ECS NM70-I2(1.0) Intel Celeron 1037U 1.80GHz Intel NM70 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Inexpensive, low power usage, 4 sata ports. Their rapid response to a support question was also appreciated.

Cons: Functionality of the PCIe slot is questionable. I am using this for Nas4Free (FreeBSD base) and booting from an SD flash card. I wanted to add an inexpensive eSata card that supports the port multiplier function, but the two I had on hand (both PCIe x1) both failed to be recognized by the system. (They work on other systems under Windows Server 2008R2, so the cards are good). Thinking nas4free might have a problem with the chipset I loaded Windows Server on an SSD and it, too, failed to recognize either card.
I asked ECS support and they said their S6M2 eSata card would work, but no one seems to have any available for me to purchase. The slot is good, since an old nVidia graphics card worked. I see, reading other reviews, that the PCIe slot can present problems.

Other Thoughts: Were it not for the PCIe slot problem I would rate this 5 eggs. Perhaps it's something I've missed, but I really think that the PCIe slot is incapable of handling a variety of PCIe x1 cards. I don't have any spare NICs or USB cards lying around to test this theory, nor do I wish to tear apart other machines for their cards. Such is life. Had I known this was going to be a problem I would not have purchased the product.
