Good basic board.

Tony Nguyen, Amazon
8 April 2014
  • Summary: Used for HTPC build. Good basic board, no issues with it after a year. Paired with a G540 gpu and Windows 7, XBMC has no problems playing HD content. No USB3 (I should have paid more attention when buying).

When it works - it works well...

jwcjr, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this ECS motherboard in Jan of 2013, but I wanted to see how well it did before deciding on writing a review. The board has a tiny footprint and easily fits inside of an ATX case with a lot of room to spare; I paired the board with the Intel G540 Celeron processor, and a 4 GB stick of Corsair XMS3 PC 10666 ram. Despite being a small form factor, the layout was well configured and the installation of components was trouble free.

Replaced my Atom D510MO for HTPC purposes

M. Lee, Amazon
19 January 2014
  • Summary: Finally took the leap and decided it was time to upgrade from the Atom 1.6GHz system to a Celeron G1610 with this motherboard. Installed Win7 and connected to my home network and it all works. The fan is a little loud but you can get a quieter fan, the one that comes with the Celeron G1610. Other than that, it works well and now the response to remote control commands for WMC is very good.

Great board for small htpc builds

Thomas Ryans, Amazon
31 December 2013
  • Summary: Used this board a small htpc and it performs much better than I anticipated. With 4gb ram, intel celeron processor and a 60gb ssd, it outperforms my old core 2 quad htpc which has an asus rampage formula board that was far more expensive.

DOA

Derrick, Amazon

  • Summary: Used this board for a budget HTPC build. I could get no display out of the VGA or HDMI ports on multiple monitors/TV's. Contacted technical support for further troubleshooting and followed their advice and still not work. Sending back for a refund.

Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS Server

Casey Friday, Amazon
16 November 2013
  • Summary: Using this as the mobo for an Ubuntu NAS I built to stream content to Plex clients, host backups for two Apple laptops, and possibly serve as extra storage in the future. The board is good, and it has a nice interface for the BIOS. The only thing against it is no USB3 headers, but I solved that buy purchasing a PCIe x1 USB3 card with 5 ports on back and headers for the two case ports on my Fractal Node 304.

Great for HTPC

cwide, Amazon
13 September 2013
  • Summary: I have bought two of these and both of them have been working perfectly. One runs a 24/7 Windows 7 server and the other runs Openelec connected to my TV. I put a Celeron G1610 on both boards. I have yet to have any problems with them and it is by far the cheapest ITX board with HDMI which makes it perfect for a SFF HTPC. I haven't had any of the HDMI port problems others have mentioned.
