Great little HTPC board 08/31/2013
Inexpensive however very capable. Exactly what I needed. I've been looking for something as a second HTPC to stream movies from a server and off the internet. Windows 7x64 loaded easily. 4gb of Ram I had laying around, an old hard drive, etc. It pushes out 1080p movies with no problems. Sound through HDMI is good. Board is very quiet. Built with all the spare parts, it rated out at 3.9 on Windows 7. I haven't even messed with the BIOS.
Really, for my needs I do not have any complaints. No USB3 but no biggie. I am not pushing anything through that anyway.
This thing fired right up. The celeron chip is faster than the Atom or Hudson. Still not a powerhouse, however matched with the graphics it handles HTPC duties adequately. I will probably buy 1 or 2 more. For an integrated board, handling HD movies, at this price point, I do not believe it has much competition.
