Summary: I gave this mobo a four star only because as a Linux user, the built in ATI video controller does not have a suitable matching driver for it. I only had to utilize the pciex slot to install a Nvidia card I had from my old build. Everything is fine, and I have more than enough power for my needs.
Summary: the first one would not support any video. after returning it I purchased different memory (DDR3 8 Gb the first time, DDR3 4Gb the second) the replacement motherboard would not accept the 8Gb either ? it's suppose to support 16Gb but ?
Summary: Bought this all-in-one gem for a dedicated HTPC build for a convention I work at and was very happy overall with the build and quality of this board. Not only does it integrate all the standard video connectors (VGA, DVI, and HDMI) but it also has 7.1 sound and even a digital out via spdif, too so...
Summary: Bought this to build a storage box, and it's really solid so far. I've had some video driver issues with the latest Debian wheezy, but it worked fine with Ubuntu Precise Pangolin (12.04) and Debian 6 (squeeze).
Summary: I've been using this as a very basic HTPC in the bedroom. Overall this unit works as it should. Keep in mind that it is buit upon lower end hardware so don' expect miracles. If you need a simple all in one board, this is the board to get. Also, this board runs great using Windows 8
Summary: I bought this to build a new linux box (ubuntu), and start off a serious file server. I have this machine on 24/7 and have experienced very few problems so far. It seems to do everything that its specs suggest - though i'm not being too demanding on it since it is just a big storage box to hang off...
Summary: I had a Western Digital WD TV Live Plus 1080p HD Media Player . That was useful, but not so flexible as a full fledged computer. So I wanted to build my own HTPC for connecting to my TV ( TCL L40FHDF11TA 40-Inch 1080p 60 Hz LCD HDTV with 2-Year Warranty, Black ).
