This was posted a few weeks back now as a daily deal and expired but this seems to be the default price now.

As mentioned before this i3 version with the projector is cheaper than the standard Brix one without. Seems to be considerably dearer elsewhere.

Had mine a week now and i'm very happy with it.

The GIGABYTE BRIX Projector: Illuminatingly Innovative

The BRIX Projector from GIGABYTE is a simple and elegantly integrated device that combines a full high-performance PC with a mini projector that can be deployed in almost any situation. Despite having an integrated projector, the device retains its ultra compact and portable form factor, making it one of the most versatile PC devices on the market.

Versatile Usage Scenarios

An ideal solution for users in a broad range of usage scenarios, the GIGABYTE BRIX is great for business users on the go, sharing a presentation, spreadsheet or website with colleagues or customers in an instant. Students living away from home can use the BRIX Projector as their main PC for assignments and course work, using the projector to enjoy movies and other entertainment during down time. Families will also appreciate being able to conveniently use the BRIX in any room in the home. Young children can enjoy cartoons in the bedroom, while older children can use it for everything from homework to PC gaming.

Independent DLP® Mini-Projector

The GIGABYTE BRIX Projector can also be used with an independent input source via its rear panel HMDI-in port, this is because the integrated projector can be independently powered on and used much as regular mini projector. In this way content can be conveniently displayed from any HDMI compatible device such as laptop PC or tablets. The BRIX Projector integrates a DLP® mini-projector from Texas Instruments which features multi-color processing for accurate and vibrant on-screen colors.

Integrated Audio System

With a headphone jack on the front panel that also doubles up as an optical digital output, the BRIX Projector also features integrated speakers and Dolby audio making it a great option for enjoying online content any place, any time.

You don’t mind the projector resolution being only 864 x 480?

Well technically the projecter is a freebie so it doesn't bother me. The standard Brix i3 model is about £20-£30 dearer.

I don't actually need the projector, but the quality is pretty good and over Christmas i'm using it to create a virtual Santa in the window of our house. Good for projecting onto walls in bedrooms though.

Holy Moley!

I don't care about the projector side of things but if I read this correctly this will support 4K video at 30fps using the HD4400?
If so this would make a cracking Media PC.

Can anyone confirm my thinking?

At 24hz yes, that can't surely be a decent image at such a low refresh rate!?!

24hz / 24fps is how a film is recorded. The 4400 is capable of 30hz on the U branded intel processors.

My current 1080p setup is set to run at 24hz on movies so you get no judder :)

I suppose one could project a christmas tree onto a wall, instead of actually going to the bother of setting one up and decorating it.

Well, you couldn't use it as a primary display but as a secondary display for for videos etc. it'd work well.

Yes, the one I posted is a 4th gen Haswell. The other Brix is still pretty good though.

This is a great deal for an i3 NUC style tiny computer, the fact it has a projector for no extra cost and very little extra size is an absolute bonus.

I've got the Celeron 1037u Brix and it plays HD video without issues and is a great Plex server, it's silent until the fan comes on when playing HD video and it's not too noisy (like a laptop fan sound)

I'd think this 4th gen i3 will be a great media PC and I quite like the idea of a projector for parties and stuff, ideal for some nice funky illuminations etc.

One thing I found when loading W7 via a USB stick, it would load the files, start installing then near the end it woul reboot then start the whole install process again from scratch, I realised that I needed to remove the USB memory stick at the reboot to make it carry on with installing.

The Intel NUC with the same CPU is currently £200 at Amazon.

Indeed. Same spec but no built in projector with that one though.

Also looks like that model doesn't have WiFi+BT card pre installed which the Brix one does.

You need a sheet or something to project it onto.

It doesn't but for the minority that care it strangely has an internal SATA 3 and USB 2 Header so if you leave the lid off you can access those ports.
It also has an Intel NIC which is a big deal for some!

No, but it has a tripod mount underneath and it actually comes with a mini tripod stand. Not sure if a Vesa tripod adapter exists?

This Brix I believe is mSATA only so if you bought a 2.5" SATA SSD it won't fit.
You'd need something like this for 2.5" drive support:
