Serious Quality Control Concerns 03/01/2013
This seems to be a very nice board and quite small. Great specs for a HTPC.
I received, from Newegg, a motherboard with bent pins. Over the past 2 months (12/2012 through 2/2013) I have been in contact with Intel's support and they have sent me two more defective boards. The first crashed after being on for a few hours. At this point Intel requested to see both the board and the Core i3 processor I was using. I shipped both back to them, however they only were able to confirm receiving the board. I was sent back a replacement board with another bent pin and without a processor to go with it. I am now working on getting a refund, instead of replacement, for these parts through Intel.
If you have this board, and it works, then it is probably great as some of the other reviews indicate. Unfortunately, I have received 3 bad boards in a row, and that is a big concern for me with regard to Intel's QC. Especially, since the last 2 were received directly from Intel support (so wouldn't they check them?). Bottom line: this board looks good, but based on 3 bad ones in a row, I'd say it is a risky purchase.
While the boards themselves have been disappointing, Intel's customer support has been very quick to reply and courteous.
