With the LIVA Z3 Plus, ECS looks to push the boundaries of what you can expect from its lineup of ultra-small form factor systems. Highly efficient, semi-upgradeable, and with enough I/O to fit most needs, it is quite a compelling system with support for Amazon Alexa, but it needs a few upgrades to truly shine.
