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
• Foxconnsupport.com 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 foxconnchannel.com). foxconnchannel.com is generally a better experience than foxconnsupport.com 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.
