This review is from: Giada MI-E350T-01 AMD E-350 APU (1.6GHz, Dual-Core) AMD Hudson M1 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo
Pros: Price Onboard DC12V AC laptop style power jack Seems well made
I acquired two used HP boxes which housed a DTX board in them. I figured this motherboard with the E-350 integrated cpu and AMD graphics would be the way to go. It was. This board has been working like a champ for my dedicated HTPC which I call "miniPC" in my home network. My miniPC HTPC build came in under $300 - all components ordered here from Newegg in one order-

Cons: None for me, but the bios my be too basic for some.
Other Thoughts: My tiny "miniPC" only measures 9.75" x 8" x 2.5" but performs like a champ. It is very fast and responsive and boot time is the fastest I have ever seen. The only possible negative I could mention is that Netflix HD is not doable - but I feel this is not this particular MB's fault really. Either it is the smaller CPU's across the board, or (more likely) a Silverlight and Windows issue. Otherwise this little baby handles everything else beautifully.
