Initial hardware setup is fairly simple. However, be ready with some sort of pry tool to pop the upper case panel off once the four screws are removed. Once the case is open, installation of the RAM and hard drive are fairly straightforward.
The lack of an optical disk reader makes operating system a bit more involved than in many full desktop systems. However, in the absence of a USB DVD drive, there are various applications that allow the production of suitable USB bootable flash drives for essentially any OS. A Google search for "unetbootin" will give access to a popular one. With the bootable flash drive in place, turn on the system and press F11 when the BIOS screen appears. This will open the BIOS boot menu, allowing selection of the flash drive as boot disk.
Ubuntu 12.04 installed without problems and immediately supported the included Intel wireless card.
The Windows 7 installation proved a little more challenging. The driver disk included provides support for the on board video, wireless AND wired networking, and card reader. Since both network connections are not functioning on the fresh Windows installation, and the system lacks an optical disk reader, the only way to get the drivers installed is to copy everything on the driver disk to another USB flash drive and install from that. In the end, everything works, it just takes quite a bit more time and effort than the Ubuntu installation.
Just installed a Linux and never turns off it. It's my server, and my media station, since it has HDMI and I can plug into my TV.
I asked for replacement thinking this was defective, but the next set I got had the same issue. Seems like the Video card is bad as I have used 4 of these before and worked perfectly, but looks like all 4 that I purchased recently are defective so I am sending them back for refund.
It comes with a nice array of mounting/placement options: a set of magnetic buttons that should help keep it from being casually dislodged from a metal surface, a vertical foot-thingy (that's the technical term anyway) to allow it to sit upright like a router, and a slick little bracket that has mounting holes that match up to the standard mounting holes on the back of a monitor and allows you to slide it in or out as needed.
For those that are considering this for digital signage or media playback, be aware that its max resolution is 1366x768, so it's probably not going to cut the mustard for you.
A couple things to look out for:
• If you're installing from a USB thumb drive - and you probably will be - you can't just set USB boot priority in the BIOS. It thinks a thumb drive is a hard drive so you'll have to power it up with the thumb drive in and set it to boot priority under the hdd boot priority menu. I'm embarrassed to admit how long that took me to figure out, and the documentation is pretty much non-existent.
• Then, once the Windows install has rebooted for the first time, you'll have to remove the thumb drive and reboot to the internal hard drive to finish the install, otherwise you'll be stuck in an endless loop. I got that one right away, thank you very much.
All in all, if it proves to be durable, I may start using these all the time instead of small ATX systems.
Now Foxconn uses Intel, Realtek and Atheros chip based half-mini PCIe wireless cards in their mini computers. The one I got has an Intel Centrino N 1000 card. Driver IS NOT on CD included with computer. Had to go to Intel's site and download it. Wildly fluctuating connection strength (40-130mbp/s). Found antenna wires reversed on card, swapped them-no difference. Went into driver settings and changed it from the default 20Mhz to Auto- still no difference.
BTW I have an Asus RT-N66U dual band router and ALL of the other wireless devices (2 laptops, 2 wireless desktops, iPad 2, 2 smartphones) have no problems keeping a constant speed connection in our 2 story house. This unit won't.
Reviews I found for the Centrino N 1000 show it has a history of flakey connection speed issues.
