Pros: - comes with a recovery partition
- comes with software to make a bootable USB from the recovery partition
- fans were clean (no dust)
- required drivers were part of the recovery
Cons: - hdd drive cage was not installed correctly, drive went flying and tore loose from the sata/power connector
Other Thoughts: I panicked because there was no HDD detected when I first powered it on. The hdd drive cage was not clipped in place correctly and the cage shifted during shipping and tore free from the sata/power connector. There was no damage to the drive but this could have turned out bad.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - its a neat little projector good for travel, good for the kids
- At the current price you are getting a $50 discount on the i3-4010u
Cons: June CPU Microcode update from Microsoft
Other Thoughts: The June CPU Microcode update from Microsoft kb3064209 will crash your windows installation.
I installed windows about 3 times. This is the very last update to run and it is an optional update. Very hard to debug because the system runs fine the entire time installing and running updates.
I was very much ready to just send this thing back to newegg as defective or RMA, Hope this review helps someone. I had to search high and dry and when I found another user with the same situation I knew it was not just me and not just the unit I was shipped.

Pros: Great Board
Other Thoughts: Its a Great Board... I see some other reviews here of people having problems with them. I have owned 3x of them for approx 6 months now.
The first one is my HTPC and I interact with it on a daily basis.
The other two are NAS boxes.
All 3 boards have been running 24/7 for 6 months with no issues.
