4 out of 5 eggsAwesome for Ubuntu Server

Pros: - Very fast, very cool server board.
- 1x half-height mini PCI-E and 1x PCI-E (just enough for a dual band router build)
- UEFI console provides the command "pci" which lets you double check that you're hardware is connected/functioning prior to OS installation

Cons: - Needs a BIOS update
- Ridiculously weird USB keyboard support: UEFI console works with pretty much any keyboard but once you are in standard BIOS screen most suddenly don't - of the three keyboards I had handy only one worked. Having a PS/2 keyboard around is the only sure bet for setting up the BIOS.

Other Thoughts: If you can't get into the regular BIOS from the splash screen just type "exit" twice at the UEFI console prompt - it will take you there.

I'm copying/editing/annotating instructions for BIOS update that I used, these were provided by Lance W. in his review of the GA-J1900N-D3V which also requires a BIOS update for Linux support.

-----

Follow STEP 1 on this guide: http://www.gigabytenordic.com/wordpress/update-bios-gigabyte-brix/

Download the latest BIOS (as of 6/10/2014 it's F4): http://download.gigabyte.ru/bios/mb_bios_ga-j1800n-d2h_f4.zip

Copy ALL the files to the newly created bootable USB drive (INCLUDING AUTOEXEC.BAT!)

Go into BIOS and set CSM to UEFI and Legacy (in the Advanced tab) - Set network to DISABLED, Storage to Legacy First, Video to UEFI First and the last one to UEFI first.

Reboot with no DVD in your system, hit F12 and boot off your USB drive (the drive name may appear twice, I selected the option that did *not* start with "UEFI: ") - the autoexec file will automatically flash the BIOS for you. Trying to run EFIFlash manually will result in an error code that it can't read the BIOS file - you HAVE to do it AUTOMATICALLY. Very odd.

After that you can boot off your Win7 64-bit installer (DVD or USB, whatever you chose) and it should work just fine.

-----

One other thing: when you boot off the USB key to flash the BIOS the process will begin *immediately* if you followed the directions above, and the first thing it will do is erase the BIOS - this is OK, everything will be fine. The process takes a minute or two and after a reboot you're good to go.

3 out of 5 eggsHDMI out doesn't speak to my TV

Pros: It's small, and dead quiet -- completely fanless. When coupled with a SSD, there's no moving parts. Low power, though I've not measured it. Super-easy setup for a HTPC box -- plug in RAM, a SSD, power supply, and it's ready. 4.9 Windows experience rating, lowest number is the CPU.

Cons: VGA out is the only working video port. I did my initial build, BIOS setup & Win7/64 install with this board connected via VGA to a monitor. But, when I tried to connect this to a Sony KDL40EX501 TV, the TV never saw a signal. Tried multiple HDMI cables, multiple TV inputs. No luck. For a MB that I bought to be part of a HTPC, that's a really important feature to not work.

After installing the USB3 drivers from the website, Win7/64 could not see any USB ports or recognize devices connected to it. Uninstalled those drivers, and the USB ports were usable. Wait a bit, this might get better.

Other Thoughts: Reading the other comments, I went straight to a pair of 4GB SODIMMS at 1.35V, and immediately flashed this MB to the F3 BIOS.

I used a PS/2 keyboard when flashing/tweaking the BIOS to F3. Never had a single problem getting it recognized. If you have such a keyboard still lying around, it's probably the most reliable input method for the BIOS.

COM/LPT ports on MB - nice for some, but I really don't need them nor have I tested them.

The CPU is soldered to the MB, limiting upgrade paths. But, a PCIe x1 slot should allow a GPU to be added down the road to take some work off the CPU. There are x1 -> x16 adapters that really open up the choices of GPU.

Reading the manual, the Mini PCI Express slot is claimed to not support USB Bluetooth signals. Haven't tried any cards in that slot, but it'd be great to get a WiFi + Bluetooth card and save a slot.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Good Board

Pros: Very cool running.
Small
Good power
Low Watts

The bottom line is that overall this is an excellent board, particularly if you are looking for something small, fanless, with good power. In fact, this board is so cool running that it runs much cooler than my HP Thin Client t5720, which has a single core AMD Geode processor. The Dual-Core Celeron J1800 is impressively fast and cool running and has sufficient on-board video power to easily navigate the Internet and stream videos without lag. Unlike my HP Thin Client, which I upgraded years ago with a Transcend 8GB SSD card and HP’s graphics kit that included an NVIDIA PCI card, the Celeron’s graphics and video are still much faster than the upgraded t5720. Web pages scroll fast and smooth even with high definition resolution of 1920 x 1080. Windows 8.1/64 boots up very fast and navigating Windows is fast enough that lag isn’t an annoying problem. Another pro is that this board uses a minimum amount of power—so little, that I’m able to use my HP Thin Client’s 12-volt 50 watt adapter along with a Mini-Box pico PSU.

Cons: Needs BIOS upgrade in order to run Windows 7
F-Panel is on opposite side of PCI-Express slot

Like others have noted, a BIOS upgrade is necessary in order to run/install Windows 7. It’s silly because Windows 7 is still popular, but for some reason Gigabyte decided to forget about Windows 7 out of the box. Also, the F-Panel, which is where the power wire, hard drive wire, etc. are plugged into, is on the opposite side of the PCI-Express slot. This was a problem for me since I installed this board into the M350 Universal Mini-ITX enclosure, which has panel wires that are too short to reach the top of this motherboard. I know that this is really Mini-ITX’s fault because it designed the enclosure with inadequate length wires. So, I’m not going to remove an egg because of this issue. I’m noting this in case others are looking to buy the M350 enclosure. I solved the short wiring problem by soldering/slicing in about 4 inches of wire I cut from another harness with the exact same wiring that I had lying around.

Other Thoughts: I bought this motherboard and build a fanless rig for surfing the Internet. Being new to mini-ITX boards, I bought Mini-Box’s “picoPSU-160-XT, 160w output” and figured I would need at least a 150-watt power adapter. But I learned that this mini-ITX board does not need anything close to 150 watts to run it basic without using the PCI-Express slot. So, if you plan on buying a Pico PSU and plan on running this board without a separate video card, I would say go for the 80-watt kit or even the 60-watt kit, which includes the proper power adapter. I don’t know if it will turn out that I’m going to have to buy a higher rated power adapter, but so far the 50-watt adapter is working fine. I wouldn’t be surprised if out of the box this little board draws no more than 15-18 watts. The Celeron is rated at 10 watts. The Pico PSU that I purchased needs a 12-volt power adapter. My advice is to buy a Pico PSU kit instead of buying each separately. I bought an overkill Pico PSU separately then struggled to decide which adapter to buy, bearing in mind that I want low power and another overkill situation. I decided to try my 50-watt HP adapter, which is working fine. There are Pico PSU’s that are rated to utilize various voltages of power adapters (e.g., PicoPSU-80-WI-32); however, I don’t see one with a 12-volt/4-pin connector for the processor.

I’m using Crucial 8GB Notebook Kit (2 sticks 4GB) DDR3-1333 (PC3 10600) SODIMM 1.35V 204 PIN (Only 1.35-volt RAM can be used). This RAM was immediately recognized. I’m also using a Kingston 240GB SSDNow, V300, SATA 3. This SSD was also immediately recognized.

Final Comments: For those who are eliminating this motherboard because of the Windows 7 BIOS compatibility issue, please note that Windows 8 isn’t as bad as some claim as far as the tiles, etc. Actually, Windows 8 has both tiles or you can use the traditional Window 7 desktop—both you can easily toggle back and forth. Otherwise, flash the BIOS so you can use Windows 7—the board is that good of a bang for the buck that you might want to put up with the hassle of flashing the BIOS.

Documentation: The setup instructions are typical, as I don’t find them to be any better or worse than what typically accompanies a new motherboard.

BIOS: The individual,Jan V (who gave 3 eggs) and in the Con section was critical of what is described as a “Standard and gross text bios”, is misleading. This motherboard has a typical graphic BIOS that is navigated by using the arrow keys. The “text bios” looks to be a command line program that will show up if the “DEL” (Delete) key is not pressed upon boot-up, which will bring you into a typical looking graphic BIOS. So the BIOS of this motherboard is typical.

Rating: I dropped an egg since the BIOS must be flashed/upgraded in order to be compatible with Windows 7. Otherwise, I would have given this motherboard 5 eggs.

4 out of 5 eggsAddendum to "Love/Hate" review. Usus 1.35V RAM; not 1.5.

Pros: REQUIRES 1.35 SODIMM DDR3, Cool and quite, pricing, build quality

Cons: Lacks documentation (spec requirements) on Newegg and Gigabytes webpages (i.e. RAM voltage req.).

Other Thoughts: This is just an additional side note to my review "Love/Hate."

I hadn't realized this would be an issue, but I believe the memory (RAM) issues I was having with the board was due to me using memory modules that required 1.5V. Be aware that this board uses 1.35V memory; not 1.5V. The RAM format is DDR3 SODIMM.

I would have likely had less issues with the board had this been clearly marked in the specs on Newegg's or Gigbyte's webpages (I noticed the voltage requirements in the manual). The various memory formats strangely led to hard drive recognition issues (assuming is was voltage issues). Considering this was mostly ignorance on my part, I would change my initial review to four stars if I could. Overall, the board is performing well and is a great board for the price. It still amazes me how cool this thing runs at full load in a well-ventilated, compact and fan-less case (Antec ISK 110). Enjoy.

3 out of 5 eggsLove/Hate

Pros: Fanless, Runs cool, quiet, build quality, form factor, all in one (excluding drive and memory), performance, video streaming, 5 USB ports, drivers.

Cons: EXTREMELY FINICKY, NOT COMPATIBLE WITH SOME MEMORY AND HARD DRIVES, Standard and gross text bios; the Asus version has a GUI bios.

Other Thoughts: I purchased two of these boards. The first one was sent back because I believed it to be DOA.
I believed it to be DOA because it did not work with my 2 by 4GB Corsair Vengeance memory modules and a 500GB Seagate hybrid drive. The board would power on, but not POST with the incompatible hardware.

Eventually, I got the board to POST when pulling/using memory out of my laptop to run the board (the memory was a single 4GB Samsung DDR3 module. I did the same with the hard drive out of the laptop and the system actually booted into windows. I realized that it did not like the hardware I initially planed on using with the board. I'm assuming the other guy with the DOA review on this item may have had the same issue.

I got the Seagate hybrid drive to work by just reinstalling windows on it once I finally got the board to fully load the windows 8 OS CD ROM; it froze a few times trying to load. My windows 8 OS key also required me to install windows 7 first, but the board would freeze when trying to load the windows 7 OS installation disk. I found a work around though and was able to install the OS directly from the windows 8 CD by modifying the registry and activating the key.

This board contributed to the most difficult build I've ever dealt with. If you can, I would recommend you wait for the Asus J1800C (http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/J1800IC/) board unless Gigbyte update their bios (yes, my bios was updated to the latest version (F3)).

The board has run consistently stable once I found compatible hardware; I tried other memory modules, drives etc that I left out of this review. I have no idea with why the board is selective/finicky about hardware compatibility. There is nothing on Newegg or the Gigabyte websites regarding these issues.

Overall, I'm happy with the performance of the board, but it was a complete nightmare getting it up and running. I took two stars off because of it being such a hassle that will likely plague other folks interested in this board. The board multi-tasks and streams video well. On occasion it will slow down when I have 20+ windows going from IE and Chrome browsers containing video, flash etc and itunes (downloading podcasts).
I would highly recommend this board for anyone wanting to build a compact, cool running and low-powered system that can do all the basics very well (writing papers, listening to music, watching/streaming video as an HTPC and so forth). Just be very aware that this board may be finicky for you as it was me. I'd hope not of course. I built my first gaming system with a Lanparty board. I go way back with this brand and this is my first extremely poor experience.

Durability/longevity shouldn't be an issue. Unlike the Biostar version, the Gigabyte has all solid caps etc.

4 out of 5 eggsIt WILL boot other OS besides Windows 8/8.1

Pros: Great price, easy installation - EXCEPT for the UEFI differences for alternate OS

Cons: Alternate Operating systems require some additional work, but it's just a few bios settings.

Other Thoughts: By default, this board used UEFI boot sources. Many alternate OS (Linux, FeeeBSD) don't fully support this yet. Therefore, you need to look through the Manual and turn on the "CSM" setting (Compatibility Support Mode). This will allow booting of standard bios boot sources.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: Just an update here for anyone using this board in an HTPC build. Verified working with Happauge 1250 tuner card (N82E16815116024) for cable QAM channels (unencrypted) with MythTV backend and XBMC front end running Ubuntu. Also works with the Rosewill Media Center remote (N82E16880101008). There is about an 8 second delay between channel changes, which is twice as long as what my cable box takes, and the channel mapping needs some tweaking, but works fine.

Cons: See previous review

Other Thoughts: 9 year old daughter seems pretty happy with the setup. She streams movies and TV shows from the network DVR and the office suite built into Ubuntu (Libre Office) is both FREE and MS Office compatible so far, so school work is doable on the cheap. For a kid needing a computer with homework space you can add one of those Sauder desks for $50 and a $20 task chair (Menards) and mount the case underneath (what I did) making the desk useful for both puter and homework.
