Foxconn Nettop NT535 review

 

Off-the-shelf nettops usually have the same basic specification, with an Intel Atom processor, a small hard disk and 2GB of memory. However, barebones kits such as Foxconn's NT535 leave you room for a bit more customisation. It still has a modest...

Foxconn's compact barebones nettop is let down by the difficulty of opening it and its aging processor

Foxconn - NT-535

 

After the craze for netbook computers started to die down - mostly due to the sudden rise in popularity of tablets - manufacturers struggled to find a way to use up their massive oversupply of Intel's ...

The build quality of the NT-535 isn't the greatest - and the fan, while quiet, could become annoying in a living room environment - but it's a remarkably powerful machine for the price. Sadly, it is severely limited by its poor graphics performance -...

Get some use out of those old components with Foxconn's Atom-based barebones PC

A perfectly good barebones PC, but the Atom's integrated graphics chip is showing its age

Updated Review

 

Windows 2008 R2 X64 were the only Windows drivers that would work for a server class OS, so go X64 even though it has max 6GB of RAM just for the driver support. I also run an FTP server, Squid Proxy and a BigFix server on this little box without any...

After running this box for 6 months on Windows 2008 R2 X64 I am still very pleased with it ; Draws between 15 and 20 watts even with an external 1TB USB 2.0 drive attached and my Serviio media server streaming to 2 devices. $15/year in power, so no...

Linux is non-trivial on this box due to Intel's lack of support for Video drivers on the Intel Atom in general

Defective HDMI port

 

None

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
