1 out of 5 eggsNot worth it, period

Pros: dual Gigabit Ethernet
Quad Core 2ghz processor,
very power efficient

Cons: TERRIBLE BIOS
NO built-in BIOS update function
Completely incapable of installing any operating system including windows 7 x64, windows 8.1 x64, ubuntu 12.04 x64 or

Other Thoughts: I bought three of these for a customer's builds for basic net machines to replace some computers destroyed by some vandals. Had one of them come with the F2 BIOS, the other two had F1 BIOS on them. There is no built-in BIOS update function on board, according to Gigabyte, you're supposed to update within windows. Which is impossible because you can't install Windows with the F1 BIOS on the machine. I spent around 6 hours just trying to get the BIOS updated through various means, including FreeDOS via USB thumb drive and through Harddrive Swaps of working OS installs from the third machine, etc. with no luck what so ever.

I will be returning all three boards for refund and will get something else.

1 out of 5 eggsGood Idea - Poor Execution

Pros: Not much, BIOS is incredibly buggy cannot tell how well the new Intel Celeron V4 Bay Trail would be. Can’t get past the BIOS.

Cons: Where to start. The delivered MB had BIOS ver F1. Buggy and unusable for any OS. Gigabyte wants you to get out your DOS and floppy to upgrade BIOS - dead serious! Search the internet, there is a hpusb tool you can use instead. F2 was almost as bad but some Win system issues fixed. F3 fixed most Win issues. None of these addressed serious problems BIOS causes for BSD or Linux distros. Do a google search...

Gigabyte Tech support is pitiful. 3 days after submitting a service ticket a reply. “blah blah blah we only care about MS Win users, we will not fix BIOS bugs unless they affect MS Win systems”. Really? I have Win 8 & Win 7 systems but would never use a Celeron to run such a resource hungry, bloated OS as Win! You would want at least the newest i3 if you wanted it to be responsive. This bd is perfect for faster more efficient OS like the nix systems.

There is a serious bug in the BIOS that causes kernel panics at OS install with all nix OS. Something to do with ACPI or USB conflicts. Gigabyte refuses to fix so don’t hold your breath on EVER getting it to work. RMA or use for paper weight or door stop.

Be warned - Gigabyte response to many complaints on this is that it will never be fixed.

Last Gigabyte product I have to RMA as it will be the last purchase. Too many good alternative companies - ASUS, ASRock, MSI, etc who work with ALL OS communities to waste time with this lost cause.

Newegg would not allow me to post unless I gave it at least 1 star so… consider it a -1 star

2 out of 5 eggsDoes not work well on FreeBSD 10

Pros: Low cost and has 2 Ethernet and 2 comm ports. Seems to work well on Win7 when the drivers are downloaded from the Gigabyte website. The drivers on the included CD are worthless.

Cons: FreeBSD 10 seems to have a problem starting all of the CPU's. On most boot-ups it kernel panics when starting CPU's other than the first one. The auto-reboots usually start OK after the first panic. The latest version of Xorg in the ports system:

X.Org X Server 1.12.4
Release Date: 2012-08-27
[ 25.368] X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0
[ 25.368] Build Operating System: FreeBSD 10.0-STABLE amd64

Does not have a video driver for the Intel graphics chip on the motherboard. It runs in VESA mode.

The Realtek ALC887 HDA CODEC is seen by the operating system but neither OSS nor Pulseaudio can use the chip:

Version info: OSS 4.2 (b 2009/201406161815) (0x00040100) BSD.

Other Thoughts: I will reinstall my 3 year old motherboard in this PC and put this Gigabyte on the shelf for a future project that doesn't require X or audio. It is not worth the expense and effort to return this board to Newegg for credit. This motherboard does not meet my needs.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Board, Huge Improvement on Atom - Fix for Win7 64 bit Inside!

Pros: Small form factor, quad core, dual gigabit LAN, low power use, serial port, decent graphics

Cons: Only 2 SATA ports, getting Win7 64 bit to install was complicated, no on-board HDMI, Gigabyte "drivers" disc is useless, download the latest from their site

Other Thoughts: Since a lot of people have asked, here's the process to upgrade the F3 BIOS...

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

Download the latest BIOS (as of 5/28/2014 it's F3: http://download.gigabyte.us/FileList/BIOS/mb_bios_ga-j1900n-d3v_f3.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 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 one of the systems I built I had to restart the Win7 install before it loaded into setup, worked just fine the second time.

Good luck - hope this helps!

My one egg was deducted for having to deal with support on a brand new board and it being a bit of a run around to sort it out.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks with Linux

Pros: Small, quiet & low-powered.
Can run windows 8, windows 7, and Linux (up and running).

Cons: It is a pain to set up the BIOS to run Linux.

Bios F2 is a requirement for Linux.

Not forgiving.

Other Thoughts: So after checking forums and trial and error, I installed the new bios on a dos formatted usb. Then all the uefi settings were switched to legacy first or only.

I tried several Linux osesand Unix oses, but the the latest kernel is required, otherwise its a no-go. I used fedora 20, and everything went peachy.

I've heard you can switch in a runninghdd drive with other flavors of Linux pre-installed.

1 out of 5 eggsPrematurely Released

Pros: Low power usage

Cons: The BIOS. Ugh.

It ships with the F1 BIOS which is next to useless. I spent two days trying to upgrade to the F2 BIOS. I eventually had to install Windows 8 just to upgrade the BIOS. Windows 8 would show weird lag and would sometimes stop responding to me as well.

After that now I can get Linux to somewhat boot, only to have it lock up later. I can't enter the BIOS setup anymore either, even after clearing the CMOS.

Other Thoughts: This was rushed to market and the BIOS certainly shows it. F2 BIOS seems to be better but there are some regressions as well. This might be a good product after they resolve all of the BIOS issues.

3 out of 5 eggsNot ready for prime time (other than 8.1)

Pros: Tiny, low power, high performance, silent, 2 GigE ports.

Cons: Flaky BIOS that doesn't easily support Windows 7 or most "legacy" boot options, bad update options, bad tech support from Gigabyte

Other Thoughts: Besides 'just get a USB boot drive' to update the BIOS, you need to make several modifications to the current one to allow it to boot in the first place. The 64 bit tools (@BIOS) don't work in Windows 8.1 trial 64 bit, and the BIOS update batch/flash won't work in the command line either because it's 16 bit. if you search for "Gigabyte GA-J1900N-D3V legacy BIOS" you should be able to "untangle" the problem.

4 out of 5 eggspower

Pros: modern 22nm low power low heat board
good performance

Cons: svelte modern board but my legacy 24 pin power cable/PSU dwarfs the mobo itself.

Other Thoughts: Jan, can you describe the pico brick you are using to power
this thing? I would love to modernize the PSU.
