Hi Guys,

Hoping you could help me find an ideal solution to my requirements. I need to purchase a PC which will be used for two primary purposes:


1. To play and stream media, and browse through my TV
2. To act as a home media server (via PLEX) to stream all of my other home devices



  • Dimensions: Looking for a SFF / Mini Tower PC (small enough to sit on the shelf of a TV stand (XBOX size ‘ish’)

    CPU: Sufficient to stream movies through our TV and to a couple of PC’s around the house

    HDD: I require a minimum of 2TB internal storage, so require a desktop 3.5 inch drive would be best. I don’t mind having to upgrade a stock drive to a larger one.

    Connectivity Needs: Built in Wi-Fi for home networking and HDMI for connection to TV

I have considered the Packard Bell I-media, but would be very grateful if anyone has any other ideas? As this will not be my primary PC, appearance and top line performance is not a priority. I would just like to get something that is as cheap as possible.

Many thanks in advance,

Daniel
