Foxconn Brazos AT-5570 AMD A45 (Hudson D1) 1 x 204Pin SO-DIMM AMD Radeon HD 7290 Silver Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Inexpensive
Small, mounts to VESA-compliant bracket mounts behind monitor
Linux-compatible; I loaded & booted openSUSE13.1 with little difficulty

Cons: **BIOS is weird. If you're going to install an internal SATA drive in this thing, make SURE you boot it from a usb FIRST, or it will automatically default to booting from the (still blank) internal drive. After the first time booting it with the internal drive disconnected, however, the BIOS reliably allows me to select boot device by repeatedly tapping F11 during power-up (but it's too late to press it once you see the message flash on-screen)

**HEAT ... leaving this thing running for any period of time at all, even with the cpu at 10% or less causes severe heat issues & the case can get very uncomfortably hot. Honestly, this cpu simply wasn't made to run with that little heat dissipation, and thermal-protection will scale performance WAY back if you don't provide auxiliary cooling! I cut holes in the back panel of mine & soldered a fan connector to the on-board usb header so I could mount a 120mm case fan. Now I get MUCH better performande out of it, and the cpu no longer overheats!

BYTECC Bracket-35225 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Sold as a bracket for mounting 1 SSD, but it actually has mounting points for 2!
Fits right

Cons: Plastic, rather than metal, so it does nothing to help keep your drives cool.

Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Reliable
Boots to full GUI in < 1 minute (openSUSE13.1 XFCE Desktop)

Cons: Why didn't I find this before I spent more $$$ on a slower SSD?

Other Thoughts: Bought one of these to build a miniPC for my mother in law. Now her miniPC with a 2-core 1GHz CPU boots in less than 2/3 the time my mid-tower running on a different brand SSD with a 4-core 3.6GHz cpu needs!

I'll DEFINITELY be ordering more of these, and have already placed an order for a few mushkin USB3 sticks!
