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 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820313096). I had to get a male (looks like drive) to eSATA...

Inexpensive ; Compact ; Features (sata, usb3, hdmi+vga) ; usb3 ; bootable SD and usb3

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

Consumer review by:

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...

None

Does not support windows 64 bit OS
