Foxconn nt-A3550-0H0WBANA AMD A45 (Hudson D1) 1 x 204Pin SO-DIMM AMD Radeon HD 6310 Black Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Great size, features, low noise level for the price. Makes a decent low end HTPC.

Cons: Does not consistently play HD content from a HomeRun Price tuner. Some channels fine, others not.

After 1.5 years, fan starting emitting terrible sound. Bad bearing perhaps. Now, when turning on tv, often the screen is multicolored and unusable. Have to play with resolution for about 5 minutes for it to get back to usable state. Sometimes, it is just a static "snow" screen and I have to reboot.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I got a good year out of the unit. Was it worth the price? No. Would have rather just put money into something that would have lasted at least 2-3 years and played HD video consistently.

Rosewill RX35-AT-SC SLV Full Aluminum Cover, Metal Tray 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Nice looking case, something you could set up and forget about.

Comes with esata and usb (B) data cables + power cable.

Very sturdy hd mounting and easy to put together.

On/Off switch so one doesn't have to unplug power to turn off.

FINALLY a DIM blue LED- bright enough to see, dim enough to not light up the entire room at night.

Nice small wall wart

Cons: Not for use as a "dock", though one could just not use screws I suppose. Untested so unsure of any vibrations this may cause.

(No fault of mfger) Wish esata also provided power over the data cable.

When configured esata w/ ahci, drive doesnt seem to power down. Might be missing a BIOS option to enable this(?)

Other Thoughts: Haven't tried the usb, but with a WD Green, transfer speeds over esata are darn good (60-80MB/s)

CORSAIR XMS2 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X4096-6400C5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: More Ram; If using the rebate, cheap. If not, price is about average.

Cons: No fault of Corsair, but had to install Vista x64 for the windows side to use more that 4GB ram. Linux of course has no artificial limits.

Other Thoughts: Haven't overclocked (dont plan to) so I can't vouch for that side.
