Detailed review
I use this as a PLEX player under my TV and it's absolutely fantastic. Small, beautiful and doesn't make a sound. For me it's perfect. I've upgraded the RAM from 2GB to 8GB and that made a real speed difference.
I went with the 599$ version and that is power enough for my media watching needs.

I highly recommend this if you need a media PC.
