This review is from: Intel Innovation DN2800MT Desktop Motherboard - Intel NM10 Express Chipset - 1 Pack
Pros: Almost perfect for a silent, low power consumption computer. With a SSD and 4Gb RAM it worked far better than than my older Pentium4 3.06GHz machine and is great for everyday use. XP driver support including Video is available on the Intel site and as well as HDMI, displayport, VGA, USB2, Ethernet etc, legacy serial and parallel headers are available on the motherboard. For 6 months it was an ultra stable, virtually bulletproof machine.
Cons: Unfortunately I had an early production model, and the motherboard 'died' after 6 months. No longer performed POST or power-up, BIOS recovery was not possible. Intel tech support lead me through the boarad diagnosis and concluded it was a hardware fault. Best thing is that Intel have a three year warranty and they honored it. Absolutely 1st rate service, polite, courteous, and no hassles at all.
Lack of graphics aceleration support, so perhaps not a good choice for gamers, but great for everyday use, Office applications, web browsing etc. However, I found that Youtube HD videos worked well when played via Google Chrome browser.
Other Thoughts: Would not hesitate to purchase another or a later board in this series. Board is unique and concept is fantastic (silent, dual core, fanless, low power consumption). Intel support is first rate.READ FULL REVIEW
