2 out of 5 eggs64 mb Video RAM is the MAX

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!

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

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

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

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

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for HTPC

Pros: - Silent if not doing demanding tasks
- Tiny footprint
- Included VESA mount, WiFi/Bluetooth
- Actually usable as a full on PC and not a gimmick cheap PC

Cons: Fan loud, but only when gaming

Other Thoughts: This makes a perfect HTPC that is silent while playing movies in XBMC from a NAS. Fast and responsive compared to my Raspberry Pi. Is even able to play "indie" games from Steam (Shadowrun Returns, Rogue Legacy, etc) at 1080p. With built in Bluetooth, was able to wirelessly connect to a PS3 controller to play, which is really nice.

With it's small size, mostly silent operation, and ability to actually run a full version of Windows, this makes a great HTPC that can do anything, and even a nice desktop replacement for internet browsing and light office work and even some gaming.

Since it's given such good results, I've ordered over a dozen to be used in a school and have them attached to the back of the LCD monitors using the included VESA bracket. Makes a super clean and low profile work environment.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little machine

Pros: Small & Fast, good daily use machine

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: I just bought this machine to replace a very old Dell. I really did not need or want a tower, I wanted something very small and this fit the bill. Now, I've only had it for a week and I still have not moved all my file off the Dell, but so far it works great.

The machine boots fast and is silent (okay it has a little fan but you really can't hear it). The built quality is excellent and I'm thinking about buying them for work.

Loaded Win7 via external CDROM and it was up and running in 30 minutes + another couple hours for all the MS updates.

4 out of 5 eggsVery nice little machine

Pros: Very small, very powerful, plenty of USB ports. RAM and SSD are easily accessible. Includes WiFi and NIC.

Cons: It would've been nice to have a more supported WiFi card out of the box, had to jump through some hoops to get it to work on linux. An eSATA port would've also been nice but at least this device has USB 3.0

Other Thoughts: Perfect for a home server, HTPC, NAS, whatever. This thing has plenty of power and can easily handle multiple tasks.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little PC, Bad WiFi

Pros: This is a great little PC for it's size. It's fast, quite and the added VESA Mount is a big plus. Easy hardware install and has room to grow if needed.
Works great with Windows 7, 8.1 and Ubuntu 13.04

Cons: The only Con I found has been the Wifi adaptor. Realtek usually is pretty good but this one is just pathetic. I had the unit sitting 6in from AP and could watch the signal just go up and down. I tested it in WIndows 7, 8.1 and Ubuntu 13.04 and all gave the same results no matter what driver I used.

Other Thoughts: Overall it is a great product even with the Wifi issues which is easily fixed by replacing the Wifi adaptor. I went with the Intel 7260HMW and now the WiFi is rock solid and I also now have WiDi to boot. (Below is a direct link).

5 out of 5 eggsThe fan noise

Pros: Very quiet with just little fan noise. In response to some of the other comments about fan noise. I suppressed to find out it had a fan, also. When I first heard I thought the unit was frying. Even playing a game the noise is extremely less than my mid tower case. I am thinking of get an i5 unit for a friend.

Cons: none
