iFixIt Tears Down the Boxee Box

iFixIt has performed its teardown on the Boxee Box by D-Link.

The Boxee Box is a cubist deviation from the traditionally rectangular set-top box. The oddly-shaped form factor forced D-Link to make the internals equally odd. But that also made it super fun to take apart!

● The Mini PCI-E wireless card employs a Broadcom BCM4319XKUBG
● Intel Atom CE4110 SOC processor
● Nanya 1035 NT5CB128MCN-CG 512 MB DDR3 SDRAM (1/2 total RAM capacity)
● Toshiba NF3662 TC58NVG3S0ETA00 1 GB NAND Flash

Boxee Box Repairability: 7 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)
● The Boxee has a separate power board that can be replaced independently from the motherboard, should it ever fail.
● All Phillips screws were used inside the device, requiring you to have just one screwdriver.
● Once inside, all components come apart pretty logically.
● The green rubber bottom of the Boxee Box is difficult to remove, and will never look the same once you've removed it.
