When the dust settles and we have a final look at Sapphires Edge-HD mini PC I would have to say I am fairly impressed with the overall quality of this little box. It handles most video with the exception being Silverlight like a champ which makes it a...

Sapphire Edge HD Mini PC review

 

Sapphire's Edge HD Mini PC is as thin as a desktop PC gets

Great small form factor ; Almost silent operation ; Price ; Fairly decent media performance

Not great with games ; No OS preinstalled ; No keyboard or mouse supplied

Sapphire Edge HD Mini PC (nettop)

 

One of the smallest PCs we've ever seen makes for an ideal media centre.

Ultra compact size, Stylish Design, Full HD video playback

Intel Atom dual core CPU still slow, Price doesn't include Windows, ION netbook arguably makes more sense

Sapphire - EDGE-HD

 

At first sight, the EDGE-HD from Sapphire looks more like a miniature media-streaming device. Small, slim and coated in a black, rubberised casing, it's hard to believe this is in fact a fully-functional PC. Given its ...

If you're looking for an ultra-small PC, Sapphire's EDGE-HD will undoubtedly appeal. Its simple-yet-attractive design impresses, and the inclusion of an HDMI output makes it perfect for use as a home theatre PC. However, you're clearly paying a premium...

Sapphire Edge HD

 

Review Looking more like a router than a PC, Sapphire's Edge-HD makes the recently-reviewed Zino HD 410 from Dell look positively huge. Sapphire rather hesitantly states that it “believes” the Edge-HD to be the smallest PC in the world. Whether or not...

Super small and quiet, there’s plenty to like about Sapphire’s miniature Edge-HD, but I think it’s over priced. The entry-level Dell Zino HD 410 [2], for example, is just £50 more expensive and comes with a faster AMD II X2 V160 processor, built-in...
