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...

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....
