4 out of 5 eggsCapable HTPC, but loud fan

Pros: Energy efficient
Multiple USB 2.0 (4) and 3.0 (2)
HDMI, VGA output
Onboard wireless, ethernet

Cons: Single fan, difficult to replace, audible whine

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace an aging (7 year) HP slimline that I was using for torrenting, streaming (comedy central, youtube), and XBMC. It has the capabilities to deal with those without an issue. The problem comes from the on-board fan. I'm currently looking into ways to replace it, but it otherwise produces a very audible whine

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great as HTPC box

Pros: Cheap
Low power
Small form factor.
Real computer.
Hardware accelerated video decoding.

Cons: Could be a bit faster

Other Thoughts: This worked great on a trusty (14.04) install of ubuntu with xbmc. Plays 1080p h264 (high bit-rate) files with no problems with audio over HDMI. Video is accelerated using VAAPI to offload decoding to the GPU, worked for every file I tried.

Even without GPU decoding on mplayer2 it was fast enough to play high bit-rate 720p bluray rips. All in all well worth the $150. Slapped a SSD and 4 GB of ram and with a wireless keyboard/mouse (IOGEAR GKM561R) it makes a great HTPC able to handle everything I throw at it for under $300 completed. It boots quite fast with the SSD and with a full ubuntu install can be used for doing browsing and other stuff, etc...

5 out of 5 eggsSmall, Affordable, Quite, and Power Efficient

Pros: I build these for a client of mine. They are used in an office setting with the VESA mount. They are very quiet and when paired up with a SSD they fly! I recommend these if you do not need a ton of horsepower. They fit the bill and work very well.

Cons: None that I can think of.

4 out of 5 eggsGood overall

Pros: Good performance in a small package

Cons: Hard drive mount could not be removed

Other Thoughts: Overall I'm impressed with the quality and performance. The only bad thing so far is that the screws for the hard drive cage could not be removed. They're glued in with loctite to prevent loosening from vibration, but I could not remove two of the screws to install the hard drive. I saw another review mentioning case screws that couldn't be removed and thought it was probably that they weren't using a properly sized screwdriver. But nope, it's true - some of the screws are torqued and glued in so tightly that they absolutely cannot be removed. I'm fortunately using a lightweight solid state hard drive and was able to rig up something to hold it in. Hope they can fix this manufacturing issue in the future. Other than that, it's a great little PC.

4 out of 5 eggsQuite, Light and Fast Enough

Pros: As per title, it is Quite, Light and Fast Enough. Better than my previous Intel Atom N270 net top which lasted 4 years. Hope this would last than long too.

Cons: One of the case screw is stuck and cannot be remove. I'm have to FORCE to rotate the case to insert HDD and RAM.

Other Thoughts: Ensure the CASE screw can be remove easily by hand strength otherwise how to insert HDD.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat little box, if it didn't die on me

Pros: Low price, Celeron chip / Intel Video chip great for HD.

Cons: To load XP, have to put sata in legacy IDE mode. Raid drivers dont work with XP when running setup (not foxconn's fault necessarily). My Machine died within a week.

Other Thoughts: Machine is kind of a pain to load XP on. Have to put SATA interface into a legacy IDE mode to get windows to install. I may have gotten a bad unit (hopefully), but mine had issues turning on for a while. I was able to get it to the point of installing windows....then moved the computer to its permanent location, and could never get it on again. Waiting for RMA.

2 out of 5 eggsNo wireless on Linux

Pros: Very nice small form factor pc/server that is great for special projects. Have installed multiple distro's of Linux on this and all devices have been recognized. Dual Core CPU for work where one core just won't keep up.

Cons: Shortcomings are only one DIMM slot so 4G is your max choice for this box. Broken Intel Centrino-N wireless. Multiple Linux Distro's and multiple Intel Driver updates do not fix. Wireless card is on the back of the motherboard so it cannot be removed and replaced.

Other Thoughts: Product is designed as a TV/LCD set back media server. As such it is a failure. This need requires working wireless to avoid ethernet cables down the walls which you won't get with this product without replacing the Centrino-N wireless card with either another card or a USB dongle (what I'm going to have to do). The broken wireless is a core Intel issue with the Centrino-N wireless line. The people in the Intel forums are close to rioting over it (go read for yourself).
Foxconn Support Team how can this defective wireless card be removed and replaced? Working 802.11b/g wireless is 54mbit/sec faster than broken non-working 802.11n wireless.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We apologized for the inconvenience you've experienced, we would certainly take care of this problem.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I have no idea what the previous reviewer received but my nT-i2847 HAS INTEL WIRELESS. It isn't mini PCIe, it is embedded in the motherboard.

Small size.
Good CPU for the form factor.
Handles HD video great.

Cons: No way to revert the USB 3.0 to 2.0 mode
Some MCE equipment like IR receiver, blaster, etc... doesn't work on 3.0

Other Thoughts: Has wireless. It isn't mini PCIe but it is there.

The Celeron CPU is Sandy Bridge core based. Much much faster than the Atom and AMD E-series chip

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We thank you for your support in Foxconn products and appreciate your kind feedback.

the nT-i2847 does have the Intel mini PCIe wifi module, it is just installed on the backside of the motherboard so unless it's removed from the casing, it is not visible.

The Celeron model does outperform all the mentinoned models, CPU Benckmark info provided below.

Intel Atom D2550 (NT-i1250) = 680
AMD E-450 (NT-A3700) = 795
AMD E2-1800 (NT-A3800) = 842
Celeron 847 (NT-i2847) = 1006

Best regards,
Foxconn Support Team

3 out of 5 eggsNice little PC, no Wi-Fi as listed

Pros: It's a good little PC, perfect for running a lightweight Linux distro like Arch Linux on it. Takes 2.5 inch SATA drives, performance is great with a SSD. No trouble with the HDMI connection to my TV, you can access the BIOS over HDMI.

Cons: Does not include a wireless mini-pcie card as implied by the description!

Even the Foxconn website implies that there's a mini-pcie wireless card included, they even have drivers for various cards available for download on this device's driver page. The box says "wireless ready" so it seems like they've changed what included in this barebones kit from the early marketing material. Had I know this, I would have bought an Intel NUC instead as it doesn't come with one either and I prefer the form factor of the NUC.

The case is kind hard to get into, sometimes it feels like you're breaking it to pop the cover off. Also, the screws to remove the hard drive bracket are crazy-difficult to unscrew. I had to press so hard with a screwdriver to get them to turn without stripping them that I feared breaking the motherboard. Luckily, it seems there are standoffs behind each screw so when you press hard it doesn't flex the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: I'm keeping this device because I need it for a project right now, but I was disappointed at the lack of wireless, it the main reason I bought this over the NUC to save about $40. The newegg description clearly states what Wi-Fi n is included, and it isn't. The description needs to be made accurate.

Manufacturer Response:

The Mini PCIe Wifi module is now being installed on the backside of the motherboard. It is Intel Wifi. You can also download drivers from the link below. It is under the Tech Support tab.

Best regards,
Foxconn support team.
