Great for Home Server but if you need more horsepower look for other options!

  • Summary: Great board and product. Today I miss to not have more horsepower but at that time it was the right choice for me for the price point.

power sipping and good enough for all but the most picky videophiles (and streaming video users)

plonk420 "music, music video, computer freak", Amazon

  • Summary: this is a near perfect HTPC device. i have this in a SilverStone ML03B case with an Arctic Cooling 120mm PWM fan blowing down on the heat sink to cool it. it's ridiculously quiet. via the right player, you can offload pretty much all h.264 decoding to GPU. and of course, xvid and (deinterlaced) mpeg-2 content will play just fine. only dumb encoders with stupid quality settings may give you playback issues, but that's one in a hundred encodes you come across.

My Killer HTPC Build

E. Tucker, Amazon
22 July 2013
  • Summary: This board has been running strong for a month. Records 1080 off two tuners and plays recorded at the same time. It's also very quiet. Here's the memory I put in it.

Great value for basic desktop or modest HTPC

Ronny Ong, Amazon
29 June 2013
  • Summary: I had an 8 year old desktop die, but I didn't want to chuck the whole thing because its mATX case was really nice. On the other hand, I didn't want to spend much on turning the case into a decent general-purpose system for light usage as a non-primary computer. This product worked perfectly. It's modern/well-equipped in terms of having USB 3.0, Gb Ethernet, and SATA 6Gbs.

Great board

Amazon Customer, Amazon
5 December 2012
  • Summary: I use it for a FreeNas box. It works great. Been using it for freenas for about a year now and have had zero issues. I did use it for XBMC Media Center for a few months and it worked great for that too! Asus makes great boards!

Its a great board in a micro ATX size

Stretch, Amazon
24 November 2012
  • Summary: This board has everything a "pro" board should have squeezed into a very small space. eSATA, USB 3.0, SATA 3. And the BIOS is very easy to use for even a beginner. If I had to look for faults the only one I could find is the included CPU fan. The power connection on the board is for a 4 pin CPU fan. The supplied fan is three pin and miniscule. Sure, its absolutely silent. But I'll take thermal control over quiet any time.

Good with one caveat

Andrew Dyer, Amazon
14 October 2012
  • Summary: I'm running OpenBSD as a firewall on this board and it has been running well. I had one problem where I managed to confuse the BIOS settings to the point where there was no video output. Once I cleared the CMOS (it took a few minutes to clear - be patient) it recovered and has been running fine since.

Perfect for a Home File Server

Ian Doyle, Amazon
28 September 2012
  • Summary: With its 5 internal SATA III ports and low power consumption this motherboard makes a great home file server. It does not include Fake RAID so you'll have to use software RAID. This shouldn't really be an issue unless you're looking to dual-boot, which probably shouldn't be a concern for a file server. I've been running it with the current Ubuntu releases. I am having issues booting off of any drive by default.

The E35M1-M Eats Mice and Keyboards

Drake-by-the-Lake "movie critic", Amazon
21 September 2012
  • Summary: To date, I have lost 2 keyboards and 3 mice due to this motherboard. I have been building systems since '98 and never seen anything like it. If you log onto the manufacturer web site, you will see ASUS has released several BIOS updates to "improve USB compatibility," which indicates they are aware of the problem. Their motherboard eats USB devices. Trying to get ASUS warranty service is a time-waster. I spend two hours on their web site.

Great with Ubuntu

L. Stanton, Amazon
29 July 2012
  • Summary: This works well with Ubuntu 12-04 64-bit and 4GB RAM. I have not tried any other OS. I have not tried USB3, firewire, or LAN.
