    Hi All, i have a very similar one that i purchased about 12 months ago ( 4g 64g @$150 AU). It was purchases about the time when the 4g memory ones had appeared on Ebay for say a month and the price started becoming within $20 of the base 2g ram models

    I am very happy with it and it works fine. It is permanently next to my TV in the living room, has wifi and cat 5 plugged in and a small handheld wifi keyboard with trackpad.
    Despite the 100m lan speed, i can send a file from my pc, and by the time i get to the tv and change the channel the 200-1g file has been send and waiting for me – VLC does a great job in playback.

    I also use it at time for checking email and facebook plus playing youtube on the TV

    It is plugged in 24/7, it is silent the case can get warmish on the top, i have not opened it up, but if it every do i will see if i can add to the heatsink setup/ I did run cpu temp and stress test and it was fine i dont recall the figures it would have been about 50deg C idle to 60C when running as i panic when they get close to 70 on any of my devices

    Portability – i have taken it with me on a few overnights and weekends as i can plug into a tv with hdmi, we also have laptops and 1 Ipad

    It has gone to work a few times and played some network games at lunchtime with some of the reps on laptops.

    Being the baby Z8300 processor it is no speed demon but only stumbles at the biggest loads.

    The only negative is the lack of space, once win10 installed there is not much free room, this will disappear with constant win10 updates. I do need to check the update download directory and delete the old files. But it compensates with 1 x usb3 and 2 x usb2

    I am tempted to turn of the win10 updates in the startup services to save space – but will keep running defender updates

    I understand the critics, it does have its limitations, but this machine is not sold as the fastest pc on the market, and it is truly value for money, i have seen people spend more on a fancy keyboard than what this is selling for.

    Overall i give these items a 8/10 for practicality and value for money

    They should have made it have at least 16gb of ram and a 1tb ssd hard drive and a i7 7700k processor


    Hey Sir — I heard what you were saying but I don't quite think you got my issue. Since you're otherwise an extremely helpful person I pulled the comments. Keep up the good work!

    Doesn’t matter I was done at Windows 10
    Windows 10 sucks so bad you can’t give top PCs without reformatting it with something else

    Good day. I forgot my password, so I reset the Windows 10 operating system to factory settings. Now he wants a key to activate Windows a. What to do? When buying, was this key already entered and did I delete it?

  17. Petri

    So can I connect my 4tb external hard drive to this and use Plex to watch movies from it?

  18. john sherby

    im interested in buying one to use as a local steam streaming box. think it would be a pretty cool little box to set by the tv and stream demanding games like GTA straight to it! do you think it would work well? do you have any other cheap boxes you would reccommend?
