3 out of 5 eggsNice at first

Pros: Great size, features, low noise level for the price. Makes a decent low end HTPC.

Cons: Does not consistently play HD content from a HomeRun Price tuner. Some channels fine, others not.

After 1.5 years, fan starting emitting terrible sound. Bad bearing perhaps. Now, when turning on tv, often the screen is multicolored and unusable. Have to play with resolution for about 5 minutes for it to get back to usable state. Sometimes, it is just a static "snow" screen and I have to reboot.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I got a good year out of the unit. Was it worth the price? No. Would have rather just put money into something that would have lasted at least 2-3 years and played HD video consistently.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great for me.

Pros: Great price, very capable little machine. Fits in a small space.

Cons: Had to fiddle with drivers in Ubuntu. A lot. Also the USB3 slots still give USB2.0 speeds, but that's probably just because I got sick and tired of fiddling with the dang ol' drivers.

Other Thoughts: I've been using this little beauty to run a full server for the past 8 months or so. It does conversion on the fly for all my 720p videos for Plex with no problem, abut 60% usage. Runs at a consistent 60deg Celsius but it doesn't appear to affect the performance at all. Right now running on a 64GB SSD and it boots in under 10 seconds to Ubuntu 12.04 Server. I have 4GB of RAM in there which is frankly completely unnecessary as it never breaks 1GB. I have 4 different external hard drives plugged into it and it doesn't have a problem at all. GB LAN speeds at 40-60MBps.

All in all pleased with the purchase

4 out of 5 eggsweak wireless, not bad otherwise

Pros: It will play 'HD' netflix movies on a 21" monitor @ via DVI, but it cannot do the same via HDMI to an HD TV without stuttering. Need to reduce the screen resolution then it works reasonably ok (but some detail is lost). Pretty good as normal activities such as serving the web, etc. Renders complex pages quickly. Can handle one HD IP camera with audio at full frame rate at about 60% cpu . Can handle two IP cameras at full resolution but just barely. Others have reported the box gets excessively hot but I'm not experiencing that at all. It appears to be designed to be mounted vertically so there is an airflow from the bottom of the case towards the top. It runs warm but nowhere near 'hot'. The small size of the box and the very low power requirements are great; we have it on a 30" deep kitchen counter behind a 21" monitor without any problem. All of the coiled-up wires from the monitor, etc. take up more space than the computer itself. Overall, I wish it had a little more horsepower but otherwise not bad.

Cons: The wireless is unreliable for the 'n' speed but reliable for 'g' speed. The 'n' speed drops off occasionally even when the router is 20 feet away and on the same floor.

Other Thoughts: Using Windows Vista 64 bit

1 out of 5 eggsPOST Problems & Cheap Construction

Pros: Cheap, Small, Decent Hardware

Cons: Only posted on 1 out of 10 boot attempts
Only 1 Memory Slot
Cheap Construction

Other Thoughts: The price is similar to other competing products, but this product is more cheaply constructed (cheap plastic). My biggest problem was that it didn't POST or bootup correctly. The power light was lit, but there was no monitor or keyboard (num lock light) response most of the time when I tried to boot it up.

When it booted, it appeared to work fine, but it would hang like this even on a "restart" instead of a "shutdown".

Manufacturer Response:

Please try with a different RAM stick. Also refer to the link below for memory compatibility list.

2 out of 5 eggsUndecided, I like it.. BUT..

Pros: Size. Smaller than the Novel War and Peace.
Cost. Dual Core, Full 1080 HDMI output, USB 3 support for less than $200? No brainer.

Cons: Numerous. Heat. This thing gets very warm. Could use a bit more vents cut into the case to help it breath a bit better.

Linux/Ubuntu/Xbmc/Xbmcbuntu support is not ready for primetime. Could not load openELEC at all. Loaded Xbmcbunu and I kept getting freezes and lockups and it would sleep and not wake up, So then I installed ubuntu with xbmc on top of it, same problems, finally was forced to just install win7 and load xbmc on top of that. It works, but..
Xbmc still locks up from time to time. Not had any problem with win7 locking up though, just the xbmc.
Looks great and love the features of xbmc though. This may possibly be a heat buildup thing though, will keep tweaking it, and possible remove the top to the box and see if that makes the problem go away and if it does, break out the dremel and start cutting a few vents on the top.

Wifi is weak, I mean, very weak. I've got 40 mb download cable with a ubee n wireless router and I can barely get over 5 mbs of download speed on it, while my laptop, with a weak connection 12 feet further away is downloading at 18 mbs. I check my router interface and saw the connection type and the speeds and its showing this device connecting with G and Not N and only at 1000 kbs, while my phones, connecting at 18000 and numerous other devices showing high numbers this one still showing poor throughput, I checked the support site, No newer wifi drivers exist as of yet, Not sure if the unit is defective or I have a driver issue or what. I contacted support today and hopefully their will be some kind of workaround or fix. On a lark, I had an old usb 2 wireless G adapter that I threw on there and I was able to get 12 mbs of download speed with it and am using that for now. I will update this review once I find out what's going on. WEI numbers on this thing are pretty weak, with the CPU being a big bottleneck, although I ran some older games on it, like Open Gl Quake and got FPS around the 200 mark, not checked it with any steam titles yet. Also the foxconn support number listed here is no longer in service.

Other Thoughts: I really want to like this thing. But so far, it's been a pain, hopefully I can work out the kinks and when I do, I'll try to share them, if anyone has had similar issues and found fixes for them, please post them up here.

Manufacturer Response:

We are using Intel Centrino Wireless N-1000. Please refer to the link below from Intel.

4 out of 5 eggsHotter than Hell

Pros: This thing is TINY! I am using it as a HTPC in my living room and you can barely notice it setting under the TV. Great audio/video for a device that is so small.

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate x64, 4gb of RAM. Every thing runs smoothly.

Cons: Only things that run slow are Youtube and Windows Update. As others have said, this thing runs HOT! From running Speedfan, I got temps of over 80 degrees Celsius just by installing updates from Windows Update.

Other Thoughts: I decided to cut slots into the top of the case above the APU fan for ventilation with a Dremel and dropped temps down to 40- 60 degrees Celsius.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for XBMC

Pros: Great, compact machine for XBMC. Will play videos in 1080p and 720p. I couldn't get the latest XBMCbuntu 12 RC3 to work, as the video was choppy. However, I had an old copy of xbmc-10.0-live-amd.iso which worked great.

Cons: Had to buy a remote and memory separately, but really it's not a big deal.

4 out of 5 eggsdecent for light use

Pros: size
easy to install RAM & hard drive

Cons: documentation
drivers on mini-cd, need a tray loading drive to access
lacks bluetooth

Other Thoughts: What I did:
Installed 60GB SATA III SSD & 8GB 1333 DDR3 (although Newegg states 4GB max, Foxconnchannel states 8GB, both agree 1066 but 1333 works fine)
Updated BIOS from P08 to P10 (download from Foxconnsupport) with FreeDOS on USB flash drive
In BIOS advanced tab, disabled Deep Sleep and set HD to IDE
Installed Win7 64 from USB flash drive
Installed Chipset driver (download from Foxconnsupport, although included CD seems to have the same version)
Installed Intel WiFi driver (download from Foxconnsupport, although included CD seems to have the same version)
Ran Win update (several times)
I then found a newer Intel WiFi driver (uses Intel WiFi Link 1000) from Intel download site and installed that

3 out of 5 eggsLinux? Forget it.

Pros: Small
Light
Powerful...for it's size
HDMI & DVI connector

Cons: Linux? Forget it. (see below)
Runs a bit hot
Wireless card isn't the strongest

Other Thoughts: If you're not thinking of putting Linux on it then you need not bother reading past this.

Basically, it's a neat, extremely small little box BUT...if you're planning on putting some flavor of Linux on it, beware.

The problems?

1) Wireless card drivers are junk. Don't expect to get acceptable speeds with the current, out of the box drivers for Linux.

2) I had the lastest BIOS from their site installed and I noticed it had problems booting and rebooting. First off, you wouldn't see the BIOS screen and I had it set to show it (quiet off). It looked like it would reboot several times before getting to the OS (Linux Mint, in this case). Sometimes you would get a blank screen but the monitor had it's back-light on. Hibernation wouldn't work.

I thought it was the memory and ran memtest from the grub loader. Errors AHOY! OK, that's it, bad memory. Took the memory back and got a different brand. Ran memtest and the same result occurred. I phone their support number and talked to a tech who suggested running it from a bootable CD or USB stick. He was right, it passed the test. But why would memtest from the grub loader fail?!?! That was my first indication of BIOS problems.

(BTW, he said it wouldn't void your warranty to remove the heat sink and apply your own thermal paste. I plan on doing that in the future.)

It would seem that the BIOS' DSDT is faulty for Linux. This isn't the first time that Foxconn has done this either:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=869249

Bear in mind that that article is from 2008 but after extensive testing I can tell you nothing has changed. I pulled the DSHT, decompiled it, had a look at what was going in it then, without changing anything, tried to recompiled it and it wouldn't recompile. 11 errors, most of them stupid. I fixed them with the help of the web and recompiled. This time it was fine. Rebooted into Linux (Mint 12.4) and got the same stuff happening. So back to the drawing board. I made some changes according to suggestions made in the article above and tried again. Some things were improved and some weren't. Sleep via the button would now put you in a constant sleep/wake-up cycle.

Anyway, I decided to try Win 7 on the little box and guess what? It works perfectly. Hibernation, sleep, everything works as it should. Not to sound cynical but I wonder how much Redmond sends to foxconn every month to make sure that new Linux users walk away thinking the OS is garbage because of bad DSDTs?

Still, because it does work well with Windows and is quite powerful for its size I can't give it less than 3 eggs.

Come on Foxconn, Linux is an up and coming OS and you'd better start following ACPI standards in your BIOS or you're going to lose a portion of your business. I know I won't buy Foxconn again because of this even though I'm pretty impressed with what you wrought with this little mighty mouse of a box.
