ECS LIVA Z Small Form Factor PC Review

I am still puzzled by the choice of layout after staring at it for these past few weeks. Having two Gigabit Ethernet ports on the back without any USB ports is a questionable decision from a real estate standpoint. During my time with this unit, between a USB flash drive, mouse, keyboard, Ethernet, and HDMI cable, my desk was a mess with cables going every direction. Some of that could be remedied with a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse and also using Wi-Fi. It seems from my perspective that this is exactly what ECS expects customers to do, and skip the messy cables. Just be aware that if you intend to go full on cables like I did, it will never look clean. Going back full circle, I wish ECS removed the second Ethernet jack and placed 2 USB ports in its’ place. I just cannot think of a scenario in which both jacks would be used besides a strange file server… at OverclockersClub
