Summary: Order plenty of these with no problems. Its a low-powered, light weight board... for simple task. Video playback and flash games work fine! Wouldn't suggest much of any other kind of gaming on it though. Def order 4-6 GB RAM for it, it'll make a huge difference. Works great with Win7. (probably with Win8 too... though I wont recommend 8 for the life of me! I do like the CPU fan on this one the most, compared to the other mini itx boards.
Summary: Its a great package. I set up mine with Windows 7 All In One 64 Bit with 4GB ram and a SSD Drive. Its a good small desk top. The only issue I have with it, is it does not playback full HD video well while streaming, like Netflix HD. Netflix with HD disabled works fine. Its great for a web surfing machine and office work. For the $75 or so that it cost, its a great machine for my wife. I used it with the following case/power supply combo HEC ITX200A Mini ITX.
Pros: Small, lower power, works fine for secondary system or light desktop. Has UEFI but also works in BIOS mode. Works fine with Linux. Oh, and reasonably inexpensive, too.
Cons: BIOS races towards boot too quickly, makes it exciting trying to catch it working blind because the LCD hasn't sync'd and unblanked yet. Not an issue once everything is configured; then it's a plus, especially with the system on an SSD partition.
Pros: Pros: Fast Boot. Super Quiet Fan. 4 Sata II ports. Dual Bios (Bios Backup - really works.) Mini-Itx size. Low Power draw. No Drama. Recommended build for XPEnology. 3 Year Warranty. Way faster than my old Atom (running WHS 2011.)
Cons: Cons: PCI slot, not PCIe. Realtek Lan (8111E) instead of Intel on HIgher end boards. No speaker (for Bios error codes - oh wait, this is UEFI bios, maybe that's why?) No USB3 (but I don't need it.) Capacitors seem cheaper than what I'm used to with Gigabyte boards. They don't look like the Quality Japanese caps from other Gigabytes.
Summary: Pros: Fast Boot. Super Quiet Fan. 4 Sata II ports. Dual Bios (Bios Backup - really works.) Mini-Itx size. Low Power draw. No Drama. Recommended build for XPEnology. 3 Year Warranty. Way faster than my old Atom (running WHS 2011.) From the Comments Section: XPEnology has been Nothing but stable, even after a power outage. My build is XPEnology DS3612xs DSM 4.2 build 3211++. Power usage 55.5 watts with 4 HDD, and PSU is a Seasonic SS-300TGW 300W RT.
Summary: I have been using 3 of these for about 4 months. 2 are used as headless Win XP servers at remote sites for video recording and telemetry uploading and they work great. Low power consumption and 100% reliability so far. I use 1 as a remote workhorse to log into from work and it handles all my needs just great. I run them with 2gygs or ram. The 3rd unit I built for my wife that does basic computing, internet, MS word and Excel, some picture editing, and video play back.
Summary: I recently acquired this Gigabyte GA-E350N motherboard in order to replace an MSI unit that was in use for some time (3+) years. that was supposed to be a drop in replacement. However, after spending a solid week of my time trying to get it to work in what should have been a 15 minute swap job, I finally threw in towel after discovering the source of my woes, the integrated Video chipset.
Summary: Owned this board for about a month now and so far everything is working great. Only complaint is that it has no PCI-Express expansion slot if I ever want to upgrade my video graphics. I guess its my fault for not paying closer attention to EVERY SINGLE LITTLE DETAIL when buying a product or maybe they could list the important stuff instead of listing all these incomprehensible letters and numbers like "AMD E-350D APU A45 FCH Mini ITX DDR3 1333 Motherboard and all this...
