Solid HTPC/printserver/filserver/skype box

 

I have been using this nettop as a all-in-one PC. I have added Broadcom crystal HD- h264 decoder and 1080p is as smooth as silk. I have custom added s/pdif digital audio output which can do 5.1 surround sound perfectly using Toslink cable. I am using...

Low power usage ; Low noise ; small form factor ; gigabit ethernet

Bad heat sink design (Can be fixed by splitting the heat sink into two parts and attaching a cheap fan on top of the part which sits on top of the processor ; No digital audio output. ( Can be added, if you have hardware/soldering skills. Additionally,...

STIL lovin' it

 

There were peripheral issues; my purchase back in February got very entangled as to rebate. I don't know that one can fault anything but the rebate system which is, I believe, existentially designed to thwart & discourage any actual rebate $$...

I have reviewed this little box positively in a previous submission

None as to the machine

Perfect Windows Home Server

 

I reviewd this little box when I bought 2 last December. I just wanted to follow up. I bought a third one about 3 months ago for a Windows Home Server. WHS installed without any major issues. Because it it is based on server 2003 you have to use a...

Everything I expected

 

For the simple home server this box is ideal. Easy on the budget and easy to customize using bare drives and memory. Probably *not* a HTPC candidate, but I find it better to separate storage from playback.

Low power consumption - 25 Watts per my Kill-A-Watt ; Runs Ubuntu Server beautifully ; Runs cool and comes with a stand so it hides well behind a HDTV ; 2 SATA ports + 6 USB ports makes it ideal for customizing hardware solutions without taking up too...

Case is somewhat hard to put together when it's been taken apart. Ended up having to file pieces of plastic off to get the front cover back on. Documentation written in better English would have helped

sort of disappointed

 

like i said, 'buntu crapped after less than a week of usecomplains with the windows install disk that setup cant format the drive. i guess i learned to stay away from msi for sure if this was the box, i cant keep throwing money for wasting more hd...

took me a asmall, nice idea but

well after installing ubuntu, we crapped out not more than a week after install; not to mention windows would have a cow if there was no hd, it didnt want to even look to see what other options i had to install; couldnt trust the power button to work...

Great Little System

 

The fan, even at full speed isn't loud however, as its being throttled depending on system activity, it does have a distinct whir that can annoy some. Its honestly not a big deal to me. I use it for data backup on my network, as a print server, and...

Low power draw, even under max load ; Small form factor ; Dual core at a decent price ; Great for general use ; Quiet

2GB memory limit ; Bright blue LED power light (not really a con but, could be annoying to some) ; Fan Whir

Win7 64bit works nice. Loud fan.

 

I installed windows 7 64bit. All drivers installed automatically. Windows 7 installed in about 30 minutes. Flash video plays smoothly. I have 2GB RAM and 2qty WD20EARS 2TB hard drives installed. I used a iStarUSA DIY-RHF-03 3.5" to 5.25" Hard Drive...

Small, inexpensive, solid construction. Windows 7 64bit installed, all drivers installed automatically. Works fine with WD20EARS 2TB hard drives

Fan is loud. I can hear not just wind noise but the actual fan motor making a whirr noise. I am going to replace it with a VANTEC TF6025 60mm Case Fan. No PS2 ports, not a big deal. No eSATA but that's ok for the price

Ubuntu 9.10

 

Using as a file server and is very quick for that. Even the desktop environment is fluid. I did not try streaming or playing video to look for jerkiness, but for the size, power consumption, using 3 1/2" HDD, and price it can't be beat. Where else but...

Small, quiet, cool running. Runs Ubuntu 9.10 Linux out of the box. Construction is firm and layout is well for such a tight fit. Responsive considering such a low power processor

None with me

Vidoe Noise

 

XP-Pro. 2GB (make sure you order the correct form factor memory), I added an Intel WiFi (works fine).

Small, inexpensive, good performance for Windows workstation (Web, Word, Excel, etc)

Video noise and you can't return/replace with Newegg! If it wasn't for the video issue (and the fact Newegg won't replace it), I'd buy more, but I won't
