Pros: Small, Current, Chick
Cons: No internal expansion slots
Other Thoughts: To the last reviewer: the problem you have described sounds like what I went through when I first powered up my unit. As it turns out, I had added a 4GB memory module, not on the list of tested 2GB modules at the time. However, before you RMA a perfectly good unit, chat with one of the live tech at Zotac. They can step you through the process to update your BIOS, which will add support for 4Gb memory modules.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: small form factor, mounting options, versatility, style
Cons: Documentation! The manual is near useless. For a DIY box, the manufacturer leaves a lot up to the consumer to figure out. I feel bad for the Zotac's live techs. I was hoping to find more information on their website or on the CD that shipped with the unit. The manual, as useless as it is, is missing from the CD entirely.
Other Thoughts: The product is sold with both AMI and Award BIOS. I got AMI; how unlucky am I? Both BIOS use the "Delete" key during POST, when the computer is first powered up, to enter the BIOS settings. The max "tested" RAM is 2Gb, found that out the hard way, as the RAM I purchased for this unit, 4Gb, would not boot. Luckily, I had some spare modules. The wireless adapter, made by AzureWave, is not certified by the Wi-Fi alliance, but claims compliance to 802.11n Draft 2.0. It works well enough. I am not sure if it is a card or a chip, as it is on the other side of the motherboard. One cannot remove the motherboard from the case, without voiding the warranty.READ FULL REVIEW
Other Thoughts: To the first reviewer: The Atom D510 has an integrated MCU with only 1 memory channel and 4 Gb max capacity. The new architecture uses the NM10 as a PCH (platform controller hub) This configuration requires that Nvidias new ION connect to the PCH via PCI express. Every unit sold from any manufacturer will have 1 channel of memory, and if combined with the ION, it will be a next-generation ION.READ FULL REVIEW
