If you are considering picking up a mini-PC like the ECS LIVA Z, you should read this review at Overclockers Club before spending your hard earned money.
I am still puzzled by the choice of layout after staring at it for these past few weeks. Having two Gigabit Ethernet ports on the back without any USB ports is a questionable decision from a real estate standpoint. During my time with this unit, between a USB flash drive, mouse, keyboard, Ethernet, and HDMI cable, my desk was a mess with cables going every direction. Some of that could be remedied with a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse and also using Wi-Fi. It seems from my perspective that this is exactly what ECS expects customers to do, and skip the messy cables.
