We have taken a slightly different approach with this review and have introduced the package on video.
As far as the overall package goes, there is nothing too exciting. However, you do have everything included that you will need to get the show on the road. The addition of the anti-slip pad by ASRock is a good idea and extra points must be added on for the added thought. It also works very well and the system does not move an inch with it applied.
On the included CD ASRock includes an electronic copy of the manual, as well as drivers, Acrobat Reader and Norton Internet Security, which we did not install as it's shocking and chews system resources like mad. What we did like was the inclusion of ASRock's OC Tuner software, which allows you to overclock the ION 330 in Windows.
This nettop also support ASRock's clever Instant Boot feature that allows the system to boot up in four seconds according to the makers, as long as the AC power remains connected to the system. The system enters a type of power saving mode, it doesn't fully turn off, but uses very little power. You can watch a video of exactly how it works below.
Lovely inclusion, especially for a device of this kind where you don't want to be waiting around forever for the system to boot up to watch a movie.
