Summary: works ok. one should not expect much out of it. not for gamers or transcoders. most likely issue is with skype and webcam so i would not put these against this product.
Pros: small size, plenty of ports, low power requirement.
Cons: skype leads to message about poor performance. most likely because of weak cpu. i was expecting this.
microsoft lifecam cinema webcam could not record 720p video. again most likely because of weak cpu. i was not expecting this failure.
overclocking beyond 3% as suggested by auto-tune makes it unstable.
QVL not updated. i am using 2 x 4gb gskill pair not on the QVL list. it works fine at 3% and lower overclocking.
Summary: As a headless NAS using Ubuntu 12.04 it really flies. 80+MB/Sec to a RAID 0 4TB configuration with a Second RAID0 backup but I only have one SATA slot left. Is way faster than the DLink 343 is used to have and half the price and far more expandable. As a HTPC using Windows 7 and XBMC is works well, I even added an eVGA GeForce 6200 video card so I could have the s-video out to my old Sony Trintron in the basement. Works great for Netflix. Also works with the MCE Remote.
Pros: Small form, low power, works well with ubuntu 11.12 and 12.04 as a NAS. I used Windows 7 for the XBMC HTPC. Quiet. Cheap.
Summary: Picked up this board to use in a HTPC setup. Got it up and running and it works better than I expected, it's able to play 1080 flash off the net (provided flash 10.1+ is installed for GPU acc) and I haven't had problems playing any 1080 content from an MKV yet, it's had no problems keeping up. It's quieter than the PS3 that's in the same room, it really is a nice little board. However, DO NOT USE THE PROVIDED DRIVERS, DOWNLOAD UPDATED ONES or it will give you nightmares.
Pros: Perfect for media center/home server/low power PC.
Summary: Great Noob board great media solution great board in general
Pros: Everything you can expect and then some! I've got it tweaked to 1.8 and she flys through everything! Took me 15 min to setup from box to OS install perfect media solution I'm running win 7 with 8 gigs RAM and a 1.5tb green hard drive and over clocked to 1.8 and I can't hear the thing at all great solution huge props to asus and amd on an atom killer
Cons: Does everything you should expect it to do, just don't be stupid and try and run crysis at full settings on the thing
Summary: Can view 1080p videos on youtube and runs word processing programs fine. Given it was marketed as a direct 11 graphics there was no help from the GPU whatsoever besides youtube video. Video file encoding is CPU intensive. This product is somewhere between an ATOM with a cheap GPU added but considering the cost of DDR3 ram this is an expensive upgrade with no benefit over the atom+ion boards that uses the DDR2 ram.
Pros: -Quiet operation
, -CPU and GPU all in one
Cons: -Can not output through HDMI on my 24" Lcd with 1920x1200, but can output using DVI, weird. On HDMI it has odd resolutions and the pixel can not fill the screen.
, -3DMark11 gives it a 1-2fps on graphics test, CPU test is terrible.
