Pros: Small, fast and cheap. What more do you need? Works great as an HTPC main board.
Other Thoughts: This is a fantastic little board/CPU combo. I was hesitant to buy it at first, as I've never owned anything by Biostar and they don't always have the best reviews. Plus, I wasn't sure if the board/CPU could run HD MKVs and the like.
I'm pleased to say it runs great and has readily handled everything I've thrown at it, using the onboard graphics and sound. Paired it with a 275W PSU, 8G of RAM & Windows 7 64 bit and it runs like a champ. I use it off and on several days per week and it hasn't given me any issues.
Pros: Works fine. Like that you can change the face plate.
Cons: Bit flimsy, but not too bad.
Other Thoughts: Works fine, only real issue is that the SD card slot (which is the one most used nowadays), is kinda chintzy. Gotta make sure you have the card lined up just right and sometimes have to press down very slightly on the shielding for it to go in.
Otherwise it works fine, no problems, especially for the price.
This review is from: Vantec IDE to SATA Converter - Model CB-IS100
Pros: Works with no issues. Allowed me to use a perfectly good Plextor IDE DVD burner for my HTPC.
Other Thoughts: No cons. Knew going in that it needed it's own power, and they set it up to take the now pretty much unused floppy power cable, which saves you from having to use up a molex. Well designed.READ FULL REVIEW
