Died after little use

 

After running on windows 7 very quickly and reliably, system stopped booting past windows screen. Formatted and installed windows 10. Supplied drivers from Gigabyte website instantly kill the video output. System runs too slow on basic win 10 install...

Speed demon, great construction

Incompatible with Windows 10, weak driver support, would be better if HDMI+VGA for troubleshooting, rather than mdp.

Very Expensive Paperweight

 

I used the same installation media on my work laptop and this, intending to use this as an HTPC. I downloaded chrome, plex media server, steam, and then the system froze completely. After that it would power on with very loud fan noise, but wouldn't...

Small form factor, would be perfect for an HTPC if it worked.

Wouldn't boot, even to BIOS, after OS install. Completely bricked after being on for only a few hours.

Very small, very cute, and everything works

 

I got this to replace a failing Shuttle, another tiny computer. But this is so much better it is amazing. It's CU is an i3, not the fastest but very solid. I use linux (debian), and usually have problems getting computers set up and running properly....

It is really, really small. Not exactly a con, but it's smaller than you would think possible. It looks like a usb port. It is not totally silent (my Shuttle was, except for the dvd), but it is very quiet unless under a heavy load. Some people complain...

Do not buy this mini PC

64 mb Video RAM is the MAX

 

This is a great little machine, easy to setup, boots fast, low heat, low noise, etc.

Video RAM allocated from the system is fixed at 64 mb. Windows Media Center states the "computer is not digital cable ready" and it will not stream HD TV from the SiliconDust HD CableCard box...the whole reason I bought the Brix was to be a HTPC/DVR to...

Utterly awesome!

 

My life feels more fulfilled since getting this little thing.

First pro: size. It makes the Mac Mini look like a ship's anchor! I go to an art school where most people blindly follow the cult of Mac, and it's fun to be able to point at their gigantic Mac Minis they use for art installations, and say "still using...

If there's a con, it's POSSIBLY the wifi card. Sometimes I have problems with the wifi dropping, though this has become more rare. It seems to happen mostly when I'm on an encrypted network at some distance from the router. There is talk this may be...

Great desktop box

 

Runs GNU/Linux just fine. Running Xubuntu 14.10 very well. Plays 1080p video, with SSD extremely fast boot time. Good Linux support for the Intel video drivers. Might need some backports if running older kernel then 14.10.

Runs Linux very well. Quiet. Mounted behind monitor. Good mounting solution.
