Reliable as HTPC

JH "JH", Amazon
21 March 2015
  • Summary: I've kept this workhorse running as an HTPC (XBMC on Windows 7) for 5 years now. It has remained future proof after all this time. The specs are modest by modern standard, but this motherboard has proven to be very reliable and I run at about 24 watts.

Very good Product

Raghu, Amazon

  • Summary: It is almost 3 years I have been using this HTPC and so far no issues. Of course I am not using it as my regular PC but just to play home videos and YouTube videos. It has problems while playing netflix 1080p videos.

Pretty good for my homemade NAS

J. Wang, Amazon
12 August 2011
  • Summary: I planned to build my own Network Attached Storage (NAS) and decided on using this board because of the low power Atom CPU and also because I thought the ION graphics might allow me to use this to stream to my HDTV some day.

Nice Design, but Not Powerful enough.. :-(

Kihim Carr, Amazon
1 August 2011
  • Summary: Nicely designed little board however, the Intel Atom @ 1.6Ghz and the Nvidia ION 330 could not handle playback of blu-ray (m2ts) files while running XBMC. Additionally, the hardware does not support bitstreaming of DTS-HD or True HD without the use of FFDSHOW and Media Player Classic Home Cinema...

Using as Boxee HTPC

Jose Buzo, Amazon
12 May 2011
  • Summary: This is a good board but my opinion is don't use windows 7 on it. I know a lot of people wouldn't think about using windows 7 on an Atom chip but i really wanted it for the Windows Media Center feature but i quickly found out that windows 7 OS + WMC = 2 resource hogs.

Well poopy...

J. Nelson, Amazon
15 February 2011
  • Summary: I bought this board almost a year ago and yesterday it died. I was using the system as a HTPC, the family was watching TV when it shutoff, try'd to power back on no love, try'd 3 different PSU no love. I was finally able to get it to power up but only got grafx errors and a lockup.

Great MythTV Front end machine

Troy Beisigl, Amazon
13 February 2011
  • Summary: I ordered up this board to test as a compact machine to be used as a front end mythTV DVR machine. This machine works great as such. I loaded mythbuntu 10.10 64bit with all the nVidia drivers to take full advantage of Cuda cores for HD video decoding.

Good little board

S. Price, Amazon
30 November 2010
  • Summary: Was looking for a board to make a htpc, this seemed the ideal choice as it was completely fanless and with the ion chipset so can play 1080p content. Great board, I did put it in a fanless case but it just felt a bit too hot for me so I think definitely some airflow is needed..

  • Summary: I originally bought this board a year ago to build a replacement home desktop computer. I put it in an Antec ISK300 case -- and I have loved the small package. It has been working great. I just bought my second to build a roughly identical system for someone else.

Great Linux HDTV box

Steve, Amazon
9 October 2010
  • Summary: I've been running Ubuntu on it for months now, connected to the big-screen TV as the default monitor via the HDMI cable. Very stable and flexible unit (lot's of IO on the back panel as well as the 16X slot). The box is happy with a slew of 2TB disks attached.
