GIGABYTE GB-BXA8-5557 (rev. 1.0) AMD Bolton M3 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM AMD Radeon HD 8550G Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: A lot of machine for little money
Lot of power and capability packed into a tiny box
Makes a great home server
Great Plex server
Runs WHS 2011 (See below how to get USB 3 working)

Cons: * Little fans are louder than they need to be. I bet if I wanted I could swap them out for better ones but they don't bother me enough to find out
* Some say it runs hot (hasn't been a problem for me) and thermal efficiency can be improved with better application of thermal paste.

Other Thoughts: I put 16gb and an internal mSATA drive in it and paired it with an external 4gb usb 3,0 drive and it is a great Plex/WHS 2011 server. I use another for backups so this one is dedicated to media serving and file sharing and it performs flawlessly. In order to get the USB 3 drivers to install in WHS 2011 (Windows Server 2008) you need to manually edit the inf files and change the OS version restriction from Win 7 to Server 2008. You can find exact instructions using Google. If you want a small media server for Plex or alike, this is perfect and inexpensive.

Pros: Worked great for a year and a year ago, the price and speed were good, a year later. I'm on my 3rd one

Cons: The drive began to slow and eventually stopped booting after about 1 year. It got to the point where the drive couldn't even be accessed. So, after I jumped through a bunch a hoops and waited a month I got a replacement that was totally DOA. I am now waiting for my 3rd one to show up. It been 3 or 4 business days and it hasn't even shipped yet and no ETA on when it will. Samsung must be getting a lot of 1 year olds being returned lately.

Other Thoughts: I also purchased 2 HyperX for other machines over 2 years ago and they still haven't had a single problem.

Pros: Well speced out machine in like-new condition at a great price. Has Win 7 Pro and a Thinkpad type eraser joystick!

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: If you need a really capable laptop with Win 7 Pro and an i5, grab this.
