Pros: in terms of "fuel economy" and heat, this processor is a fantastic value. stays relatively cool due to low W needs, and is good for an always-on computer; energy costs are low for the power youre getting. ive been very pleased with this cpu, and its above average performance.
Other Thoughts: its about 40% less powerful than CPUs that cost upwards of 3x as much, so not bleeding edge fast, but those processors also require 2x as much electricity, and probably demand superior cooling solutions as well.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: if it were to cost double what theyre selling for, i would still buy it. its that good. if youre using a slow, atom cpu computer with a slot for this, it will play 1080p videos when you add it. amazing. frees up cpu as well, so you can multi task while watching videos you should not even be able to watch on your crummy nettop or netbook...
Other Thoughts: awesome company for making this. i have a lot of respect for any company that solves new problems with humility like this. what a bargain for what this thing does!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: can handle hd video well on its own with onboard video. handles any video you throw at it if you add a broadcom crystal card. 1080p with this addon is no problem. takes upto 4gb memory (and all four is noticeably faster than just 2). very sleek, without sacrificing 5.25" bay (only about an inch thicker than the bay itself). pretty quiet, low power; i put an hdd rack in the external bay and leave this sucker downloading/uploading 24/7. plus, its powerful enough to use as my desktop for anything else. including movies, streaming to justin.tv, recording with hd pvr, etc.
Cons: no vents on top of the unit, no matter how you stand it up. not a big deal, since i dont think it really gets hot anyway. i just like the idea of air escaping naturally through top vents.
Other Thoughts: this is an awesome nettop if you max out the ram and throw in a broadcom for limitless hd video watching. smaller and way more powerful than the FOXCONN R10-S4 i had before, but is probably just as energy efficient.READ FULL REVIEW
