Foxconn nT535-0h0w-B-A-NA Intel NM10 1 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel GMA 3150 Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: After running this box for 6 months on Windows 2008 R2 X64 I am still very pleased with it.

Draws between 15 and 20 watts even with an external 1TB USB 2.0 drive attached and my Serviio media server streaming to 2 devices. $15/year in power, so no guilt leaving it running 24/7

Since my TVs can stream from a DLNA server, I don't care that the video will not do full HDMI. I just run it headless and stream over the wire.

Single wire for power and I can put it anywhere in the house (or even take it with me when I travel or go to friends). Very tidy.

Gets warm, not hot, even with the fanless box.

Cons: Linux is non-trivial on this box due to Intel's lack of support for Video drivers on the Intel Atom in general.

Other Thoughts: Windows 2008 R2 X64 were the only Windows drivers that would work for a server class OS, so go X64 even though it has max 6GB of RAM just for the driver support.

I also run an FTP server, Squid Proxy and a BigFix server on this little box without any real performance complaints.

Foxconn nT535-0h0w-B-A-NA Intel NM10 1 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel GMA 3150 Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very pleased with this little box. I wanted a small server to host a web app at home that would not kill my electric bill. This little one does the trick. Running windows 2008 r2 x64 flawlessly using the Win 7 drivers.
I tossed in 4gb memory and since I wanted to keep power consumption down, a 120gb SSD. I run it headless sitting right next to my router. It barely gets warm. Beautiful case. Boots quick.

Cons: Not quite enough CPU to use for transcoding while streaming. serviio seems to peg the CPU and I get some stutters.
Only UBS2.0.
External power brick
Case challenging to get into and a bit flimsy.
Windows 2008 x32 - could not get any drivers to work.(real time killer that was)
Was no instructions for opening case or installing memory and drive.

Other Thoughts: Despite some false starts on initial setup, I find this little box a joy to work with.
