My Abusive Relationship

 

So, would I recommend this product to others? Well... sorta. On the one hand, once you get it working properly it is a truly marvelous computing device. On the other hand, getting it to that state is like having a kidney removed. With a rusty spork....

It's very small. I mean, the pictures and measurements indicate that it isn't very big, but I didn't really grasp how minuscule this thing is till it was physically sitting in the palm of my hand. And I don't have big hands. The power of this device,...

Okay, so I thought I new what I was getting into when I purchased this item. Like most folks, I read reviews before I pulled the trigger and noticed that, at the time of my purchase, roughly 18% of the reviews were 1 star. This means one (or a...

Performance is Decent... if you can stand the noise.

 

-I bought this unit for use as a mobile lab to test Graphics Virtualization - if that is your intent be aware that there is only one graphics core available, which you'd be able to pass thru anyway... so, not sure what the point is just yet. -Put...

-Form factor and power for the size is great. This is a Co-Work office dream. -Built in Wi-FI worked (didn't test BT as of this writing) -VESA mounting -Intel Graphics work shockingly well for basic content creation and daily use -No lags in...

-The Fan. My lord, the Fan. Your options are to keep it at a constant baseline of going (noisy) or face random speeds of the fan ranging from a going concern to full on fan panic that will make you take your hands off the keyboard and beg forgiveness...

Plex Server - So Far, So Good

 

Installing Win 7 Ultimate from USB was tricky and I had to look up BIOS settings before it would work, but whatevs. Wasn't a biggie, just be aware. 16GB of G.Skill (F3-1600C9D-16GRSL) 500GB Samsung mSATA (850 EVO) Gives me a 6.9 on the experience index...

This this is tiny! Seriously smaller than a standard ATX power supply. Looks sharp and feels solid. Powerful enough for my Plex server needs. Sexy!

Noticed a bit of a loose connection on one of the USB ports.

Fast but USB Problems

 

Small form factor, well built. We use 8GB RAM, 120GB SSD External USB 3.0 Hard Drive

The unit will not boot with ANY Drive over 2TB attached via USB externally, it simply hangs at the POST screen. It works with a 2TB drive but with a 3TB WD or 4TB Seagate, it simply hangs at the POST screen. This is unacceptable.

Great Machine for small footprint

 

I've had this machine for over a month and its running great. Running a 250GB M-sata and a 500GB Sata2 drive. 16GB RAM. I put CentOS 7 on this box. Now i know this isn't a typical desktop setup, but its what i use for work mostly so i decided to try...

Great Performance. Good Build Quality Easy Setup Price point.

No WIFI drivers for RHE/CentOS Fan Noise. This machine isn't used for gaming but i wanted to see what kind of performance the Iris Pro would have. I fired up some older games like Team Fortress 2. Runs fine but the fan did kick up to high and it was...

I love this little box

 

It's fan is only loud if you give it a CPU-intensive task.

Small footprint, fast, quiet and powerful. Popped in the memory dimms, plugged in the cables, and it worked flawlessly. I bought two and installed one with Fedora 23 Linux and the other with Windows 10. Both work great.

This machine and many like it do not come with a microphone jack, which I need for some things. I had to buy a small, cheap USB-attached audio/mic combo (which also worked well).

Small and Powerful

 

This is my second Brix and I like it for being quiet and fast. Easy to set up and with Windows10 on a thumb drive it only took about 25 minutes to install.

The Little Brix That Can

 

Don't let the size mislead you. The unit has no problem driving my Asus PB279Q display at it's max 3840 x 2160 4k resolution through the miniDP port in addition to a secondary 21" monitor through the HDMI. I added 16GB of GSkill DDR3-l 1866 memory, a...

Freezes - Must be hard reset often.

 

I would be so happy.jpg if these things were tested before they go out the door. Gigabyte's tech support was pretty quick and thorough (appreciated!) but I won't go down this road again.

It's cute, tiny and dare I say sexy

It runs hot. The first unit locked up before I could get W7 installed, the second unit didn't even make it that far. Maybe if I installed it in the freezer it would have survived but apparently sitting in free air on my bar was just too much for it....
