ECS CDC-M/D2550(1.0) Intel Atom D2550 Intel NM10 Micro ATX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs No 64 bit support? really? 12/03/2013

This review is from: ECS CDC-M/D2550(1.0) Intel Atom D2550 Intel NM10 Micro ATX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo

Pros: I'd like to list some things here, but so far I haven't been able to get it to boot the (64 bit) OS disk I was migrating over from my older machine that this was meant to replace.

Cons: If the board has a chip that is listed on Intel's site as supporting 64 bit instructions, it really should mention that that support has been disabled by the motherboard manufacturer in the product specs. Whether this is a Newegg issue or an ECS one, I'm not really sure, but this past hour playing "why won't my new PC boot my definitely working hard drive" has really been pretty annoying. Now the goog has informed me that some motherboard manufacturers disable 64 bit. Thanks ECS / Newegg for sharing this information before I bought this board.

Other Thoughts: Unfortunately this has been a project sitting on a shelf for over a month waiting for me to find the time to do the migration... so looks like I'm stuck with obsolete hardware.

Jetway Mini-Top Atom Dual-Core 525 NVIDIA ION2 with WiFi /Remote Control Mini Barebone
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Pretty quick little box for the price. 4G memory support.

Cons: Video still a little chunky under Linux. Audible fan constantly on.

Other Thoughts: My initial complaints about Ubuntu lockups turned out to be a defective unit. I'm guessing a problem with the temperature sensing -- where the previous one was silent most of the time, the present working one has the fan cranked continuously.

2 out of 5 eggs Consistent lockups w/ubuntu 10.10 04/04/2011

This review is from: Jetway Mini-Top Atom Dual-Core 525 NVIDIA ION2 with WiFi /Remote Control Mini Barebone

Pros: Small, 4Gig memory support, decent networking support, good range on wireless, quick for price / size

Cons: Lockups about once a day w/Ubuntu 10.10 with NVidia-released drivers & with PPA nvidia-current drivers -- not related to heat / load (completely solid lockup; not even anything making into logs). Case initially difficult to open, but afterwards feels a bit too loose. Analog audio connectors on front of box.
