Pros: Got this machine to connect to my 42" 1080p television for media consumption. Runs super smooth. Installed a cheap Crucial 256 GB V4 SATA2 SSD I had laying around. At first like many other reviewers I was disapointed to power on and get the blue light and no video. After furthur looking into it, I was using standard DDR3 ram and not DDR3L. Luckily my ultrabook had DDR3L so I popped that in to test and sure enough it fired right up. So i got the correct RAM for it and it works flawlessly. To the other people who have the power issue, check your RAM voltage and make sure its DDR3L and not standard DDR3. Since this is a machine that you bring your own RAM, im sure many users who left negative reviews just have incompatible RAM installed.
Cons: Stock BIOS was a little bit buggy, not horrible. Go to the support website and download + install the latest BIOS and it will be rock solid. Havent had any iasues since.
Other Thoughts: Perfect for HTPC use, web surfing, and office work.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought this after hearing about the good reviews that the HDMI handshakeds properly with TVs & AV Recievers. I had an AMD Card in my small form factor Dell Optiplex 9010 and the audio would constantly drop with that card. This card has worked perfectly since install without dropping audio once. I am using this card with a Pioneer VSX 1022-K AV Receiver. It is also 100% silent since it has no fan, which is very nice. Windows 7 detected it right away and installed the latest drivers for it. BlueRay works perfectly smooth on it, as well as some older games. I also have The Sims 3 installed on my HTPC, and even that runs nice and smooth (with low-medium settings). I was even able to max out the settings in the Sims 3 at 1080p res and it was still smooth about 90% of the time. Highly recommended for basic usage!
