Summary: this was a ok board, kind of hard to set up, needed drivers that windows 7 did not have. downloading from the Zotac site was a pain, slow and had to try several times to download. Disk that comes with is useless. aside from drivers, setup was easy, just mount it and install the memory and plug in the drives. this was my second ITX motherboard install, my first was an ECS TIGT-I which I think made a better computer and was cheaper.
Summary: I can't really comment on the positive aspects of this board, as I'm still unable to install the primary hard drive, but I feel compelled to write a review on the poor support I've received from the manufacturer. I purchased this board because I believed it would do well as a fileserver.

Summary: I ordered all parts and softwares of this computer from Amazon.com.

Summary: This is probably the best little motherboard on the market for a HTPC build. I have one combined with Haup dual tuner, 3.5tb of space (1.5tb and 2tb drives), W7 home premium, 4gb ddr2 800 mem, and blu-ray drive. Has worked perfect for months while working hard 16+ hrs a day. Very cool even overclocked and actually pretty quiet. Fast enough for just about anything in the HTPC area. Handles blu-ray discs and images flawlessly. Price shop. These prices are dropping.
When things go wrong, product providers are challenged

Summary: My actual purchase was an IONITX-D-E mobo, the predecessor of this product. There is very little difference between the two (The sole difference seems to be in the PCIExpress capability, x16 versus x1). ZOTAC has informed me that they are replacing my dead D-E mobo with a G-E mobo. So, I expect that all of the other features and their performance will essentially be the same except for one: In my version (early) of the D-E, Wakeup on USB (E.g.
