Summary: I bought this because after a bit more than a year, my stopped working. That one is a good board, and sometimes boards fail, but even with an existing warranty it's impossible to get a computer up and running in a timely fashion without buying something new.
Summary: It works great for my NAS build. with 6 SATA connections, I will never need an card to support my drives. It fits great into my BitFenix mini-ITX case with plenty of space for a Noctua CPU cooler and case fans.

Summary: If you wanna stable ITX mini white box NAS/VM server this one is the infrastructure. Rock solid components, and 6 SATA ports for HDD expandability. It supports intel VT-d so you can passthrough your Ati GPU to your virtual machine. You can install Vmware ESX 5.
Summary: So far, I've been very impressed with this board. I used this to run a Hyper-V server / NAS, and it works well for this application. This was the first time I had worked with a mini-ITX board, and it's amazing the amount of features that can be included on such a tiny board.
Summary: Perfect little motherboard for my home server build. Needed a solution with plenty of sata connections and the ability to possibly reuse down the road for an HTPC build. Great price on this board as well.
