2 out of 5 eggsUnstable

Pros: Cheap. Low power draw. Decent quad core.

Cons: Video issues: I am having an issue that is very odd. The image quality on the VGA port is extremely unstable. It looks like a minor capacitor or grounding issue, but after 30 seconds of looking at the screen one has a terrible headache. I plan on issuing an RMA tomorrow. Hopefull the replacement works.

3 out of 5 eggsPSU incompatibilities... really.

Pros: Good price and features.

Cons: Did not boot with my 20-pin DC-DC PSU (similar to a PicoPSU) which works perfectly with an Asrock E350M1. Manual and others state it works with a 20-pin connector. Tried it both installed and outside of the case. Followed procedure suggested by Asrock here in the review section. No beep codes, nothing on screen.

Booted it successfully with the Seasonic PSU I use in my main machine. Passed 48hr memtest.

Asrock obviously made an engineering error here -- this board seems to be very picky about what PSU it requires. Maybe they should issue a qualified vendor list like for memory. :P

Other Thoughts: I'm really not pleased about having to buy a new PSU just to run this board.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent board. Excellent performance

Pros: - Quad-Core Processor
- SoDIMM Memory, up to 16GB supported, tested with Samsung PC3-12800S 2x8GB
- Mini-PCIe port for wifi only.
- HD Audio
- DVI/VGA/HDMI ports and internal and rear USB3.0 ports

Cons: - Seriously, what is up with the PS/2 ports?
-SO-DIMM slots are mounted vertically which posed a challenge for my case with the one behind the heatsink. Alas, I made it work.

Other Thoughts: System runs super cool, very low power, will run HD Video streams at 1080p with ease. This was the third board I used in my prototype development and the only way it will change from prototype to production is if they come out with a newer revision and discontinue this board. It runs Windows 8.1 fast and combined with a SSD, I have 7 second boot times from power off without FastBoot enabled in the BIOS. With fast boot enabled, I have 4 second boot times.

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent board!!

Pros: Excellent for what it is designed to do. Booted with one 8gb stick of RAM and has been stable for 3 months. Plex and slim server run well. I have installed win 8 and using it as a server (runs 24/7). It is slow to use it as a regular computer (opening chrome takes several seconds) which is expected given the baytrail CPU. If this is going to be your PC, would recommend pentium chip as price is close to this.

Cons: None really

5 out of 5 eggsGood board

Pros: 16GB of RAM (low voltage or regular), 4x SATA ports (vs the 2 that comes standard on other boards), three video options, easy to upgrade BIOS, nice graphical BIOS - Just works!

Cons: None so far. The user manual is pretty thin on documentation.

Other Thoughts: I bought the GA-J1800N-D2H (N82E16813128688) when it first came out and that board is not very user friendly. This board is what that board should have been. Specifically:

* This board is easy to flash (you can network flash via the BIOS)
* This board has four SATA ports, two of which are SATA 3
* Accepts low voltage memory (that is what I'm using)
* Nice to have DVI, VGA and HDMI as outputs

This build runs Linux Mint 17, has 8GB of RAM (G.Skill RipJaws - F3-1600C9D-8GRSL), and is used as a Plex multimedia server. I removed the other board and replaced it with this board and Mint didn't skip a beat.

So far, I'm impressed and pleased with this board. I would buy this board again.

5 out of 5 eggsreview update

Pros: fast , low wattage , see other thoughts

Cons: noda

Other Thoughts: well I tried this motherboard with a 150w mini micro power supply and the power went down to 11w at idle . this is an incredible setup considering its low power usage.

windows 7 64bit WEI total 5.2
cpu 6.5
memory 7.5
desktop aero 5.1
3D 5.9
disk 7.9

that's with 16 gigs of Kingston memory oh also almost forgot I just checked the memory timings with cpuz since it doesn't tell you anything in the bios about timings and the timings are

1333mhz at 8,8,8,23, T1

its very fast like this, runs flawless

this makes the perfect HTPC and can play a few games too :)

very happy

windows 8.1 64bit is even faster

5 out of 5 eggsvery capable low power processor

Pros: For the amount of power it uses i think this to be the best integrated motherboard to date. for exceeds last years intergraded Celerons and its video acceleration direct x 11 capable. as other reviewers have said the video as actually capable and looks as good as my i3 or i7 onboard video. very capable htpc , no problem .

Cons: not sure if its this motherboard and all the extra features this board has, it used more wattage then i was predicting. still very low see other thoughts

Other Thoughts: first we all know this is a low wattage motherboard. that's what it was designed for . don't get this confused by comparing to a i7. i7 is for speed this is for power savings.

that said, its a very capable setup. easily out pacing last years Intel Dual-core Celeron 1037U that had the worst video only capable game playing solitaire. lol

not this one with its directx 11 support and Blu-ray acceleration and plays many games. runs windows 8.1 64bit fast and flawless. great htpc . i installed one of these in my truck and one in home for htpc with 4 tuner cable hd .
works flawless in both setups.

now my board has memory voltage settings from 1.25 to 1.65 v. in the bios. i am using 16 gigs of memory at 1.35v. no issues booted up the first time.

wattage peaks at 21.6w at startup for a second ,18v during virus scan , 16w idle in windows 7 , windows 8.1 64bit is on average 5w less . with a seasonic fanless 520w power supply , 2 laptop drives usb keyboard and mouse and wireless card , 2 x 8 = 18 gigs of memory.

I am Going to try the micro mini power supply see if its as efficient will post back

note using Kinston 1600mhz 1.35v memory case 9 , running at 1333mhz at case 7 timings. timings are not changeable in the bios it dose not have any settings for memory timings. just memory speed and voltage

i found that the fast timing really improves the graphics speed. this board likes fast timing memory. it has been working flawless non stop for 7 months now.

i do have one large slow moving silent fan on this board, it lowers cpu and motherboard temps around 15 degrease.

i am very happy

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

Pros: It's ridiculously small and light mini-ITX board. While it's not the most powerful (duh) system, it still offers a decent performance. It's actually quite comparable to current gen Haswell Pentiums. Further more, it's extremely efficient. It only draws around 70W total from my wall jack.

Another advantage of this board over other J1900 boards are that this one actually has 4 SATA ports instead of 2. So if you are building home server like me, it's a perfect board. As of now, it's quietly sitting in my living room by itself, storing all the stuff i need.

Cons: One thing to keep in mind: look at ram voltage and use correct ram. If other ram is used, then mobo will not work. that's actually the biggest reason why people turn down or gave negative review to this model. However, as long as you use the correct ones, it won't give you any problem. Also read other section, because there is pretty important problem with J1900 boards in general.

Other Thoughts: While this board cause Kernel panic to current stable FreeNAS and NAS4Free versions (as of 6/27/14), I can't blame ASRock at all. This problem is common in J1900 board, because those softwares are based on older version of BSDs. The current BSD have solved this issue, but you have to put it in by yourself and build the OS from the bottom up. So unless you are can tinker with the OS itself, I recommend not to buy this model if you are planning to build home NAS using those Operating systems.

2 out of 5 eggsOK Board

Pros: If I was rating this board on its ability to run Windows 8 it would get 4 or 5 stars. It also runs Linux Mint 17 as well.

Cons: It doesn't run PFsense which must account for a large amount of low-power embedded motherboards. There is a BIOS bug in the form of a bad ACPI table that prevents PF from loading and it will affect any other FreeBSD based system.

Other Thoughts: I have seen others complain about this issue with other manufacturers as they all seem to use a similar BIOS and the response is usually that the boards have been only designed to work with Windows 8. Unfortunately people that buy these types of components are probably not looking to build a low power windows only box. Hopefully a BIOS update will resolve this down the road.

5 out of 5 eggsthe best low power motherboard to date including the graphics

Pros: this blows away last years Celeron 1037U that was incapable of playing any games.
this board plays command and conquer with ease in FULL HD 1080p that's great graphics for a low power CPU and i believe a first, blueray and HD video no problem.
this board runs with 16gigs Kingston of ram no problem

Cons: the realtech lan uses 20 to 40% cpu when downloading sometimes in windows 7 64bit .does not happen in windows 8. it does downloads faster then my i7 board with a Intel lan - 2 to 3 times faster.

Other Thoughts: I have been using these low power board and upgrading yearly. this is by far the best to date with and mostly from the capable graphics . the 4 core also much more capable then the privies dual core Celerons.

I using 16 gigs of Kingston ( KHX16LS9P1K2/16 )1.35v 1600mhz running at 1333mhz no issues.
installed windows 7 64bit on a Samsung 256mb pro SSD and windows 8.1 .

you don't need to install this board to get it to work unless your using an ungrounded power supply . its like any other motherboard. I first tested it uninstalled on top of a rubber stand offs to make sure everything worked. i was worried after reading so many negative reviews though in the end it works just like the any of the other few hundred motherboards i have installed. also windows 7 installed just fine as long as the boot security not enabled , that is for windows 8 when enabled. its a bios UEFI thing. at least with this bios it worked that way. I was shocked as the bios is so mature and the auto update bios with in the bios worked the first time I tried it.

the graphics look good I mean as good as my Intel i7 graphics if not better. I even and am typing using a 21.9 ultra wide monitor at 1080p. also used it on my 42inch lcd at 1080p. looks fantastic
low wattage and powerful motherboard this is. the best I used to date. I thinking of replacing all my i7 with this board .

oh almost forgot its completely silent.
