1 out of 5 eggsDied after little use

This review is from: GIGABYTE GB-BXi3-4010 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 4400 Integrated by CPU Black Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: Speed demon, great construction

Cons: Incompatible with Windows 10, weak driver support, would be better if HDMI+VGA for troubleshooting, rather than mdp.

Other Thoughts: After running on windows 7 very quickly and reliably, system stopped booting past windows screen. Formatted and installed windows 10. Supplied drivers from Gigabyte website instantly kill the video output. System runs too slow on basic win 10 install drivers to be functional. Gigabyte site a nightmare to try to put in a simple ticket. Wishing I had bought a shuttle.

1 out of 5 eggsVery Expensive Paperweight

This review is from: GIGABYTE GB-BXi3-4010 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 4400 Integrated by CPU Black Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: Small form factor, would be perfect for an HTPC if it worked.

Cons: Wouldn't boot, even to BIOS, after OS install. Completely bricked after being on for only a few hours.

Other Thoughts: I used the same installation media on my work laptop and this, intending to use this as an HTPC. I downloaded chrome, plex media server, steam, and then the system froze completely. After that it would power on with very loud fan noise, but wouldn't display any boot logo, and despite numerous attempts, wouldn't even boot into the BIOS. (It was BIOS ver. F7 when it did boot.)

Purchased this as a Newegg deal on 3/10/16, it arrived and broke on 3/12/16. I installed the Newegg included RAM and SSD, so it isn't some sort of odd hardware incompatibility.

5 out of 5 eggsVery small, very cute, and everything works

This review is from: GIGABYTE GB-BXi3-4010 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 4400 Integrated by CPU Black Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: I got this to replace a failing Shuttle, another tiny computer. But this is so much better it is amazing. It's CU is an i3, not the fastest but very solid. I use linux (debian), and usually have problems getting computers set up and running properly. This one had absolutely no problems. Initially the installation (from a usb drive with no problem) complained about the firmware needed for the realtek network, wifi, and bluetooth. But ut installed the network firmware during the installation process, and everything worked just fine. Display is excellent at 1920x1080, audio worked fine. This is the first time for any computer that everything worked. I did have to manually install the realtk firmware drivers for the wifi and bluetooth, and the wifi setup was a little nonstandard, but it works. I usually will use ethernet to the router, but it is good to have the options.

I got the second monitor working by getting a miniDP to HDMI cable; plugged it in and it worked immediately. Video plays perfectly smoothly at this resolution.

I ran some intensive computations on my office machine (an i5) and on this simultaneously. It was about 1/3 slower. Not bad.

Cons: It is really, really small. Not exactly a con, but it's smaller than you would think possible. It looks like a usb port. It is not totally silent (my Shuttle was, except for the dvd), but it is very quiet unless under a heavy load.

Some people complain about the RAM. You do need to get the 1.35v laptop RAM -- I have 16G that works fine.

Pros: Small!

Cons: I was bought this one but it was not working and then I replacement service by Gigabyte.
After 3 month later, it was shutdown again again,
I asked it repair service but I could not because Gigabite web side was not working.

2 out of 5 eggs64 mb Video RAM is the MAX

This review is from: GIGABYTE GB-BXi3-4010 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 4400 Integrated by CPU Black Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: This is a great little machine, easy to setup, boots fast, low heat, low noise, etc.

Cons: Video RAM allocated from the system is fixed at 64 mb. Windows Media Center states the "computer is not digital cable ready" and it will not stream HD TV from the SiliconDust HD CableCard box...the whole reason I bought the Brix was to be a HTPC/DVR to replace the cable company's cable box. It cannot do it due to the fixed RAM. I should have done my homework better and got an Intel NUC in which the Video RAM can be set up to 512mb. As much as I love Gigabyte (I have 3 other systems with their motherboards) I do not recommend this product.

5 out of 5 eggsUtterly awesome!

This review is from: GIGABYTE GB-BXi3-4010 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 4400 Integrated by CPU Black Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: First pro: size. It makes the Mac Mini look like a ship's anchor! I go to an art school where most people blindly follow the cult of Mac, and it's fun to be able to point at their gigantic Mac Minis they use for art installations, and say "still using those old behemoths?

Second pro: performance. I use this to run art installations, usually running programs written in Processing, which sometimes have a bit of a performance overhead, since they use Java. I was able to run an installation that pulled data from a webcam using computer vision libraries, amplitude information from a microphone, and then threw GPU accelerated 2D visuals on the screen. The CPU usage never exceeded about 30%, which really is quite good considering everything going on. Haven't tried it with 3D yet, but it seems to be moderately capable in this department.

I also draw on it using Inkscape, which doesn't slow down until I get maybe 3500 nodes on the screen, which is pretty respectable.

The only time it showed its limitations was really when it played Shadowrun: Dragonfall for Linux. The game was playable, but could be better. However, it's my opinion that this game isn't as optimized as it could be, considering it lagged a bit on a 6-core overclocked AMD Phenom II with a Radeon R7 260X.

Third Pro: stylish and quiet. Frankly, I think the design is not only smaller than the Mac Mini, but more stylish. Unlike many stylish PCs, it's not even derivative of Apple stuff. The polished black plexiglass top is as nice as it looks in the pictures, the black aluminum on the sides has a nice silver bevel cut into the edge. The black aluminum sides also have a nice, apparently durable flat powdercoat. Oh, and it's quiet. Mostly, you hardly hear it. If the CPU usage clears maybe 30-40%, it's possible to hear the fan, but this is only a problem if you are in a virtually silent room. In my installations, you can't hear the fan if there's even a little background noise (like chatter, or the ventilation system).

Fourth pro: regular HDMI port. No buying special mini HDMI cables like the Intel NUC, or any of that mini DisplayPort bogosity. Just plug in your HDMI cable and go. Does HDMI audio out, and regular headphone jack out too.

Fifth pro: works great with Linux. No problems with installation or hardware recognition. Runs very smoothly. I don't think it's ever crashed since installing Linux (Mint KDE) in November. By that I mean I've had a few programs crash (mostly Inkscape), but never a total freeze that required reboot. No, I tell a lie, the other day it inexplicably froze on boot, but these things happen with any machine.

Cons: If there's a con, it's POSSIBLY the wifi card. Sometimes I have problems with the wifi dropping, though this has become more rare. It seems to happen mostly when I'm on an encrypted network at some distance from the router. There is talk this may be the fault of how Linux works with encrypted Wifi in general, as this is not the only machine to report these issues. Hasn't happened in a few weeks, but I've been using it much closer to the router. I will point out in its favor this is likely a Linux issue, as I tried a USB wifi dongle that had the same problems. So if you're running Windows, you'll most likely be fine. I also found that sharing the Wifi connection from my table via bluetooth was a viable option for basic web browsing and music streaming, but insufficient for Netflix (which works *directly* through Chrome with Linux now, FYI!) or torrent downloads.

The other con, and this is a nitpick, is that if you wall mount it (which works great!), the power cable has to slightly sit on top of the HDMI cable. It doesn't cause it to stick out from the case or anything but that could've been done better.

Other Thoughts: My life feels more fulfilled since getting this little thing.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat desktop box

This review is from: GIGABYTE GB-BXi3-4010 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 4400 Integrated by CPU Black Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: Runs Linux very well.
Quiet.
Mounted behind monitor.
Good mounting solution.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Runs GNU/Linux just fine. Running Xubuntu 14.10 very well. Plays 1080p video, with SSD extremely fast boot time. Good Linux support for the Intel video drivers. Might need some backports if running older kernel then 14.10.

4 out of 5 eggsVery good quiet compact system

This review is from: GIGABYTE GB-BXi3-4010 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 4400 Integrated by CPU Black Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: small form factor, quiet, low power consumption, good quality, optical SPDIF output.

Cons: Quality not quite up to other Brix models I own, performance not quite up to playing Minecraft

Other Thoughts: This is the thrid Brix I've purchased, all different models. This is the first one that has given me anything but a flawless installation experience. On this unit, the action of the clip holding one of the ram modules was not very smooth. I actually had to bend the plastic tab out a little to get it to accept the RAM module. Other than that, I have no complaints with the quality.

I am running Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS on this machine, as with my other Brixes. I haven't noticed any problems running this OS. I tested the graphics performance with glmark2, and for what it's worth, it received marks slightly lower than an Nvidia GT630 on another machine, around 1300-1400. It is more than capable of playing 1080p videos.

Under most circumstances, this Brix is very quiet. Playing a 1080p video from disk, I literally have to put my head about a foot away to hear any fan noise, even w/ the audio muted. About the only time the fan noise becomes excessive is when stressing the GPU, for example running glmark2. Maxing the CPU out w/ the cpu test program stress also produces some fan noise after a few minutes, but not much. These aren't typical conditions.

Power consumption is pretty good. It maxed out at ~29-30W when stressing the GPU with glmark2, and about 18W when running the CPU at 100% with stress. Under most circumstances, including playing a 1080p video, it typically seems to run around 15W.

I would give this unit about a C+/B- on the "minecraft test". Basically my minecraft players in the house tell me is " a little laggy". You can also hear that the GPU is working hard, as the fan noise increases quite a bit.

Overall, I think this Brix is more than powerful and quiet enough for use as a media pc, but somewhat underpowered for use as a full-fledged general desktop in my situation. However, for basic web browsing, video playing, etc,, I would recommend it.

5 out of 5 eggsTriple monitors

This review is from: GIGABYTE GB-BXi3-4010 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel HD Graphics 4400 Integrated by CPU Black Mini-PC Barebone

Pros: Powerful and quiet. I am using it with an Acer touch screen as first monitor and with a Sabrent USB video adapter I can run second monitor. I have it connected with a Staples common Multi USB adapter. It starts with no hang ups. I have another touch screen and I will see how they work together.

Cons: none
