Very satisfied

Pros: Quiet, compact and fast - I am running with Windows 8 with 8GB memory and I didn't notice any slowness so far. It uses less power and is very quiet! It's time to get rid of my quad core machines.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I use a portable DVD drive to boot and install OS, and I had no problem whatever.

1 worked great, other was DOA

Pros: Fast, inexpensive, low power, quiet. Great Value.

Cons: I purchased two of these, one was DOA.

Other Thoughts: ArchLinux works perfectly making these ideal for low-power servers. Make sure to follow the UEFI motherboard instructions during installation. The fan is audible, but pretty quiet; it is great for a quiet office, but not suitable for a bedroom/HTPC where I would only use a fanless PC or 120mm fan.

I've requested an RMA from Foxconn for the DOA motherboard (fan runs, but no video); I'll report back on their RMA process.

PLEASE FIX YOUR BIOS

Pros: Good price. seems well built. plenty of ports. good layout

Cons: the bios is horrible. used this to build a firewall w pfsense. kept getting a temperature alarm, went from bios 02 to 04 and all that did was break ahci so i went back to bios 03 and got ahci back but my pcie network card stoppped showing up so i went back to bios 02 and had to modify a config file to tell pfsense to ignore temperatures.

Other Thoughts: has another FOXCONN product an nT-iBT18 nanoPC and after 15 yrs of playing with computers it was the first computer I've ever had to return because of a bad bios flash. Documentation would really help!

Great value with ArchLinux

Pros: Unbelievable value: $35 shipped for motherboard and a serviceable CPU! Snappy performance for a lightweight server. Archlinux installs easily and runs very fast. For RAM I used a Centon R1333SO2048 (SO DIMM 204-ppin DDR3-1333 notebook memory) and it worked with no problems.

Cons: Single RAM slot, manual is a joke.

Other Thoughts: I would have loved it without a fan, but for $35 I can't complain

Pretty funky

Pros: Cheap. Did I mention cheap? Adequate desktop performance if you can get it to work.

Cons: This thing has a terrible EFI BIOS, as others have commented. I wouldn't have spent enough time in the BIOS to notice if I hadn't had all sorts of issues with the mobo. I could never get it to boot from any optical drive, SATA or USB, even after updating the BIOS to the latest version. In fact, it wouldn't even boot up with one of my SATA DVD-RWs attached (the drive works fine with another system). I tried it with 2 boards, same thing. Nor would it boot to or recognize a 32 bit version of Ubuntu blown on to a USB stick with unetbootin, though it would boot from a 64 bit version. Also, it wouldn't let me use a msdos-style partition table on my drive, it needed to be gpt, which requires a gpt boot partition. Also, the thing doesn't seem to shut off cleanly in Ubuntu 14.04, I still get a light on my card reader until I toggle the switch on the power supply. Probably another symptom of a crummy BIOS.

Updating the BIOS was a pain and didn't solve any of the issues I was having. Hint for Linux users: to switch to the USB stick from the shell type in "fs0:" This is DOS notation, which I guess I vaguely remember from 20 years ago, but isn't explained in the documentation, either on the PDF manual or Foxconn website. The on-screen prompts implied that typing fs0 would be enough, without the colon. Also, I had to reset the board with the clear-CMOS jumper after updating. I don't think I'll bother flashing the other two boards.

Also, the board is extremely picky about RAM. And only one SODIMM slot. And it has a CPU fan. I've never seen a J1800 board that required a fan, most had a robust heat sync, which was adequate. The fan is quiet enough, but is obviously cheaper than a decent heat sync and will probably fail after a while, taking down the system with it. If I'd noticed it had a CPU fan I wouldn't have ordered the unit, even for $35 with free shipping.

It is not too well endowed in the rear-panel ports department. It has a serial port, which is pretty obscure, I'd rather have a DVI or more USB. And only a PS/2 keyboard port. What's the point? If you are going to have a PS/2 KB add a PS/2 mouse port so folks can use legacy KVM switches and rodents.

Other Thoughts: I bought 3 of these things to replace some old Athlon XP systems for desktop work. It took quite a bit of effort, but one is set up and behaving OK, for the most part except for some ACPI weirdness and occasional glitches with X. Still, I don't think I'll RMA the boards if I can blunder through their many issues. It is too much of a hassle, and if I can get them all up and running they will make adequate low-power desktop machines.

Manufacturer Response:
Dear Customer,

We are sorry for the inconvenience caused, but this Motherboard cannot support Linux and therefore we are unable to provide any technical support for Linux related issues.

However, for reference, BIOS update on this motherboard is different than other Foxconn boards. If instruction aren't followed properly, the BIOS chip might be corrupted.

If BIOS chip is corrupted, we can send out replacement BIOS chip at no cost.

so please call us at 714-988-9386 for faster assistance or submit your email to the link below (it is usually replied within 24 hours). Our hours of operation are from 830am to 530pm PST, Monday through Friday (excluding public holidays).

great for 1080p playback

Pros: I bought this and J1900 4 core to compare. J1900 has the same GPU as this one except running at 10% higher frequency.
J1800 J1900
23w 25w power consumption
40% 30% CPU usuage

running Office 2010 is about the same speed as J1900 in user point of view, maybe because clock speed is higher for J1800.

Cons: BIOS is buggy before updating. OK afterward

Mixed Feelings - Not Terrible

Pros: -About 14 watts idle, 34watts idle with three hard drives and solid state. Great for 24/7 File server
-Small size
-Price is right on the dot for the quality
-Practicaly silent

Cons: -No USB 3.0 header
-Bios is terrible to get windows 7 working on this board
-Bios Fan PWM control doesn't seem responsive.
-Only two sata ports, I had to use an add on card to get four.
-Would have preferred a larger heatsink with fanless design

Other Thoughts: Running this with 2GB memory for a fileserver. Can be a little slow but not unbearable. I would get this again if I have to go cheap as possible but I have never been a fan of Foxconn motherboards.

I am running this with a SY-PEX40039 sata card to use more drives. No issues at all.
