ASRock Q1900M Intel Quad-Core Celeron Processor J1900 Micro ATX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: •consumes 9 watts of power with one 4GB mem stick and 1 HP 4 port NIC. Important since this runs 7x24 providing me internet access, VOIP, cable,wifi. My old box box sucked down 70 watts with same configuration, so this thing pays for itself in 6 months

•price after rebate was a smoking deal. I would say a great bargain at Newegg's price

•BIOS was really impressive-- connects to the internet and downloads and installs BIOS updates for you. Sweet.

•Fanless- no noise, no dusty failures down the road

Cons: •could not get this to boot of IPCop USB thumb drive. Not uncommon for the BSD IPCop distro, but a pain for me no less. I tried many different flavors of USB thumbdrive sizes and manufactures but no love. My workaround- cable up a CDRom drove to the mobo, install onto my SSD, shutdown and disconnect the CDRom.

Other Thoughts: It would boot off the following USB media without issue: Win8 install, Macrium, Ultimate Boot disk, PFSense. I tested to make sure I did not have port or mobo hardware issue - no eggs deducted, just an BSD IPCop thing.

StarTech ST1000BT32 1 Port PCI 10/100/1000 32 Bit Gigabit Ethernet Network Adapter Card

Pros: Works with FreeNas. On my FoxCon Intel Atom dual core to two drives I average 63MB/s.

Price is right.

Cons: None

Patriot 4GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model PSF4GMUSB(Blue)

5 out of 5 eggs FreeNas boot 02/28/2011

This review is from: Patriot 4GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model PSF4GMUSB(Blue)

Pros: Boots FreeNas. To make this happen I had to insert the thumb drive during or just after the FreeNas installation from CDRom process. Once it is installed it worked great. However, if you boot up with the thumbdrive already inserted during intial power up booting off the FreeNas install CD, the installer would fail (which was not the case testing my other thumbdrives).

LED blinky is nice.

Small- perfect size for always inserted boot device

Cons: Time it took to understand why this thumbdrive behaved different than my other two thumbdrives.
