make music with this and not digging fan noise.

4 out of 5 eggsA big computer in a little box

This review is from: GIGABYTE BRIX GB-BXi7-4770R 2 x 204Pin Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: Small Form Factor
Fast Computing Speed
Ease of configuration
Build options
Quality

Cons: Fan is a little noisy when running at peak.
Fan not large enough to keep system cool under heavy loads.
Heat buildup can corrupt data on MSata drives.
USB 3 ports drop/disconnect external USB 2 drives when using some USB keyboards and mice(USB powered hub needed for keyboard and mouse.)

Other Thoughts: System runs great after I repackaged the MB in a new box with a better fan. Runs so quiet now I sometimes wonder if it is still running or powered on. I will have to do this with my other 5 BRIX units too.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for Hackintosh

This review is from: GIGABYTE BRIX GB-BXi7-4770R 2 x 204Pin Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: Easy to configure, powerful cpu, and performance.

Cons: Heatsink fan noisy, bad audio ALC269 chip that nobody uses, could use a quieter fan. More USB ports.

Other Thoughts: Was easy to build a Hackintosh OSX Yosemite running on this, the only problem is the Audio is unsupported and requires some extra hacking to work and the HDMI audio is also difficult under OSX. Aside from these issues I have a much faster and higher performance Mac Mini clone. It is as fast as the fastest Core i7 iMac.

4 out of 5 eggsFast and small, but noisy.

This review is from: GIGABYTE BRIX GB-BXi7-4770R 2 x 204Pin Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: Fast. I'm using this machine as a Plex transcode box. Depending on the content the transcode speed has been up to 25 X, which is great.

Small. It's coffee mug size.

Cons: Loud. In normal usage, it's fine, but the second that you start to tax the CPU you hear the tiny fan spin up to VERY audible levels. This thing sits inside of my media cabinet, which may not have the best ventilation, but even when moved outside it's loud. Next time, make something three inches taller and include a better cooling system.

Other Thoughts: This is great if you need something small with a lot of CPU horsepower, but can also hide it in a basement somewhere...

5 out of 5 eggsBRIX GB-BXi7 4770R is GREAT

This review is from: GIGABYTE BRIX GB-BXi7-4770R 2 x 204Pin Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: Size
Form Factor
Speed
Ease of configuration
Build options
Quality
Fit-and-finish
Reliability
Functionality

Cons: One HDMI port

Other Thoughts: We have deployed 5 of these so far and they are our new corporate standard PC. They build quality is excellent, the performance is FANTASTIC and the ease of building and deploying them is a real plus. We have not had one moment's problem from any of the units other than an issue with one of the mini-display ports on one of the units that I'm pretty sure was the cheap mini-displayport to HDMI cable we used. I wish there were just two HDMI ports, but I understand there are limits to how many ports they can provide and some people like mini displayport. I can't say enough about the flexibility and ease of building these out. We have used the Core i5 model as well. We put 16GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD in them, burn our standard BRIX image (Win 8, Office 365, BRIX drivers) on them, and they are OFF TO THE RACES. With the VESA mount, we put them on the back of an ASUS 23.6" monitor and include a Logitech 720 wireless keyboard and mouse and our users get a GREAT PC, and we get a reasonable cost and ease of support. Problem with a PC - pop it off the back of the monitor, pop on the spare we keep, and boot up. Problem solved.

1 out of 5 eggsRMA quality control is terrible, too

This review is from: GIGABYTE BRIX GB-BXi7-4770R 2 x 204Pin Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: Nice form factor when it works.

Cons: I wrote earlier that my unit died after 8 months. I just got my RMAed unit back, and it is still dead. It will not POST and never even gets to the BIOS. It seems as though Gigabyte's techs either didn't fix it properly, or it has broken again in the time it took to ship it home. In either case, I love the form factor, but I cannot recommend buying this product.

1 out of 5 eggsNeat, but died after 8 months

This review is from: GIGABYTE BRIX GB-BXi7-4770R 2 x 204Pin Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: Nice compact form factor, peppy graphics, great Linux support, no problem driving two monitors.

Cons: It gets very hot and the fan is very loud when you perform any task that is somewhat demanding. The tip of my headphones or USB devices would sometime get hot while it was plugged in.

And of course, to top it off, it died after 8 months. It powered off overnight and now will not boot, with a flashing blue light.

Other Thoughts: I liked the form factor, and was even willing to look past the fan noise generally, but its sudden death at a young age makes me wonder if there are quality issues with the power supply or the thermal system.

2 out of 5 eggsWill not see drives

This review is from: GIGABYTE BRIX GB-BXi7-4770R 2 x 204Pin Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: These are awesome. I bought 2 of them, 1 is working perfectly, But the other one isn't

Cons: One of the units will not recognize any SATA drive in the sata port. I put a mSata drive in to see if it would help and it did, it recognized it for about an hour but now will not see that either. looks like a dud

Other Thoughts: Too bad. I would by 20 of these for my server farm if they worked.
