Good for Hackintosh

 

Was easy to build a Hackintosh OSX Yosemite running on this, the only problem is the Audio is unsupported and requires some extra hacking to work and the HDMI audio is also difficult under OSX. Aside from these issues I have a much faster and higher...

Easy to configure, powerful cpu, and performance

Heatsink fan noisy, bad audio ALC269 chip that nobody uses, could use a quieter fan. More USB ports

Fast and small, but noisy.

 

This is great if you need something small with a lot of CPU horsepower, but can also hide it in a basement somewhere...

Fast. I'm using this machine as a Plex transcode box. Depending on the content the transcode speed has been up to 25 X, which is great ; Small. It's coffee mug size

Loud. In normal usage, it's fine, but the second that you start to tax the CPU you hear the tiny fan spin up to VERY audible levels. This thing sits inside of my media cabinet, which may not have the best ventilation, but even when moved outside it's...

BRIX GB-BXi7 4770R is GREAT

 

We have deployed 5 of these so far and they are our new corporate standard PC. They build quality is excellent, the performance is FANTASTIC and the ease of building and deploying them is a real plus. We have not had one moment's problem from any of...

RMA quality control is terrible, too

 

Nice form factor when it works

I wrote earlier that my unit died after 8 months. I just got my RMAed unit back, and it is still dead. It will not POST and never even gets to the BIOS. It seems as though Gigabyte's techs either didn't fix it properly, or it has broken again in the...

Neat, but died after 8 months

 

I liked the form factor, and was even willing to look past the fan noise generally, but its sudden death at a young age makes me wonder if there are quality issues with the power supply or the thermal system.

Nice compact form factor, peppy graphics, great Linux support, no problem driving two monitors

It gets very hot and the fan is very loud when you perform any task that is somewhat demanding. The tip of my headphones or USB devices would sometime get hot while it was plugged in ; And of course, to top it off, it died after 8 months. It powered...

Will not see drives

 

Too bad. I would by 20 of these for my server farm if they worked.

These are awesome. I bought 2 of them, 1 is working perfectly, But the other one isn't

One of the units will not recognize any SATA drive in the sata port. I put a mSata drive in to see if it would help and it did, it recognized it for about an hour but now will not see that either. looks like a dud

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...
