Pros: Great price, very capable little machine. Fits in a small space.
Cons: Had to fiddle with drivers in Ubuntu. A lot. Also the USB3 slots still give USB2.0 speeds, but that's probably just because I got sick and tired of fiddling with the dang ol' drivers.
Other Thoughts: I've been using this little beauty to run a full server for the past 8 months or so. It does conversion on the fly for all my 720p videos for Plex with no problem, abut 60% usage. Runs at a consistent 60deg Celsius but it doesn't appear to affect the performance at all. Right now running on a 64GB SSD and it boots in under 10 seconds to Ubuntu 12.04 Server. I have 4GB of RAM in there which is frankly completely unnecessary as it never breaks 1GB. I have 4 different external hard drives plugged into it and it doesn't have a problem at all. GB LAN speeds at 40-60MBps.
