5 out of 5 eggsExcelent for Media Center

Pros: I setup windows 8.1 with Media Center, I connected my USB TV device, works like a charm.
Then I setup KODI/XBMC and it works flawlessly. Excellent response.
Excellent WiFi, not once have I had problems with this WiFi adapter.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Would like to have this with 4GB RAM.
Be aware that this comes with 1 USB 3.0 and 1 USB 2.0 port, so, you will most likely need a USB hub. I got one and connected USB remote control, Keyboard, Mouse, USB TV adapter, External Seagate 5TB.
Now I have all my music, movies, photos in one GREAT Media Center.

4 out of 5 eggsMythbuntu ECS Liva

Pros: Small, noiseless, streams HD video. Easy to setup with mythbuntu.

I was worried about using this as a standalone frontend for my mythtv setup, however, any worries were largely unfounded.
- HD recordings/videos/live TV work very nicely.
- VAAPI works with minimal extra configuration
- HDMI audio works no problem.

Cons: - definitely had a problem with xfsettingsd, and found that it was easiest to deal with the ugly fonts on the desktop and just disable it. If I didn't disable xfsettingsd, I would lose the picture whenever the monitor shut off.
- HDMI audio works, but I gave up on trying to have mythtv control volume.
- Couldn't get LIRC to work easily, so just got a flirc dongle instead.
- I never tried to get wifi or bluetooth working so I don't know if they do or don't

Other Thoughts: I would definitely recommend as a stand alone frontend. Just remember that you may need to tack on an extra $25 to order a FLIRC dongle if you are planning on using a remote control.

3 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for!

Pros: Box is small and silent. Makes a great little Windows 8.1 "plug and forget" server.

Cons: As someone else mentioned, the antenna connectors suck. I destroyed mine after the third dis assembly, but I had planned to use a hard-wired network connection, so it did not matter to me. I ended up taking the bluetooth/wifi module out altogether.

The power switch would not work once the case was fully assembled. It's possible there should have been a "dimple" on the back of the plastic switch, but mine did not have one. I went into the BIOS and set it automatically power-up on power loss, so the switch is no longer an issue.

Other Thoughts: I would not mind the ability to plug in an external SD card. I have about 9GB left after installing my server application. We'll see how it does over the coming weeks/months.

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry to hear about the difficulties you had with the WiFi connections and the case power button. If you still have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us and we will look into providing a solution for your issues.

I or any of my team members here at technical support will be able to help you.

2 out of 5 eggsUpdate review

Pros: Low power, size, quiet, cost when on sale

Cons: Power issues on Micro USB connector. Yes, power consumption is low, but it's only working with the included wall wort. Can't get this working in car with 12V to 5V converters, or any other USB power. Guessing that USB connectors have too small wire and thus voltage drop. Would need surgical precision to attach alternate power leads to motherboard. Can't take advantage of low power as it is.

Other Thoughts: Could have been an "off-grid" star. Poor choice of Micro USB when it needs 3 amps to run. When it boots it fails with every 5V connection I've tried. While 3 amps is very low for a PC, it is very high for USB. So close yet so far. A 12V input would have been better, or a standard jack so that we're not locked into the USB problem.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for your feedback. It is appreciated. We need your feedback in order to improve the quality of our products and service. The limitation of power design is 12V/3A based on Micro USB connector. If you still have any questions, please contact us and we can look into your previous case.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this or any ECS products, please contact us. We are here to help.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: 1. Low price
2. Small size

Cons: No sound over HDMI connection with Ubuntu

Other Thoughts: I bought this box just to run Kodi. Installing Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS and Kodi went smoothly without a hitch. Kodi runs fine, streaming 1080p movies with no issues. The only problem is there's no sound over HDMI connection to my TV.

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry to here about the issues you are having with your HDMI audio. HDMI audio with Ubuntu has been verified and should be no issue with Ubuntu. If you continue to have issues, please do contact us. We would like to work with you in finding a solution.

3 out of 5 eggsVery nice with one caveat

Pros: Very small footprint, I was surprised at how small it was,
Seems relatively powerful enough to do most general computing activities,
low power consumption

Cons: I am running windows 10 on it and after getting all the drivers installed, all but the bluetooth was on the included disc that I transferred to a USB drive to load. I then used a hardwired connection to check windows for the bluetooth drivers which it found but the problem is that I connected a microsoft bluetooth keyboard and the connection is just spotty at best. I have to be close (10ft) to the computer and then it is still hit or miss. I have the bluetooth menu open and it shows that it is connected but still.

I have a feeling that it is unfortunately due to the antenna wire being bent when I was installing it. I can't confirm if that was the wireless or bluetooth one but my guess is the bluetooth.

I wish I could get a replacement antenna to test

Other Thoughts: with some minor tweaks this could be a really nice unit.

Manufacturer Response:

Were are sorry to hear about the issue you are having with the blue tooth connection. If you haven't already, please contact us, so we can look into your issue and help get you a replacement antenna if necessary.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Compact PC

Pros: Fully featured, low-power PC... Am using these for Amateur Radio communications as well as audio/video streaming at home. Have installed Windows 8.1 and Mint Linux with no issues. Silent operation with no fans.

ECS Customer Service is top notch... See note in cons...

Cons: The WiFi and Bluetooth antenna connectors are next to impossible to get connected to the board. They are very small and have to be aligned perfectly. Take your time and do not force them.

I did not take my own advice the first time, and broke one of the connectors. Thankfully ECS was more than willing to send me another antenna. (at no cost even though it was my fault).

Other Thoughts: The first two units have been in service for over a month without issue... Just ordered five more for other projects...

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Little PC Box

Pros: Small Low Power & Runs Everything A HTPC Movie Wise.
Surfs the web fine etc.

Cons: I can't get it to work with my hdmi switch. Only on my old bedroom tv. But no prob to the tv directly.
The wireless is crazy for me to install but got it. I use Wired only for HD.

Other Thoughts: At 79 dollars Its a steal. I installed Xubuntu 15.04 I like XFCE bcuz it's very light. It Runs XBMC/Kodi 1080p MKV & Mp4 all day long. Install Intel firmware under additional drivers helps.
I used A Rufus GPT install USB. I tried the regular one also & it seemed fine also. Made with unetbootin.

4 out of 5 eggsECS Liva

Pros: This thing is great to me I use it to emulate old games on my large screen tv and it looks great. Sound is good. I also use it for netflix and youtube sometimes. I use it with a bluetooth controller and a wireless mouse. Assembly is fast but you do have to be careful with the antennas. It boots up windows in about 15 seconds.

Cons: It stutters on full screen with youtube but not netflix using the windows netflix app.

The only real con is that mine randomly locks up. I can leave it on for days but if I get a windows update or have to reboot for some reason then it might lockup and plays a loud buzzing sound through the TV. It does feel warm when it does this. I have all the latest drivers so I don't know.

Other Thoughts: I would replace this without thinking twice if something happened. Maybe get the newer one. Also this will run off a battery pack if you ever had to for some reason.

I tried it out with a car battery jumper that you plug in the cigarette lighter that also had a power plug on it. You just have to make sure you use an adapter that supplies enough amperage. That means you need to use the adapter that comes with it and not a phone charger or something like that. Most of those put out about 1.5 amps and it will boot up but then restart itself once you start using it. At least that's been my experience.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat quiet little box

Pros: It's fanless, which is awesome. It can also be powered via a usb port, which is kind of interesting.

No additional hardware required--just slap an OS on.

Install of windows 8.1 was very easy--just use rufus to create a UEFI Computer boot disk using your 8.1 ISO, and make sure it is fat32.

I'm using a bluetooth keyboard and a low profile nano usb 64gb drive to store everything else on.

Runs websites, office, and general programs quite well. It's portable, and easy to take with you wherever you go, should you so feel like it.

Cons: The drivers on a DVD, so you have to either use copy everything to a USB drive (and you have to use the root of the drive, or the installer breaks).

If you are doing an install over usb, then you only have one usb slot for a keyboard or mouse, which is kind of annoying. You can use a usb hub, but I didn't have one handy. For windows installation, you have to use the keyboard, but the driver installation CD requires a mouse click, so you have to switch to a mouse for that.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it was a great deal at $99. There are plenty of uses for a little device like this.
