Most Favorable Review

Best mini pc so far.

GIGABYTE GB-BXi5G-760 Intel HM87 Barebone
GIGABYTE GB-BXi5G-760 Intel HM87 Barebone

Pros: Powerful specs in a small form factor. Unlike past brix devices, comes with minihdmi to hdmi cable so you wont run into compatability issues using adapters. Does not boot with minidisplay port to vga or hdmi adapter but will work after initial installation.

Cons: Runs hot and loud but to be expected for a small enclosure, worrisome though. Wireless card strength is awful using b/g/n router: biggest grievance. Get an external wireless card or possibly an ac router.

Most Critical Review

Not working

GIGABYTE GB-BXi5-4570R Black Mini-PC Barebone
GIGABYTE GB-BXi5-4570R Black Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: form factor and specs sound awesome. simple setup if it would work. 5 screws used.(4 for case 1 for msata drive)

Cons: Couldn't get it to run after installing and uninstalling msata and 1.35v ram multiple times in an effort to get it to work. The power light and fan would turn on but multiple monitors through both hdmi and displayport adapter(s) would display no signal. USB mouse's light would also not turn on. Waiting to here back from Gigabyte before RMA.
