MSI Cubi Review – Conclusion

Starting with the build quality and design of the MSI Cubi we have no concerns. The system feels solid, is finished well and has a decent port layout. Access to the inside for upgrading components is very easy, just four screws, and we really like that MSI have supplied that alternate base which allows us to add some extra storage if needed, or keep our system as compact as possible.

Component choice is decent. Samsung memory is always good to see, though we would have preferred 2x4gb as the base option, and Intels Wi-Fi cards never let us down. As far tas the SSD goes, Transcend is ok, though there are brands out there that offer improved write speeds.Speaking of performance, overall the system gave us results exactly at the level we would expect. There is no loss of performance between this and a full size desktop with the same components. USB read speed was good, write could have been a little better but SATA was spot on, right at the limits of the high end drive. Network performance was also good with HD video streaming without issue. We outputted to a 4K screen via the mini-DisplayPort during our testing without issue and the system was capable of playing mainstream games at 1280×720 resolution (the same as Xbox 360) at medium/high detail.

As far as pricing goes, the Cubi will vary depending on the specification chosen however from initial listings it appears to be competitively priced at each level and that mixed with the good design and flexibility wins it our recommended award.

    Does the Cubi support Self-Encrypting Drives?

    That was a great review, well done. I am looking for a solution to run the Kodi media center software. I only need to output to my 50″ plasma at 1920×1080. I will be attaching a 2.5″ portable USB 3.0 drive as the source. Will this Cubi be a good solution? Thank you for your time 🙂
