Intel BOXD525MW Intel Atom D525@ 1.8GHz (Dual Core) BGA559 Intel NM10 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

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.

4 out of 5 eggs Great with one drawback 04/06/2013

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...

Pros: I've had this for about 2 weeks and with this little system, it has done a very good job as a media center processor. Have seen this and was trying to compare it with the i3 processor and the minor difference is just the i3 uses SSD caching which I thought it was important, but when I got this, I hooked it up and I still haven't seen any lags with my SSD drive. Plus since it's a 65W processor, the motherboard that I purchased is technically a laptop motherboard and it has done extremely well with it.

Cons: Got this processor on sale, and I put this thing to the test when it came with bombarding it with how many programs it can use at the same time. It handled it very well for a dual core processor.

Other Thoughts: I am using this in my media center and it has done very nicely.
