As you can see the RGB LEDs on the unit itself are quite well diffused and the unit looks great. I would think one perfect use for the RGB header on the device would be to power a series of RGB strips on the rear of your TV or monitor so that the light reflects off the wall behind it.

BIOSTAR's Racing P1 is much different than many of the other contenders on the list, but also similar to a few. It uses an Intel Atom X5 processor, which is in the same league as Intel's latest Compute Stick and devices such as ECS's LIVA X and ASRock's BeeBox N3000.
Performance compared to these devices is strong, but it doesn't stand up to competitors such as the NUC. However, it also doesn't have active cooling, so there is zero noise, and thus we get into the whole power versus performance argument, where the BIOSTAR Racing P1 will dominate with its low power usage.
Storage and Network Performance
ixChariot Network Throughput:
The Wireless AC controller in the RACING P1 isn't spectacular, but you also can't expect too much from a 1T1R antenna configuration. The good news is that it does have enough throughput for streaming, and there is a wired LAN port.
Storage speeds are on the slow side, but the same is true for other devices that use eMMC flash storage, it's small yet a bit on the slow side.
