Works well, would buy again


I'll use this as a light-duty web/mail server, NAS host w/TrueCrypted drive attached via USB. No keyboard mouse monitor attached, just gig ethernet, controlled w/TightVNC. For that it'll be great. As a day-to-day PC this is a bit underpowered,...

Runs 10W at idle w/mechanical laptop drive installed, 15W with CPU at full load. No fan. Has WiFi built-in, though that's not obvious until you load the Intel WiFi driver. 32-bit Win 7 installed fine, w/4 gig RAM. Used the unmanaged RAM as a RAM disk...

BIOS is minimal, for instance, no "what to do after power loss" option. USB stick booting is unreliable -- couldn't boot Win install USB stick, would hang most of the time. Save yourself time and frustration and use a USB drive. Mem stick that came...

Simple box for hacking


I needed a box with a SATA port to run SpinRite and Linux (mainly CLI), so when this was a shell shocker, I grabbed it and a memory ( I had to get a male (looks like drive) to eSATA...

Good as a media pc


Small, fanless, easy to install SSD & Memory. Using it to run JRiver media server attached to my NAS. Works great no problems

Installation & Setup instructions are a bit sketchy. The flash drive provided with the AT-5250 works only with the USB 2 ports on the back. Took a bit of fumbling around to get it right. Other than that - no problems

Foxconn AT-5250


Current Linux Fedora X86_64 installed, and ran fine ; With an SSD, the computer has no moving parts

I expected an absolutely silent computer, but no; something inside the black box emitted a constant high-pitched squealing noise. I returned it

Great if you only need Win7 x86


Works great, good price, does what 32bit is supposed to do. But this is not a powerhouse to do super complicated networking, gaming, or computations, media server... possibly, but I wouldn't make it my first choice

Intel did not release 64bit drivers

No 64 bit windows


To the smarty who is using a non windows 64 bit OS. Great, but it does not support a windows 64 bit OS. It will install, but video and network not supported. So it is not usable. Check Foxcons website, no drivers available. Worked fine with windows 32...
