Foxconn NT-510-A-B-A-NA Intel Atom D510 Intel NM10 1 x 200Pin Intel GMA 3150 Nettop Barebone
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Attractive exterior with flexible mounting options (vertical with stand, horizontal with magnetic feet, VESA attachment)
Quiet and low power
* Great price
* Well-supported under Linux
* Broadcom Crystal HD video acceleration
* Reliable wifi (RTL8191SE)

Cons: * HDMI resolution only goes up to 1366x768 rather than 1920x1080 (which is supported by VGA-out)
* 2gb maximum RAM

Other Thoughts: I've been using this as a HTPC/fileserver for over 2 years, currently running Ubuntu Quantal. It handles everything I've thrown at it. Although the CPU performance is underwhelming, the Broadcom Crystal HD decoder works wonderfully with VLC to decode 1080p video with <10% CPU usage.

My only quibbles are with the 2gb RAM limit (bogs down when I open too many tabs in Chrome) and the fact that the HDMI-out resolution is less than 1080p (which is what the Intel GMA GPU is capable of). If you really need 1080p out, use the VGA out instead.

I'd happily buy another!

CORSAIR 2GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Laptop Memory Model VS2GSDS800D2 G
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's memory, it works, and I got it free as part of a combo deal.

Cons: None.

ASUS WL-520gU 802.11b/g Wireless Router up to 54Mbps with All-in-One Print Server/ DD-WRT Open Source support
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This router is sturdy, reliable, gets a good signal, and is support by open-source firmware such as Tomato, DD-WRT, or OpenWRT. The stock firmware isn't too bad either. Gets the job done!

Cons: None that I have encountered.

Other Thoughts: I got this for my parents' home and put Tomato firmware on it. It has been running nonstop for over a year, working very reliably. I have not used the USB print/file server features, but I have read on the OpenWRT web site that USB 2.0 support is a bit flaky and you're better off sticking with USB 1.1 speed.
