Consumer review (newegg.com)

Not worth buying

 

Quick start up

Ethernet port does not function well. I have to restart it several times a day to keep internet access. I bought two Chromeboxes and both have ethernet connectivity problems

Plain

 

Got this for my dad to use in his shop. Easy and made for surfing the web or looking for car catalogs when everything is web based only. Fast and no dealing with constant updates.

Perfect for Kodi Media Player

 

Got it for just one purpose, install openelec to play media on my home server and some online content. Easy to install openelec and hardware is perfect, even bitstreams DTS-HD and TrueHD to my AV Receiver. It is a dual boot, so I could use Chrombox op...
