"Bought it with high hopes of running movies and using it from time to time as a web-browser. I have no idea why I bothered. As a web-browser, it churns to load pages; as a movie player sk-sk-sk-sk-ip; movie, movie, sk-sk-sk-sk-skip.....
"So far, everything goes well with Q150. fit the living room well. This is a fantastic nettop. It's really tiny and barely makes any noise. Only the cpu fans make a tiny noise. The performance is great for HTPC usage and I also use it to run some servers."
"Received this as a Christmas gift. Had seen it on the web and showed it to my wife as a gift suggestion. When I unpacked it I noticed it did not have a 500G HD as advertised, but rather a 250G HD. Very disappointing since I intended to load some movies I own along with my music library. Then when I hooked it up I discovered that it did not support 5.1 or 7.1 surround. You are stuck with stereo. The unit is also very slow which I blame on the lack of RAM and the small processor trying to run Win7. Lastly I had hoped that the small remote would allow you to turn the unit on and off. You can't. Because of where I have the unit located that means I have to leave it on all the time which I don't like doing.
Overall I am less than impressed with this unit. I bought it to use as a media hub/player/streaming device, and do not think it is well suited for this purpose. I think I would be happier with something like the WD Live HD Hub which comes with a 1T HD, apps for downloading Netflix and Blockbuster On-Demand and the ability to turn it on and off with the remote. If I had known about the WD unit I would have asked for it and saved my wife a couple hundred dollars."
