Great HTPC


Had this about 6 months... everything running ok, so far. Make sure you use the recommended RAM!!! Have mine set up as a HTPC, streaming HD video. Installed Windows 8.1, XBMC (Kodi), using bluetooth connection to my phone as remote. Works great in this...

Easy setup Inexpensive Small footprint. Very quiet (with SSD)

Documentation could be a bit better. Overall, no complaints.

great product and very easy to assemble


highly recommend it. I bought several since my first purchase

small enough to hide behind the monitor yet powerful enough to perform as well as any desktop

I have been using it as my main desktop; had one little issue- had a hard time getting to tech support -long wait; but solved the problem immediately - once I got a technician

Great micro PC


The wifi issue is not a device problem but a software configuration problem in Linux. You're welcome.

Quad core processor, tiny size, 1 USB 3.0, 2 USB 2.0, VGA, HDMI, good sound. Coupled with 8 gig RAM, a washable keyboard, wireless mouse and monitor makes a great kitchen computer. A great deal at the price.

Be aware that the Realtek wireless (RTL8723BE) requires conf file editing to function well in Ubuntu or Mint. Create /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8723be.conf Add a line that reads: options rtl8723be fwlps=N swlps=N swenc=Y disable_watchdog=Y Save it. It will...

good so far


Easy setup. Instructions are simple but sufficient. Performance is better than expected. I thought it might struggle with Plex, but cpu usage is under 50% Small. Easily tuck this behind my TV without my son noticing it.

None so far. Seems to be a great little device. Granted I have only had it a few hours at this point it seems like a great purchase.

Impressive little box


The drivers come on a CD, so I had to use another computer to transfer everything to a USB drive. Kind of annoying, but for the 100 dollars I spent on this while it was on sale, this thing is awesome.

I use it as a htpc. I've had both Debian 8 and Windows 7 installed on this, both worked great. For less than 200 dollars I was able to get a little PC that is able to stream anything I throw at it. It also handles steam in home streaming great. No...

Not a lot of USB ports, but you know that going into it. The wifi card lost connection occasionally when I first got it. I moved the router and that fixed it. The wifi card works, just has less range than I would have otherwise liked. Not removing an...

Great little Barebones PC!


Am running it 24/7 to connect with my wireless weather station, which in turn connects via wifi to Weatherunderground. Am very impressed so far. For less than 200 bucks you can have a nice little working little pc !

Small- can fit in your hand. Runs Cool. Runs Windows 7 Fine.Installed windows 7 64bit from a USB DVD drive. Make sure to select proper OS in Bios. Only have tried the built in wifi, not the bluetooth, but it works fine. Am using 4GB of crucial Cdr3...

Maybe that it has a small fan in it which will most likely get noisy or stop working at some point

Cool little box


From my research on the Web; Win10 runs better than Win7/8 on these type of boxes. I was little worried when I saw it was quad core Celerion but it runs continuously at 2.4GHz. After couple of boots for the SSHD to adapt it works well. By all means,...

Nice little box. I had F6 BIOS version with no problems installing Win10 from USB. I used a 500GB 5400RPM SSHD from Seagate and 8GB memory stick. It cold boots in about 20-25sec. I can stream smoothly Netflix from either Wifi or Gigabit ethernet port...

It would be really, really nice if it had an eSATA port and two more USB ports. Max supported graphics resolution is little poor.

J1900 CPU Is A Winner!


About a year ago we bought an ASRock Q1900 motherboard which has a Celeron J1900 embedded on the board. It has a heatsink but no fan, and it runs about 42 deg. C. in a mid-tower case with a single 120mm exhaust fan (no intake fan). The mid-tower case...

Intel Celeron J1900 is a very good low power quad-core cpu. It handles all everyday computer tasks well while drawing only 4 to 6 watts of power (max. power consumption is 10 watts which is rarely needed). We use it in a little home theater PC we...

Not a con really but remember to use low voltage memory (1.35v) and , since RAM is inexpensive these days, go ahead and get an 8GB stick for best results.

Great little PXE Boot Server


Improve the sata cable so that it is less prone to failure.

I am using this as a PXE boot server and for that purpose it is great. Installed RAM and hard drive (switched to SSD as soon as the drive arrived) and installed Windows 8.1 and then upgraded 10 without issue. I even did another second clean install of...

The Sata bus resets every once in a while. I have had 3 different drives in it and all do the same thing so I suspect it it the (flimsy) sata cable since it happens on all drives I have tried. It does cause the computer to freeze for about 30 seconds...
