Summary: A sturdy little ITX motherboard / cpu combo. I purchased this guy to run my XBMC media player at home back on 6/11/12 and as of 11/18/2014 it's been doing just fine. It plays SD and HD videos without any issue and runs the embeded OpenELEC distro swimmingly.
Summary: Waited 2 weeks for this board to arrive via NZ PO box. Excitedly removed and installed carefully. All was well with windows 7 until after 30 minutes it died and stopped producing any display. Await refund etc.
Summary: I sent this to India for my brother to use. According to his feedback, no major difference between this setup and his original dual core - for normal browsing and video watching functions which is the main reason for getting this board.
Summary: I was looking for a PSU CPU combo board and this fit the bill. For an Atom this thing is quite fast and the bios supports over clocking to 2.13 Ghz (from the stock 1.63) In combination with a 10,000RPM drive you really can't beat this combo for a HTPC build.
Excerpt: Hallo liebe Lesenden, Was also tun ? Bis Weihnachten Filme am PC oder überhaupt nicht mehr anschauen ? NO WAY !! Nun sollte es doch eigentlich keine Hexerei sein, einen leistungsfähigen, sparsamen, leisen, schicken und trotzdem kompakten Mediaplayer mit Netzwerkanschluss selbst zu bauen.
Pros: Günstig, sehr leistungsfähig bei HD Wiedergabe, passiv gekühlt, sparsam
Cons: Atom 230 ist etwas schwach für normale PC Anwendungen
