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
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Size, Good power, Easy build, Dual hard drive capable, Good looks.

Cons: Only a single jack for headphone only.

Other Thoughts: I bought this after buying another Gigabyte Brix with a Pentium dual core and not too much expandability. While it worked, it did lag sometimes on 1080p video and was limited to 8GB total in one slot for the ram.
After seeing this one, I gave it a shot and boy I'm glad I did! The looks are great (I get lots of compliments) and the power is head and shoulders above the lower end Brix I used before. It has more than enough juice to run Windows 10 Pro effortlessly and all media I pump through it runs without lag or issue. I like the fact I can run an mSATA drive as well as a standard 2.5" drive at the same time giving me more than enough storage space, pretty amazing for the size.

Add to that up to 16GB's of 1600 ram (low powered variety, but still good) running in dual channel mode in two slots and you've got a pretty great package for media streaming or just plain running any normal programs. I even do some light gaming with no issues. This is a no brainer if your short on space and still want a full size PC experience. Highly recommended!

5 out of 5 eggs How to turn off the mouse LED after shutdown on Windows 10 08/21/2015

This review is from: CM Storm Devastator - LED Gaming Keyboard and Mouse Combo Bundle (Blue Edition)

Pros: This is a guide for Windows 10, any version.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you have Windows 10 and are hating the fact you can't shut off the LED' s on the mouse at shutdown on any LED lit up mouse, here is a quick guide to doing that. Do this in the order presented:

Go to: Notifications---All Settings---Devices---Mouse & Touchpad---Additional Mouse Options---Hardware---Properties---Change Settings---Power Management---Uncheck the box marked "Allow this device to wake the computer".

That's it, your done. After shutdown, your mouse will no longer stay lit up. This will work on any LED lit mouse. Your welcome :-)

GIGABYTE GB-BXBT-2807 1 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics Integrated by CPU Black Mini-PC Barebone
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very small size, Very low cost, More than enough power for HTPC use, Easy to set up.

Cons: None for the price.

Other Thoughts: This is a great choice if looking to hook it up to your TV or monitor. The small size and included VESA bracket are a great combo for this(Will need a larger adapter for TV's with larger than 100mm VESA mounts, no problems with a computer monitor). I've run every single HTPC OS out there on it with zero issues. Currently have Windows 8.1 Pro on it and it's running smooth as glass with few if any lags noticed. 1080p works without stutter on Netflix and other applications needing it. For you folks who aren't getting this result: did you upgrade your video drivers on Intel's website? The included ones are way out of date...just sayin' :-) Also, for now at least, Windows 10 Final runs a bit slow on this, could just be lack of driver support. For instance, Intel hasn't released any driver upgrades for this yet that work on 10. Just a head's up if intending to use that OS.

The memory needed for this MUST be on Gigabyte's list on their website or this WON'T work. This has been stated on here many times now, there's no excuse for giving it a one egg rating just because you can't read....truth. I used this 8GB one with zero issues:
CORSAIR ValueSelect 8GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1333 (PC3L 10600) Laptop Memory Model CMSO8GX3M1C1333C9

For the money, this is a great, cheap Intel NUC alternative(same chipset), it would also make a great kid's computer or low cost backup that can be stored in a drawer(seriously!) if ever needed. Good job, Gigabyte, this ones a winner!
