I purchased this great mini PC for the price of 280 USD using a coupon. It is a 6 core i7-8750H processor, with 2 NVMe slots, 1 SATA slot, and 2 RAM slots. A card with Wifi and BT is already installed in the device. It is a barebone system, the ideal choice, because you can source the SSD and the RAM locally with proper warranty, these being the items which are more susceptible to warranty claims. I added an SSD of 1 TB Kingston KC2000 and 2x16 GB sticks of DDR4 RAM clocked at 2666 Mhz. The BIOS has a few power options available, but they can be fully accessed with the Intel XTU software. If you get an "unsupported platform error" when installing XTU, it can be bypassed by a little editing of the install parameters (google the issue). In terms of performace, the system barely breaks a sweat for 1080p video encoding, with 50% CPU usage and 60 C temperature. For general processor scores there are plenty of online results already, as it is not a new processor. The thing I love most about this system is that it is very silent in idle and day to day usage. The fan barely makes it to 44 dB, which means it is practically inaudible. You will not know if it is on or off, just by listening in the room. When encoding 1080p video the fan ramps up a little more and it hovers at around 57 dB., which is quite audible but not annoying. And when the processor is in full 100% usage, the fan revs up even higher to peaks of 65-67 dB, which is considerably loud, but keeps the CPU temps hovering around 80 C. You can see my video review on youtube by accesing this link https://youtu.be/Fa5VllRzkqw . I tried submitting the video twice to the product page, but banggood insists I place a link to the product in the video description before they can accept it. This is ridiculous, considering the video would be featured on banggood precisely on the product page. It's because such silly rules that we see so very few video reviews on banggood. I didn't even get the lousy points last time

This is a great mini PC for the price of 260 USD that I paid for it (after applying a coupon). It is not perfect, but it is value for money nevertheless. The size surprised me, I knew it was small, but I did not fully understand how small it was until I was holding it in my hand. Impressive to say the least. The build quality is also excellent, solid metal case except for the plastic sides for the wifi antennas. Screws for the HDD, the case lid and the SSD are included in the box. But the VESA mount is not included, although the case has the necessary holes for it. The power limit out of the box is set to 25W which allows the CPU to sustain continuously only about 2.4 Ghz on all 4 cores. But this can be changed using Intel's XTU (installed with a workaround to skip the platform check error, google it). The included charger is rather weak 19V 2.1A (40W) and allows the CPU to sustain a maximum of about 3 Ghz on all 4 cores after changing the power settings. The charger can be easily replaced with any standard laptop charger of greater power. The most I was able to get out of this configuration, using a separate 3.4A charger (65W), was 3.3 Ghz sustained on all 4 cores, which is quite smaller than the 4.6 Ghz that this CPU is rated for. It would probably go higher with the supplied cooler before thermal throttling, but it won't because of a BIOS current limit, that cannot be overridden with the XTU software. As CONS I would consider first the fan noise, which is rather loud and annoying, much more so than a standard laptop fan. It gets to over 62 dB at full load and cannot be ignored. This is not a mini PC you can leave running with heavy tasks in your bedroom at night. In idle the fan doesn't spin at all sometimes. Another con would be the LAN port lights and the front on/off LED, which are way too bright and can light up the room at night. Also the SATA3 connector is a proprietary 9 pin. The USB-C port does not support video-out.
