Purchased this same model in July 2017 to use as a HTPC with PLEX. Unit performs well and the internal speaker is a wonderful surprise in quality of sound. Wireless is AC wireless not just b/g/n. The included wireless keyboard and mouse are inexpensive but very usable. One caveat - the unit is difficult to upgrade and not for the uninitiated. There is a m.2 SSD slot on the LYON motherboard but a challenge to access. If one is seeking an inexpensive, quality and handsome HTPC - strongly recommended.

I also bought one of these the first time around. Couldn’t be happier. I primarily bought it for media box and video game emulation purposes. It handles both flawlessly. Obviously it’s not a high-end gaming machine and will choke if you start to turn the graphics up on newer games, but I was thoroughly impressed when I fired up Stanley Parable, it handled it without breaking a sweat.

I don’t use the internal speaker because my TV is routed through a sound bar, but I tried it out and was really happy with the quality. Would be great just sitting in the middle of a room as a music streamer.

CPU benchmark - not a bad value for the $

Has anyone opened this to add a SSD or graphics card? There’s talk online that it’s possible, but I can only find a couple of crappy YouTube videos that don’t really show much. How much of a PITA is it to add a SSD?

xmason99 discussed the upgradability of this computer in pretty significant detail in the discussion thread the last time this came up.

Thanks!
It appears this would accept the SSD that woot has for sale now over at https://computers.woot.com/offers/famous-maker-m-2-ssd-nvme-256gb-3?ref=w_cnt_lnd_cat_pc_10_1. Anyone disagree?

mine arrived broken from woot. I had to have HP repair it. it took 32 days before I got a working PC.

My computer was delivered today. The box was re-taped shut so I’m thinking I got an used refurbished computer. Then this popped up after turning it on:

The warranty expired almost three weeks before I even ordered this!

Whoo-ho! HP took care of it. 90 days from the order date not delivery date but at least they did it.
