    Better than You Think

    It is the most reasonably priced Motherboard. There are 4 USB 2.0 & 2 USB 3.0 on the back panel. Both Memory Slots work but the instructions say that if you are only going to use 1 slot, use the slot farthest from the APU. The SATA Ports (2) ... Read more

    It's fine

    No Windows XP support, VGA Port *WAY* too close to USB 3.0 ports. I can't use the USB 3.0 ports because I'm using the VGA port and the cable gets in the way. Read more

    5 out of 5 eggs Board works great, at least in my build

    Pros: Lowest-priced ITX board with an AM1 socket

    Cons: None that I could find.

    Bottom Line: I was a little wary of the negative reviews, but I figured for the price I'd take a chance. My build is this Board, an AMD Athlon 5350, 4 GB Kingston Value RAM, 120GB Kingston SSD, and Windows 7 Professional. Comes with a drivers disc - all the drivers installed without a hitch. This is by far the best value out there for a basic ITX build when paired with an AMD 5350 processor. Only thing to BEWARE is that if you only have 1 stick of ram, be sure to put it in SLOT 2, I put mine in SLOT 1 and it wouldn't boot. Moved to slot 2 and it fired right up. Boot time was incredibly fast, the WIndows 7 logo didn't even finish its animation and next thing I know I'm at the desktop.

    5 out of 5 eggs It works

    Pros: I used ECS boards back in the early 2000's and had nothing but problems with them. 2 out of 5 were junk. So I was a little apprehensive about going with ECS again. But for the price, newegg's eggcelent return policy I figured why not.
    It worked! had heard that ECS has been working hard on improving their quality.
    For this little build for a client with limited funds she had I needed to keep costs under $200. This board, CPU, case, memory all worked out great.
    May have to consider using ECS more.

    Cons: complete garbage.... should have known, used ECS back in the early 90's, they were junk then, still are. this is an update, had this board a little over a year now and it took a dump.. BIOS needs reset and cleared almost weekly now. Submitted a RMA request a week ago and as of yet not heard a thing from ECS, guess they do not believe in customer service? or to swamped dealing with all the other RMA issues from their garbage main boards? I don't know, just know this will be my last ECS board.
    cheaper to just go buy a new board rather then having to pay return shipping costs for a $23 board and having this little computer down for a week or so while ECS takes their sweet time getting a replacement to me...

    Bottom Line: AVOID like the plague!!

    4 out of 5 eggs Great little board for HTPC

    Pros: Small form factor, ITX, price, USB 3.0, PCIe port, support Windows very well (7 and above), very fast coupled with 5350 AMD Kabini, 32GB (not sure how though) capable.

    Cons: Impossible to get 1600MHz with my memory, no XMP detection.

    Bottom Line: No matter what I do, setting manually the memory to 1600MHz the computer has a black screen at reboot. I need to reset the CMOS in oder to get going. Works well at 1333MHz though.

    1 out of 5 eggs someone is smarter than me

    Pros: none

    Cons: New build, switched with msi itx and can not get a blue screen. All components bought new at Newegg. Replacement does not give a display either. Sys fan goes but no hdmi or vga feed.

    Bottom Line: No one knows what is happening. Called local repair shop and they are not able to refresh bios.

    Manufacturer Responses:

    We are sorry to hear about the issues you are experiencing with your motherboard. Prior to shipping from our factory, all motherboards are tested to ensure that they are working properly. A DOA issue can be caused by any of the main components, including CPU, memory, power supply and motherboard. If possible we would recommend testing the motherboard in the following fashion. Remove the motherboard from the case, with only CPU, CPU fan, memory and power supply connected. Place on a flat non static surface. Reseat the CPU. Test with only one memory at a time and reseat memory. Ensure that both the 24 pin and 4 pin (ATX12V) connections are connected from the power supply. Connect the power button from the case or short the power pins (6 and 8) to power on the system. If still have any issues or questions, please contact us and we can work with you to find a solution. I or any of my team members here at technical support will be able to help you. Our hours are Mon-Fri 9am-6pm PST. Thank you, Andy Phone# 1- 510-456-9836 Email: andy_K@ecsusa.com

    5 out of 5 eggs Nice board for an entertaianment center

    Pros: Runs super with 25w and cool in AZ abeyant temp 80f its running 15c-20c under a load. HDMI, mini pci slot. loaded with G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL7D-4GBXH of ram with timings set at 7-7-7-14. I went with the 5150 AM1 1.6 quad core cpu

    Cons: not a con because almost all only have 2 sata ports

    Bottom Line: No problems with the 2 I have bought. just make sure when you get a case it fits most of the mini atx cases choke off the fan to the cpu or the ram is to tall. best to be on the safe side and get a reg case for it and it will stay awesomely cool

    4 out of 5 eggs Great board

    Pros: Install was seemless! Installed win 7 pro and upgraded to win 10 no issues. Installed with 5350, 240g ssd and 8g Mushkin ddr3L. I would recommend 8 gigs as when updating and installing i was using 6 gb+ and it took a while. READ THE DIRECTIONS PEOPLE. It clearly states that ram slot two for a single stick.

    Cons: None other than the dual serial/com ports. Could have used more usbs or just leftoff the board

    Bottom Line: If this comes available again i would buy another just to tinker with. Video seems capable of streaming for online videos and streaming services. Great for htpc and internet browsing. I was going for low power so i used one simgle stick as this board does not support dual channel as well as an ssd. Have not hooked up thru watt meter yet to test yet

    2 out of 5 eggs Could be better

    Pros: Good price for this little board with on-board HDMI.

    Cons: Bad Ram 1 Slot. Put this together for a Christmas Present but when I started it for the first time only fans came on, no mobo outputs (video, usb, etc.). After trouble shooting Power supply, Processor, and ram, found out that #1 ram slot is bad on mobo. plugged ram into #2 slot with all original hardware i installed and came alive. I read other reviews stating same problem with this mobo.

    Bottom Line: You might want to update bios if you have this mobo, I have read many people are having errors until they do.

    4 out of 5 eggs Surprisingly well built

    Pros: Price, I wanted to get something low cost to play with Pfsense and found this board it has a pcie x16 unlike a lot of the other m-itx boards that only have x1 or x2 slots.

    Cons: mini pcie doesnt support mini sata, it doesn't have a mini sata or m.2 socket

    Bottom Line: for the price $(30) this board is hard to beat for just surfing the web or word processing. I am happy with this purchase I installed windows 7 on it first just to see how well it responded and besides the graphics I can’t complain at all . I am glad I did not read the reviews before I purchased this as it was only $30 because the experience I had is way different than most.

    1 out of 5 eggs Bought 2 and both weren't working right.

    Pros: Price, none else.

    Newegg took care of me. :D

    Cons: I never wrote bad review because i never seen anything this bad.

    I bought 2 of them and loaded both with windows 7 and had multiple errors crashes, shutdowns, when putting computer to sleep would go to sleep and never wake up unless restart.
    In Bios after the most recent bios update, I would change ram speed to 1600Mhz and it wouldn't post or go back into bios! had to pull the battery on both boards to get back into bios. and same issue when trying to mess with cpu speed.

    Bottom Line: If they send me one for free to earn my trust back then id pay for it after if it worked good. then would take down this review.

    i just never seen such a bad motherboard and like i said both brand new and both did same thing. I used 3x psu 2x cpus 4x ram sticks and all same results!
