toby, General user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Runs Linux easily. Install openELEC and in 20 minutes you have a fully functional HTPC. Happily runs a full distro though (Linux Mint).
Bad points:
USB sticks appear as HDD's in the BIOS boot order. Confusing when trying to boot from a USB stick.

Andy, London Music & entertainment fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Just FreeDOS on this model, easy to wipe and install what you want (OpenElec for me).
Good connectivity, WiFi + Gigabit Ethernet.
Quiet unless pushed.
Multiple stand arrangements.
Bad points:
Lots of screws to get to the hard drive, worth it though as quieter and faster with an SSD. Guides on Youtube so easily worked out.
Packaged like a premium product in a shiny box, would have rather had it another couple of quid cheaper!

Phillip, Coventry Music & entertainment fan

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Cheap, aesthetically pleasing, excellent value for money product. Is used as an xbmc box without too much issue. However, make sure You use a fusion specific build of xbmc (openelec in my case).

This nettop is absolutely ideal as a HTPC.
Bad points:
AMD support within Linux based operating systems is somewhat poor and requires a bit more setup than normal.

Ian, Bristol General user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Cheap PC for use as a media streamer, memory upgrade very easy
Bad points:
Supplied OS is very basic as expected, cannot understand why the boot sequence is not set to boot from CD or USB before the HDD when manufactured as something (Unix or Windows) has to be loaded to make the PC useable. Not a system for someone without basic PC engineering knowledge.

Andrew, Cardiff General user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Does exactly what it says it does.

Bad points:
System is essentially unusable with the standard (Open DOS) OS. This is more of an observation than a criticism since the product clearly states that this is the supplied OS; beginners may struggle.
