    Top of the Box

    Front of the box

    Is the microphone,Type C USB,2x USB 3 Ports,Micro SD Slot,Power LED & the power Button

    Left and right sides

    Is some Vent's (I like vents)

    Rear of the box

    You can find the Reset button,kingston locking hole,Power port,VGA,HDMI,LAN,2x USB2 & the 3.5MM headphone jack

    Under side

    4 Rubber feet,SATA slot

    Inside the SATA slot

    Plenty of room for a SSD or a Hard drive

    The S1 is a all plastic square box with venterlation holes on the both side and the bottom, It has a extra large aluminum heatsink so big it almost covers the whole of the PCB, Giving it a good chance to keep the unit cool and i can say it works very well indeed with all my tests the device just dont get hot.

    Now lets boot the S1 up see how it runs,

    On the first boot of the S1 Took me to the windows setup, language product key etc etc (No need to enter a windows key here) just skip it for now then you will find it gets fully activated after the setup is compleat.I then got notified that there was a windows update (4GB) so i let that run, That Took over 2.5 hours to update and now i have the latest Windows Version 1703 Build 15063.413.

    The S1 is now showing around 40GB of free space in windows after all the latest updates.

    The boot time on the S1 is around 23 seconds & that takes you straight to the main windows screen where your ready to go.

    One of the first things i wanted to test was the inbuilt microphone,That does work well in a silent room but if you have the tv on it dont work that well it also dont work too good once its mounted to the back of the TV.

    What works

    64GB & 128GB sd works
    128GB USB Stick
    Samsung 1TB unpowered HD works
    Tronsmart Mars G01 Gamepad works
    Logitech c270 webcam works
    Wd 320GB hard drive works

    Im still waiting for my M.2 ssd to arrive so cant test that right now

    Some tech stuff


    CPU Z

    Crystal disc

    Aida 64 cach and memory benchmark

    Aida64 gpid

    Aida64 gpu benchmark

    Aida64 stability test

    Device manager

    Some Internal Photos

    I feel that there are only 2 things i would of liked to have seen on the S1 The first being a external Antenna (I feel a mod coming on)and the 2nd it would of been nice to be able to use Type C port as another display out as at the moment the type C port only seems it can be used for data transfer.

    I also dont see the point of the kingston locking hole on a plastic box that Could easy be broken
