5 out of 5 eggsSolid System

Pros: Easy deployment
Idiotproof build
Small Size
Quiet
Low Power Consumption

Cons: Tabs to hold RAM in are a little flaky
Large power supply

Other Thoughts: This system WILL install an OS from a USB stick. Do not use the USB 3.0 ports for the USB, use one on the back side. We are using these machines with an mSATA 60GB SSD, 4GB RAM, and Windows 7 Pro x64. Sure, it's not a powerhouse, but for reliable auto-refreshing Crystal Reports, it's a perfect machine. Out the door for $344, you can't beat the size and performance.

5 out of 5 eggsNice; lots features

Pros: A few pros that may not be obvious:
- dual displays (HDMI+VGA) is supported and works well
- HD 1080p playback not a problem
- HDMI carries audio
- either DDR3 OR DDR3L (see below) - must be 1333+
- well boxed with neat accessories, like driver USB card.
- WIFI is built in.
- mini internal speaker built in may be enough for some.

Cons: - BIOS tweaks mentioned for OS installation (see others notes)
- MUST have 1333 DDR3 sodimm
- may not have enough current for a boot cdrom, but use Rufus or equivalent to make a boot USB stick.
- SATA2.

Other Thoughts: Great value at BFri prices, as other poster mentioned try to find the J1900 version if not much more as its quad core and has double speed for many benchmarks.

This has noticeable slowness in some things, but basic usage is fine. As mentioned from others this never goes above 12W (wifi+ssd).

Had put 1066 slower memory at first and no beeps, no video. Foxconn support picked up on first call and immediately said memory should be 1333+. Changed stick, worked fine.

J1800 says only supprots DDR3L -- but this has a jumper setting allowing for selection between 1.5 and 1.35V. PAY ATTENTION and know which memory you're using. Think that the quick install guide didn't bring this to attention.

Packaging was very well done; mount included for upright and a back monitor vesa cradle.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little NUC alternative

Pros: - Cheap at 180 and at the price of $113 it was a massive steal.
- Solid Thermals with no throttling even with a hot and old hdd + and msata ssd at 100% load.
- Slim.
- A lot of ports 4 usb 2 and 2 usb 3, hdmi, vga, audo and so forth.
- Lots of included screws, tools, mounts and so forth.
- Very solid load temperatures of 63C after 1 hour of intel burn in.
- WLAN included and some other small little features.

Cons: - Cpu is a little bit weaker than I thought
- SSD really really helps
- Runs my 1600mhz RAM as 1333mhz
- Bios is not as fancy as what I am used to
- Idle temps are high, not their fault really comes with form factor and noise.
- Fan louder than I would like.
- Only 1 SODIMM RAM slot.

Other Thoughts: Great deal, it works well. I would still recommend the foxconn j1900 version if they both are within $25 dollars of the price. If this stays at around $200 it is definitely a competitive deal with better thermals/performance than the other NUCs or barebone kits around the same price. The fan is notable, but not that bad especially for the performance and thermal trade off you get.
I would also have to recommend an msata ssd and at least 2gbs of ram preferably 4gbs. It is a great HTPC, handles all sorts of small tasks like office, browsing and video playback. I heard some people use the steam game stream service through this device. It is a great product, competitively priced and the quality of packaging, components and product exceeded my expectations at the price. I got my little system set up with 4gbs of ram, 32gb msata ssd and 700gb 5400rpm hdd for a little under $150 total before taxes and shipping with some of the parts lying around the house.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate - still love it

Pros: Inexpensive, does everything I need it to do. Well built.

Cons: Not passively cooled, but if it was, it wouldn't fit in this tiny case.

Other Thoughts: After seeing the other reviews, I figured I'd do an update. First of all, the BIOS does have to be adjusted if installing Windows 7. Others have covered it, so I won't. I have played around with this little unit quite a bit over the last few days, and have had Ubuntu 14.04, Windows 7, and now Windows 8.1 on it, with no issues.
I've installed XBMC on it and have watched every format of video imaginable, including 1080p HD blu-ray rips with no lag at all. I see another person stating they have had some, but I haven't noticed any at all, and while playing a video haven't seen my FPS drop below 59 (using the built in XBMC readout). CPU usage while watching HD videos went a bit over 50% from time to time, but I didn't notice anything as far as playback goes.
Browsing the internet and watching Youtube videos etc. have been no issue at all. The built in ethernet as well as the wireless both work fine.
I've installed several oldschool game emulators from Atari 2600 up to and including N64 and Playstation 1 with great results. No lag at all.
This is everything I would hope this little PC would do so I'm changing my mind, it deserves 5 eggs based on what it can do for the money.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat htpc, not easiest setup

Pros: runs openelec (xbmc) smooth as silk. no problems with live-tv, blu-ray rips, or any other codec i've tried. very small form factor. runs linux and even windows passably well if you stick to the basics.

power efficient: 10W at idle, never topped 15W even transiently. 2W in sleep mode. average 11-12W during video playback, depending on codec. windows used 1W more than openelec, and extra peripherals will add to your power usage (tested with ssd, 4GB 1.35V ram, and flirc ir remote dongle).

Cons: not easy to set up. you will most likely have to modify the bios to install your OS. and directions to do so are limited. it's not very complex, but you may have to trial and error a few settings to recognize your boot device. hdmi audio device kept disappearing in windows after installing the provided drivers. rather than rolling back to older ones, i'm sticking with openelec for a dedicated htpc.

Other Thoughts: recommend 4GB ram and a small SSD to get the best performance for a reasonable price. add flirc dongle and install openelec for a dedicated htpc. magnetic feet are silly, but don't ruin the rpoduct. awesome value if you can handle the setup.

5 out of 5 eggsKnow what you are buying....

Pros: Inexpensive....Tiny.....Very Energy Efficient....fairly straight-forward install of OS....

Cons: If you plan to install WIN7 then there are a few things YOU NEED TO KNOW that are NOT in any of the documentation....

1) You cannot install WIN7 from the USB 3.0 ports.

2) BEFORE you can install Win7, you must go into the BIOS....go to the "BOOT" Menu...Select CSM Configuration....then Select OS Selection....Select WIN7... IF YOU FAIL to do this your installation will proceed normally right up until the Final Re-Boot when you get an error message telling you that the Windows Installation Failed, please try again!

Other Thoughts: I purchased 5 of these nifty little PCs....three for Point-Of-Sale. terminals in my business, one for a "guest PC" @ home and one for a CNC controller.....before I even had the OS installed on them all, my aging HTPC crashed and burned so I immediately re-purposed one of these for an HTPC until I decide what to do for a new HTPC....I was honestly thinking I might just order another one of these.....but tweaking the video performance has proven difficult....it isn't "terrible" but it is not nearly as good as a first generation Popcorn Hour.....Motion is just "jerky" enough to be distracting and occasional hiccups of pixelation make it plainly unsuitable as an HD-HTPC....For browsing the internet, watching You-Tube videos and the like, running a Point-Of-Sale front-end or using as a CNC controller these are fabulous little machines, but unless there is some "magic setting" to improve the video performance consider spending a little more money for an HTPC. I gave these nanos 5 eggs because they are EXACTLY what I was looking for and do EXACTLY what I want them to do while using almost NO electricity.....but if you are looking for a gaming PC, an HTPC or are looking for something with serious horsepower, these simply are not the right choice....

So, if you KNOW WHAT YOU ARE BUYING, then these are GREAT little boxes!.....perfect for my needs anyway:-)

2 out of 5 eggsGood system. Bad BIOS

Pros: I bought 3 of these while they were on sale. The specs are really nice and I have purchased other models by FoxConn and never had a problem until I got this particular model.

Cons: The BIOS is horrible on this system. It WILL NOT boot off of ANY USB drive. I have tried 3 different USB drives with 4 different operating systems. The drives are detected by the BIOS (most of the time) but it will never boot to it. I plugged in a USB DVD drive and tried to install from that. It starts to load the OS installation and then the system locks up before I get any options to continue.

Other Thoughts: FoxConn: Please do not add your generic support information to this post like the others as this only gives the appearance of wanting to help. The only way to fix this is with a BIOS update (I'm using the latest one available D72F1P05)

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We are sorry for the inconvenience caused, may we know what OS you were trying to install? By default, BIOS is set for Win8. But most customers are still using Win7. For Win7,

you need to set CSM support = enable & OS select = Win7 otherwise you cannot install Win7.

We provide the direct technical support line because most issues we've seen are solved by a simple phone call.

4 out of 5 eggsVery decent for the price

Pros: Inexpensive, quite fast for what I need.
Nice mount for the back of the tv.
Nice and small, decently built. Doesn't feel like it's going to fall apart.

Cons: Not passivly cooled.

Other Thoughts: When I saw the price of this, I thought it was too good to pass up. I had been using a Raspberry Pi (which I love) as my multi media device in the living room, and although it worked great, I wanted a bit more power, and to be able to properly browse the internet and do some basic computing. I robbed 4GB DDR3L from my laptop, and used an old 160GB hard drive I had. I didn't need a bigger drive as I use a home server. I installed Ubuntu 14.04 from a thumb drive. Installation and updates were painless and done in about an hour. The built in wireless works fine too. I've watched several types of video files with no issues, and browsed the internet and just generally used this little computer as I would a regular desktop, and love it. My next plan is to install either Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 on it, which I know it will run with no problem. I have some oldschool game emulators and roms that I want to run, which is another reason I purchased this in the first place.

4 out of 5 eggsQuite the little bugger to set up

Pros: Once I figured out how to install windows 7, everything is good. Works great as a dvr using windows media center and a cable card from twc. Subtracted a star due to the lack of any useful documentation. Doesn't foxconn make the iphones? Probably why I have no prefer oranges over apples

Cons: Relatively no documentation, have to fly solo by the seat of your pants. How difficult is it to fully document the bios and especially discuss how to install the various OS's.

Other Thoughts: Hope this helps someone ... To install windows 7 ... in the bios select BOOT tab // CSM Configuration // enable CSM Support // OS Selection // Windows 7 ... then install windows.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Regarding the lack of documentation, we are sorry for the confusion it may have caused but the all the support documents like the manuals are on the included USB thumb drive.

1 out of 5 eggsunrefined support

Pros: seems to be well thought out physically/structurally. Use CSM in the bios to load Win 7

Cons: loading win-7 and driver support is a real challenge. I struggled w the original bios for a while and managed to get win-7 to load, then I tried to update to a newer bios, the shipped bios was 2 revisions behind the latest bios. using the instructions in the manual, it flashed and said the flash was successful and said to reboot, i did and it's been a brick since. There were better instructions included with the second to newest bios but these instructions were not included with the files in the newest bios download. I can't seem to invoke any kind of known recovery process and I'm still waiting for a reply from FOXCONN online support. Never been stuck w a brick before and no way out.

Other Thoughts: They really need to refine their bios, their support documentation and the way they make things available. I've been to hell and back w computers and have unbricked many bad flashes but this one is just not cooperating. The latest bios has no documentation and the manual says to flash in windows. The second to last bios update explains how to update from the UEFI shell and also using DOS. If they carried this info over to the latest bios I would have flashed outside the OS but the latest bios and the manual do not mention this.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

We are sorry to hear that you have experienced this issue with our unit, our free technical support service would be more than happy to help you troubleshoot the unit and get it working.
