Makes a Perfect HTPC


Lots of power in a tiny package. Really everything you would ever need for an HTPC to run XBMC/Kodi.

Haswell i3 is surprisingly fast, tiny (only about the size of a small book), Intel HD 4400 plays back 1080p HD content perfectly, takes 2.5 inch drives, comes with with wifi, makes almost no noise even under load

A tad expensive once you add RAM and an SSD

A Solid PC


Seriously, only a couple days of testing and I'm ecstatic to have found this product. I came from a custom built Dell Zino HD that had heat problems even when I tried to make it right. It was a great size and good enough for media PC but this Brix is...

Case machined high quality - extremely accurate, well built. Vents are properly designed/positioned ; Internals are well laid out - hardware of high quality ; i3 is fast enough for most average use computing - I use it as media PC and have not heard...

Nifty little PC


A bit tricky to install Windows 7 due to UEFI BIOS and no DVD drive. I tried a couple of suggestions with no luck until I tried the Rufus utility.

Small and quiet, decent performance for boring office tasks

Wish it had a rear audio jack so all the cables could be run out the back

Nice size, OVERHEATS!


Shining a flashlight into the back vent where the fan blows out, you can see that it almost touches the top of the case, meaning that air flow is minimal or non-existent because the motherboard almost completely blocks the side air vents. I haven't...

small form factor ; i3 dual core cpu ; low power requirements ; arrived with latest F5 bios

Plain and simple: CPU overheats very easily ; Just running memtest86+v5.20, the cpu will hit 60 deg C after one pass and then freeze. Keep in mind, I haven't even installed a hard drive yet! When that gets put in, the system temps will be higher ;...
