Pros: This HTPC has a great Form factor, is easy to work on, setup was quick with windows 8 on a usb. I had no driver issues and it only took about 30 minutes.

It comes with a small tool which is all you need to open it and work on it. I must have received a newer manual than other reviewers as I didn't find the manual confusing at all and it had clear pictures on how to get it open.

I put in a 60gb SSD I got through a Newegg deal, 4 gb of ram, and a Logitech wireless touch keyboard. With those it does everything I need. I got this to replace a combination of lackluster settop boxes i've been trying (AppleTV + Roku).

I mostly run Plex home theater and it runs great. I also watch Netflix and other streaming services. No issues streaming 1080p files over wireless. I plan on getting a media remote and then using the vesa mount.

Cons: Although all of these things are pointed out in the specs here are things you should be aware of before purchasing:

GPU lags under high processor utilization. Not the ideal system for GPU heavy tasks. Still much better than integrated Intel graphics though.

No Bluetooth.

Other Thoughts: I wish it had an integrated IR port like the MacMini but not a deal breaker.

I would have preferred an integrated power supply. The power brick is ok and I know why it is so often used but an internal power supply makes products seem much more polished.

Just an FYI for prospective buyers, it is really easy to strip the screws if you don't use the tiny, but included, screwdriver.

Can run Starcraft 2 on lowest settings and doesn't look terrible. Not really a pro or a con but I thought it was worth noting.
