Pros:

I wanted to build a NAS (6x 2t WDears) that would work energy efficient. I Initially purchased a D525 desktop board. Interestingly the Freenas driver would not support the NIC. Nexenta would not even boot. I proceeded to using a regular board. It worked, but did draw 140 watts total. if you calculate the additional electricity costs of running this for a year you might as well just go ahead and buy an expensive server Atom board. The cheap desktop atom boards only have one PCI slot, that only supports 133 mb/sec total of data throughput. So realistically you only could add 2 HDDs to an extra stata controller. This is not a problem whit this board now. 6xsata and you can easily upgrade with an PCI-express controller. My current system uses 55 Watt on load. 6 x HDDs, 4 x 120 mm fans (led, although I did not want) and one 140 mm top fan, corsair 430 Watt PSU.

Cons:

Now there is a D525 Atom released

Other Thoughts:

Compared to the desktop board this is expensive. The marked seems to be segmented in the way that if you want to use an Atom on a NAS you need to spend the extra bucks.
Not that the production costs more but that is how companies squeeze out the bucks. Other than that Supermicro is a good company and I could not find any other providers with INTEL NICs, 6 Sata slots and a PCI-express slot. I did buy this as an open box from Newegg. I paid 105 bucks, thought I risk it. It turned out to be the right choice. The only thing that was different was that it came in a different Supermicro box (other server board).
The cheap "G.SKILL 2GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Laptop Memory Model 2-5300CL5S-2GBSQ" works flawless
