Tornado on gadgets and modular devices (by the way you read the cover Nexpaq?), We had the opportunity to get your hands on EzeeCube in one of the last fairs in Hong Kong. If the name sounds familiar, you are not mistaken: ourselves we dealt with this device when it was still a project seeking funding on Indiegogo, but the idea has been successful and the users (small lenders) have allowed the team to switch to mass production and, therefore, the direct sale.
For those who do not remember, EzeeCube is a small computer with Freescale i.MX6 (ARM Cortex A9) dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB eMMC memory and hard drive and 2.5-inch 1TB. It has a card slot SDXC, HDMI, S / PDIF, WiFi 802.11n, Bluetooth 3.0, Gigabit Ethernet, a USB 2.0 port and a micro USB OTG. Measuring 14 x 14 x 4.5 cm and weighs 280 grams. His talents, however, also makes it an ideal media hub for the home because it supports 1TB of storage, backup content from terminals Android and iOS and runs on the Linux operating system-based with XBMC.
EzeeCube but it is important because it represents one of the first Mini PC modular trade (like him, only the Acer Aspire REVO Build commemorating the concept). Thanks to the connector EzeeStack, integrated into the top of the system, the media hub can acquire new capabilities and features by simply entering one or more expansion modules. In practice, each module is a stackable EzeeDisk, each disc adds 2GB of extra storage to your system and you can add up to four units for a total of 9 TB. What’s more, there’s also a Blu-ray drive EzeePlay, which can be placed on the Mini PC for watching DVDs and Blu-Ray directly.
Let the price: EzeeCube costs $ 399 (only base unit), to which you can then add the module HDD and the Blu-Ray priced at $ 199 each. However, if you already have clear ideas, you can choose the complete package (base unit and two modules) at a price of $ 849.
