The first thing I noticed when I got my hands on the Brix was this box was deceptively heavy. I mean it really feels like they just put a brick inside. The box itself though is all black and on the front they have a nice photo of the red Brix. Up top you have a small Gigabyte logo but the main focus is on the photo and on the large gold Gigabyte Brix logo. They slipped a small AMD A8 logo in as well. It’s weird they would include Gigabyte in the name as well as put their logo on it, but oh well. Around on the back we have a little more information. Here we have multiple photos of the Brix, basically from every angle including inside. They have a few features highlighted and they also list the parts you will need to finish building the kit as well. To me this is the most important thing to see, it would suck to get home only to find out that you need RAM and an SSD still. As for the specific model information, all of that along with a short part breakdown is on the sticker up on top of the box.

Inside the Brix is right up on top but it is wrapped it a padded bag and then sitting in a cardboard cutout as well. Up under the Brix we do have all of the included accessories and documentation. The power supply is split up into two parts and each has its own door under the Brix. Beyond that you get a VESA TV mount as well as screws for both the VESA mount as well as the 2.5 inch drive bay. You get a CD with all of the drivers on it as well as a small quick start guide to walk you through getting the Brix up and running.

Wow, this little guy ain't bad :) I'm running 16GB of Corsair Value Ram(1333) and a 750GB WD Black 2.5"(7200rpm). So far so good. Windows 10 Pro 64 is running smooth as glass and I set it up for lightweight Steam gaming. I'm loving it :) Thanks for the review, it convinced me to try it out :)
