5 out of 5 eggsThis is a really solid board for the money

Pros: So far we were able to successfully test this board and embedded CPU as a BZ Flag game server and Plex Media Server. The processor handles basic server tasks well while staying within it's designed thermal range.

Cons: No virtualization technology in the CPU. Only one PCI-E slot which may be an issue with trying to resolve IRQ conflict issues.

Other Thoughts: Buy this board if you need a basic desktop, server or HTPC solution.

5 out of 5 eggsmythtv frontend and XBMC

Pros: Fast - menus all snappy as fast as the i7 it replaced. loads in secs
Playback - Bluray rips @ 1080p with audio over hdmi with integrated Intel graphics.
Low Power

Cons: No USB 3.0

Other Thoughts: I'm impressed this would probably be enough computing power for most non gamers.

5 out of 5 eggsGood board

Pros: 1. Cheaper
2. Quite
3. Faster

Cons: N.A.

Other Thoughts: Bought the board for my HTPC, hoping that it will be able to play movies from my Blu-ray drive. It exceeded my expectations, it is able to play the blu-ray's with just 40% of CPU consumption. Even the 1080p mkv files are played effortlessly.

The fan is quite, it doesn't make any noticeable noise.

5 out of 5 eggsMy Favorite After Much Research

Pros: 1) Celeron 1037U CPU is more powerful than other embedded CPU's: Intel Atom, lesser Celerons, & AMD (1765 rating on
2) Built two Linux Mint 16 boxes with zero issues.
3) Fan is silent.
4) PCI-E x16 2.0 Slot (x8) allows for expansion
5) Low price! Low price! Low price! (no need to purchase CPU)

Cons: 1) No USB 3.0
2) Has some electrolytic capacitors (instead of solid metal caps) but may not be a reliability issue since they aren't used in powering/filtering CPU.

Other Thoughts: My Build
1) BIOSTAR NM70I-1037U
2) G.SKILL Ripjaw 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL (used 2G for each build)
3) Mushkin Enhanced Chronos MKNSSDCR60GB-7 2.5" 60GB SATA3 SSD
4) APEX MI-008 Mini-ITX Case w/250W PS
7) Kingwin KF-251-BK 2.5in dual SATA drive bay w/ key lock (discontinued on Newegg)

My first build omitted DVD & dual swappable SATA drive bay. I installed Linux with flash drive.

I played a DVD movie, "Nanny McPhee" through VLC Media Player (Linux) on my 720p Samsung 31" TV connected via HDMI with no lag issues whatsoever. I can't speak for 1080p. Fox News videos streamed flawlessly through the Firefox web browser. With this motherboard, I can't detect any appreciable difference in boot time for Linux Mint from a MUCH more expensive build that incorporates an Intel i5-4670K CPU with 8GB of RAM. The Linux menu & LibreOffice apps are all extremely snappy.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's Eggscellent in this pricerange

Pros: Great price on an embedded board with PCI x slot for graphics card. Fantastic for HTPC and puts the chronic Atom embedded solutions to shame!
FAST one day free shipping for me...

Cons: BIOS sucks no biggie.

Other Thoughts: LOL a $100 video card to do low-mid range Gaming on this costs more than this PROC/board ah the irony! I put an old ATI Hd5450 in it to test graphics and the bencmarks were worse than this board's Intel HD2500 Graphics time to trash the old card. Oh well will get a low profile $100 video card and will have a great system for any video and low gaming thrown at it! Agreed with other viewer that 1080P video on this is at times a little stuttery but not too bad. The CPU fan is quiet. I added custom copper strips to the heatsink FOR FUN which are held in place by the OEM cpu fan. Put a Antec cool quiet 120mm case Fan on top cover of case and it blows down cooling the CPU directly and the whole system (as the OEM CPU fan never comes on now), MOBO, and internal power supply (who's fan also never comes on. GREAT BOARD for price Get it!

Shipped Fast!

FAST FREE SHIPPING from local NJ: Fedex smartpost with usps stinks but big brown got this to me in one day!

5 out of 5 eggsMakes A Great Buntu Box

Pros: LOW POWER & CHEAP. Biostar Is A Great Board These Days!

4 out of 5 eggsJust be Ready

Pros: Bought this to build sff Media Computer. The set up works fine for this purpose. Very inexpensive build compared to separate Motherboard CPU purchase. Runs Windows 7 Professional 32 bit with ease.

Cons: Very difficult Bios to manipulate. Lots of difficulty with one keyboard and plus or minus keys. I had to install ps2 keyboard in order to change bios to read from usb drive first instead of hard drive. Docked an egg for the bios problems.

Other Thoughts: Do not expect to play 1080p with on board video. I tried just for giggles. Too much stutter. I will work great with almost any entry level video card installed very well to both play and stream video.

5 out of 5 eggsWow it's neat.

Pros: It's cheap
Darn thing is faster than I thought
It's about all non gamers need
A hdmi port

Cons: No USB3

Other Thoughts: I had a monitor, memory, SSD and a power supply and a mouse and keyboard laying around unused so I bought this and the Cooler Mast Elite 110 case and what a combo. The speed really surprised me as most computer use is Internet Email and some Finance and Office work. I installed Windows 7 and from hitting the power button to Windows being loaded is about 7 seconds, wow I didn't expect that. I am very happy with this board if you are not a gamer this may very well be a great deal for you.
