Pros: Slim, tiny size. Notebook power adapter can be used as a power supply. Lots of USB connections. WIFI card.
Cons: Tried to install Openelec (xbmc (new name kodi) based embedded media player. It works but have well know problem with Intel Graphics. Without using hardware acceleration it is too slow to play 1080p video. Minus 1 egg.
Other Thoughts: I've build a tiny backup server (booksize) based on nas4free system on a flashdrive and two 3 TB hard drives. This board actually has 3 SATA ports but only 2 SATA power cables. Third cable is for mSATA.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ECS KBN-I/2100 AMD E1-2100 Dual Core processor Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
Pros: Video and cpu good enough for media player. I used Openelec which is embedded xbmc (new name kodi) that one can install on flash drive . No noise, power consumption is little.
Cons: Network adapter (NIC) doesn't work on freebsd based nas4free and freenas systems. only 2 SATA ports.
Other Thoughts: It is possible to make a recent FreeBSD snapshot and make NIC (network) on FreeBSD system work but it is not a piece of cake as well it won't be an embedded system that one can install on a flashdrive and keep SATA ports for data.READ FULL REVIEW

Cons: I have submitted all requested documents but didn't get rebate. After contacting to them (it was really hard) they said that I already claimed it but I'm not. They used one promo offer code for different rebates on different items. So I didn't get rebate for their mistake.READ FULL REVIEW
