Good little PC 1/12/2017 4:04:03 PM

Pros: Low power...kill-o-watt meter reads 7-10 watts.
Completely Silent.
Easily Runs linux (I have ubuntu installed)
Is fully capable to handle HD movie streaming, Music, web surfing, emailing...etc.

Cons: PC runs at 100% cpu usage for anything it does.
GMAIL is too heavy of a web application for it to run smoothly. (so far all other sites work fine.)
CAN'T USE SATA 2.5in drive!
PC overheats in summer in a horizontal position.

Overall Review: I decided to give this a try because it is fan less and low powered. This way I can leave the PC have it download/play music without me ever hearing a fan run. I thought that I would get a 2.5in SATA drive since it is cheaper than mSATA, but DO NOT DO THIS!! The case needs 1/8 in more space to fit the cable and the drive. I tried to gently force it into position, since it won't easily fit. I believe this may have damaged the cable, which has a special power connector on it. ("non standard cable") In the end I HAD to purchase a mSATA SSD, which has been working perfectly.

I am disappointed that gmail is so sluggish. Using Chrome web browser, I can see the keys lag a bit when typing. This doesn't happen for the desktop applications. My solution is to use thunderbird for email and install Jitsi for a messenger application.

Overall I would say the computer has met my expectations and I plan to use it as my primary computer. Games/programming etc will be left for my more powerful box.

update 1-12-2017:

I lowered my rating by one star because the pc had a tendency to overheat and shut down with indoor temps of 80F+ I saw a review someplace that mentioned having the pc in a vertical position dissipated heat better, so I gave it a try. For the past 5 months, it has been running a PostgreSQL database for my sensors in a docker container. I can't say for sure how it will run this coming summer when it gets hot again.

Remote control / Wifi 5G / Bluetooth not working under Ubuntu 11/4/2016 10:45:29 AM

Pros: hardware specs strong

Cons: Lacking necessary linux driver. At least right after installing ubuntu, the Remote control / Wifi 5G / Bluetooth didn't work. Video quality is low too may also due to lacking drivers.
But attached CD and AsRock web support had only Windows drivers.

Anyone can help with linux drivers?

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Valued ASRock Customer,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
Unfortunately, unit does not provide Linux based OS drivers, it depends on chipset vendors.
Please check if the using Linux OS has built-in driver for the mainboard or 3rd party website.
However, we do the test with Ubuntu Kylin (16.04) for experiment purpose, and it worked wifi, Remote, LAN function.
So it depends on OS whether built-in those drivers.

If you have any technical support inquiry, please contact us at http://www.ASRock.com/Support/tsd.asp
We will assist you shortly.

Thank you

sata cable not working - even without mounting ssd into the lid 11/1/2016 10:01:04 PM

Pros: full function

Cons: cable issue

Overall Review: The sata cable connector had wrong angle so cannot mount to lid socket.

However, even I directly plug to the ssd socket, the bios still cannot detect the ssd. So it's obvious a faulty cable, on top of the wrong angle.

Also, can anyone confirm if it supports a single SSD installation, without using the msata disk?

Thanks!

TOTAL PITA! 3/5/2016 3:39:13 AM

Pros: Small, 3 displays

Cons: Would not recognize more that 1- 2 gb sodimm at a time, would not recognize 1 -4 GB sodimm at all, either slot. (DDR3 1600, 2x2 and 1x4) screw holder to hold down msata snapped off first time I tried to install the msata card, piece of junk, card held in place by a toothpick now. Also, power button is too small for the hole and sticks if not removed completely. You can use the remote or push the inside button down with an object of your finding....

Overall Review: Windows 7 (Have to create special usb3 install media) Windows 8, Windows 10 and Linux Mint all run slower than snot on this thing. No performance at all. Regret I ever even saw this thing after the money and effort spent on it.

Nice fanless design 1/23/2016 2:03:36 PM

Pros: Low power
Fanless
Plays 1080p videos flawlessly
Great for a home theater box if paired with an mSata drive

Cons: Don't even consider installing a 2.5" SSD. The manufacturer advises against it, it will block airflow and make it run hotter, and if you are not careful you can pinch the cable (when closing the lid) and short out the motherboard.
Runs hotter in horizontal position. Must keep it vertical for best cooling, but the box itself doesn't have any feet or pads to make that easier.

Overall Review: Wireless seems to work but I have no idea how reliable it is. I just don't bother with wireless when I have a wired connection that works well.
If you are wondering about Linux, Mint 17.3 works well. Be sure to do a fresh install of 17.3 though. If you start with 17.1 and upgrade to 17.3 you won't get some of the LTS enhancements to the video driver that are essential for good performance.
Make sure the cpu is in performance mode and not powersave mode.
mplayer has some hiccups but mpv works great, even without the recommended Intel video driver.
Haven't tried the IR yet.

Taking a couple of eggs off for ASRock's terrible support. I bought this with a $30 mail-in rebate, but the rebate form was not accessible at ASRock's web site. My emails to customer support were ignored. Luckily Newegg stepped in and covered the rebate cost. This is why I shop at Newegg, and also why I am less likely to buy any more ASRock products.
Funny how when another reviewer complained about the same thing, ASRock answered asking him to contact them by email. From my experience I woudn't put much hope on going that way.

One of the best fanless booksize PCs around! 1/4/2016 11:06:38 PM

Pros: When paired with a 8GB Gskill dual channel kit (F3-1600C11D-8GRSL) this makes for a little PC that can actually run some MOBAs on low settings (LOL, even HotS around 30fps). It even can semi play Guild Wars 2 on lowest settings at about 20fps in open areas. Certainly not gaming grade, but gives you an idea of the performance of the N3000. This makes for an excellent Steam box to stream games to from your gaming PC elsewhere on the network.
-Very low power consumption.
-Fanless design and when coupled with an SSD makes for a completely silent PC.
-Included remote control.
-Decent WiFi reception. (minor hiccups at 33ft through two rooms from an Asus RT-AC87U)
-Nearly always runs at its turbo frequency of just over 2Ghz
-Very snappy sleep mode and resume function.

Cons: -It can run pretty hot in a horizontal position. The manual recommends vertical installation, and so do I.
-Even with an SSD, installation of Windows 10 is pretty slow, as are large updates like the 1511 update.
-Credit card size remote control doesn't use AA or even AAA batteries (to be expected though for its small size)

Overall Review: I had to deduct two stars because ASRock would not respond to email support or fix their rebate website and ended up making me lose out on my rebate of $30. I would hate to have to deal with them for any tech support related issue.

Updated review 12/16/2015 12:45:51 PM

Pros: Small, user configurable, quiet

Cons: Will only accept 1.35v memory modules

Overall Review: The ram I initially ordered was not 1.35 volt and would run for a little while then blue screen. Once I figured that out and replaced the ram everything has worked fine.

Pros: Neat little computer in a small package. Perfect little web surfer (after addressed issues). Have a few roms that work flawlessly. Great computer to dip your toe into building computers or for the savy that want to try something different. Great driver support for Windows if you use it.

Cons: Network Card is slow at best and plain awful even on the one that worked. Managed to get it to surf decently with the lightest browser I could find. This was from less than 10 feet through a non concrete wall where my smartphone was having no issues leap frogging surfing sessions. If you web search this is a common issue, with a handful of dedicated souls looking to solve the issue without having to RMA or spend addition funds on just replacing the wifi card. My issue was compounded by the fact that I would connect to an Ethernet cable and the manager would go berserk prompting me that my "wireless connection" connected disconnected as I was surfing through a hardline. Surfing was fine though a cable, just annoying to see prompts and get no internet through just wifi.

As luck would have it I was parting out my old laptop from 5 years ago and slapped that card into the computer. Network Manager still shows a weak connection, but at was able to stream movies and load script heavy websites like the packaged card was standing still....of which in this case it was.

Bit disappointed that such a great product can be cut down by something trivial. If money is a factor there is help. I spent a day trying everything before replacing the card your mileage may vary.

Another thing to note, this processor is pretty easy to bog down if you are a multiple tab surfer with moderate to heavy scripts loading. Not a deal breaker. Performance picks up when you set sport mode, but she's no spring chicken.

Overall Review: I ordered two of these for Christmas gifts. Both are to replace aging computers from almost a decade ago. Installed 8GB of ram and laptop HDD's I had lying around the house while waiting for mSATA SSD's to come in. Loaded a few desktop resource heavy linux desktops and crushed the processor. switched to the lightweight version of some more popular distros and it works fine. One has to compute small with these computers as they are true to form. Look forward to the experience when the SSD's come in.
