    Reviews are all over the place with Qotom. Some have devices lasting a long time, others lasted a few weeks. The people with warranty issues seemed to have a hard time getting it fixed or refunded. I stuck with protectli since they are at least in the U.S. Brent has always been helpful.

    I've been running a Qotom Thin Mini PC with Intel Celeron j1900 Processor onboard, Quad core 2.42 GHz, 4GB RAM 64GB SSD, Dual LAN Dual Display Serial Port(seriously, no idea what model number) since 2016. I ran PFSense on it until they really started pushing the AES-NI, so I switched over to Untangle with a home license, and then they relayed that AES-NI wouldn't be implemented with 2.5. By then I was balls deep with Untangle, and I like it. Yes I miss PFBlocker. Anyway, right now I am running my Lan, and three VLANS with webfilter, SSL Inspector, and an OpenVPN connection, and it typically runs at 22% memory(8gb) and .02% cpu utilization. For $176US I really can't complain.
    I think just like with anything else, YMMV.

    edit, forgot to add IPS as well. No freaking issues.

    pfblocker will be useless when it comes to DNS blocking as DOH becomes more mainstream.

    I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen

    I had 8 in my Qotom also - ran great ... then I had a laptop with only 4 that needed 8, so I swapped the RAM between the two. Untangle ran great with 4 too. Then the laptop died ... so I cannibalized the good parts ... and put the 8 back in my Untangle Qotom box.

    Not sure on current RAM prices but at the time there was like $20-30 difference between the 8GB and 4GB versions, so I just got the 8GB.

    I built my home system on an Intel Atom D525 board from SuperMicro (X7SPE-HF-D525), with 4 GB of RAM, a 1U rack-mount chassis, 110GB Corsair SSD, and Dual Intel Pro/1000 NIC. All parts available from NewEgg for a decent price.
