This review is from: ASRock C2550D4I Mini ITX Server Motherboard FCBGA1283 DDR3 1600 / 1333
Pros: Large feature set
Many SATA ports
Low power consumption
Lots of potential
Cons: Not stable enough for business use
BMC crashes frequently taking entire operating system with it (Ubuntu 13.10 as of this writing)
Problems look to be firmware related as the problems are also found in the C2750D4I.
Other Thoughts: This board has the potential to be awesome but problems with the BMC and stability leave it off the list for serious production use. I have updated to the latest BMC and BIOS available from Asrock and it has helped some - now instead of crashing every other day, it's only once a week.
I'm using it as a media server so a crash/reboot every week is not a deal breaker but I would never consider it for business use today.
