5 out of 5 eggsDecent computer for the price

Pros: - inexpensive
- small footprint
- adequately fast enough for web surfing, email, typing projects, simple card games like solitaire, etc.
- VGA out
-HDMI out
- 1 DB9 COMM port
- 10/100 NIC port
- 3 audio 3.5mm ports back (line-in, line-out & mic
+ 2 on front headphones and mic.,
- 4 USB 2.0 ports on back + 2 on front = 6 USB ports total.

Cons: - max of 4GB RAM (using two SO-DIMMs, 2GB each)

- one PCI slot is only expansion. The slot is limited to
accepting only a card that takes up just a single PCI card width. (if a fan and/or a heatsink or a port connector sticks out too far, it won't fit). An extra USB 2.0 4-port card would go in easily. A 64MB or 128MB video card with a large heatsink/fan probably will not).

- No built-in card reader
(NOTE: a different model foxconn barebones of the same size that I bought a year or two earlier has built-in card reader. It is truly great for putting a different OS onto a 16 or 32GB SDHC card and running right from that SDHC card. It can be a full OS or one of those "LIVE OS" like Knoppix or Backtrack)

- installing internal parts is a progressive process.
(not like a desktop PC where you pop a side panel and have direct access to everything).
First you remove top cover screw from back & remove top cover. Second you have to unsnap plastic clips of front panel and remove panel. Wires to LEDs on front panel will only allow front panel to pull away a few inches from chassis; but plenty room to work on unit. Third you remove 2 screws from front panel and the front panel can move about 1/2 inch and pull up out of it's "L shaped" slide-track notch.
Fourth now you have access to installing SO-DIMMs on the mobo with nothing in the way. You can install a hard drive. You can install a DVD burner/reader Fifth the reassembly is a simple reverse of the first 4 steps.

Other Thoughts: I would consider your intended usage for this type of PC before buying it.
It is by no means "perfect" as noted by other reviewers.
It has it's limitations.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Low price.
Low wattage.
Runs CentOS 6 Linux.

Cons: Noisy power supply fan.
The difficult to remove front plastic, which has to come off to get to the internal 3.5" mount point, broke after a few dis- and re-assemblies at one of the tabs holding it in place.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent little computer

Pros: This is a very cheap and fairly small unit. I appreciate that the CPU heatsink does not have a fan, but is just adjacent to the case fan. I had wanted a "fanless" computer, but this is getting close.
I had no issues installing Ubuntu 12.04 on it, with the provided BIOS (don't know its version).
One oddity was that when I first booted, I had the only disk drive plugged into the 2nd SATA port on the Motherboard and it gave no signs of life. But a reviewer had mentioned that he got same results with single stick of RAM in the "wrong" slot, so I tried the other SATA port and it booted right up.
Case fan is fairly quiet. You *can* hear it, but it's pretty good.
Power supply (150W, I think) has plenty of connectors for three drives but I'm only using the one.

Cons: Case is not super-easy to disassemble (requires screwdriver). Blue power LED is very bright--I will be dimming this before I move it to my bedroom.
The other negatives I could mention are all what you should expect from reading the product specs--it's limited on processing and memory power--whaddya want for $110?
First boot after switching between HDMI and VGA does not result in video output, but rebooting seems to fix this. I'm assuming a BIOS update would improve, but am not going to bother, since it will end up "headless".

Other Thoughts: I purchased this to be the new file (etc) server for my home, and it seems very up to the task. In addition to running Samba, it's also got a Minecraft server running on it (by far the biggest CPU hog running on there now).

1 out of 5 eggsReceived DOA

Pros: None

Cons: Received DOA. Submitted to Newegg for refund. I would recommend that Foxconn steps up their quality control for the own branded products to match those of the other products they manufacture (Apple, Dell, etc.).

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Drivers

Pros: Small.

Cons: Video drivers are non-existent.
Windows XP install = BSOD.
Windows Vista x86 = Standard VGA. Will not install drivers on disk.
Windows Vista x64 = Standard VGA. No 84 bit drivers.
Ubuntu 12.04 = No Drivers
Last resort, tried MeeGo. Nope. Black Screen after install and boot.

There are no Intel GMA 3600 drivers that work with this system.

Other Thoughts: Driver disk provided by Foxconn is mostly useless. Foxconn website contains the same drivers on the disk.

Stay away from this item. I'm requesting a RMA.


Manufacturer Response:

We apologize for the inconvenience. We only have drivers for Win7 32bit.

Best regards,
Foxconn support team.

4 out of 5 eggsUpdate to previous revie

Pros: Update to previous review.
I guess I am a bit spoiled by GUI's so I tried a few more Linux distro's before migrating data and found the latest production Ubuntu, Version 12.04 32 bit, installs with no issues on the D2500 system with latest bios.

Cons: None.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent quality, chipset support for non windows OS poor

Pros: Well built, no issues at all with hardware.

Cons: Came with bios V1 and the only thing I found that would boot is windows install.
You can't get any video out to boot a dos usb stick or CD to upgrade the bios, or install another OS.
I installed windows, used it to upgrade bios to 2, then 4, then modified 4 to install 5, then used dos usb stick to install 6 then 7.
Even with latest bios dos equivalent and server video support is very poor.
I could have shoehorned a modified linux on, but for the services I wanted a non-gui freebsd install was easier to install.

Other Thoughts: Note, these are Intel chipset issues not Foxconn issues so only dinged it 1 star.
For the next generation after this Intel announced it will be even more Linux hostile, so it's AMD for me for small low power servers.
