Hi guys,

I'd like to recommend anybody who's considering buying a barebone commercial HTPC to have a look at the Sapphire Edge VS8.

Before I invested in the Sapphire Edge VS8 I used to run MP on a Eee box 1012 ION which in the end just became too slow performance wise and load times on the HDD were terrible.

Some basic facts
CPU AMD APU A8 1.6GHz Quad Core
IGPU AMD RadeonTM HD7600G
Barebone comes without RAM so I decided to buy 2x2gig 1333mhz
Barebone comes without HDD/SSD so I decided to buy a cheap Kingston 300 120g SSD.
Barebone comes without OS but I got myself the Windows 8 64 bit

If anybody is interested in this barebone and have any questions, please let me know.

Price here in Sweden was approx 430 USD/330 EUR + cost of OS, RAM, SSD

Hi, are you using Live TV on the VS8? If so, what's the picture quality like.
Thanks.

FYI: I'm using the same APU in my Notebook and all I can say is, it don't have any Problem with live TV. Picture quality is just like on my R9-270x from my main HTPC.
