Showing Results: Most Recent
Pros: Lots of useful features
Solid product construction
Easy to set up
Cons: None, so far
Other Thoughts: I purchased this to replace my Asus Sabertooth (which died) .
Seems to have same performance as that model, (minus one SATA port ) for less $.
Gave 4 stars, because I don't think any product is "perfect".
"Bang-for-the-Buck" budget gamer rig:
AMD 6350 cpu
Crucial SSD 240G
Patriot RAM 16G
(4) 1Tb HDDs
MSI nVidia 560Ti gpu
This review is from: ECS A960M-M2 AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Nice little board, that can accept 125w Phenom CPUs (see CPU compatibility chart)
Integrated video with HDMI output makes it ideal for a simple, straight-forward HTPC project.
Not a lot of bells & whistles, nor is it the basis for a gamer rig, but if you just want a simple PC that reliably turns on, lets you surf the web, manage your media collection, and watch video on your big screen, this will do fine.
Cons: I installed a set of G.Skill 8G RAM (from another project); would only boot with 4G installed.
(No big deal... still exceeds my needs)
Not actually ECS's fault.
So, check you RAM compatibility chart, first.
Took one egg away, for poor documentation. (anyone who's built a PC before, will have no problems, however)
Other Thoughts: I built a modest HTPC, for our exercise room, (with components from other projects) with AMD Phenom™ II X4 Quad-Core 965 CPU, 4G G.Skill Ripjaw RAM, Seagate Barracuda 120G HD. Uses the integrated GPU & sound, thru HDMI, to drive a large flat screen.
It's simple, and does the job.
This review is from: Bumblebee MiniBee
Pros: Works fine
Does what it claims
Cons: Wish the recharge plug was a standardized usb type... if I lose the one that comes with unit, I'm out-of-luck.
But, for the price, can't really complain.
Other Thoughts: Only had it for a couple days, but so far, I'm happy with it.READ FULL REVIEW
