HUNSN BM34 is an Intel N100 device with excellent expandability
We have previously reported on a plethora of fanless mini PCs powered by Intel N100. Yet today, citing sources from CNX Software, FanlessTech, and Liliputing, we present the HUNSN BM34, which potentially stands out amongst its Intel N100 peers for its exceptional expandability—its plethora of I/O interfaces is indeed noteworthy.
Upon its facade, apart from the switch, the eight USB Type-A ports are conspicuously prominent. However, it merits attention that only the two furthest to the left adhere to the USB 3.0 standard, boasting a speed of 5Gbps; the remaining six are USB 2.0 interfaces, with a rate of 480Mbps. Solely considering the number of USB 2.0 ports, users would scarcely harbor apprehensions about potential peripheral connection constraints.
The rear of the HUNSN BM34 lacks USB interfaces. Instead, it boasts three video output ports: two HDMI 2.0 and one DP, facilitating a maximum tri-screen output. Additionally, it possesses a dual-network port configuration, much to the delight of software routing enthusiasts, with a gigabit speed. The mini PC also supports WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 4.2. Furthermore, the rear is equipped with microphone and speaker jacks, as well as a 12V3A round-hole DC socket.
Internally, the HUNSN BM34 offers impressive expandability: it features a single SODIMM slot, supporting up to 16GB DDR4 3200 memory; an mSATA slot; an M.2 2280 slot compatible with NVMe SSDs; and a slot for a 2.5-inch hard drive.
To facilitate heat dissipation, the device employs an all-aluminum chassis design. It weighs approximately 1 kilogram and measures 170 x 125 x 50mm. From the provided imagery, one can discern that its chassis slightly outstrips the motherboard in length.
Regarding pricing, the HUNSN BM34 barebones unit retails at $199.99. The base model, pre-loaded with 8GB RAM and a 128GB SSD, is priced at $236.99. Mirroring other mini PCs, users have the prerogative to customize memory and storage configurations on the product’s detail page.
