Pros: installed 16GB this Kingston memory in each of 3 brics and nucs. no issues of any sort. speed is great on this particular batch on this i7-4770R Bric. It in top 1% per local test.( pcpitstop ).
Other Thoughts: the speed scores the other 2 nucs not as good as on this i7-4770R Bric. Might be they i5's and this one top end i7-4770R. all are Kingston. we use a lot of Kingston memory with no issues including some ECC memory. On a few workstations where we have non ECC 32GB mem the speed of Kingston memory is disappointing. All the ECC 32GB and all the 16GB non ECC Kingston sets are fast. And yes a few non ECC 8GB sets are fast too.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Crucial M500 CT240M500SSD3 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: good score for non-raid ssd
paired with i7-4770R
no issues of any sort
speed beats other brands in my 3 new nucs & brics.
good price. I bought on price alone for each of my 3 msata purchases for a total of 3 brics and nucs.
Other Thoughts: the size of the msata is great! I would buy again.
why not the nucs & brics have raid 0 for more speed?
This review is from: GIGABYTE BRIX GB-BXi7-4770R 2 x 204Pin Intel Iris Pro graphics 5200 Mini-PC Barebone
Pros: well packaged , quick assembly and in less than 15 minutes you are up on 8.1 Pro wireless or wired your choice. I7-4770R Brix worked well killing my two i5 NUCs. It gave me similar scores to my mini itx Silverstone I7-4770K without an installed graphics card. If you are going for a NUC or Brix buy this top end model rather than an I5 one. it is definitely worth the extra bucks both Video 5200 and the faster CPU about the same as an i7-4770k..
Cons: probably my fault but there was a hum in the sound although the sound worked fine. But when no sound on the video I was watching I could not tolerate the hum. I substituted a usb sound device to plug into. this worked perfectly. I need to check this out in more detail. my one NUC that has a sound receptacle has no hum. if Gigabyte's fault which I doubt this is not a deal breaker.
Other Thoughts: I have a business use. My personal business computer an FX-8350 gets a passmark score of 3800 mildly OCed. This one no vid card , no OC gets 3500 but a fraction of the size. If size matters buy it. My Silverstone mini-itx i7-4770K not as small as this one by a long shot gets 3300. The I7-4770R appears to be about the same as an i7-4770K.READ FULL REVIEW
