4 out of 5 eggsNice low-end board, even for Ubuntu

Pros: Low cost MB/CPU/Cooler package - fast enough for most applications, especially for always-on applications. Esp. like the two SATA II ports (over the previous versions single PATA/IDE port). Can support 2 Gig of RAM, works well with WinXP and Ubuntu (two OS I tested with).

Cons: Problem with video on almost all OS except WinXP (see Other Thoughts for solution). Heatsink is a bit tall for many "tiny PC" cases, so be careful picking a case if you stray from conventional cases to "mini-ITX boards" - the CPU cooling fan/heatsink are a bit tall compared to similar Via and other MBs like this.

Other Thoughts: Video problem - turns out this chipset is not compatible with most "sis" drivers, if you reconfigure Ubuntu to use "vesa" driver instead, 1280x1024 and 1024x768 work fine.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board for the money

Pros: Great board for car pc. Powerful enough to run most non graphic intensive apps and low power requirements.

Cons: heatsink is too tall. Would much rather have a smaller heatsink with a fan (noise isn't an issue for me)
i wouldn't reccomend this board for an htpc.

Other Thoughts: layout of the board could be a bit better, power supplier connection is in an akward spot for most mini-itx cases.
BIOS is slow to start up.

2 out of 5 eggsNot a good Linux board!

Pros: Inexpensive, power-efficient, compact.

Cons: The SiS chipset on this board has virtually non-existent Linux support. I finally managed to get 2D acceleration working after hours on forums, but MythTV still jumps and skips. 3D acceleration is a no-go for the indefinite future. Why didn't Intel just put a G35 chipset or something in it? Why support their competitor?! The CPU also seems to run hot. It idles around 44C when sitting in front of two high-flow 80MM fans, and has hit the mid-60s under full load. It seems to be basically unsuitable for any case where the cooling fans are not aligned directly with an adjacent PSU fan, unless these are actually desirable temperatures.

5 out of 5 eggsLittle Valley 2 is even better

Pros: mini-ITX form factor, excellent power-price/performance, all-in-one mobo w/ soldered on CPU, onboard graphic, audio, LAN. Incredible NewEgg price.

Cons: 1 DIMM slot, only 1GB max memory. I was just slightly disappointed by the total board power still in the 29 - 41 Watt range.

Other Thoughts: Not a gaming board. But great as a general purpose, low-power desktop or home server. Really liked the first version D201GLY "little valley" board. For same price as old version, this adds 2 SATA ports, new fanless Conroe-L-based 64-bit capable cpu. Wall power using a 90+% efficient DC power supply showed 29 - 32 Watts idle 41W max for whole system w/ disk, board, RAM, optical drive. Old version of the board was 25 - 29 Watts idle, 37 Watts max similarly equipped. Also bought iStar Storm 3 mini ITX case. CPU temp was 47C and stable. System runs fairly quiet. Currently have Solaris Nevada b79 running on this. Thinking about buying another half dozen as holiday presents for my geek colleagues. NewEgg delivered my order to my door in under 48 hours after placing this order. Included I/O shield, CDROM, pinout sticker. Performance seems about same as old lil valley board.
