Summary: This board was easy to install, working perfectly. The ASUS M2N68-AM that stopped working (couldn't even boot into the BIOS screen) was larger than this board, having expansion slots I wasn't using, and IDE for a DVD that I occasionally used. I only used DVD for re-installing the operating system anyway, and now with this board I should be able to do that from usb, or just buy a $25 SATA DVD burner.
Summary: Product was defective, seller did refund my money fast due to the inconvenience, and received a fast refund transaction. Maybe I got a bad Apple out of the bunch, but I can't really rate the product of its performance, and only my experience with the defect.
Summary: When a friend had a mini HP computer die from overheating, I had to help and the Zotac GeForce 6100 Mini ITX AMD Motherboard provided the best replacement and at the lowest price. The only other item that I needed to buy was a power supply adapter to convert from HP's mini connector to a conventional 20 pin connector. Oh yes. a better cpu cooling fan to provide better cooling. The owner is happy and Amazon prices and availability of a good product saved the day.
Summary: I bought this motherboard to build a tiny computer that would be capable of running Microsoft Windows Server (64-bit) operating system. Even though I'm a big fan of NVIDIA GeForce, in this particular case was not interested in motherboard's graphic capabilities, nor software RAID functionality. Windows Server 2003 x64: installation of the operating system goes smoothly, but you end up with no network interface.
Summary: I've built a computer using this motherboard, and another computer using the same chipset. Pros: - Inexpensive MITX motherboard for about 50% of what most AMD motherboards this size cost. - Stable Cons: - Only supports 65W processors and below - Onboard video is dated. - VGA output only, no DVI or HDMI on this board, and no way to add them. Most boards this size (MITX) are designed with HTPC users in mind or for use in small nettop sized computers.
Summary: I have had this running now for about six months. For the cpu I used an AMD Athlon II X2 255 dual core processor at 3.1 ghz with 2 GB ram. I loaded windows XP operating system. The system works great. It is currently being used as a desktop pc and as a media center. I am able to view/download movies from the web with no problem and watch them on HDTV.
Summary: This is quite a feature rich board for a mini-ITX; although it could use a little more in the feature department. As far as the basics go it's really nice, more SATA headers than you could ever need in a mini-ITX pc, plenty of USB ports and decent on board graphics. Although a PCI-e slot would be nice for expanding graphics capability, but since I am using this in our warehouse to print package labels and reports, it's not entirely necessary.
