Mini PC’s have become very popular since they are very small, low cost, and run the familiar Windows 10 interface.
They make for perfect media centers to run Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Kodi or most anything a regular laptop or desktop can do.
While they can be used as a standard computer most use them to stream content to a TV and have hours of streaming possibilities.
It is also a fan-less unit which means it runs silent with the case setup to dissipate heat.
This unit sent to us to review with our honest opinion and results below.

Byte3 Fanless Win 10 Pro Mini PC – Intel N3450 Quad-core, 1.10GHz (up to 2.20 GHz) 4GB RAM+32GB eMMC/2.5” SSD M.2 Supported)
The Azulle Byte3 is a good low cost Windows 10 mini PC that makes for a good media center.
It will have no problems streaming videos online with Netflix, Kodi, Hulu, YouTube or from home media files.
It is comparable to a low end laptop with less cost since there is no need for a screen or other peripherals laptops need.
A few downsides is it struggles to play the new 4K Ultra HD videos and can heat up when tasking it such as during game play.
Overall for the price range, it is a good unit and will no doubt be a good fit in many home entertainment systems.
I am still testing the unit and will update if anything changes.
As always be sure to read the reviews on Amazon, forums, or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.
