Can Intel Stick run 24/7 for indefinite period of time? Or maybe how long it is expected to work like this?

I want to use the intel stick to run my screen with videos 24/7. I was thinking of how long it is estimated to work in this type of usage? 1 year, 2 years?

A question where I would like to know the answer for too.

I have been running my compute stick for over a month and so far, everything still looks fine. But I have heard from others that if the "environment" is not well ventilated, the compute stick will get unstable. As I am running in a normal office environment, mine works well up to this point.

Hi All,

Our products are always built with high quality components so the Intel Compute Stick should work just great for an indefinite period of time but I will check internally with development what is the Lifespan of this component.

I will be back soon with more information.

Hi Andrejus,

MTBF (Mean time between failures is 46,855 hours (~5.3 years).

I hope this helps,
