5 out of 5 eggsGreat HTPC!

Pros: Attractive exterior with flexible mounting options (vertical with stand, horizontal with magnetic feet, VESA attachment)
Quiet and low power
* Great price
* Well-supported under Linux
* Broadcom Crystal HD video acceleration
* Reliable wifi (RTL8191SE)
* HDMI

Cons: * HDMI resolution only goes up to 1366x768 rather than 1920x1080 (which is supported by VGA-out)
* 2gb maximum RAM

Other Thoughts: I've been using this as a HTPC/fileserver for over 2 years, currently running Ubuntu Quantal. It handles everything I've thrown at it. Although the CPU performance is underwhelming, the Broadcom Crystal HD decoder works wonderfully with VLC to decode 1080p video with <10% CPU usage.

My only quibbles are with the 2gb RAM limit (bogs down when I open too many tabs in Chrome) and the fact that the HDMI-out resolution is less than 1080p (which is what the Intel GMA GPU is capable of). If you really need 1080p out, use the VGA out instead.

I'd happily buy another!

4 out of 5 eggsMostly Linux compatible

Pros: Very small form factor, about the size of a paperback book, comes with a mount that attaches to the back of a monitor so it's completely out of the way.
The CPU performance is decent for a low end nettop. It's fine for basic tasks like e-mail and web browsing. It's a little jerky playing videos but it's not terrible, however I wouldn't recommend it for a MythTV box, spend a little more and get an Nvidia ION or AMD based nettop.

Cons: Intel 3150 graphics chip. The 3150 is limited to 1366x768 which is OK for a netbook but not for a nettop which uses an external monitor. No amount of playing with Xorg.conf would fix this limitation, it appears to be a hard limit.

Realtek wireless chip lacks a kernel driver although there is a Linux driver available. The driver isn't in the 2.6.35 or upcoming 2.6.36 kernels. I don't know the reason that it's not in the kernel, It could be that it's a lousy driver that doesn't meet kernel standards or that there is some binary piece to it that violates the GPL.

The Atom processor lacks virtualizaition support so you can't use KVM.

Other Thoughts: Make sure that you use an HDMI cable not a VGA cable, it will make the job of installing the OS much easier and the video quality is also much better.
I set up my system with a 2G DIMM and a 320G drive.

I've installed four distros on it,

Fedora 13 (64 bit) installed easily with an HDMI cable but was really painful to install with a VGA cable. The wireless chip is unsupported in Fedora due to the lack of a kernel driver, everything else works.

Fedora 14 (64 bit) has a work around that made it easier to install with a VGA cable, with the HDMI cable the workaround wasn't necessary. As with 13 everything works except the wireless.

Ubuntu 10.10 (64 bit) includes the driver for the Realtek wireless chip so everything works right out of the box. Performance of Ubuntu and Fedora are pretty much identical.

Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook (32 bit). Everything works but I don't recommend. It's no faster than stock Ubuntu and the user interface is awful.

4 out of 5 eggsSeems to favor HDMI connection

Pros: +Good HTPC solution that is cheap, small, and quiet!

+Beautiful, small, and very functional package. Very well engineered and high quality. Optional VESA mount or table-top stand is a great feature.

+No useless door over ports on the front of the unit like other Nettops, allows putting IR receivers where they will work best... on the front!

+Broadcom CrystalHD chip improves HD performance. Works great with Win7 64-bit Enterprise edition running as HTPC, with some caveats.

+Win7 installation was easy. I had a wired Ethernet connection and the only item I had to install manually was the CrystalHD driver from Broadcom's website. I did not use anything from the included CD.

+Streams HD video via Netflix. Plays HD recordings via other Win7 MCE computer. Records HD digital cable through a Diamond/ATI 750HD USB tuner.

Cons: -Only 720p (or 768) resolution over the HDMI port. I knew this when I bought it but would like to have had more in my budget for an ION graphics unit to get 1080p.

-Using the VGA port will cause stuttering during HD playback.

-I must stop the HD playback before selecting the Win7 Media Center menu or the unit becomes very sluggish. Just have to press the stop or pause button on the playback.

-For Win7 64-bit, I would really like to have more that just 2GB RAM available. Just Win7 with anti-virus alone takes up 700-900MB. Adding Media Center playing HD video leaves only 400MB or so.

Other Thoughts: =I got this for a friend to make use of her dead laptop's hard drive and memory. I could not justify the extra money for the ION video and this product seemed to have better reviews compared to the ION-based units. (Newegg put the D330/ION version on sale two days later for $10 cheaper plus free shipping. Oh well.)

=For HD viewing, do not use the VGA port. It seems that you must use the HDMI output to make use of the CrystalHD chipset. Watching 1080p recorded video was stuttered badly via VGA but was very smooth over HDMI.

=Have not tried analog recording with the USB tuner as Win7 64-bit always gives me "low bit rate error" on all of my other PCIe/PCI tuners (Hauppauge, ATI, , even after installing the Microsoft patches to fix the problem.

=I have not tried any form of Linux on it yet, including the Linux distro it came with.

=In some ways seems more powerful than my old Pentium D805 with 4GB RAM. Performance never seems to be affected by anti-virus or MS updates.

4 out of 5 eggsGood price/performance balance

Pros: --Very small size and very small electric power consumption. This box is ideal for use as a on-all-the-time music or file server, but definitely not as a HTPC...not designed for that purpose, so not a minus.
--Very quiet fan, even during load. Much quieter than some early nettop products. Does not get excessively hot.
--Surprisingly speedy for routine tasks
--Broadcom Crystal HD chip improves video decoding to compensate for poor GMA 3150 performance
--Easy enough, considering small size, to open and install HD and RAM. Remove 4 screws, then use a thin butter knife as mentioned earlier, or putty knife or a plastic spudger; insert and gently rock back and forth to pry a gap open, then use your fingers to gently lift the cover up and off. Foxconn has a video on Youtube showing complete disassembly.
--Built-in WiFi works great, and has two antennae (one internal patch in case, and one external stick
--Even the tiny speaker sounds loud and clear
--VESA mount and vertical stand i

Cons: --No audio over HDMI, at least I couldn't get it to work. The GMA 3150 driver from Intel does not include HDMI audio support; I think it was omitted on purpose to differentiate it from more expensive chips, but I could be wrong. It does have optical SPDIF output, via the same physical jack as the analog audio output, but you'd need a little plastic adapter to convert from TOSLINK to the mini-jack, and Foxconn did not include this $.10 part in the box.
--no 1080i or 1080p resolution, but again, this is a limitation of the GMA 3150 for Atom.

Other Thoughts: --Surprisingly, it does support booting off a SD-card, which is rare, and could be implemented to make this a hard-disk-free netbox.
--Mine came with a NEWER BIOS than Foxconn has on their website, so don't try to install the downloadable version until you check which is newer
--Foxconn's driver website is sometimes slow, but it does work if you try again later.
--Drivers for some components are available newer from the chipmaker or even from Windows Update (Intel GMA3150, Realtek HD Audio, Crystal HD, etc)
--To those who complained about magnets for feet, I actually think this is an ingenious idea. They are soft rubber on the side opposite the magnet, and the box is designed to easily attach the matching optical drive (purchased separately), held on magnetically, or detach it and add the feet, or take off the feet and install the box on back of a monitor. There is no risk of using magnets; after all, we're not using floppy disks any more, and the hard disk is sufficiently isolat

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing!

Pros: This was purchased for a library computer to be used for research and mild internet usage. I wasn't expecting near the performance this thing delivers! It's tiny, very very quiet, even runs Windows 7 with Aero. I looks great mounted to the back of the 24" LCD we got for this. Built in speaker surprised me how good it sounded, especially for system sounds. Dual-core with hyperthreading surprised me too. Odd to see a computer this small show as 4 logical cores in Performance Monitor. 64-bit CPU a plus.

Cons: Magnets for feet?

Other Thoughts: I had no trouble opening the case, installing the RAM and HD.

4 out of 5 eggsNot too bad for home use

Pros: Small and quiet, very good for family normal use as like....checking email, web, skype,msn ,facebook and office programs (word, excel) use.

Cons: Top of the cpu fan a little hot, if the case is metal will good for heat reduce. I think it is the design error.

Other Thoughts: N/A

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect budget HTPC

Pros: Small. Silent. Cheap. Pulled it out of the box, installed Win 7 with drivers, hooked it to the network and was ready to go in about 45 minutes.

Cons: HDMI resolution is set in the bios and maxes out at 1360x768.

Other Thoughts: Hard drive installs in a little caddy. You unscrew the caddy, screw the HD into the caddy, then fasten the caddy back to the motherboard. You need to be very quick on the draw to get into the BIOS.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: I love the Small package, the ability to power it up with DC (19 vdc) and the option to mount on the back of a monitor. It has 6 USB ports, optical audio out, and can be used as a dual monitor out (HDMI and VGA). Additionally, the use laptop components made it an easy choice for me.

Cons: Drivers would not download from Foxcon's website; however, the provided disk have appropriate drivers. Took a little work find/ make appropriate drivers under Linux.
Wish there was a package deal with one of the external DVD drives.

Not grounding Lug. The Audio input acts like it's not buffered, and is susceptible to RF noise and ground currents. After soldering a ground wire to a SMA-RP right angle (to get a solid grounding point), the 60 cycle hum and noise from a nearby AM station went away.

Other Thoughts: My roommate let the "magic" smoke out of his laptop and gave me it for parts, his old memory and hard drive fit and function perfectly.

I tested/ tried XP, 7, Ubuntu, Open SUSE, and Red Hat.
I settled on using a boot loader to select between XP, 7, and Red Hat - Fedora.

I chose to mount on the back of a monitor. Using a USB hub and wireless keyboard and mouse. This has made this a very convenient computer with a small footprint.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little machine

Pros: Tiny, this thing hides behind my 23 inch monitor with cables just fine. The price with 2GBs of RAM was great. Has the CristalHD chip which makes HD videos run pretty smoothly (disabled it and tried tp watched a HD video with the 3150 chip; it was terrible and used twice the amount of CPU power). Hyperthreading dual-core atom processor is plenty powerful enough for everyday tasks. Audio comes through HDMI w/o a problem. Setup was easy except (see cons).

Cons: Fan runs pretty much all the time, not overly loud though. Runs a bit warm. Video limited to 720P. Video doesn't play as smoothly as with a ION setup. Getting the case open was much more difficult than it should be.

Other Thoughts: Great buy if you can get it on sale!
Setup-
Windows 7 Ult.
2GB CORSAIR RAM DDR2 800
250GB 7200RPM Seagate HHD
Mounted to a Samsung 2333HD monitor w/ HDMI

5 out of 5 eggsI like it.

Pros: Compact, energy efficient, good mix of I/O ports for HTPC.
720p is fine for me.
Everything works.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: To the guy who asked about WOL:
Works fine for me under Linux.
The bios setting is found under the 'Advanced' tab.
