Summary: Intel made the D865PERL socket 478 P4 boards in a variety of configurations. The one I bought is the D865PERLL, with firewire and gigabit LAN and sound on board. These boards have a few quirks with interrupts with XinXP and some tweaking might be required to determine which add-on card goes in which slot. The IRQs seem to be allocated much better and more automatically by Windows 7. I have used these boards for WinXP, Win7, Open Suse Linux, and Mint Debian Linux.
Summary: As far as the nerchant I give him a 5 star, but all D865PERL motherboards that I purchased in the past were Desktop media boards with advance sound and onboard ethernet as well as on board phone modem unfortunately this was pretty much a bare bone board. I will now have to purchase an pci ethernet device.
Summary: My computer completely died - nothing happened when the power was turned on. The Geek Squad said it was probably the mother board, and I might as well buy a whole new computer (because it was old). My concern was the network it was on and I had some professional software that would need to be updated across all the computers. Nevertheless, I took my chances, and once I changed the power supply (not the problem), I bought the used mother board on-line.
Summary: I Bought This MoBo To Replace A Fried, Intel D865PERL . I've Never Experianced A Problem With The Past MoBo Until A Powersupply Disruption Caused It's Death. The Best Part Of The Project Was, Since I Replaced A Intel D865PERL With A Intel D865PERL, I Did Not Have To Reinstall Windows.
Summary: I was very pleased with this transaction. The item was shipped promptly, and the quality was excellent. I purchased a new mother board and it was delivered in its original packaging with instructions and necessary software. Because of this, the installation was easy and it worked perfectly.
Summary: Well, replasing a motherboard always was a tought time consuming project..I bought it for $65 with Pentium 2.8gHz and cooler. That was a good deal, I think. I was trying to set up Pentium 3GHz with HT, but the board was gettiing so hot and turning off so often that it was impossible to work. My case wouldn't allow it to have better cooling, so I set its old processor back and forget about HT (for me its not a big deal anyway).
Summary: In a bind for a motherboard manufactured several years ago. Product was shipped in timely manner. Did not contain ethernet port option which was on my original board but it was not advertised with that option. Price seemed somewhat high but since I had an inoperative computer was desperate to get it fixed.
Summary: If I had know the trouble it was going to cause my computer to have this board I would not have bought it. It makes the machine much faster but at a price. It still locks up and doesn't respond on some programs and none of my old files will transfer to it. Windows had to be loaded on a new hard drive because it would not reload on the old one I guess because it tought it was on another machine. I wanted it to be faster but boy what a pain it has caused.

Excerpt: Antes de adquirir esta placa base poseia una basurilla, tambie de la marca intel, sin puerto agp para tarjeta grafica, toda una tragedia para mi. Con esta solucioné mis problemas, por fin puedo jugar con una buena calidad gafica, y ampliar con los puertos pci que posee, así como lan incorporada, y tarjeta de audio, no muy buena pero bueno, su papel hace. Opté por ella por mi procesadorun celeron, y este ocket, pues ya empieza a estar un poco anticuado la verdad.
