Boxed Intel Compute Stick STCK1A32WFCR, Single Pack(Win 8.1)
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Great Little PC (After Patches) 05/29/2015

This review is from: Boxed Intel Compute Stick STCK1A32WFCR, Single Pack(Win 8.1)

Pros: (After Patches from Intel) Great little device for use while traveling or light HTPC use. All streaming apps work without a hitch, Plex is flawless and I was really surprised at how quick this little guys.

Cons: With any new tech you will run into issue, but I would have though Intel would have tested everything on this before shipping it out. The issues that I had and many others are have experienced should have not made it to a retail release. Requires a BIOS update, all new Driver pack and a patch for Intel's Windows image that is installed to fix App store issues. Taking one star off for this pain in the back side.

Other Thoughts: First thing you need to do once you pull this devices out of it's box is to go straight to Intel's website and download the new Bios, Driver pack and Windows Patch. Install them in that order and this little guy will work like a charm afterwards. Fixes weird slowdowns and pauses, WiFi and Bluetooth issues and the Windows Patch fixes the problem with the MS App store.

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works with out issue in a Synology DS1515+ NAS.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking ot upgrade any Synology NAS with an Intel BarTrail class CPU in it. This memory will work for you. Though I didn't see any performance increase in the NAS when I maxxed the memory out. It is nice to know I have it there just incase.

Pros: Cheap, Fast and works.

Cons: Not the fast mSATA SSD out there but for it is used for. It works great.

Other Thoughts: This SSD has been functioing with out issue in a Gigabyte Brix i3-4010 NUC PC for over a month. Performance is solid and makes the that little PC quite useful having Approx ~ 500GB of space in it.
