Pros: Looks great.
Cons: I had to take a dremel to my USB-C plug in order to get it to fit in the thing. I'm sure Apple Lightning cables work fine, but USB-C was a pain in the rear.
Other Thoughts: I got it for free with an Axon 7, so I really can't complain. It's great at work.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It has all the features I want except water proofedness.
- Very bright AMOLED screen
- Dual front speakers
- SD Card
- 64 GB internal
- 820 SOC
Cons: The camera is just OK.
Plays audio through bluetooth in my car, but no track info. Seems to be a common issue with the latest phones. Might be Google's fault?
Other Thoughts: I like the way the bell works for notifications because their backgrounds look great.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: For performance testing I wanted the slowest multi core Intel CPU that had the latest instruction sets and VT-x. The board uses very little power, produces very little heat, and is crazy slow. This makes finding performance issues with the software I'm working on very easy.
Cons: The biggest complaint I have is that it only has one Gigabit LAN port. The CPU only has 4 PCI-E lanes, but it only seems to be actually using 1 of them for the Realtek Gigabit LAN.
Running a lspci, I show that the 4 lanes are being used like this:
1 - Realtek PCI Express Gigabit
1 - PCI Express Port #1 - PCI Bridge
1 - PCI Express Port #4 - PCI Bridge
So, even if those bridges are required, seems like you should be able to have another gigabit lan.
I just use a USB-3 dongle
Other Thoughts: I would totally recommend this to anyone who needs slow hardware. There are very real applications for the slowest possible hardware and I hope Intel and ECS keeps releasing these all in one, very low TDP boards that use the most recent CPU architecture.READ FULL REVIEW
