ECS mostly known for its PC motherboard business, but the company also expanded into barebones and mini PCs. One of the newest line of all-in-one mini PCs launched by ECS is the Liva, which targets the multimedia streaming and digital signage sectors. The latest addition to this line is the Liva Q that comes in one of the smallest enclosures on the market, measuring 2.75 x 2.75 x 1.18 in and weighing 9.1 oz.

The Liva Q can be powered by either a quad-core Pentium N4200 or a dual-core Celeron N3350 from the Apollo Lake family of ULV SoCs. Since the enclosure is so small, it can only accommodate 2 or 4 GB of single channel LPDDR4 RAM, and the storage is limited to 64 or 32 GB of eMMC. However, ECS equipped the Liva Q with all the necessary connectivity features. The front of the device integrates one USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A and one USB 2.0 Type-Aports, while the right side gets a microSD reader that supports cards up to 128 GB.

Support for the streaming aspect comes in the form of a HDMI 2.0 port that is HDCP 2.2 compliant. There is also the HDMI-CEC feature, which allows the use of on/off triggers directly through the HDMI port. The networking part is handled by a Gigabit LAN NIC that comes with a rear connector, plus there is support for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1. There is no operating system pre-installed, but ECS mentions that the mini PC supports Windows 10 as well as Linux Ubuntu.

For the time being, ECS has not released any information about availability and pricing.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
