    Surprised!

    Great price! Has two PWM fan headers and fan speed can be fine tuned. This thing sips power, I'm using a 300 watt Seasonic which I realize now is laughably overkill. It supports uefi booting, which was a surprise to me. I was expecting the old ... Read more

    5 out of 5 eggs Mine worked fine

    Pros: I keep seeing a lot of reviews of this that say they're so iffy but mine worked perfectly, the only issue I had was when I tried to used a 1x to 16x adapter to add a video card but then again this is not made for that, the celeron is surprisingly good in a normal desktop enviroment but I would suggest only using something like this for tiny servers/routing(pfsense) or maybe a small nas where you dont needs lots of ram, like not for ZFS stuff

    Cons: While I said it wasn't neccesary it would be cool if this did work with a video card with an adapter (it might, it could have been my card) also I wish this had more memory slots as I do believe the chip supports dual channel and you do ever so slightly notice it when it's missing.

    1 out of 5 eggs All I did was throw $40 dollars down the drain

    Pros: None

    Cons: The memory would not fit it kept sliding out I have never had this problem in the 20 years I have been building computers. ECS never again.

    4 out of 5 eggs nice low power mobo

    Pros: With 4GB RAM and an SSD this is a very quick system for running Ubuntu.
    Lots of BIOS setup options for fans, etc.
    Quality components

    Cons: CPU heatsink could be a bit larger. In a small case without any fans the CPU temperature rises quickly into the 55C range when idle and ~65C maxed out with Prime95. I may try to put a quiet fan in the case to help it out.
    Picky about memory. Consult the ECS website for a list of recommended SODIMMs but note that many/most of these DD3/L modules are difficult to find new. Newegg had none of the 4GB or 8GB modules in stock. Picked up a used 4GB SODIMM.

    2 out of 5 eggs Pay attention to the memory

    Pros: If you have working memory it's a good board. It's capable of youtube in 1080p, runs ubuntu fairly quick. stays fairly cool, and fits well in an antec ISK110.

    Cons: Works with some junk no-name memory I pulled out of an old HP laptop. Doesn't work with good/tested crucial ddr3l 8gb dimm. No post screen, no amount of fiddling with the settings in the bios (with the good memory) will get it to post.

    Bottom Line: Don't buy it if you have parts around and hope to use it with it... get ready to buy some of their approved memory chips

    1 out of 5 eggs Works, but no vendor warranty support.

    Pros: It worked fine for as long as it worked (8 weeks). The parallel port is a nice feature which I needed. The serial ports could be handy also.

    Cons: The product failed after two months, and the vendor (ECS) can only be contacted through a website in Taiwan. The form submission for issues on that site is broken.

    Bottom Line: I would avoid all ECS products due to lack of support.

    4 out of 5 eggs Cool Board!

    Pros: Looks cool
    Low cost
    Low power usage
    No noise

    Cons: Would not output video through HDMI
    Would not boot from usb
    Would not work with memory I already owned
    14 day rebates are lame, and give less time for testing

    Bottom Line: This really is a cool little board, but it refusing to boot from usb was a deal breaker for me (was going to be a router, so the hdmi did not matter - vga worked fine). If I had a spare SSD around I probably would have kept it. If I could find low capacity SSD's, 16gb or less, for a really low cost, I probably would have kept it.

    Somewhat off topic, but it still surprises me that in spite of how SSD's are so well suited to use for operating system drives and not storage, and that most linux operating systems would do just fine with 12-16gb of space (or less), that no one seems to make them that small. The 32gb models the few times I've checked seemed to be a terrible value for the money compared to 64gb+ models. And 64gb+ just seems stupidly large for any os drive where you do not need storage for other things. So then, usb drives are the closest I've found, and in particular the sandisk extreme usb 3.0 16-32gb, and that was going to be the drive for this particular build. No usb booting means I would have had to buy a more expensive drive, thereby killing whatever good deal this ecs board could have been for me (besides the additional money for compatible memory I already spent).

    I really like these ECS embedded boards, but be prepared to have to order memory using their Qualified Vendors List. Also, the 14 day rebates kind of suck, because in the event that the memory you have does not work and you have to order more and wait, you might not have much time if any to test anything. Also, if the board does not post, and you get no beeps, and you've got no video, there is a GOOD chance that it is just the memory not being compatible with the board, or some connection may not be seated properly (i would reseat everything, psu, memory, etc). I have never needed the QVL for an asus board, but the ECS boards I've gotten have yet to work with whatever memory I happen to have on hand.

    So even with the few issues I've had, I'm still kind of an ecs fan. I've done 2 builds with ecs boards, and both have cost me more money/hassle than I was planning, but ECS embedded boards with a rebate are the best value for the money I've seen (especially if your memory works). Will definitely try again at some point.

    5 out of 5 eggs Good little board

    Pros: It is a nice board and works as advertised. Used this to build a small form factor build for my parents. Using a Pico 90w psu, no fans, and the cpu hovers somewhere around 55-60 degrees C under moderate load which is great.

    Cons: It's REAALLLY picky with memory, did not accept any of my Corsair or G.Skills. Ended up using a Samsung stick from an old laptop.

    I recommend checking here:

    http://www.ecs.com.tw/website2008/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=1564&CategoryID=1&DetailName=Feature&MenuID=17&LanID=0#fragment-Memory

    If you're looking for compatible memory

    Bottom Line: So far it's great, though it has only been two days so well see how this board lasts in the upcoming months.

    3 out of 5 eggs No bios update tools for linux

    Pros: Great price for a modest bay trail board.

    Cons: Hanging on reset under CentOS 7.1. Went to check the BIOS and discovered that ECS BIOS update support does not exist for linux.

    Bottom Line: I've been spoiled using ASROCK and other systems that have modern Internet updating BIOS tooling. I've got that feeling where I saved a few dollars and ended up buying something I'm going to hate a little forever.

    4 out of 5 eggs Great value!

    Pros: Quiet, cool, inexpensive, and fairly fast!

    Cons: Not a gaming machine MB.

    Bottom Line: Good all around choice for NAS, Media PC, or for just surfing.

    5 out of 5 eggs Nice Combo Main Board

    Pros: Small form factor, comes with SATA data cables. CPU is fast, great BIOS options. Comes with every connector you could want...

    Cons: ...except IDE! That's really my only gripe so far. That and it only has one SO DIMM slot so it can only hold 8GB max.

    Bottom Line: Very nice performance so far. I'm just now loading Win8 on it so we'll see how it does but boot-up screams at 2.41GHz, even with only 4GB RAM (12800). Will put CPU-Z on it and see how it benchmarks but overall, I like this board. Time will tell if ECS lives up to the billing but so far, I am impressed. I am also impressed with the way ECS has responded to other complaints I have seen on Newegg. They seem to have it going on!
