I have this nettop and I ran into a huge problem that took me a VERY long time to figure out. Mind you, this is a GREAT deal, but I had some major networking issues with the built-in LAN. I went as far as testing my entire network, cabling, jacks, switches, patch cables, etc. The problem was that when pulling data down from shares on my network, the file transfer would stop for 5-10sec increments, on and off, but the LAN connection was still live.
The short answer? Do NOT use the LAN driver by Foxconn. While it may work for many of you, God knows if you'll end up with my problem. The Wi-Fi on the other hand works completely fine. You can find the drivers directly from Realtek (the maker of the LAN chipset). PM me if you need more help.
And for those of you that may want this in white, or in a combo deal with a slim DVD writer, it's $30 more here. It looks like the same exact thing, only white and the DVD writer.
This thread is actually a repost (Selma? Whodathunkit!)
But mainly, it's been this price recently.
There was much excitement March 16th.
Today, same price, not so much.
6/4 White w/ DVD $179.99 (White NT-A3500 @$150 + $30 off the matching DVD)
6/1 "Starts 6/4" [/URL]$150Discombobulated beats Selma by 58 hours, lol. Go big D!
5/29 Atom D525 version $129 (Intel GMA 3150 "graphics" - no comparison)
3/26 w/ Intel 520 60GB SSD $214.98 Popular deal
3/16 $150 Frontpage deal. Popular deal.
12/27/2011 $157.49 bundle w/free USB DVD burner and 15% code from e-mail.
...and probably more.
I fell for the Intel 520 bundle.
I like these. I can see getting another one (that I don't need), but not for $150 again.
I dont know; it doesnt have mvc acceleration like a desktop 6000 chipset but im guessing if the mkv is h264 it would play accelerated?
I struggled to get the HD6310 to play my 1080p MKV files without blasting out the CPU and causing a bottleneck (thus, choppiness). I tried Shark007's codecs and also CoreAVC.
I couldn't get it to work correctly... UNTIL... I installed XBMC. I used to use Media Portal and adjust the codecs there, but I think I fell in love with XBMC. It runs everything like a champ!! I mostly watch H264 MKV and WMV. Crisp and clear.
