    Default QOTOM Hardware Question

    With AES-NI on the CPU being required by some firewalls you may be better off with the I5 as the J1900 does not have it.

    Not sure if Untangle uses it or will eventually require it but having it should (fingers crossed) future proof you a little while longer.

    Not sure on the price differences though between the I5 and J1900 units. $300 +- $50 depending on configuration seems fairly reasonable for the I5 though.

    All,

    There are other lower power Intel CPU like N3160 or N3450 that are 4 core/64 bit and AES-NI. These are available on several vendors mini PCs, like Jetway and Zotac.

    Yes there are.

    I wasn't interested in minimum power, though, so didn't bother with the N3xxx line as they weren't that much cheaper than the i5 QOTOM, especially if you want >2 NICs.... And the i5 is much *more* powerful.

    Add me to the I5 Qotom list. It does not get any warmer than the J1900 Qotom I had. Granted I5 does come in a larger case.

    LAN ports are not in order as what Untangle lists them. Mine are 0, 2, 3, 1.

    For home use this guy should hopefully keep me good to the sub gigabit level and future hardware requirements (fingers crossed). I can hopefully sit on this guy for the next 5 years or so.
