Quiet, cool, but very poor performance


VGA out is useful for running this budget PC with old LCD monitors you might find at the Goodwill.

Completely quiet

VESA mountable

Good wIfi, etc.


Fairly small/light
Not that many USB ports

HD videos can sometime stutter during playback

Very limited GPU/CPU performance, so limited uses
I'm running Windows 10 on one of these, with 8GB of RAM and a Samsung SSD; the device itself is very quiet, but it's also very slow.

Certain videos will lag, so this is not the best choice for a HTPC. Not all videos will lag, but there is a stutter with some Youtube videos that I found distracting. I suppose there might be a video player that can make better use of the available hardware to accelerate video playback, but Google Chrome isn't one of them at least.

Where I'm using this box is in my home audio recording studio; I'm able to record podcasts to it without having a fan making noise. I cannot do video editing on this device though, but it handles basic audio editing, even if it is a bit sluggish with some audio editor plugins.

It's usable for browsing the web, but only for casual use; in the long run you will save a lot of time getting a faster computer for such tasks.

Ultimately, there are faster Celeron/Pentium chips out there with the same unit price, which can be made fanless, so I'm a bit bothered by the choice made here. That said, it gets the job done for me.

Experience: 2 Days

Nice Little Fanless Barebone System

I've been researching for fanless PCs with reasonable power for some time. Run into this and decided to give it a try. I threw in 4GB RAM and a 240GB SSD, installed Windows 10 (64-bit) on it. The experience is quite smooth.

If you want to install Windows 7, there is a utility from GigaByte which adds drivers for USB3 to the installation media. Otherwise there may be problems installing the OS.

The unit is nicely built, mostly metal for heat dissipation, with some room for air circulation. It does feel warm when the system in on for a while.

It's easy to put in the RAM and the SSD; just follow the quick user guide. GigaByte has all the necessary drivers for Windows 10 on its website if you don't want to use the default ones from Microsoft.

The performance is acceptable for normal day to day use such as web browsing, checking emails, watching HD videos and office work. You can feel the slowness of CPU when processing power is needed but the SSD helps a lot for improving the overall response time. The key is that the system is completely silent which opens up a lot of opportunities for its usage.

Experience: 20 Days

Works well

Used as replacement parts for burnt out lenovo mini. Swapped HD, RAM and it worked well. Runs a touch warm, but not outside expectations.

Experience: 7 Days


Small, Fanless
Bought this to replace an ancient Core 2 Duo Machine that I was using as an HTPC.

Put 8GB of RAM and 120GB SSD and installed Windows 10 PRO

I tried streaming netflix, youtube on Chrome and the performance was horrible.. SLOW, choppy, CPU at 100% .
Streaming from my NAS using VLC gave me the same results.
It almost made me regret my purchase.

I decided to try Edge (MS browser for Windows 10) and the performance was amazing... Netflix played beautiful at the full resolution, 1080P videos from Youtube played without a hitch. CPU stayed low (around 35-40%).

Movie Stream from my NAS using the Windows Movie and TV app was also flawless.

I would like to get Chrome/VLC to work nice with this little box. In the meantime I will stick with the native Windows 10 apps.

It's small.
Very bad CPU and GPU performance.
I purchased this to use as an HTPC. I knew the CPU was not the fastest but wasn't prepared for the real issue. The GPU in the Intel Celeron N3000 is just pathetic. It scored 2 on the Windows 7 index. I've never seen a Windows 7 score that low before. It won't play Netflix video without stuttering either. The performance of this box compares to some 15 year old PCs I've sent to the recycling depot. Avoid at all costs.

Experience: 1 Months


Small, Low power machine.
None yet
Using it as a light weight headless arch linux server. Works Great.
