Thanks for the review. I've been using the CI320 for a while as a browser based streaming box. I'm quite happy with the draw from the wall, but the streaming performance has been a little hit/miss under Win7. Takes a while to buffer up compared to my desktop. Don't know if it's due to the Baytrail CPU, having only 1 slot of RAM, or something else. So, paying a bit more for the CI321's dual channel RAM, a Haswell CPU with known good video capability (as well as audio bit streaming) with similar power use for streaming, would be the better way to go.
