Pros

A bare­bones unit pro­vides some abil­ity to choose con­fig­u­ra­tion. Thanks to mo­bile parts, noise is al­most non-ex­is­tent. Far more af­ford­able com­pared to a fully grown HTPC. Su­per-small foot­print; can be VESA-mounted to the rear of TVs, or hid­den. Easy to in­stall hard­ware, and to ini­tially set up. Some­times comes with a Win­dows li­cense, de­pen­dent on man­u­fac­turer.

Cons

Far less pow­er­ful than the al­ter­na­tive. 4K stream­ing still de­pen­dent on hard­ware con­fig­u­ra­tion. You tend to get less bang for your buck. It comes with lim­ited built-in stor­age. Less ther­mal ca­pac­ity com­pared to the al­ter­na­tive. Not as much I/O in com­par­i­son with the cus­tom-built op­tion op­po­site.
