3 out of 5 eggsCheap, but a little underpowered

Pros: Small, quiet and very low power consumption. Works well with Windows 7 x86 32 bit. This little box has 2 USB3 slots on the front and 4 USB2 slots on the back.

Cons: The Foxconn AT-5250 is underpowered for computer games and more complex applications including web apps.

Very fussy when it comes to RAM. I had a stick of Muskin 4 gig1066 memory so I tried using it. Had a hard time getting the machine to start. Once it booted things worked fairly well, but there were some quirks. I switched to a 4 gig stick of Corsair RAM and it works just fine.

Newegg advertising indicated the 5250 came with a DVI video plug, but mine has a VGA plug.

Other Thoughts: If you only need a computer to run low powered applications with unsophisticated graphics, this computer is for you. Should your needs be a little more demanding, look for something else.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Machine

Pros: Small, easy to set up and use, doesn't use much electricity.

Cons: I guess the 4gb limit could be seen as a con, but it's more than enough ram for a system like this.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this to host my minecraft server since my desktop uses far too much electricity to stay on 24-hours. Once the ram got here I had the whole thing set up in minutes. I installed 64-bit mineOS with no problem and have had it for a couple months with no issues. Runs virtually 24/7 with no issues.

1 out of 5 eggsgreat when they work but thats not very often

Pros: none keep your hundred bucks and put it towards a different system

Cons: i purchased 2 of these systems and only one has been issue free.
one was DOA and took 3 weeks to replace.
then the replacement has issues with the hdmi cutting out randomly. swapping hdds ram and updating the drivers had no effect on the issue.

i do not recommend these units to anyone.

5 out of 5 eggsYes it's small!

Pros: this little computer measures in at 7.5"x5.5"x1.5" about the size of a decent hard covered book.so far i'm very impressed with this little tower,i added 4 gigs of ddr3 1600 ram and a cheap samsung SSD and the speed is excellent.after letting it run for a hour running prime 95 the case was warm. yes it will run 1600 speed DDR3.

Cons: i really can't think of any,if anything the bios is sparse no way to tweak anything.

Other Thoughts: i bought this on a whim to use up some spare parts i had,and i'm not upset at all.this will be a nice add on for my desktop or even a small htpc.it won't replace my main tower,but for daily surfing the interweb it is just fine.

windows 7 home premium 32 bit
Samsung 830 256 Gb SSD
GSkill DDR3 1600 4Gb ram

3 out of 5 eggsHot. VERY Hot

Pros: Works as it says

Cons: Hot. Insane hot. I have never touched a PC that felt as hot as this one does. It works, but it is so hot it makes me nervous to leave it running.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer

Thank you for taking the time to feedback to us on your purchase. we highly appreciate all reviews!

Since this is a fanless unit, the aluminum shell is used to dissipate the heat, so the warmth or hotness you felt is perfectly normal and this is designed to be installed in an enclosed place.


Best Regards,

Foxconn Support Team

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well, would buy again

Pros: Runs 10W at idle w/mechanical laptop drive installed, 15W with CPU at full load. No fan. Has WiFi built-in, though that's not obvious until you load the Intel WiFi driver. 32-bit Win 7 installed fine, w/4 gig RAM. Used the unmanaged RAM as a RAM disk for temp stuff.

Cons: BIOS is minimal, for instance, no "what to do after power loss" option. USB stick booting is unreliable -- couldn't boot Win install USB stick, would hang most of the time. Save yourself time and frustration and use a USB drive. Mem stick that came with drivers and manual is dangerous, it's thickness at the sides ruined the two USB ports in my tower... only attempt to read the USB in the foxconn ports, which seem designed to physically accept it. No fans, but there is a speaker in there, and it hisses perceptibly when the unit is powered up. Documentation is sparse.

Other Thoughts: I'll use this as a light-duty web/mail server, NAS host w/TrueCrypted drive attached via USB. No keyboard mouse monitor attached, just gig ethernet, controlled w/TightVNC. For that it'll be great. As a day-to-day PC this is a bit underpowered, especially the graphics side. Annoying that a silent/fanless box like this has such a speaker hiss. You can fix that by disconnecting the SPEAKER cable just to the right of the RAM slot (labeled SPK_L1). The speaker is plugged into a jumper, so you can re-attach it later if desired (I don't need/want a speaker). With the speaker disconnected the box is truly 100% silent.

4 out of 5 eggsNice little box for Grandma

Pros: Small, Nice looking, USB 3.0

Cons: The stand is kind of lame. 4gb RAM limit

Other Thoughts: I put one of these together with 4gb/120gb for my Aunt to replace her old P4. It's not much of an upgrade, but it did speed her up a bit, it only cost $204 out the door (no OS), and it sips power. Much better than that noisy old 300W Dell power supply on the old one.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap, wifi built in, speaker built in, and quiet. Powerful enough to stream videos as well as word processing and simple programming.

Cons: apparently only runs 32bit OSs but haven't tested that.

Other Thoughts: -Need to buy: 2.5" Hard Drive, 204 pin memory, and OS (if using windows).
-Runs 32bit Ubuntu fine.
-Surprised the heck out of me the first time i found out it had a speaker built in.
-Did come with built in wifi. The mini-PCI-E is for you to add to the PC if so desired.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Deal

Pros: This is easy to open up to install the hard drive and memory (or msata if you wish). Quiet and inexpensive.
Got this to replace my old Foxconn Booksize box which had a problem with the power plugin on the motherboard and it kept shutting off. This model is a nice upgrade to my old one. I love the aluminum case and the power button is nice and easy to find...even better it was cheaper. I did have to buy new memory though, it is DDR3 and I only had DDR2. Runs OK, I mean these things are not powerhorses. I am only using it to stream video from a dropcam. I don't know how it would work with other applications. The fanless thing kind of freaked me out at first, but everything runs fine. The only noise I hear from it is the hard drive every now and then (older non-ssd laptop drive).

Cons: Documentation was pretty sparse.

Other Thoughts: Main point I learned...that little USB drive that comes in the box has all the drivers. I thought it was just a nice little item for storage. I went to the Foxconn website to get the drivers, saw the manual with actual information and learned it was on that. Boy did I feel dumb!
I could not get XP to install on this and there are no drivers for it anyways. Had Windows 7 32 bit and all was good.

4 out of 5 eggsSimple box for hacking

Pros: Inexpensive
Compact
Features (sata, usb3, hdmi+vga)
usb3
bootable SD and usb3.

Cons: Memory not included, nor disk
Quirky hardware
SMART info not published by quirky bios

Other Thoughts: I needed a box with a SATA port to run SpinRite and Linux (mainly CLI), so when this was a shell shocker, I grabbed it and a memory (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820313096).
I had to get a male (looks like drive) to eSATA cable, but am able to use my 2TB inside an external drive that is about the same size (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182179).
(the drive connector - had to break the tabs - to eSATA I couldn't find here at newegg).

Under linux, the ATA detects the turn on and SMART is published so I may try for spinrite in a virtual box.

I have disks lying around (this without the cable hack will only do 2.5") as well as USB sticks and SD cards, but not the "laptop" memory, so remember memory when pricing, though 4G isn't that expensive.

The USB including the fast USB3 is bootable, as is the SD card.

I need to check-out the pci card port.

In summary, it does what I wanted it for. I will try some "spinrite-in-virtual" so might get SMART, but spinrite itself booted off a USB stick or SD card runs fast enough on the internal SATA, and 6.1 should fix this by itself.

It runs Fedora 20, but the HDMI/video is off the screen or looks strange (I'm usually doing command-line and as a media server or to sort through my collection of other hard drives while I'm away - the USB3 helps). VGA works. It could also be the TV I have it connected to. Being an Atom, it isn't fast, and lots of IO will pause it. Think "netbook".

There's extreme minimalist, and there's basic, and this is basic and for that it works well, and I don't mind hacking a cheap box since I'm out less if I break it. I was considering trying to find a used regular PC, but this is better.

I can't get USB3 or SATA on something like the raspberry pi and even the used PCs rarely have a SD slot or USB3, many don't have HDMI. So it ends up as a good hardware hack platform out of the box.
