Lenovo Desktop Computer M81 2nd Gen Intel Core i7 2600S (2.80 GHz) 4 GB 250 GB HDD Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - comes with a recovery partition
- comes with software to make a bootable USB from the recovery partition
- fans were clean (no dust)
- required drivers were part of the recovery

Cons: - hdd drive cage was not installed correctly, drive went flying and tore loose from the sata/power connector

Other Thoughts: I panicked because there was no HDD detected when I first powered it on. The hdd drive cage was not clipped in place correctly and the cage shifted during shipping and tore free from the sata/power connector. There was no damage to the drive but this could have turned out bad.

GIGABYTE GB-BXPi3-4010 (rev. 1.0) 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 4400 Integrated by CPU Mini-PC Barebone
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - its a neat little projector good for travel, good for the kids
- At the current price you are getting a $50 discount on the i3-4010u

Cons: June CPU Microcode update from Microsoft

Other Thoughts: The June CPU Microcode update from Microsoft kb3064209 will crash your windows installation.

I installed windows about 3 times. This is the very last update to run and it is an optional update. Very hard to debug because the system runs fine the entire time installing and running updates.

I was very much ready to just send this thing back to newegg as defective or RMA, Hope this review helps someone. I had to search high and dry and when I found another user with the same situation I knew it was not just me and not just the unit I was shipped.

search 'kb3064209 ' + 'i3-4010U'

ASRock Q2900-ITX Intel Pentium J2900 2.41 GHz Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great Board

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Its a Great Board... I see some other reviews here of people having problems with them. I have owned 3x of them for approx 6 months now.

The first one is my HTPC and I interact with it on a daily basis.

The other two are NAS boxes.

All 3 boards have been running 24/7 for 6 months with no issues.
