This review is from: ECS BAT-I(1.0)/J2900 Intel Bay Trail J2900 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
Pros: Very low power. This cpu will handle 1080p plex streaming from a freenas build! Currently, only this company has an embedded motherboard solution. Hope to see ASRock take their j1900 platform and boost it with this cpu in the future!
Cons: ECS is a fly by night company out of Asia. I wish I could say more as I really wanted this j2900 solution to work. However, as I susspected, they did not put a big enough heatsink on the processor. Reached 75c at full load and system started throttling. Performed worse than ASRock J1900 solution due to this in same conditions.
Other Thoughts: If ECS hopes to get a niche in the US market, they have to learn and learn quickly you can't skimp out. Cutting cost by putting an inadequate heatsink gives them a bad rep which will take a lot in order to regain customer's trust. If you absolutely need a low power solution, look at an AMD 5350 platform. It's about 10 watts more in power than the J1900 and J2900, but the speed boost is worth that extra wattage! I would have stayed with this J2900 had they used a decent heatsink on their product. I just wish other competitors would get their J2900's out!
