Pros: 5 buttons.
Has held up well to daily road-warrior use, except...
Cons: Left button has failed, admittedly after three years, but still.
Other Thoughts: I'm buying another one after three years because I like the design and I really need the 5 buttons now. I hope they've improved the switches they use - seems like they should last longer than three years.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Well made little box - nice and tidy inside - comes with a liquid cooler for the CPU, so I have yet another Intel-supplied CPU fan to decorate my office with. Plenty of USB ports front and back.
Cons: There is something fishy going on with the keyboard input. I've set this up as a dual-boot Linux/Win 8.1 box, and no matter which O/S is running, keyboard input frequently "buffers up", so to speak. It's almost like typing on an old mechanical TTY terminal (yes, I've done that) except it will sometimes sit there for 30 seconds after you've pressed the keys before anything shows up on the screen. I swapped my wireless keyboard for a hardwired mechanical one - same problem. The only thing left that could be causing this is the mobo.
Other Thoughts: I'd happily give this 5 eggs if it weren't for the keyboard input issues. While I can't be 100% sure it's the mobo, I've swapped out everything else and the problem persists. It's intermittent enough that the machine is still usable, but still happens several times an hour.READ FULL REVIEW
