Defective HDMI port



The HDMI port was defective. I also have a Foxconn nT-3800. The HDMI port works on it; so it's not the cable or monitor. The VGA port works, but it does not provide the resolution needed. So I consider this a defective unit

I want to love it but,


This is a great idea and I can think of many reasons to build more of these units for friends and family. Personally I was using this to replace a Windows Home Server Machine I had running. I used this device with 64gb SSD and 4gb ram installed Win8.1...

Small with everything you might need

No support. The website support page is gone, the phone number listed here at Newegg is disconnected

Great for XBMC


I think it is best to use a solid state drive. I have not used this with any other operating system nor tried out the wireless.

Quite and does not get too hot

None that I can think of

As a Linux HTPC


I gave this a ranking of 4 stars based on it meeting my wants, which was making a Linux based HTPC. The one big drawback it has to that end is the lack of 1080p resolution. For me this doesn't matter as the largest resolution of any of my digital media...

Small & Sleek ; Hardware Video Decoder (Broadcom Crystal HD BCM71005) ; HDMI Output

Max 1366x768 resolution ; Max 4GB Ram ; RAM/HD install somewhat difficult ; No USB 3.0

Must Chime In


Had to post after reading ALL the memory woes. I have just 1 one solution to offer. Actually it is a Microsoft brainchild -Ready Boost. Git yourself some " quality " SDHC memory ,use the card slot, and assign the 4 Gb SD card to Ready Boost. You may be...

This is a great form factor to turn any pre-smart TV - smart. Has plenty inputs for even the most savvy techno-geek. Does 64 bit with grace

Support is rather limited so that is where the value of Newegg comes in. Hibernation is given new meaning on this unit. The GMA 3150 is strangled when it comes to Linux distros

Pretty decent machine


This is the third of these computers that I've bought with several months between purchases. The other two are used for various different things in testing before I step up to more expensive machine that need to handle heavier loads. So far so good.

Works well, installed Windows Server 2008R2 Standard on this one to use as a network management computer. No problems doing a generic instal from disk and using the Windows 7 64 bit drivers to get everything working. The free SSD was a definite bonus....

Wish it had the ability to use more RAM, would like 8Gb

Powerful little boxes


I purchased 19 of these for workstations along with G.Skill 4gb memory modules. Every single one of these booted right up without a single issue. The 1.8ghz dual core atom surpassed my expectations. Power saving is amazing compared to the Pentium 4...

Opening the housing can be difficult the first time. Sometimes the screws don't come out all the way and they will bind and make it difficult as you're prying the case open with a small flat-head. I also had to disable "Hard Sleep" in the bios as the...

Not DOA after all


Cheap & Small - Quick support

This is an update on what I thought was a DOA ; It is just really picky about what ram it takes ; CORSAIR 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Laptop Memory Model CM3X4GSD1066 G" does not work in this system. I put a CORSAIR 2GB ram stick in...

Won't Post - DOA


Low Cost - very small

Won't Post... Checked Manual and the light that is blinking means it is a CPU initialization error.... I guess DOAs are common with this model? ...I have submited a support request with foxcon... will keep you posted on what happens

DOA - Don't waste your money


Don't waste your money on these fox conn boxes.

Wouldn't matter if there were any pros, as it didn't work

No post on arrival. No video of any kind, no beeps of any kind. Just a stupid blue light on the front. The most frustrating kind of failure - the failure that doesn't tell you what it is ; supported memory types not sold anywhere (DDR3 800)
