Pros: Does all it's supposed to.
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
Other Thoughts: Will likely get another Intel Atom / Nvidia Ion for a HTPC.
Will look for a more reputable brand.
This review is from: ECS 945GCD-M(1.0) Intel Atom 330 Intel 945GC Micro ATX Motherboard/CPU Combo
Pros: Great little board. Just built a pair of file servers for a non-profit org with this board in an Antec NSK 4480 II case, with a stick of RAM, a hard drive, a DVD drive, and CentOS. Makes a quiet machine with just two slowly turning fans: case fan set on low, and thermostatically-controlled PSU fan. Plenty of processing and display power for a server with GUI sysadmin tools and office apps.
Cons: Gigabit Ethernet chip, Atheros AR8131M, is too new to be supported by CentOS 5.4 initial installation. Simple fix: download and install kmod-atl1c from ELRepo (currently in testing repo), then enable ELRepo repositories to get future updates 'automagically'.
Other Thoughts: First found driver source AR81Family-linux-v188.8.131.52.tar.gz, then discovered ELRepo, an RPM repository for Enterprise Linux packages. Many thanks to the guys & gals there!
