Great HTPC

 

Great value HTPC would recommend for anyone looking to build a media player. Windows 7 + HDhomerun tuner+ Antenna = Subscription free DVR.

Great little PC tucks neatly into my entertainment center. Streams and plays everything I can throw at it. 1 TB hard drive is adequate. If it didn't have a bright green light on it, I wouldn't know it was on because it is so quite

Haven't tried any gaming on it, but I didn't buy it for that. Also lacks an HDMI output, but still looks good hooked up to my tv with a monitor cable

Small power supply

Regardless of the limited upgradability this is still a great deal for a computer with a legit operating system. Attempted to build this thing up from scratch and the cost of the operating system blew my budget every time. If you want to build a...

This is one of the best HTPC you can buy for the money. Quiet low profile case fits on the TV stand with the flatscreen I bought to go with it. Has an open PCIe slot on the motherboard and a spot on the case to mount a low profile card. Hoping the...

The product specs are misleading. Only two memory slots and supports 8 megs memory instead of 16 with 4 slots. Weak power supply. Has PCIe slot, but not sure if power supply will handle the extra load of a low end dedicated video card. We'll see

Awesome

 

I use it in my office for everything including graphic design, and video editing- does the trick without a hitch! Only 3 weeks in- but been workn it to the bone daily- no problems as of yet :)

Fast, quiet, cheap

no real guide as to what kind of hardware expansion will fit- (expansion bays fit low profile cards) sound card not the best- but it's fine, and you can always upgrade (i think)

I'm happy

 

Mine runs flawlessly, is quite, looks new, takes up little space. 3 gigs of mem, 1T HDD, a decently fast processor with Win 7 - 64 at this price point, seemed I could not go wrong, and after only one day with it, seems to be the case, I received it...

Small form factor, very quite, easy setup, great bang for the buck

Keyboard and mouse feel cheap. Video speed won't satisfy real gamers, but I find it handles movies and 3d design rendering to be adequate

My first mini-tower

 

All-around nice unit for the price. I just had to have a Windows 7 machine after all these years and this is it

Default audio settings are sub-standard IMHO and most of the audio controls are burried in the GUI. Supplied keyboard is somewhat toyish, having half-height keys and almost no multi-media functionality

Are you kidding?

 

This is a screaming deal. I can't even buy the parts at this price let alone with Windows 7. The hard drive is a 7200rpm 1TB with 32 megs of cache and it has a 1Gb network adapter. After I got the first one in I ordered two more

Small form factor maybe but some would call that a plus. No HDMI or DVI ports

A decent little refrub

 

No regrets. Not a game machine, but a great great Office and Web machine for a kid.

Easy out of box setup. Use Revo Unistaller to dump the pre-installed junk and it is a decent little desktop for my 10 year old son

Pre-installed junk, a little loud

Follow-up...Added a GT430 low profile card, and we are gaming! L4D and L4D2 with graphic options on high, will try some of the COD series next.

you can upgrade it! Least video
