Pros: I bought over 100 of these little guys to build computer labs for four separate schools. So far I have about half of them up and running without a single failure! This is about the only component that I haven't had to RMA yet. Using them as fat clients on Edubuntu LTSP is an awesome solution for these labs with 4G of RAM and no need to buy hard drives. Easily powers my 1080P monitors without hesitation on effects and video playback. Rock solid as far as I can tell. And, VESA mounting them on the back of the display along with a little cable management provides the super-clean look I wanted in these labs.
Cons: Still haven't been able to figure out a (reliable) way to boot these machines with WOL (Wake on Lan). Don't want the students to have to reach behind the monitors to power up the machines in the morning. (suggestions welcome) They seem to maintain a 10mbit link in S5, but the MACs don't register in the address table of my switch, so I don't think the Magic Packet is getting forwarded...?
Other Thoughts: Very satisfied with these little guys. If/when I get the WOL issues solved, I'll have the perfect setup for my needs.READ FULL REVIEW
