Anyone who wants a device that plays everything i.e Netflix, Prime Video, Now TV, Sky Go, Plex, Kodi etc etc... should buy one of these.

depends what they want to play it on, a 4k Firestick would be better for the average person, for the 'tinkerer' then this is a cheap play thing.
have the i5 version. It really is tiny, A better option than an all-in-one PC. I literally swapped out the SSD from my old machine and it ran like a dream (no bios changes or anything required which was lucky).

I maybe wrong here but I dont think HD4400 is HDR compatible. This unit would be fine as a low-rent NAS, but I dont think as a media player it will offer HDR and possibly 4K @ 60hz playback. 4K @ 30hz should be fine.

Capable hardware, but the software setup isn't really something for an average person, especially if wanting it seamless.

No, but just get a cheap DisplayPort to HDMI converter. Might need a more expensive one for 4K, wouldn't like to say that'll definitely work.

I didn't say it did, I said for the 'average person' although if you really want Now TV just get a £30 4k Ruku

Will it output to HDMI in 4k?
are they even gigabit network?
No smooth 4K playback on this generation of CPU's without an additional GPU with is pretty much a no go on USFF PC's. Only Intel Gen 7 CPU's support HDR10 @ 4K without the need of GPU assistance.

Yes but the experience will be terrible.
I use one of these as a plex server. Works a treat. For the £45 here gonna try one as a steam link and Xbone Streamer for the bedroom. Already got a wireless xbox pad and dongle and wired ethernet throughout. Very interested to see if it works.

So you telling me the average person can't open i.e Edge browser and create i.e Netflix, Prime Video, Now TV bookmark.

You're quite behind, or outdated. You can buy USB wireless/BT controllers.

Even if the average person can, which I'm not sure about, your first post recommended it for anyone, not just the average person, Buying and fitting an SSD for acceptable speed, buying a wireless mouse/keyboard, and using that to open and go between services, is going to be nowhere near as slick as buying and using a Roku 4K stick (or Fire TV).

If someone needed all services, then buy the other stick too - having one other device for the extra service is still going to be a far better experience, and cost around the same as this PC, an SSD, and a wireless mouse/keyboard combination - and it'll have proper 4K and HDR decoding support.

I have a cheap £2 or so adapter I got from eBay for a similar mini PC (HP), but I haven't yet got the system up and running, besides video, so can't tell you the sound works properly (although I imagine it should).

You'll also need an audio source (such as 3.5mm using the headphone jack) as this solution wont carry an audio signal

Does DisplayPort also support audio?
Yes, DisplayPort supports multi-channel audio and many advanced audio features. DisplayPort to HDMI adapters also include the ability to support HDMI audio.

I have the M92p which is similar and it's been my media centre for the past year hooked up to the TV via DisplayPort
anyone want a £10 off code?
Is this using a Haswell CPU as I have a spare knocking about I think it's a 4690k I doubt if that small HSF would be upto the job of cooling it though.

My first post recommends this to anyone who is looking for a device that plays everything. There are people out there who want a one device that plays everything. 90% of the population own a PC, so the average user will be able to use this as a media device.

Sorry I've not tried any 4K content on it. I've done two 1080p streams at the same time to two different devices and it worked without an issue.

Just found this. Some people are struggling with six core i7's for 4K content.
