4 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Board

Pros: Tiny fan is silent. Board and CPU are surprisingly quick. Unlike what other reviews have said, it booted into Xubuntu 14.04 64 without any problems. CPU is fast enough to run emulators like MAME without problem (I played MK3 and Samurai Showdown 2 without any visible issues) even when only using 1 2GB stick of 1066 RAM.

Price point is fair.

BIOS detected the mSATA hard disk without issue, Xubuntu also had no issues with it or anything else on the board. HDMI audio worked fine under linux.

Cons: Documentation is poor. As other reviewers have stated, there is little information on the range of acceptable DC power input. I've found that any laptop power supply will do the trick. I'm using an old Dell unit I had, which works fine.

The included SATA power cable is absurdly short. If you need some routing/placement options with your hard disk, you will be disappointed. I'd highly recommend using this system with an mSATA drive.

Could not get it to boot using Windows8 Embedded Standard. Oh well, Linux is working great for my use as an emulator machine.

If I set BiOS to UEFI mode, the computer simply won't boot and I needed to use the jumper to reset the BIOS. Same deal when setting it Windows 8 mode. That's not very cool.

1080P video is a little iffy, so this might not make a good TVPC if that is what you are considering.

Other Thoughts: Good board if you have a specific use in mind that requires low CPU power and only 1 hard disk. BIOS is not great and documentation is poor. Fortunately, you won't need the documentation if you are an experienced system builder.

Great board for the price if you take its limitations into consideration.

4 out of 5 eggsgood for small backup server

Pros: Slim, tiny size. Notebook power adapter can be used as a power supply. Lots of USB connections. WIFI card.

Cons: Tried to install Openelec (xbmc (new name kodi) based embedded media player. It works but have well know problem with Intel Graphics. Without using hardware acceleration it is too slow to play 1080p video. Minus 1 egg.

Other Thoughts: I've build a tiny backup server (booksize) based on nas4free system on a flashdrive and two 3 TB hard drives. This board actually has 3 SATA ports but only 2 SATA power cables. Third cable is for mSATA.

3 out of 5 eggsInfo on DV Power

Pros: Don't know yet! As we are still trying to find a power supply.

Cons: Lack of Documentation and weak tech support.

Other Thoughts: The following was sent to the FliteGroup USA (quote):
"The on board DC-in power requirement such as voltage and amperage cannot be located anywhere, including the User's Guide and on your website? Please advise the type of power adapter required. Also, what is the function of the on board SATA power connector? Can it be used without DC-in power? Many thanks!"

And their reply (quote):
"Motherboard connection is based off of Intel reference design. Please see the following link for power adapter information.

The SATA cables the come with the motherboard will have a connection that plugs into the SATA power. Power will be drawn from the DC in."

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME !!

Pros: This is an awesome little board. The very Slim-ITX form factor is great. I am using the board to interface with my Arduino projects and works out fantastic. Its jam packed with features - just about everything you would want in a board like this.

Cons: NO CONS (would be nice to have the same board with dual nisc's.

Other Thoughts: I think that those giving it cons because it lacks something need to re-evaluate this board and look at all it does have for being such a small thin board. Just cause it doesn't have something you need doesn't make it fair to call it a con. Don't buy it knowing so and then con it afterwards. Buy something else!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little board for media center

Pros: Incredible price (esp if on sale/rebate)
Decent performance for a cheap board
Small size, ideal for tiny media center.
Two mini-PCI Express (laptop style) slots.

Cons: No USB 3.0
Limited USB 2.0 ports
No PCI-E slot

Other Thoughts: Board works great with Ubuntu 12.04.3 (kernel 3.8) . Does NOT boot Ubuntu 12.04.4 (kernel 3.11) or 14.04 (kernel 3.13)

Expansion to USB 3.0 seems POSSIBLE (I haven't tried it yet) using a Syba mini-PCI Express card, if you can give up using an mSata drive.

Celeron 847 is a Sandy Bridge dual core (same CPU as my netbook) so I knew it wouldn't be that slow. Performance for a media center or NAS is more than adequate.

Uses a DC power supply; my Dell PA-12 65 watt power adapter works perfectly. The unit draws only 15 watts at idle and maybe 30 watts under load so 65w should be plenty.

There are only two USB 2.0 ports on the back. There enough headers on the board to add up to five additional USB 2.0 ports: one dedicated header for two of those ports and three others that can also be used for a webcam, cardreader, etc.

An included cable has a connector for micro Sata in case you want to add a "slim" DVD drive (laptop DVD drive basically) as you would use in a small case.

If you want to add a better internal wireless card than the one that comes with the board, try an Intel 6235 which is not only dual band but also has bluetooth if you need that.

5 out of 5 eggsBought to turn into a router

Pros: I bought this to turn into a home firewall/router running Sophos. So I wanted something small with low power consumption.

Size - ITX Thin... very small
Power Consumption - 12w at idle. That is with two sticks of 2GB memory and a mSATA drive.

Came with a mini pci express wifi card. (can't use with sophos though)

Cons: Does not have a pcie slot so additional NIC will only run at USB 2.0 speed at best. Not a big issue as my incoming internet isn't that taxing that yet.

Other Thoughts: Should be great for a router/firewall device, a home server, or maybe even a hometheater device. The price at $32 after rebate certainly is in my price range. My total bill for the router was $32 for the MOBO, $22 for the HD, $7 for the usb NIC, and $24 for the memory for a total of $85. Not bad for an router that is way better than any of these little wifi routers.

4 out of 5 eggsnice little board

Pros: still waiting for the mSATA drive that I am planning on putting in this build but I couldn't wait to check it out so I fired it up with Ubuntu 13 on a USB stick. Everything came right up as advertised, as a bonus this came with a cheapo half card wi-fi which has only one antenna socket but I stuck an old salvage laptop antenna on it and I'll be darned if it didn't come right up on the desktop! If you look close in the picture you will see the wi-fi card in middle, nice little extra. Power supply connector is a Dell type (3 conductor) but I had one lying around that worked just fine. I plan to build an all in one box using this board just for internet and light duty processing to replace a dying laptop which I never use with the battery anyway

Cons: documentation is a little sketchy, would have liked more info on the DC power plug spec up front but I am used to it with cheap china boards - you get what you pay for

Other Thoughts: Overall build quality seems quite good, time will tell. I am planning a dual boot with XP and Ubuntu for the internet side as I still am running several audio programs that work fine with XP and have a few keys lying around, will update when I get mSATA drive.

5 out of 5 eggsTremendous Value

Pros: $33 AR for MB & CPU. Worth much more. Performance is fine for general computing. It gets 3.9 rating in Windows7. Web surfing, Email and general operations are good, and seem the equal of my more expensive rigs.
1. Uses mobile memory modules that are now noticeably cheaper than desktop ones, which leaves more space for functionality.
2. Uses 19v brick for power supply, saves space & $.
3. Can use Msata SSD on MB. Saves space.
4. 1/2 height saves space.

Cons: Only 2 rear panel USB ports.
Small fan may become noisy.

Other Thoughts: Absolutely loves it so far.
Bought from Newegg.
