Impressive little box

GIGABYTE GB-BXBT-1900 (rev. 1.0) Black Mini / Booksize Barebone System
GIGABYTE GB-BXBT-1900 (rev. 1.0) Black Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: I use it as a htpc. I've had both Debian 8 and Windows 7 installed on this, both worked great. For less than 200 dollars I was able to get a little PC that is able to stream anything I throw at it. It also handles steam in home streaming great. No complaints.

Cons: Not a lot of USB ports, but you know that going into it. The wifi card lost connection occasionally when I first got it. I moved the router and that fixed it. The wifi card works, just has less range than I would have otherwise liked. Not removing an egg for this.

Overall Review: The drivers come on a CD, so I had to use another computer to transfer everything to a USB drive. Kind of annoying, but for the 100 dollars I spent on this while it was on sale, this thing is awesome.

Works perfectly

G.SKILL 8GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1333 (PC3L 10600) Laptop Memory Model F3-1333C9S-8GSL

Pros: I've had this RAM for a few months, and it works 100% as expected. when I purchased it, this was the cheapest 8GB module that was available. No failures / issues with it.

Cons: None

Exactly what it says it is

Patriot Blaze 2.5" 60GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PB60GS25SSDR

Pros: It works great in an HTPC. I don't store any large files on the system itself, so I just needed a small drive, but I wanted a fast boot time. Works exactly as it should.

Cons: Small storage area, but you know that going into it. Not an issue at all.

Overall Review: I wouldn't hesitate to buy more of these if I just wanted a small boot area for another PC. Extremely cheap and great.

Great Device

GWC HU2G40 USB 2.0 4-Port Hub with 2.5A Power Adapter, Bus-power/Self-power Modes
GWC HU2G40 USB 2.0 4-Port Hub with 2.5A Power Adapter, Bus-power/Self-power Modes

Pros: Works as expected One of the ports is on the side, allowing me to use one of my oversized USB devices. Devices haven't ever stopped working. Powered via power cable. Tiny

Cons: The cord is short, but I knew that prior (thanks to the reviews).

Overall Review: I have a USB extension cable on this to reach my tower and it still works great. I've had it for almost five months, GREAT product. I've told friends to get it when they need a hub.
