5 out of 5 eggsPerfect!

Pros: Silent - no moving parts to make noise
Very sturdy construction - steel mesh frame
SSD or CF storage - can boot from either one
Dual gigabit ethernet ports - great for firewalls, proxies, dhcp servers, etc...

Cons: Runs pretty hot.

Other Thoughts: I have have been using this device for 6 months now running Linux with a rather high network load on both ethernet ports. It has performed flawlessly.

I have not tested the video capabilities of this device yet, but I've been meaning to see if it can successfully play back full HD (1080p) without hiccuping (I believe it can, but can't say for sure yet.)

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Firewall

Pros: This device is awesome. It's tiny, fanless and low power with 2 x NICs. It comes with 1GB of RAM and has removable space for an HDD or CF card. It is THE perfect open source firewall appliance.

I used an old HDD and installed pfSense on these little guy and it is working great. Much better than some of the other dedicated Monowall/pfSense network appliances I bought - and cheaper too! No fans means that it's quiet with less points of failure. I'm going to start using these for all our router/firewall installations.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Well it's not a con, it would be nice if I could get a miniPCIe NIC card for this thing to increase the interface capabilities. I couldn't find one and I'm not sure if it would be usable if I did. Just a thought - this thing with 3-4 NICs (for DMZ or something similar) would be unbeatable.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat pfsense firewall

Pros: Small
Low power
Comes with 1GB ram installed
2 Ethernet ports

Cons: Bright blue power button
Limited BIOS

Other Thoughts: The DE2700 is a perfect Linux firewall. I installed pfsense on it and it is running flawlessly. Contrary to some of the reviews you CAN boot off of compact flash if you have a hard drive installed. You simply have to set the CF as the first boot device in the bios and delete all other devices from the boot order. I replaced an aging netscreen 5gt and am very happy so far.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Silent & quick with CF Boot

Pros: Silent Running. No moving parts to fail. I was able to get this to boot from a CF card, with a 500 gb green on the sata connection. It was fun finding a "fixed disk" CF card, but once I had it (RiData 600X Lightening Series), performance jumped considerably. Be sure to disable write caching on the CF card, and enable on the spinning hard drive.

Cons: Limited Bios. It worked for me, but missed a couple of features found in DEX4501.

Other Thoughts: Completely satisfied with it. I have 2 running now, and am going to build 3 more. Utlizing for Security Camera recording and remote access.

4 out of 5 eggsHigh Pitched Noise Followup

Pros: I got a replacement unit which does not make the high pitched noise noise.

Cons: I ordered this and the unit made a terribly loud high pitched noise.

1 out of 5 eggsNice, but the noise it makes!

Pros: Very nice little machine, I agree with all the other comments I read.

Cons: Makes a mind-shattering high pitched noise that makes me nauseous.

Other Thoughts: Will request a replacement and follow up if it was one bad one or a bad product.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome little device

Pros: 2 gbit NIC's on a dual core ATOM platform, fanless, ships with 1GB RAM expandable to 2GB, and you don't have to crack the case to add a drive or CF card. pfsense works great on this box, installs without issues and all the hardware is supported, including power saving functionality.

Cons: The price point is such that I can't replace my entire home network infrastructure with a bunch of these in one single paycheck (I also have kids).

Other Thoughts: e-sata would be nice but there are other small boxes in the same class with that feature, this box shines with 2 gbit NICs. There are no ps2 ports for people who fret about such things.

some FYI... this device looks to be marketed by AOpen as a digital sign display driver type of machine and the device is actually designed to me mounted to the back of a modern flat panel display.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for light industrial computing applications

Pros: No nonsense, just a little Atom PC with CF slot and 2.5" SATA carriage.
- Plug and play. Just add CF card and boot an installer from thumbdrive. 1GB of RAM included. I didn't even need to open the case.
- Boots Ubuntu Server 11.04 from a 8GB Sandisk Extreme CF in around 16 seconds.
- Solidly built steel case.
- CF and SATA are protected by doors with a locking screw.
- Dual serial ports good for industrial applications.

Cons: - External power brick, but that's par for the course with book PC.
- Fanless Intel Atom gets pretty warm even when idle. It literally comes with a "Hot Surface" warning sticker.

Other Thoughts: HDMI would open other digital signage possibilities as DVI does not carry audio. But my application is headless anyway, and for all I know the video performance is terrible.

5 out of 5 eggsNeat little appliance

Pros: Small footprint, sips power slowly, dual gBit NICs, quiet due to passive heatsinks, supports booting from a cfCard, great to use as a router appliance.

Cons: The blue LED is super bright and there is no option to disable it, the NICs are Realteks.

Other Thoughts: Ok, there is little info on these available online so I will summarize a few things for people that either own these already or are looking to buy one.

1. Press delete to get into the BIOS upon boot.
2. You need to have the HDD unplugged if you want to boot from the CF Card.
3. The NICs are as listed from dmesg under linux, and they will run under BSD (ie. pfSense)
RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 03)
4. It supports a 2GB stick of memory.
5. Quiet boot can be disabled in the BIOS.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat pfSense platform!

Pros: Small, dual NICs, ships w 1GB RAM installed (mine came with Apacer CL6), N270 does hyper-threading, has 2 serial ports, DVI, audio (not that you'll need it for pfSense), 4 USB 2.0, and did I mention it was small?

Cons: Gets a little warm during normal use, no worse than my MBP, but still pretty warm - I may look at modding it with a fan to make it last longer. Front panel NIC activity lights would be nice - yet another mod (board has connectors for them).

Other Thoughts: I slapped a 32GB SSD in it and now I am cooking with gas baby! This really is a great little platform and I will probably be picking up a couple more for various tasks around the house.
