Watch the drive CD. Infected with Trojan

 

Small size, impressive speeds with Core I3-2100 and Intel SSD drive

Driver CD is infected with a Trojan. I used the Windows 7 USB download tool to install the ISO to a thumb drive to boot and install from it. Then went to copy the CD contents to the thumbdrive for drivers and it caught this with Kaspersky ;...

Awsume box

 

I bought this with an i3 and 8 gigs of ram for a box running XBMC. Playback of all content including 1080p is flawless. This thing is small, far smaller than I thought it would be. I plan on buying another two of these for low power appliances that...

Incredibly Small ; Quiet ; Solid construction

None so far

Great little HTPC

 

As other reviewers noted, it runs a little warm to the touch. However, the internal temperatures are completely within spec, so I'm not worried. I'm running this as a MythTV frontend+backend with an HD HomeRun Prime, with 4GB of RAM, 500GB 2.5" drive,...

Tiny, quiet little box with as much capability as a standard desktop PC. Lacks only PCIe and optical capabilities, but if you're considering this box, you already know about that

I love that it has USB 3.0 ports, but I wish there was also a USB 2 port on the back

Excellent

 

Dual Gig-e and dual USB3 in the size of a set top box - an embedded PC with more power than most desktops.

Amazingly small size ; Returns to the old Shuttle build quality - this thing is built like a tank ; Conventional heatsink rather than shuttle heatpipe but with an i3 and an SSD the fans are almost silent

Regular heatsink and fans - might be concerned about temperature if you had an i7 and a spinning drive
