4 out of 5 eggsPay Attention to the RAM

Pros: Small form factor
Reasonable power
Comes with discreet mounting gear
Comes with a 4GB USB stick with all reference materials and needed software

Cons: 'Requires' DDR3L RAM... low power, ok, makes sense when you think about it but i bought a standard 4GB SODIMM. Doh.

Even after finding the jumper solution had some errors installing my Win7Pro from USB but the Win8.1Pro fired off without any trouble.

Other Thoughts: Pay attention to the 'required' RAM DDR3L. The tiny jumper next to the RAM slot allows use of standard 1.5V SODIMM but it's simpler to buy what works out of the box with minimal adjustment.

This little machine will be a public terminal and needed to be less obvious for little fingers poking at buttons and pulling on wifi antennae. I have another version of this unit at home running as a multimedia center on my TV. No real issues ever with Foxconn stuff thus far.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: I have always purchased machines with low power processors for my HTPC. This one so far is the absolute best. Its fast, it plays 1080p flawlessly, the sound is excellent, setup was easy. I had one question on the setup and called support, they answered my question within a few minutes. I have run windows 7, 8, 10(preview), ubuntu and a thin client software(devon IT) on this thing and they all worked and ran without issue.

Cons: First of all the rubber feet for it are terrible, they connect with magnets and those magnets are very weak, I lost one within a week. Second is the shiny black case, it scratches very easily. Third, it has a fan, This is a drawback for longevity, a little bigger heatsink and you could count on this thing to run for 10-15 years with SSD technology. The fan is low speed and looks to be a common 50mm layout, so in the end it may not be too bad.

Other Thoughts: Don't put a HDD in these, it will be noiser than the fan, stick to SSD.

4 out of 5 eggsWhoa! Almost perfect.

Pros: Shockingly powerful in a small footprint with low power draw. Was drastically discounted on clearance. Great for an all in one nettop htpc. Runs 1.35v OR 1.5v DDR3 1333 OR 1600 SODIMM. Actually looks good and feels solid enough. Hasn't overheated and with the fan on full tilt, it's not too bad. This is a job well done, it chugs along in Win7 ult 64-bit with Media Center all day. Sounds via HDMI works great.

Cons: It's not silent; it's also not clear at all in the descriptions that WiFi is built in (but it is). There is no HDD activity light and the power LED is too bright. Slight nag: but the USB ports are too close to one another, making it hard to use dongles that are any wider than the ports. The BIOS is convoluted and the included instructions are minimal. Could have used an extra punch out rear blank for antenna use with mini pci-e slot (I'm gonna have to drill a hole for my TV tuner header). HDMI sound output is only Stereo. No built-in IR pickup.

Other Thoughts: The WiFi chip is onboard and the antennas are on the inside of the case, leaving the slot open. The included tool and extras (it has little magnetic feet) are nice. People have mentioned having issues with the screws, which are loc-tited I didn't have a problem, but unless you know what you are doing, I could see setup being a hassle due to the chassis and lack of clear instructions / bizarre BIOS config. I like that I can get this directly from the integrator as opposed to a turnkey company, because it saves money, but again, you get what you pay for with this barebone. One thing I cannot find an answer to is this: Why is there a small, translucent, white plastic insert on the front panel? What is this for? Is this where my missing HDD LED is supposed to be? Why not put an IR pickup here?

4 out of 5 eggsNanoPC goodness

Pros: *Small footprint
*Built-in WiFi
*Provided case removal tool
*4GB USB stick with Windows 7/8 drivers
*Pentium J2900 Quad Core
*Can use either 1.35V or 1.5V SODIMMS. Default is 1.35V.

Cons: *Difficult removal of case screws. The provided mini screwdriver, built into case removal tool does not work well to remove the screws. You cannot get enough torque to unloosen the screws. I had to use another screwdriver to get them out and even with that it took a while. I don't understand why Foxconn would apply loctite on the screws since the case has to be opened to install the hard drive and memory. Patience is required.
*Noticeable fan noise in a quiet room. Not ideal for bedroom deployment unless you power the unit off when done using the NanoPC.
*Replacing the fan in the future could be an issue. Because it is small (looks to be 40mm) in my experience these get nosier over time or die. I managed to find a replacement on "Am.zon". A better option would be to use a passive heatsink as a replacement.

Other Thoughts: To install Windows, you have to enable CSM Support in the BIOS which opens a sub-menu where you can choose the Windows OS. Win8 is the default selection. By default CSM is disabled so I assume that non-Windows OS can be installed. I haven't tried this yet. Other reviews indicate you can but with specific flavors.

I purchased a 8GB Crucial DDR3L PC3-1600 SODIMM. It booted fine with the NanoPC. There is a jumper setting on the mobo that you can change if you need to use 1.5V SODIMM.

For me, I installed Win7 and it went smoothly via USB stick. Installing the drivers was easy peasy. Only one piece of bloatware (Game related) that got installed after doing the driver installation. This was easily uninstalled from the Control Panel's Program and Features menu.

Of note, I constantly hear the fan on and have never heard it off. The BIOS setting has "Smart Fan" enabled. I'm sure this allows for variable speed. I'm hoping to find a small enough heatsink that would fit in the case to install. This will make the NanoPC absolutely silent.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Happy

Pros: * Inexpensive
* Supports Windows Server 2012
* Quad core Pentium
* Compatibility
* Includes pry tool for case.

Cons: Uses 204 pin memory (harder to find and more expensive).

Other Thoughts: I added:
- 1 Corsair Force LX Series CSSD-F256GBLX 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD).
-1 CORSAIR 8GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) to this build.
- Windows Server 2012 R2 x64 Essentials.

To my surprise it is quite peppy and handles the duties as a SOHO DC quite well!

All told I think I have less than $350 sunk in to this build (after rebates).

This is no high end gaming machine, but it appears to be quite capable as a thin client or bargain SOHO server.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat system, just not with Windows 7

Pros: Itty bitty teeny tiny.

The included plastic pry tool means that you can open the case without scratching it. It should also be useful for opening XBox's.

Cons: The included USB driver stick didn't function at all. As noted elsewhere, Foxconn's end-user driver site is nearly unusable due to Javascript problems. Google "nt-ibt29 drivers" for a useable download site.

It was difficult to install Windows 7 on this system. I recommend Windows 8.

Other Thoughts: The BIOS needs to be set to Windows 7 mode for the installer to even start. The Windows 7 installer couldn't find the hard drive despite begin supplied with the right drivers, so I ended up putting the install sources on the hard drive and installing from there (weird, but it works).

4 out of 5 eggsCapable HTPC: high value, small package

Pros: • Nice to have x64 and >4GB physical memory in a very small form factor
• J2900 quad core (J2800 in newegg listing is incorrect)
• J2900 has Intel Quick Sync Video support for media conversion, nice on an HTPC
• Attractive enough
• According to the manual, it can take DDR3 (i.e., regular voltage DDR3, not just DDR3L) via a jumper on the motherboard, I had purchased DDR3L but may test this
• No problems with audio or video over HDMI to a HDTV

Cons: • No dual channel goodness given single SO-DIMM slot
• No IR sensor like Intel NUC
• SATA2, no SATA3
• website not pleasant in Chrome or IE
• Not silent, CPU fan audible in very quiet room
• Opening case a bit tricky: very hard to get screws out (have loc-tite on them!), plastic lid fragile (hence included tool)

Other Thoughts: Bought this to be a Windows Media Center (on Windows 8.1) box. Added G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (F3-1600C9S-8GRSL) memory, Samsung EVO 250 GB SSD, Logitech K400 refrub keyboard and Rosewill RRC-126 remote.

Newegg (which is my favorite e-commerce site bar none) has some errors in its listing for this SKU: model is nT-iBT29, not iBT-29 and the CPU is in fact a J2900 (there is no J2800, at least not that I could find on Intel’s ARK or anywhere else).

Machine came in a nice cardboard box that additionally contains a quick install guide and a small plastic bag. Search through everything and it will save you pain. The included physical tool is a smoky translucent butter knife-looking thing to pry the case open safely and it has an embedded perfectly sized screw-driver in it for removing the case cover.

The machine already had the latest BIOS on it. I didn’t have to make any notable tweaks, but I did change the SATA mode to AHCI for the SSD I was putting in. If you do go to grab a new BIOS, make sure you also grab the Windows flashing tool (FoxWinFlash, which is on the Tech Support tab under Utility on the nT-iBT29 page on is generally a better experience than given the odd embedded controls that misbehaved on the latter site.

The EVO 250GB SSD I stuck in happened to have a Windows 8.1 installation already on it (from an i3 desktop from a different manufacturer), but it dutifully and quickly booted on the nT-iBT29. Only addition for basic function was to add the Realtek network driver. However, I was just testing the machine so I next wiped the SSD and installed Windows 8.1 from a USB stick.

Since I didn't discover the included USB stick with drivers that supposedly came in the package, I ended up in device manager with several things requiring drivers after my Windows 8.1 base install (and Windows Update updates). These included the card reader, wifi card, TXE/encryption drivers and system mgmt bus controller. I found drivers for everything I needed (start with Intel chipset drivers) online without much difficulty.

I spent the ~$10 to add Windows Media Center to Windows 8.1. That was easy from directly in Windows. The system is working fine. It connects to my OTA HDHomeRun over a ZyXEL powerline network adapter and bandwidth is fine for HD. I actually just shut the wifi off entirely since I've found the powerline networking to be very reliable at my house.
