4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very niece small pkg, runs cool and quiet. runs 2 monitors, one of the only ones in that price range, that was my main need. Easy to set up, up and running in no time.

Cons: Will run only on Win 7 64 bit,not 32 bit some Drivers are only for Win 7 64 bit, had a Windows 7 32 bit but had to order one of Win 7 64 bit, nowhere in the specks from Newegg do they say that but its very clear on the Gigabyte website:
Support OS: WIN7 64bit
WIN8 32/64bit
WIN8.1 32/64bit

Other Thoughts: Newegg should make that clear.

1 out of 5 eggsProprietary Junk

Pros: Other than an aesthetically pleasing size (as it can be mounted on the back of a monitor), I found none.

Cons: Proprietary OS and hardware.

Apparently, there is a small number of "acceptable" SSD's that will work with this unit and a limited number of "acceptable" RAM models that will work with it. On top of that, you have to install Win7 or Win8.x (some buyers have apparently been able to install Linux, but I'm building this machine for my elderly Grandmother and want to make it as simple as possible.)

I think it's bull that a computer would be OS proprietary, requiring a specific OS to run. Neither the SSD or the RAM I purchased was on the "acceptable" list, which may have added to my difficulty. Either way, Win7 was "unable to locate" the drivers necessary to even BEGIN the process of installing Windows. After six hours of attempting to get the drivers to load, I'm giving up and RMA'ing the BRIX. I'll take the loss and find something else that isn't going to be as difficult to work with.

Other Thoughts: As I mentioned above, the BRIX is apparently OS proprietary. Since I'm putting this machine together for my elderly Grandmother, it'd be nice to have a system that would be simple and easy to use. She's used to Vista and I had intended to install Vista on the machine, so as to not make it any more difficult for her than it already is. But, no... You CAN install Vista, but none of the drivers are compatible with it - so that pretty much makes it useless.

I'm guessing that a number of the other people who bought this had purchased non "Gigabyte approved" RAM and SSD's, so I don't know what the problem is. All I know is that I've wasted, all in all, a full day of my time - and I've done complete builds (case, mobo, RAM, HDD, OS installation and program installation) in less. I've always liked Gigabyte's motherboards, but I can't say that I'm even remotely thrilled with their foray into the world of mini-PC's.

I won't be buying this, or any other Gigabyte product, again.

2 out of 5 eggsLinux Users Beware

Pros: - Very Small and Portable
- Sleek
- Cheap
- Low Power Consumption
- Easy to Setup
- Powerful Enough to Watch HD (720p) Video
- Runs Minecraft (Optifine) Fancy at about 20 FPS on Linux.

Cons: - Slow[er] CPU
- Bad Audio (may just be my unit)
- Weak WIFI Card
- Low Power to USB Devices
- If Using a Hard Drive the Bottom Gets Very Hot
- 1080p Video Glitches Most of the Time
- Had to Return Because it Was Too Buggy

Other Thoughts: I bought this unit to specifically run Linux on it considering that many sources stated that this product could probably run a Linux distribution very well, and because it kept the cost below $300.

Unfortunately for me however, I've experienced many problems with this unit while trying to run Fedora on it.

Hard Drive: SAMSUNG Spinpoint M9T ST2000LM003 2TB 5400 RPM 32M - OEM
Memory: G.SKILL 8GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1333 (PC3L
OS: Fedora 21, 64-bit (Cinnamon Desktop Environment)

For starters, my unit's audio chip constantly produced a static noise that sounded similar to a whistle or an intense wind that happened on both 2 different sets of headphones as well as a pair of speakers. I might have purchased a defective unit by chance, but I am also not sure if this problem was caused by Fedora or even created from the 2TB hard drive within the unit itself. Needless to say, the audio on the Brix was terrible regardless of what I did to fix it (including modifying PulseAudio among other things).

Another problem I experienced with running Fedora is that the Wi-Fi chip stops functioning every few minutes or so. I think this may be due to thermal throttling. I don't know much about this type of hardware so forgive me if I'm wrong, but my theory is that when the chip gets too hot, it stops working to avoid damaging itself. The reason I think this is so is because the hard drive sits right next to the internal Wi-Fi card, and many times the Brix itself is too hot to pick up because of the hard drive gets really toasty. I tried to resolve this by adding a USB wireless receiver, however, that didn't work out either.

I bought an external audio card to fix the audio problems, but that created even more problems when paired with my external Wi-Fi card. Whenever I was listening to any kind of audio with the external audio card, the audio would end up stuttering every minutes or so. After troubleshooting for a couple days, I noticed that whenever my audio stuttered, the system monitor showed that the USB wireless receiver was in heavy use. Now, I didn't mention this earlier within my review, but because the Brix unit itself only has 3 USB ports, I had to use a USB hub to use my led mouse, backlit keyboard, external audio card, and wireless card. I finally concluded that because the Brix reported to only use up around 10-12 watts under full load, it probably didn't have enough power to support each of the devices that I had plugged into it simultaneously. However, I do realize that this could also be Fedora-based so forgive me if I'm wrong; I didn't have enough time to test other operating systems on this machine.

In conclusion, I would like to warn anyone that wants to buy this product to pair with Linux. Again, as I said earlier, I could have bought a defective unit or just chosen a bad distribution to put on this machine, but in all honesty I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone with all of the trouble I have gone through.

2 out of 5 eggsUsing it as a Windows 10 Box

Pros: It was inexpensive

Cons: Struggles with web browsing...see other thoughts...

Other Thoughts: I am using this as my "Windows 10 technical preview" box. So yes I knew I was setting myself up for some "geek" challenges...and it didn't disappoint. How ever, I have been able to get it running so it will work for Windows 10. A few tidbit’s from my lessons learned...

- As others have said, make sure your SO-DIMM ram (laptop memory) is 1.35 volt it will NOT boot on 1.5 volt memory.
- It will handle 8GB of ram just fine I used G.Skill F3-1333C9S-8GSL.
- It works well with a 2.5 inch SATA SSD. I used a Samsung 840 EVO (getting RAPID mode to work was tricky, more on that below)
- Also as others have said for a Windows 7 install, go into BIOS and change to Windows 7. Default BIOS out of the box is set for Windows 8.
- Speaking of BIOS, I updated mine, there were some weird issues with the out of the box BIOS pertaining to how it reacts after a power failure. i.e. It locks up.
- I updated my BIOS to version F7 (the latest as of this review) that was the biggest pain of all. I really had to do some web digging on that one.
- Search for “how to flash/update bios on Gigabyte Brix” Look for the one written by Rasmus and follow it step by step. You will need a USB flash drive BTW.
- Use the Windows 8 drivers if you are installing Windows 10.

I used a Samsung 840 Evo I had as a spare from a previous upgrade. I wanted to use the EVO so I could enable Rapid mode, which is another reason I went with 8GB of ram vs 4GB. Windows 10 does not like rapid mode with Samsung Magician version 4.5. If you install Magician version 4.4 (or older I used ver 4.2) rapid mode will work.

I went through all this “pain” to try and make the Brix as fast as possible.

It’s ok for basic word and spreadsheet use. It struggles with web surfing. By struggles I mean... it does work... it loads web pages at a speed about the same as a standard spinning platter (old style) hard drive. If that’s what you’re use too and haven't made the jump to an SSD I doubt you will see much difference. I have gotten spoiled by the sheer speed of how fast an SSD loads things with a “decent” hardware. I did try 3 different browsers, Chrome, Fire Fox and IE. Ironically enough. perhaps due to it being Windows 10 it had it's best performance with IE..go figure..

It also gets hot, (no fan) particularly when web surfing 63C/145F. I used the Vesa mount to give if the best airflow. It gets even hotter when sitting on its rubber feet on a table.

Bottom line even with a BIOS update, lots of memory and a speedy SSD... It’s still a small Celeron dual core processor with out a lot of power. It’s ok but not great. Like all things in the electronic world...you get what you pay for, this was cheep and has performance to match it’s price.

5 out of 5 eggsNice, cheap little fanless PC

Pros: Fanless, so totally quiet while running. Supports 8GB of RAM, USB 3.0 and 2.5" HDD. Only 25W power consumption. Runs Windows 8.1 and various Linux distros without problems. Even ran 4 KVM VMs under CentOS for lab purposes with decent performance. Easy to open case, feels solidly built. HDMI and VGA output.

Cons: Only 1 USB 3.0 port, and only 3 ports total. Weird BIOS setting for Win7/Win8 mode. I had to set it to Win 8 mode to get Linux to boot. Feels just a little laggy at times on Win8. 2.4GHz Wifi.

Other Thoughts: Overall great value. I really love that it's fanless and so low-power, while still having decent performance. I actually managed to get it to run off a PoE splitter (12V 2A).

5 out of 5 eggsCheap Fanless PC

Pros: Great fanless unit that you can place just about anywhere. Put 8 gig of memory and SSD drive and it is a great Linux box.

The processor is not a barn burner, but a lower power daily user or ubuntu server.

Cons: The wifi card once in a while will drop out and you will have to reconnect.

Other Thoughts: If you mount it vertically make sure you look at the back of the enclosure to verify the direction of the mount so the heat will escape the enclosure correctly.

2 out of 5 eggsRuns too Hot

Pros: Size, cost, construction, HDMI out. I really like the concept of this unit but the heating up is an issue. I have 2 of these and they act the same so it's not isolated . AVOID the2807 and BUY the GB-BXCEH-2955. They seemed to have resolved the cooling issue with that one and it's smaller and faster. I put the 2807 in large cooling areas for pallets of milk where it 34 degrees. In that environment it stays cool for obvious reasons.

Cons: runs way to hot. This unit is sitting in the open in an air conditioned office 72-74 deg running a simple surveillance program rotating cameras and it gets hot to point of hanging up.

Other Thoughts: BUY the GB-BXCEH-2955 instead. Runs cooler and is faster.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent box for the right uses

Pros: Small, runs at a reasonable temperture, Completely powerful enough for basic usage and more. Inexpensive. No moving parts with an SSD. USB 3.0, still has a VGA port. Would probably be an excellent Linux machine! WiFi and BT chipset is Realtek.

Cons: BIOS is a bit annoying when installing Windows 7. Win7 does not install native UEFI without CSM on this box. Win8 probably works with a lot less drama. I did update it after installing, I don't know if this clears up install headaches.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for a client who needed an appliance machine for design and exporting files to a machine specific format. I ended up having to virtualize Windows XP. Even with the simple processor, it handles virtualization suprisingly well.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Installed win 8.1 pro on 1T WD black. 4Gb mem. Start very quick, 14 seconds. Normal use, web browsing, e-mail, chatting, etc. Very satisfied. Set on a laptop cooling pad, cpu temp < 36C, cooling pad off ~ 40C. No noise.

Cons: Web chatting needs both mic and speaker. On board only one can be plugged in. Eventually I purchased a usb audio adapter to be able to chat.

Other Thoughts: This is really a nice small unit, capable of doing what I want to do.
