Pros: I'm either a Gigabyte fan or MSI fan, and I wanted to try this out to see what's all the fuss. I wanted to use Linux for this and it installed without a hitch. I installed it into an old desktop that I had. I used 16GB of ram and since it uses shared memory, it was so much that I didn't see any performance issues through linux. This system was more for browsing and all around system.
Other Thoughts: This is a great little board. It's not meant for gaming of some sort, but an all around system. Using 16GB is too much, but it works just fine. If you want a all around board, than this is the one for you.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This little board has gone through a media center to a media server over two years. I have to say that the specs of this board is quite interesting, they say that the max is 4 Gb of DDR3, but since I've tested it, it can be pushed up to 8Gb of memory. I'm partially tempted to go up to 16 gigs but we will have to see
Cons: the BIOS updating is still having an issue, but I don't mind that all too much, it gets easier after the first update. The other thing is that there is no information about the mini PCI express port or what is the compatibility for that port. I bought a 2 port mini PCI express card and it hasn't worked with the board and it hasn't been able to be recognized with Windows Home server 2011...Hope they fix the BIOS so it can recognize it easier.
Other Thoughts: Out of all of this, this board has done quite well for what it does as a server, I wish that the D2700MUD board worked just as great as this board has. Comparing between the newer boards, at least with this board, it is 64-bit capable and is not restricted. With the exception of the mini PCI express port, I got nothing wrong with it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel DH61AG Desktop Motherboard - Intel H61 Express Chipset - Socket H2 LGA-1155
Pros: I've had this for a couple weeks from upgrading from a D2700MUD Atom board, and let me just say there is a BBBIIIGGGG difference in video quality...Despite the fact that the board doesn't take your usual power supply, a laptop adapter is just adequate for this replacement.
Cons: BIOS updating is still a pain in the but because I have the first revision 23 and they're up to 105, it is saying that it is a legacy BIOS and it is unsupported.... Come on Intel, make this better for us here...READ FULL REVIEW
