GB just plain out sucks!

HarPerry, Amazon
14 October 2014
  • Summary: Gigabyte is going straight down hill with their product quality. They used to make a solid, reliable product and 50+% of their MBs and components my computer manufacturing company purchases do no pass our initial testing with a good handful dieing months out. Stay away and go with MSI, Asus, and ASRock. Much more reliable for current times. We have dropped GB as a product supplier from our entire business.

OK Product, but Terrible Company

Rodman, Amazon
30 July 2013
  • Summary: Most of what's good and bad about this board has already been discussed by other reviewers so I won't repeat. I like this board but my only issue, like other people have stated, is the CPU cooling fan. It is very loud in a quiet room. Given the low current draw of the CPU, it doesn't need to be as large and loud as it is. My big issue is with Gigabyte, or more directly with the company handling their rebate purchase program.

Great little home server or firewall

G. Lyons, Amazon
17 July 2013
  • Summary: This thing is fairly compact and efficient, and it has performed very reliably over the last couple of months since I bought it. I haven't tested the audio, but all built-in peripherals like the display and network adapters work well with Linux. I wish the PCI slot were PCIe, but I knew that when I bought it.

Awesome ITX

Steve A. Krall, Amazon
14 June 2013
  • Summary: $80 dollars for a motherboard with a CPU installed and 2 x Gigabit Ethernet ports. And it supports up to 16 Gig of memory. I was able to intsall VMware ESXi and the Realtek NICs were recognized automatically. I also installed Backtrack 5 and tested the Gig ports, about 360M was my max speed. I also installed WinXP and tested Netflix. It was the best playback I have seen compared to an Atom 510/525 or the AMD E350.

Awsome board for a HTPC

N. R. "Handy Mandy", Amazon
7 June 2013
  • Summary: This board is special, which is quite small, faster than an Atom board, have lower power usage than regular board + CPU, quiet even with the cpu fan, fits into 1u case with ease. If you find a good brand solid wattage above 120 watt small size. I have a slim size case with 140Watt and that did work fine. For a dual core, dual channel memory, cheap price I cannot complain. Pay attention some have issues with lesser wattage or not accurate PSU wattage given.

Not impressed

Thomas Rexford, Amazon
31 May 2013
  • Summary: I bought this board to replace an older Mini-itx that is running XP service pack 1 with some legacy programs that only work with SP1. Couldn't get XP to load and after contacting Gigabyte service determined that this board will only run XP service pak 2. Two NIC's is nice feature. Not all that impressed with performance however. Other AMD E-350 boards I have get same Windows experience Index and feel just as fast.

Only works with full power supply

Twinclouds, Amazon
4 May 2013
  • Summary: I bought this one for a small low power home media system. However, when I use a small 120 watt power supply, it never starts correctly. The fan kept on and off but the machine never booted into the bios screen nor looked for operating system. Then I replaced the power supply with a 160 watt pico ATX power supply, the same thing happened. BTW, these two power supplies works fine with AMD E350 based mother boards.
