This product is Great! I use it for one of my work stations and it works like a champ. Did upgrade the ram 10/11/2016 9:53:07 AM

Pros: - Small
- Quiet
- Powerful enough to get my internet research done (zillow, gmaps, propertyshark)
- quickly starts up

Cons: - comes with 2 gigs of Ram (upgrading is inexpensive)
- small amount of storage, but easily upgradable now with all of the 3.0 USB options

Overall Review: -Great for people who only really need to edit word/excel docs, or browse the internet for research.

Best HTPC / Linux model I have found on the market 6/3/2016 10:44:30 AM

Pros: TONS

Cons: Hardly any. I don't try and use wifi or add gadgets or do anything this machine is not geared and ready to do

Overall Review: I run Ubuntu 16.4 64Bit with Cinnamon desktop on one of these machines, and headless KodiBuntu on the other. The are ROCK SOLID machines that have ZERO heat problems, and are fairly quick for what they do. My Kodi version is wired via house eth to my router, and video playback of 1080 with file sizes as high as 30Gb are no problem. I run Plex server on the same machine as Kodibuntu. I run Kodi with my phone as the remote. Zero issues. The machine I run as a desktop, I run with cordless keyboard and mouse, and I've got 4 drives hooked up to it's 4 USB 3 ports. I have an 8 ports USB3 extender hooked up as well.

The machine runs;

Dropbox, Google drive, Geary, Evolution, Chromium, Firefox, Gimp, Audacity, Ink, Shotwell, Clementine, and a crapton of other Linux software like LibreOffice, etc. All free. All compatible and comparable to the OS X or Windows versions.

Not for everyone? Sure. If you don't know how to download a linux distro to a USB stick with Unetbootin - and you don't know how to boot from a usb stick in Bios, then DON'T get this. Windows on this machine is a pig. Erase it immediately. Linux Mint 17 or Ubuntu with Cinnamon are the way to go for people that want a familiar Desktop that can do familiar things using free software and a little bit of research / self education. THIS machine kicks serious rear end at a ridiculously good cost when considering the i/o, speeds and formats, as well as stability ( cooling, silent fans ) and connection options. Most of the other mini PC's in this category have all kinds of issues, or are over priced for what they offer. 4 USB3 connections and DVI / HDMI / Optical are worth it alone, let alone the fact that I upped the RAM to 8gbs without any heat or stability issues.

Excellent Machine for the money 2/14/2016 3:07:14 PM

Pros: Tiny. It's the size of ... well.. it's tiny... Weighs nothing, makes almost zero noise, uses almost zero power, and has all the features I could want in an work box.

I deleted Windows and install Ubuntu and it rips. Graphics speed is excellent for a work desktop, and there's enough room to stack another SSD inside it, which I did.

Cons: RIP. Unit died on Feb 14, 2016, just 13 months after I bought it.

Overall Review: Contrary to what some, *cough*, reviewer(s) might infer, it does come with an SSD, but not the kind you'd buy in the store. It's an integrated card that you likely cannot use in another PC. You *can* add another SSD, as I mentioned above, if you need more storage.

Great little PC, Great deal 9/19/2015 7:54:04 PM

kodi works well 7/1/2015 2:28:09 PM

Pros: Quick enough for non-gamers. Quiet.

Cons: no unexpected issues

Overall Review: Installed ancient 2.5" SATA drive. Changed BIOS to boot from USB. Installed Ubuntu (actually Lubuntu/LXLE) from flash drive . Changed BIOS to boot from 2.5" drive. (No changes made to SSD). Installed Kodi from PPA. Tinkered with pulseaudio. Kodi works great with 2GB and slow drive, clearly superior to Android TV box. Price has varied - be careful.

Great for HTPC use with Kodi 3/25/2015 10:58:57 AM

Pros: I bought this to use as a Kodi media center PC, as an upgrade from a raspberry pi. I had originally thought to install Openelec when I ordered it, but the idea of also being able to use Netflix, Prime Video, Yahoo Screen, etc enticed me to try Windows 8. This was especially appealing as Windows 8.1 comes preinstalled on the integrated SSD. I immediately installed Windows updates (more on that below), the graphics driver update available on the Intel site (it isn’t listed on the Zotac site) and a BIOS update from the Zotac site. All the other drivers where were already up to date. I was a little nervous about the Kodi performance on Windows but I have to say those worries were completely unwarranted. Kodi menus were responsive to the remote with no lagging or sluggishness. Bitstreaming audio to my Denon receiver via HDMI works out of the box both via Kodi and other windows apps. Netflix and Prime video both work excellently with no buffering or skipping/tearing of video – I did have to install the Silverlight plug-in for those services. Yahoo screen, using Adobe Flash, was a little less good. It generally worked, but there was some skipping and tearing in the video. I assume that’s due to Flash being not a very great technology for high def video. I have yet to try Youtube videos. All my online videos were viewed using Firefox. I’m thinking of trying screens in Chrome to see if it performs any better.
Here are few tips on Windows Kodi usage I have discovered:
• I installed a utility found on the Kodi forum called Launcher4Kodi which once installed loads Kodi automatically at bootup and prevents other applications or windows alerts, etc from stealing focus. If you intend to use Kodi on windows this utility is a must.
• I use Teamviewer to remote in to do administrative tasks, but Teamviewer leaves a popup when you disconnect. There is an autoit script which you can find by googling “autoit teamviewer popup” which will close that popup automatically. Highly recommended.
• To control Kodi I bought a Flirc and used old remote I had hanging around, it works really well. I also bought a Logitech K400r wireless keyboard/mouse pad combined, which I use to control windows outside of Kodi. The combination handles all my needs well.

Cons: The only real con was out of the box I had to install a lot of Windows updates, which took longer than I thought it should, the progress bar sat at 0% and 0 kb downloaded for at least an hour before it started downloading and installing about 100 updates. This is the one task I’ve done on this computer which really showed how slow the processor is. On my i5 and i7 computers windows updates are installed rather quickly, but it took a while for this Celeron to chew threw them. Not really a big issue though, because for the primary duties of this computer the Celeron is perfect. If it was faster it would consume more power and be costlier.

Overall Review: Another sort of con is the constant price fluctuations. I picked it up for $180, but as of the review its $250. At $250 I would maybe start to consider a NUC. I know this thing has been as low as $140 so, I guess what I’m saying is, shop with care.

Good general purpose machine 3/23/2015 7:19:14 AM

Pros: Small, quiet, inexpensive, quicker than I expected, plenty of USB ports.

Cons: No usb 3.0 on front. Case shape makes getting small dongles out of rear usb ports is a pain.

Overall Review: Very good value for money. Not a gaming system, but the SSD (my first) made it seem as quick as my i5-powered laptop. Ubuntu 14.04 works perfectly. The cons are relatively minor, all things considered.
