5 out of 5 eggsFast, easy and convenient

Pros: Very easy set-up, quiet and snappy unit. Runs Windows 8.1 efficiently. Form factor small enough to be used as a dedicated server.

Cons: The unit comes with one USB 2.0 port and one USB 3.0 port only - a powered external USB hub is in order.

Other Thoughts: The unit has been working flawlessly with Windows 8.1. Excellent unit to consider as a server, a second PC for the kids, or as a dedicated monitoring station.

4 out of 5 eggsNot too bad considering its a micro computer.

Pros: Not a bad purchase. I have installed linux mint on this. I can see this replacing my parents computer or even my own computer considering I do not play games or anything high end. I purchased this in hopes of seeing if it worked better than my android tv. This appears to have no lag when trying to use xbmc and firefox and even performing simple multitasking when upgrading the system. Pretty good and very responsive for what I really expected. When accessing xbmc/kodi it appears to run as responsive as my main computer which is running a AMD A6 - 5400K FM2 A6. I believe this is more responsive than my parents computer running an am3 dual core processor or pretty close.

Cons: The wifi is terrible on this unit. I like using radiotray in linux to listen to radio stations. But I cannot stream at all using the wifi. I have to connect to wifi using an usb adapter in order to have no issues. I believe that the card/wire is too small in order to use it adequately. If you are plugging the unit in then it is fine for you or if you are not expecting on streaming anything then it is fine for you. Also that the graphics drivers for linux is not always great and I have an overscan issue with my TV and its a driver issue with linux and the settings on an older hdmi tv does not have any options on making the resolution smaller, so I cannot view all of my menu items. Not a big deal but for new users who wanted to use it as a media computer it can be frustrating.

Other Thoughts: Overall I think its a great value. It is nice to have both HDMI and vga on this unit. If streaming media is not an issue for you this is a great computer for its price. Considering I paid 90 for this unit and last time I upgraded my parents computer I paid $150 (new motherboard, cpu, heatsink, and case). I would use this computer if I had to replace my parents computer. But I would have to teach them that size is not everything...

5 out of 5 eggsSmart Choice!

Pros: I purchased this in the hopes that it would be as good or better than the free dual core AMD I've been using for the past few years. After multiple OS installs I was able to get Windows 10 running with Drivers I found from ECS's website for Windows 10 upgraded Liva's. So far it has been running better than I expected. I'm running PLEX without any issues other than the slight lower range in WiFi reach the antenna can pick up.

I installed office, pdf tools, low memory games from the Microsoft store and a few other programs and still have plenty of room on the eMMC card. I am using a 1tb portable HD for all of my storage needs.

I would highly recommend this if you can install your own OS. This is a great deal if you just need something that has enough power to do daily tasks.

Cons: If it came preloaded with Windows 10 it would be that much easier for others to buy. Only one USB 3.0. (I FIX PURCHASED A USB 3.0 4 PORT DONGLE FOR THIS PROBLEM)

5 out of 5 eggsLIVA Mini

Pros: This was purchased as a proof of concept for a MMPC. I got it when it was on sale for $79. In the end, I installed windows 8.1 64 bit embedded and disabled all the non-essential services. It plays DVD movies ripped to .264 codec without a problem from an external USB2 hard drive. Blu Ray ripped movies have playback issues.

This unit would be perfect for the enterprise environment as a workstation terminal. Install windows enterprise on it and then use it to connect RDP in to a terminal services environment. We have separate units we have been testing for this. Even with all our corporate security components installed, it functions well for what it is. Unit doesn't seem to get hot at all.

Cons: It does work, but not without a lot of tweaking of the OS. I could not get any 32 bit OS to boot on this unit. The internal storage is not compatible with Windows 7. I originally installed windows 8.1 enterprise on it and it would randomly crash/freeze tight during playback. I could not come to any specific conclusion why.

Other Thoughts: Considering what I paid for this thing, what I can do with it, and minimal power requirements (15watt max), I give it 5 stars. This thing, since it runs on 5 volts, has car PC written all over it.

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.
