I'm a new N299 user about for three weeks. Basically I'm satisfied with N299, but I have/had lot of problems with it. The first problem was the following the ns200 has terrible noisy fan. I tried to set the lower speed mode, but it remained noisy. So, I looked an ultra silent fan and replaced the original.
I have read from somewhere the bad speed performance and the spin down problems. I don't have gigabit net and I don't have big problem abut the speed but It's not a good news for my future LAN improving. The spin down problem is a really problem but not a big for me.
I have more problems: -the download management is very dunce. The biggest problem for me I can set the download speed separately for every task but I can't set a global download speed for the all task. So I have to calculate the speed for all tasks one by one.
