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...

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

GIGABYTE GB-BXi7-4770R

 

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...

GIGABYTE GB-BXi7-4770R

 

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

Dead power brick

 

It was easy to install the msata, 2.5"HDD and RAM. This thing is way smaller than expected

DEAD power brick on arrival, I had it tested with a volt meter. it would not power on

This is an incredible Box, it has the Best Intel GPU GT3e available on the market, can be used as a gaming platform, Video transcoding, Linux, or even WinServer. This is the Basis of the Steam Box, so it will make an incredible HTPC, Hackintosh or...

Not enough I/O ports (x4 USB3.0, DP, Nic and HDMI), upgradeability, more expensive than it should be
