Cons: There seems to be a problem with display connection for both HDMI and USB-C type. The reason I purchased this unit was 3 displays but they are not working properly. Sometimes one monitor would turn off by itself, sometimes all three of them. Then they would be back on after a few minutes and then it would happen again later. Sometimes they would work okay. It's all so random. I am not sure if this is my unit's problem or chromebox's problem. I am thinking of returning the unit for refund if this annoying problem persists.
Overall Review: I would not recommend this product.
Overall Review: It was very easy to set up and get running. It is a Chromebox, l sign in to your Google account and you're essentially done. And I have managed to transition everything I do to just this and a chromebook I use as my laptop.
Now, for the downside. The HDMI ports will randomly just not work. Change to the other one and exact same thing. I tried changing to new HDMI cables, same thing. It's not so much of an annoyance to make me give up on it. But, I have to wonder if it will last till the end of life for the OS. I haven't tried the USB C to display, yet. I have a graphics display drawing tablet that I will connect to do some drawing and editing. So,...
Another random oddity is that the PowerDirector app works as it should on my chromebook but not on this box. They are essentially the same specs, just different form factors.
Aside from the quirks, it's a solid little box. I should have gone with slightly better specs. But, this has and will continue to work for me till I can find one that is better specced at a fair price.
