This review is from: ECS KBN-I/2100 AMD E1-2100 Dual Core processor Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
Pros: Low power, cheap, AMD... Plays 1080p video just fine in win 8.1. Great low power media box, hopefully it will have better Linux support in the future.
Cons: A bit flimsy, the serial port can easily be moved back and forth, I would not use it... It is more difficult to get into bios than most boards I've used. 1 star knocked for cheap construction.
Other Thoughts: I originally got this for use with a Linux file server, but I gave up on that. Way to much hassle for this board. Not really a problem on the behalf of ECS, more of an issue with AMD. Even win 8.1 could not detect any of the hardware correctly. Again not the fault of ECS. Overall a decent buy for $50 assuming I get my rebate eventually...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Tek Republic TUH-2700 USB 2.0 7 Port Hub with Power Adapter
Cons: Computer will not boot with this plugged in part of the time. Win7 does not recognize it unless you unplug it and plug it back in. Even then it's shaky at best. Linux doesn't work with it either.
Other Thoughts: Avoid like the plague!READ FULL REVIEW
