ECS LIVA X 2GB/0GB Mini / Booksize Barebone System

5 out of 5 eggs The best mini PC to install 32bit Windows and Linux 11/08/2016

This review is from: ECS LIVA X 2GB/0GB Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: I am looking for 2GB RAM mini PC which can install 32bit OS. I finally found it.
The 2GB/32GB eMMC model is not good for 32bit OS.
The 2GB/0GB model is just for 32bit purpose, the mSATA hard drive is recognized under 32bit Windows 10 and 32bit Ubuntu 16.04LTS.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: You must choose legacy boot mode in BIOS to install 32bit Windows/Linux, The CPU is 64bit CPU. only 64bit UEFI is supported. So I think you can only choose UEFI mode to install 64bit OS.
Once OS booted up, I really don't care about legacy or UEFI.
2GB RAM is really good for 32bit OS.

RIV R55-B, Quad-core 1.2 Ghz Processor, 5.5

Pros: Big Screen
Clear and Crispy display
Good battery life
Fast processor
Dual SIM (one is MicroSIM, the other is full size SIM)

Cons: Wi-Fi is not 802.11ac, the specification is wrong, I only saw my router 2.4Ghz AP, no 5Ghz AP.
VLC cannot handle 1080p movie. 720p is OK
Only 4GB Internal storage (1.8GB available)

Other Thoughts: For $59.99. Cons I mentioned can be ignored. So I give 5 stars.
I put 32GB MicroSD inside, formatted as FAT32.

Rosewill RHB-420 Aluminum Mini USB 3.0 3-PORT Hub Plus 2.5

Pros: USB3.0 is working perfectly.
Good design idea.
Metal case looks good

Cons: SATA port does not work at all, I prepare 2 hard drives to test this little device, One is 500GB regular mechanical drive (NTFS formatted already) The other is 240 SSD (NFTS formatted already) Neither can be recognized in Windows OS. (Fatal hardware initialization error) They should be both recognized immediately, because I formatted them already. through USB3.0, both are working well.

Other Thoughts: Half buyers complains the same issue, so I want to take the 2nd chance to replace it.
