Once again no good


I will never buy Gigabyte products again, and in case you are wondering I have 23 years experience working on Computers and 14 of those years as a It manager in 75-100 workstation 5-10 server environment, Not saying I know everything, but I have a very...

there is nothing good about Gigabyte products

I looked up on Gigabytes site and ordered supported memory and msata and still get Low memory error if left on over night they say it is a windows 8.1 problem but I can use the exact same mstata and memory on a intel nuc same OS same programs and no...

Great Potential, Poor Quality Control


There's a lot to like about this unit - it's amazing how much computer they've crammed into such a tiny chassis! It looks great and is packed with features. The power idle is impressively low and it's very quiet if it's not doing anything that stresses...

Unfortunately Gigabyte has a harder time keeping quality high on a whole system vs. a motherboard. Since day one I've had issues with a Segate external hard drive randomly being disconnected from the system. I thought it was the hard drive, so I spent...

Pitiful support on a common critical issue


Very fast and compact. Very sleek. Very easy to setup

I was brave and ordered two units. One has worked flawlessly for 5 months. The second started experiencing the problem of not recognizing the SATA SSD. For a while I could get the unit to boot if I spent half an hour adjusting the SATA related BIOS...

Defective MB or CPU fan out of box


This Gigabyte technology is apparently not ready for prime time judging by the number of issues I am now seeing. It is a great idea, but Gigabyte QC leaves much to be desired. I am quite disappointed to have to return it and pay the shipping costs to...

form factor

The unit is very slow to initialize HDMI signal & boots quite slowly for that reason. The HDW monitor is not working or CPU fan is bad. If the utility is set to "on" in bios, the unit produces a fan error & will not boot unless the monitor is turned...

Unit was defective out of the box


compact form factor

The unit is very slow to initialize HDMI signal & boots quite slowly for that reason. The HDW monitor is not working or CPU fan is bad. If the utility is set to "on" in bios, the unit produces a fan error & will not boot unless the monitor is turned...

Fastest computer I've seen


Fastest PC I've seen so far. Boots from power button press to Kubuntu desktop in less than 15 seconds. Booting from sleep is less than 5 seconds. I'm buying at least one more of these. To make this thing perfect this is what it needs. A 6 or 8 core...

Very fast, Very small, Very low power consumption

No triple monitor or quad monitor support ; Optical S/PDIF in front. Would prefer to have it in the rear ; Would also like a nice Nvidia GPU but I'm not going to do much gaming on it anyway ; Fan noise is loud but not distracting. Normal use at a...

Another Defective Unit--Same Problem as Other Reviews


Gigabyte online support is a waste of time. Website will not indicate a valid warranty on the unit when entering the serial number as described. Support is as slow as everyone else who has posted about a defective unit has described....

It was mostly excellent while it worked--purchased in early February. Great processor and graphics in a wonderful compact package. Good build quality on the outside. Currently, nobody offers anything comparable

Like others have mentioned, it gets noisy (fan) even under relatively minor loads. The BIOS update process is arcane--like something from 1990 but without a 3.5" floppy disk drive. The unit just spontaneously quit recognizing the HDDs--both interfaces....

Solid barebones PC


I've had this little unit for about a month now, running it as a compact unit for computer vision experiments. For this the CPU and GPU combo is great. For those interested, the on-chip GPU runs OpenCV and C++ AMP very well. I also have a Point Grey...

Simple setup ; Great CPU and GPU ; Decent BIOS ; 4 USB3 ports ; Compact

USB3 ports aren't full speed ; Fan gets a little loud

This is a 70% perfect product. If you can take those cons, this is a good machine. Otherwise. please wait for Gigabyte fixes those issues. Manufactures are making so much $$ on these kind of mini PC (Yes, I can calculate the BOM cost) why not make it...

Small, capable, energy saving. The ourside case is made by glossy plastic, surprisingly not finger print collector

1, Loud! The fan went crazy when installing Microsoft office... It went even louder when install WOW... It reached it's MAX while playing WOW ; 2, No overclock menu in BIOS. Even Intel NUC has one ; 3, Either HDMI and mini display port can't support...

70% perfect product. Need many improvements. As a manufacture, Gigabyte should consider more especially they are making so much on this kind of barebone.

Small, capable of doing lots of things. energy saving compare to yhe regular desktop

So loud! even louder than my desktop. And the included drivers are in DVD... come on, you are selling a machine without optical drive! Why not supply them with an USB drive? Also, theres no overclicking capability like Intel Haswell based NUC
