4 out of 5 eggsGreat except for Poulsbo

Pros: Cheap, quiet, straightforward. Compatible with 64-bit Linux (even if the specs say 64-bit Windows is not supported).

Cons: POULSBOOOOO! This motherboard has Intel Poulsbo (GMA-500) graphics, which are very poorly supported under Linux. So far I haven't even managed to get proper modesetting on the HDMI port; I just get a resolution of 1024x720 and a bunch of odd visual corruption next to the (otherwise usable) image.

I wouldn't have bought it if I'd known it was Poulsbo.

Other Thoughts: This machine has 32-bit old-fashioned legacy PCI, not PCI-Express (PCI-E)! It works fine, but not if you buy the wrong card.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat but large Atom

Pros: Got this rather large for an atom as my fourth atom. looks great on the outside and has plenty of usb and the like.
Nice roomier case with two quiet case fans, room for 2 large hard drives and dvd player. Loaded 64 bit 8.1 and ended up with a fast snappy machine for an atom. Under heavy use it behaves flawlessly. It needs a beeper if you experiment. there is a place on the MB. it is time consuming to get in the second piece of memory.
Gets a good score in Passmark for an atom. Buy it for around $70 unless you need graphics.
I later put $17 NewEgg wireless in the PCI slot. But it worked equally as well with a trendex into the USB slot.

Cons: If you need graphics none of my 4 atoms are for you. Buy instead the Celeron Foxconn MB combo which is twice as powerful and add a case up to $50. Alternatively buy the Foxconn 1150 MB and add a case and a $60 CPU for 3 times the power and in time buy the i7-4770k for this MB.

Other Thoughts: we have bought several small from fanless low powered computers in recent times for special purposes. The only large one of the batch is this one.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes what it says, only what it says

Pros: - Low power consumption
- Compact
- Decent build quality
- Dual core
- Just add RAM, storage and OS, and she's ready to go

Cons: Only does what it says, but are listed in the product description
- Intel graphics is only supported in Win7-32bit which is not current
- Only 2 SATA connections
- SATA II

Other Thoughts: Bought this thinking I'll be able to run an OpenElec box by hacking the graphics. But that didn't work out and I didn't want to pay $100 for WIn7 32-bit OS.

I ended up putting the motherboard in to an ATX chassis and making a FreeNAS box out of it. It works without issue with 4GB RAM and two 3TB HDD's.

If you want to build a small low-power Win7 machine for basic use, this fits the bill. The limitations are listed in the description. I got burned by thinking I can do better. Some have made Ubuntu run with 1080p graphics on the Intel graphics, but I didn't want to invest the time (a lot of it I expect) to do it because I value my sleep.

In the end I came out even by making a NAS out of it. But it required an old ATX case and a PS. I can get about 60MB/s transfer rates, might be faster if it had SATA-III.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat Endian Firewall

Pros: Used this system to implement a nice Endian Firewall for a client. It has plenty of power and the perfect form factor. The additional PCI slot gave me the room I needed for a second NIC.

Cons: The external 3.5 bay is pretty much unusable due to the location and size of the power supply. Though this is a common issue with these particular units.

My biggest con was the need to perform a BIOS update in order for the box to be remotely usable. Running the default BIOS, the screen immediately after the POST forced my monitor out of scan range and could not be viewed. I had to hook it to a TV through HDMI to 'see' anything. A flash of the BIOS fixed all of these issues, but it was frustrating getting there.

Other Thoughts: As someone else already mentioned, you need to look up the motherboard on Foxconn's site to find the BIOS updates (they are up to '07, and the machine ships with '01). You will NOT find it on the barebones download page. Also, don't follow their site instructions for flashing, just run the BAT file... Another point of issue...

I'd still recommend the box if it fits your needs...

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,
We apologize for the inconvenience, We will feedback your issue of particular units to our correlative department.
With regards to the issue,you can download the BIOS from the motherboard,it is D270S,please refer to the below link:

4 out of 5 eggsHTPC or Linux 64bits

Pros: Price. Definitely fits any budget.
RAM (uses DDR3 SODIMM), another price factor. Most of the laptops / older Apple iMac's / Mac Mini / MacBook & MacBook Pro all use this standard DDR3 SODIMM RAM, so I picked up some 4GB (from people w/ upgrades) for almost nothing.
Has room for a full size 5.25" Bay
Has room for 2x 3.5" Bay, but not recommended.

Cons: The build is kind of flimsy for one.
And only supports 32bits Windoze 7.
Utilizing 4GB of RAM is not really do-able.
And the CPU utilizes at over 50% with just google chrome opened up just one tab, playing YouTube video at 720p.

Really way under powered even for just media, or just for browsing & emails.

Other Thoughts: With 2 cores & hyper threading, this CPU is really under powered. Don't try to build a PC like this, unless you know what you're doing with it.

I ranned a 128GB Kingston HyperX SSD on it, and it's quite fast at boot up, but doing anything, takes a while . . . . CPU utilization is over 55% with just virus scanner & youtube. I guess by buying this, I'm sure I won't be buying Super Micro's ATOM CPU Server. I mean I like the planet, I like saving energy, but these don't really cut it. Slightly faster than my 2002 Pentium 4 1.6GHz I reckon. Well, not really . . . . because this has 4GB of RAM, where I only had 1.5 or 2GB at the time . . . .

Anyway, buy this if you know what you're doing

4 out of 5 eggsIt works, yet it doesn't.

Pros: After building the PC, it booted fine and everything. I didn't have one hitch there.

The PC with the base motherboard works well for small things like word processing, videos; it works about like the current dual core tablets do.

Cons: I noticed the moving windows on the desktop would make the PC a bit laggy; disabling transparency solved that for the most part, but it still happens when too many windows/programs are up at once.

Next I tried to host the server, when Starbound's Beta (finally) came out... I thought a Dual Core at 2 Ghz would be fine for this, but the server has this issue of lag/slow moving objects.

Lastly, I wondered if I needed to re-install Windows 7 32 bit, because Internet Explorer 11 would crash when I tried to use Google, and I also found out I couldn't use Java, because it would crash (and still does) whenever I try to use it.

After re-installing Windows, the Google issue quit, but Java still does not work. It gets the error "Exception_Access_Violation" with the code 0xc0000005. I'm working with a Foxconn tech at the moment to see if I can fix it somehow.

Other Thoughts: I bought this Mini ITX PC in order to host a server for Starbound or Minecraft, that was to be up constantly; however, this didn't turn out quite as well as I planned.

At least I have the case and the spare parts/32 bit OS yet, however I'm looking at other ITX motherboard solutions, considering this processor and motherboard aren't the best for what I need apparently.

The case is good, the motherboard, not so much.

5 out of 5 eggsFoxconn R30-i4100

Pros: Works as advertised great computer for the kids to use for homework,internet,YouTube,and Netflix. That was the main reason for purchase.
PLEASE READ OTHER THOUGHTS

Cons: Foxconn support is not up to par with other manufacturers it took three emails to solve a problem that they could solve by simply putting the bios update on there support page with this unit instead of having to look it up by the mother board that is in it and then find the update there. PLEASE READ OTHER THOUGHTS

Other Thoughts: when i received this unit i put it all together and had everything installed including windows updates,and it would not allow java to run no matter what i did so i emailed them after learning that the problem was with the video bios being out of date. the first person told me there was no update for the bios and he would pass it along to another support member well again no help from that person either, finally the third email send was answered by someone with a brain, he had me go to motherboard support and drivers page and download the newest bios release which was FIVE revisions newer and included the needed video bios update to fix the problem. so to make a long story short the bios for this computer has had FIVE revisions and none of them are posted on the support site for this computer model under the support page, they are listed under the motherboard driver and support page (Motherboard Model D270S).

Bios version mine shipped with was (B35F1P01) D270S Motherboard

Newest bios found under motherboard updates (B35F1P07)

Furthermore all the newest drivers are listed as well.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Price.

Linux CentOS 6.4 X86_64 installed, and runs fine.

Cons: I bought 3 of these computers to create an experimental Linux cluster. 2 of the 3 computers had unbearably annoying fans (defective clicking noises).
The CPU fan runs incessantly at full throttle, even with absolutely no CPU load. I tried adjusting CPU cooling in the BIOS, at boot, but it never took effect.

The CPU fan is extremely annoying!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

The Foxconn D270S motherboard inside the R30-i4100 is fanless, it has passive cooling so the noise you hear must not come from the CPU fans simply because there isn't one.

All the case fans we have on our test units appear to be very silent, there's a small possibily that something might've fallen into the PSU fan which might've caused this clicking noise.

Please kindly shake the unit gently to make sure there isn't anything loose or stuck in the fans.

If you are still having issue with the fans, please call us at 714-626-6909 for further assistance or submit your email to the link below. Our hours of operation are from 830am to 530pm PST, Monday through Friday (excluding public holidays).

3 out of 5 eggsIt's a computer

Pros: Price, ease of setup

Cons: plays 720p choppy I'm afraid to even try 1080p, fails digital cable advisor..... why does it have a hdmi port if i cant use it as a high definition device?

Other Thoughts: sometimes you manufacturers like to pipe in and add your 2 cents so if you'd like to help out feel free. how can i get this to pass the digital cable advisor? I'd add a video card if there was a pci only card that would pass the dca. Is there an external means to this end? mainly is there a 3rd party driver for this video card? i have android tablets 2 years old that can handle hd output via hdmi better than this. I know the hardware can handle it if my 3 year old phone will

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Please make sure win7 32 bit is installed as Intel does not release graphic drivers for 64bit OS. R30-I4100(Foxconn D270S board) is certified for Win7 32bit. It is recommended to use Arcsoft player for HD content for this unit.

If you are still experiencing any issues, please call us at 714-626-6909 for further assistance or submit your email to the link below. Our hours of operation are from 830am to 530pm PST, Monday through Friday (excluding public holidays).

1 out of 5 eggsWhat FOXCONN says....

Pros: Update to the update....

The Video drivers support up to 1910x1080

ONLY WITH WINDOWS 32 BIT !!!!

Otherwise it's generic vga...with W7-64

Cons: Had to totally reload O/S from Win 7-64 to Win 7-32 bit.

Here is what FOXCONN says:

Welcome to Foxconn !
We apologize for any inconvenience, but the D270S board can only support Win7 32bit. We know that under Win7, Intel does not provided any GMA 3600 series drivers for Win7 64bit. So at this point, this board does not support Win7 64bit. Thank you .

Other Thoughts: Yep.. the retailer does not tell you, the manufacturer blames someone else... ah, yes...

Well, it's sunday and raining. We'll load a few DVD's later and see if the video is as smooth as our last HDPC

Here's the retailers statement regarding features.. The big sale...
Exquisite chassis and high- performance is the best choice of being placed in small place like rooms.

R30-i4100 integrates Intel dual-core Atom D2700 processor and Intel HD graphic technology,supports VGA and HDMI ports.

The ATOM processor supports 64 bit O/S....Oh well...

Manufacturer Response:

We apologize for any inconvenience but Intel does not release graphic drivers for 64bit OS. R30-I4100(Foxconn D270S board) is certified for Win7 32bit.
