4 out of 5 eggsGood for XBMC

This review is from: Black ECS LIVA 32GB 2GB DDR3L RAM installed 32GB eMMC Storage

Pros: Does Gotham XBMC pretty well.
Fanless...0 noise...
Low powered.

Cons: Flash video performance sub par.
Video stutters.

Max 2GB of memory. For Windows 8.1 that's a bit paltry.

3 out of 5 eggsECS Liva 32GB Black

This review is from: Black ECS LIVA 32GB 2GB DDR3L RAM installed 32GB eMMC Storage

Pros: Small. Low Power usage. Cool to the touch.

Cons: Only 2 USB ports.
Whatever USB device is connected into the USB ports, the USB connector part gets pretty hot. I think because of this, the USB device constantly gets disconnected and reconnected. I can hear the sound when a USB is dropped and reconnected....during video streaming play.

Other Thoughts: I use this for xbmc and for streaming it works pretty good and pretty snappy compared to a fanless atom process with nvidia ion it replaced.
WiFi is okay. not a great connection but atleast it doesn't drop connections.

Videos stream decently but at times I get the video to freeze due to buffering.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsThe Little Engine That Could!

This review is from: Black ECS LIVA 32GB 2GB DDR3L RAM installed 32GB eMMC Storage

Pros: This is without a doubt my ideal Media Center PC! Tested with Windows 8.1 and Lubuntu, it could probably handle Ubuntu just fine but haven't tested that.

XBMC worked very well with both Windows 8.1 and Lubuntu, even with my Blu-Ray rips being played over the network from my main PC it didn't stutter a bit.

The disk it comes with does include some Ubuntu drivers though which is a plus for anyone who needs them.

Cons: Driver setup is a little clunky, all the drivers come on a disk which means you either need a USB disk drive or network your computers drive. I just used the Intel driver update utility to find the most up-to-date graphics drivers. Honestly can't think of many cons besides the driver setup.

Other Thoughts: I bought this on sale and it was a REALLY good buy! Even at the normal price this is a really neat little machine. I wouldn't mind having another hanging around just to play around with.

If you're into Netflix, I would recommend Windows 8.1 since the Windows 8 Netflix App works WAY better than any of the currently available Linux options.

1 out of 5 eggsBT&Wireless not work, Hard to install

This review is from: Black ECS LIVA 32GB 2GB DDR3L RAM installed 32GB eMMC Storage

Pros: Small

Cons: BT&Wireless not work, Hard to install

Manufacturer Response:

Currently, BT & wireless are not working with Linux due to the M.2 interface. We're still working with our vendor for this issue.

4 out of 5 eggsPrint Server

This review is from: Black ECS LIVA 32GB 2GB DDR3L RAM installed 32GB eMMC Storage

Pros: Installed Lubuntu 14.10 on it for use as a print server (CUPS). It works for my Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, and Chrome clients.

Cons: One more USB port would be nice. I had to use a USB hub while setting it up.

Other Thoughts: You could lash together several thousand of these for a funky super-computer.

4 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Black ECS LIVA 32GB 2GB DDR3L RAM installed 32GB eMMC Storage

Pros: very small size, working good with windows 8.1. I got what I want with that price. No any pressure to play 15GB FHD MKV move through USB 3.0 hard disk.

Cons: SSD is not big and fast enough. After installed windows 8.1 only 7GB left.

Other Thoughts: much better if with 64GB SSD.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat linux / ubuntu HTPC box

This review is from: Black ECS LIVA 32GB 2GB DDR3L RAM installed 32GB eMMC Storage

Pros: I replaced an old Atom/ION system (with a loud fan that never even cooled it properly) with this ECS Liva. I installed Lubuntu 14.10 64bit; absolutely no issues (love LXDE; no bloat). That comes with plain alsa (no pulse audio by default) and straight alsa works fine for HDMI output. I also put Kodi (xbmc) 14.0 RC2 on. Works great. Amazed at how tiny it is, and the case is well made as far as plastic goes.

(NOTE: i did NOT use the included wifi/blutooth card; I use ethernet and/or an old wireless-G usb stick I know works with linux for initial install)

Only tweak I did was to install the "i965-va-driver" package to get HW accel mpeg decode. Run "vainfo" to make sure you see the Intel baytrail driver is loaded.

I'm idling at 47C; playing standard def movies is 62C, and a 1080I ATSC mpeg2 stream is 68C (with cpu load of 50% using xbmc). Warm, but far enough away from the TJunction of 105 that I'm happy.

It's eerie starting a computer without any fan / noise for the first few times.

Cons: The power brick is pretty large, and doesn't have a generously long DC cable (5'). The brick has to plug in straight to an outlet, so get an extension cord if needed and you want to conceal this somewhere.

The power connection (micro usb?) socket feels weak, like there's only a short distance of 'clutch' with the cord jack (it hasn't fallen out on me though). It's also closer than necessary to the usb ports, although a hub or small usb devices can still fit fine.

Other Thoughts: Seems like a great device and the way of the future. Might be nice to have a 'premium' heat sink option. Not a 212 evo size thing, but something larger (something a lot taller could fit in this case).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat machine for HTPC

This review is from: Black ECS LIVA 32GB 2GB DDR3L RAM installed 32GB eMMC Storage

Pros: Small, quiet, and it works!

Cons: Wished wireless device supported Ubuntu, but knew this when I purchased it and was going to be hard wired anyway. This system should have a third USB port, but a USB hub fixes that, and also helps with reducing interference with wireless keyboards and headphones - which I did slightly experience being 15 feet away. (I'm nitpicking here)

Other Thoughts: This system is impressive. Installed Ubuntu 14.04 Desktop 64-bit and XBMC 13.2 - works great! Installation of Ubuntu was done by-the-book with no issues. Able to watch 1080p over NFS with no problem. Was not use to having a system powered on with no sound.

4 out of 5 eggsinstall tips

This review is from: Black ECS LIVA 32GB 2GB DDR3L RAM installed 32GB eMMC Storage

Pros: small, low power use, silent, acceptable performance, all-in-one devic

Cons: needs one more usb port
needs linux friendly wirless/bt card!!
should include win 8.1+bing for the price

Other Thoughts: -use windows 8.1 installer and a usb key **bigger than** four gigs..or the install copy may fail as mine did on 3 4gig usb drives...worked on a 8 gig drive..
-copy the driver disk to the install usb key and use it immediately after first boot..be sure all drivers are installed in system properties!
- change boot order in bios before installation so usb drive is first
-turn off secure boot in bios
-you will need a usb keyboard and usb hub for first boot
-external usb hd may not work properly from a non-powered hub, but will work directly from one of the ports
-usb keyboard lag occurs if kb and external drive a in the same non-powered hub
-turn off power saving for usb devices, wi-fi and BT or these will drop..

5 out of 5 eggsnice silent htpc with ubuntu

This review is from: Black ECS LIVA 32GB 2GB DDR3L RAM installed 32GB eMMC Storage

Pros: small, quiet, and has ethernet.

Cons: a couple more usb ports would be nice. maybe ESATA too?

Other Thoughts: installed ubuntu 14.10 easily, but no hardware graphics acecleration until i installed the oibaf ppa (google it, it was quick and easy).
Plays netflix in chrome, and streams BD rips over gige without stuttering.
Have not yet figured out raw audio out over hdmi yet - it stutters on some higher bitrate 7.1 sountracks while converting to 5.1 pcm.
