Pros: For a fact: It is capable of booting from and run clean install on old 2.5 SATA HDD's - mine did like a champ after disabling EVERY option for MSI Fast boot, or fast boot Win 8 - even if you installing Win 8 or up. No need for mSata.
Performance - even on conventional old spinning HDD is phenomenal for a small thing like this - celeron now a days is way better performer than it used to be back in a days.
For a VIZIO owners - HDMI sound out is perfect with no distortion or "clicking" sound.
Over all I am very happy with the barebone - 4k video streams with no issues when using dual channel memory ( using 2 x 2gigs IS better then just one 4gig stick)
It can stream Steam with no problems at 1080p. Have not tried 4k yet
Cons: so far no cons.
Other Thoughts: Setup:
This ( Celeron) Barebone
2 X 2 gigs of Patriot ram stix - they were on sale
Old left over from my dead laptop 120Gb Hdd.

Pros: Enough power to hold up with my current setup.
Cons: RaidMax(NewEgg) do not honor their rebates. For some reason, after they accepted my rebate form, its no longer available to track, and 3 mo later there is no respond on any of my emails regarding this issue. Be careful if rebate is what you expecting -you might be disappointed.
Other Thoughts: Other than rebate issue, there is really no complains about device itself, egg off just because of disappointment on rebates (Why offer if you don't plan to fill it)READ FULL REVIEW
