5 out of 5 eggsAwesome ITX mobo

Pros: I've had this motherboard in use for about 6 months. I personally use XBMCbuntu on it and have had no problems running XBMC with video up to 1080i. I have this box connected to my Samsung HDTV with the onboard HDMI port and leave it on 24/7. I was a bit worried about running the motherboard completely passive so I opted to use the included fan from the get go to avoid any problems later.

Cons: None found so far. If I had any concerns at all it would be that overtime my XBMC setup may outgrow the small 1.6-GHz Atom processor on this motherboard but so far there aren't any problems in sight.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for NAS

Pros: -Small form factor
-Low power consumption
-Integrated GPU
-Great for a server/NAS setup.
-Up and running 24/7 for 4 months and without a hiccup.

Cons: -Wireless is terrible, it just doesn't work. I have another Zotac board and the wireless on it is also bad. Not a problem though as I don't use the wireless function, but does cause it to lose an egg as it is a feature that should work.

Other Thoughts: Current NAS setup:

CPU/Mobo/GPU: Zotac IONITX-L-E Atom 330
Mem: 2GB Corsair XMS3 DDR3-1333
RAID Controller: Highpoint RocketRAID 2640x4
HDD: 4x Samsung 2TB EcoGreen F4 (RAID5)
SSD: 1x Corsair Vertex 40GB (OS)
PSU: Corsair CX430 V2
Case: Lian Li PC-Q08B Mini-ITX

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic for pfSense

Pros: Been running this as a pfSense router, and it has been flawless the entire time. In my application it doesn't require the CPU fan at all, under my routing load (max ~5% cpu usage) it stays under 40C, even when stuffed in a tiny 1u case while getting toasted by actual servers. Using an HP NC360T PCIe NIC. Performance is fantastic. Power draw is 50 watts at the wall.

Cons: The nvidia chipset is a power hog, it's a well documented fact. If they would release an Atom with a fantastic low-draw chipset and get system load under 40watts I'd be thrilled. Still, worth a buy if you need an appliance with low power usage and high reliability.

Other Thoughts: Worth the price.

4 out of 5 eggsnice little board

Pros: Nice quiet little board, using it as a server for a small business. Installed linux with no trouble at all, though I havent been able to get the wireless card to cooperate. Included fan is pretty quiet for an OEM fan. Had no trouble with setting up a RAID and didnt need extra drivers to run it under linux.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Photos make it look like it doesnt require a cpu fan, it does and is included with the board.

4 out of 5 eggsUpdate to 7/31/10 review

Pros: I put Zotac USA's web support and RMA process to the test, and they came through just fine.

Cons: Was not able to obtain non-ECC, non-registered VLP DDR3 DIMMs which my low-profile case required. (one or two manufacturers list such a thing, but just try actually buying it) Ended up buying an IONITX-F-E which appears nearly identical save that it uses DDR2.

Other Thoughts: I goofed on my 7/31/10 review: Motherboard was not bad, my RAM was, or rather, it was the wrong type of RAM, and I didn't catch that. Since I now have a spare motherboard and power supply, I guess I'm building myself an HTPC!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat board for small server

Pros: Works like a tank. Has a full PCIe slot which allowed the use of an adaptec 5405 raid card to be used with it. Had no issues when it came to installing CentOS on the system. Quite and cool running.

Cons: Haven't found any yet. Does what I planned using it for.

1 out of 5 eggsLightning strikes twice?!

Pros: Newegg processed my RMA and shipped out my replacement unit promptly. Looks like a good combination of features if I can get one that actually works.

Cons: Replacement unit also appears to be DOA (no POST, no video output, no beep, etc). Was very thorough in my troubleshooting (I'm not new to this sort of thing).

Other Thoughts: Am handling this second RMA through Zotac USA (knock on wood). Will try and post followup, hope to have better news to report.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat, but not awesome

Pros: - Tiny form factor (mini-ITX)
- Great onboard video/audio, includes optical/coax digital 5.1+ audio connections, but not the 3 or 4-headphone jack kind for 5.1 computer speakers
- Pretty low power requirements (my power supply is 150W, and doesn't use all of the power)
- Low heat production (all devices stay consistently under 35-40 degrees C, even in a smaller case)
- Decently speedy considering its specs
- HD video playback is great once it after a 1 to 2 second buffer
- Ethernet connection works great
- Works great with Windows 7 (I have x64 Ultimate running on it)

Cons: The wireless on this thing is horrible. Don't buy this mobo thinking that the wireless is going to save the day. The kit includes 1 antenna but should have at least two to work properly with N technology. Also, one of the antenna connections on the card is either DOA or is just failing to respond. Regardless, even though Windows says that I'm connected at 150 Mbps to my router, I only get 3 Mbps from my Internet connection (out of about 18 or so on average), and my download speeds are barely better than dialup (average of 600-700 KBps on its wired connection and same on my laptop's wireless, but only 40-60 KBps on the wireless for the ZOTAC computer).

If you need to go wireless, buy another mini-PCIe card to replace the lackluster wireless card that this comes with and get an extra antenna so you can at least benefit from some of the dual band technology. A USB dongle would work great too - this board sure has enough USB ports.

Other Thoughts: For some reason, ZOTAC advertises that it can take DDR3-1333 RAM, but after assembling my computer, I don't think it can. I haven't worked with DDR3 much, but most DDR2 is backwards compatible, so you're probably safe getting DDR3-1333.

The on-board video will share some of the RAM. I thought it might happen, but I wasn't expecting it. Get 4 GB of RAM so that you have enough for whatever you need.

I bought this mobo for a HTPC/home media server set-up, and it has honestly been great, I just wish I had known about the not-so-great wireless card before I bought it. After looking through the ZOTAC forums, it seems like there are a lot of problems with them. Just take that into account when you're weighing your options.

My setup:
HITACHI Deskstar 2TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" HDD (N82E16822145298)
Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1066 RAM (N82E16820148150)
Foxconn RS233 Mini-ITX Case with 150W Power Supply (N82E16811153099)
ASUS DVD burner (N82E16827135204)
Windows 7 Ultimate x
