Re: Evo ECOPC: A Silent Nettop

the ECOPC used about 2W more on average. This is likely due to a less efficient power supply. The T1610 shipped with a Seasonic DC brick. Hmm... We considered its size, because higher power DC brick is bigger than our one, but we'll re-test power supply and be looking for more energy efficient powe...

Thanks for the review. An ssd version would have been nice for your review :) Idling at one meter's distance, the machine measured just 17 dBA. Turning the fan completely off resulted in just a 1 dB increase, with the hard drive being the only noise producer. If you turn the fan off, the noise goes...

Re: Evo ECOPC: A Silent Nettop

Some other companies (I heard about a couple in the UK alone if I recall correctly) have built PCs based on the D945GSEJT . I think UK companies you mentioned are Aleutia (http://www.aleutia.com) and LinITX(http://linitx.com). For those wanting an expensive energy-efficient x86 router, the fit-PC2i...

Re: Evo ECOPC: A Silent Nettop

There is only one nonessential setting, the minimum fan speed, which can be set to "low" or "off." The setting is bit of a misnomer — "off" turns the fan off completely; it will not turn on at all no matter how hot things get.

Why not install a slim 80 mm fan instead? Should provide enough airflow and at the same time be quiet enough and won't take up that much space.

Re: Evo ECOPC: A Silent Nettop

Thanks for review.
We'll provide Mini PCIe Wireless LAN card and Broadcom Crystal HD decoder as option, soon.
And, I think if you disable Compiz effect and use hard drive spin-down option of Ubuntu, you may be able to reduce a little power consumption.
