Gigabyte Brix Gaming UHD

 

The Gigabyte Brix Gaming UHD small-form-factor desktop is an ideal space-saver with a minimalist design at a sensible price, but there are some caveats regarding power and upgrades.

Compact design. Upgradable storage. Packs reasonable power for its size.

GTX 950 is good for 1080p, but not an ideal card, and not upgradable. Not cost effective compared with slightly larger prebuilt PCs. Component installation a bit complicated.

For more details, including full benchmark testing results, check out the Gigabyte Brix Gaming UHD review on our sister site, Computer Shopper.

Gigabyte Brix S Review

 

For some time now Gigabyte have been creating and refining their ultra compact PCs, calling them BRIX. Now with the latest Intel i5 CPU and the option for high performance storage and memory we test one of their current models in our Gigabyte Brix S...

Looking first at the build quality and design of the Gigabyte Brix S we have a system which is discrete and compact. Its black chassis is easy to hide away, or mount out of sight. There are no garish LEDs and access to the internal components is very...

Gigabyte Brix review

 

Just when you thought PCs couldn't get any smaller

Tiny form factor ; Good HD video playback ; Dual-channel memory support

Limited connectivity ; High price ; No RAM or HDD included

In Gigabyte's attempt to out-Intel the NUC, it's fallen into the same trap as its forbears: the Brix is just too darned small. Considering these aren't portable devices you can use on the go, what's the point in shaving every possible millimeter when...

Would be great if Gigabyte would respond with a phone number... I sure was not able to connect with them earlier today. I wonder if they actually go outside their site and try to lon into it from time to time.

See previous post.

Sorry for the typos on my past review post on this little compact system. I have to apologize for those typos, but it's after midnight after unboxing and attempting to complete installation since around 3 PM.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Quiet, small, and powerful mini-pc with a few caveats.

 

I read some reviews that started people had issues installing "older" OSes like Windows 7 and using the provided tool that merges a Windows installation disk with required drivers to support the new Skylake chipset limitations for pre-3.0 USB support;...

Size, low noise, performance, VESA monitor mount provided.

Installing older OSes more cumbersome (requires OS support for legacy (non-3.0) USB, BIOS update requires DOS boot flash drive (WTH ... 2015/6 people), price is a little high, limited to M.2 B-Key drives (a taller version can support a standard laptop...

Total waste of time. Terrible reliability, hardware, quality control.

 

Absolutely not

Specs look nice on paper.

Went through two of these units. Both dead-on-arrival. I have been building machines for 20 years and cannot remember being frustrated with hardware quality issues like this. Tried multiple hard drives, multiple memory kits, multiple displays, multiple...
