Most Favorable Review

Great little board

Pros: No problems at all with this motherboard, running Debian. Makes a nice small low power firewall/router/VPN/server with dual NICs. This board also has support for MSATA SSD. Built with all solid capacitors, it seems to be a winner.

Cons: The PWM for the CPU fan is unfiltered, which creates a high pitched noise unless the fan is on 100%. Not an issue for my usage.

Overall Review: My board is running fantastic with a 120 watt PicoPSU. (overspec'd to help lower MTBF) I have yet to test the MSATA support. Overall, this board does not leave anything to be desired for my application.

Most Critical Review

DOA x2

Pros: Work great if they work. Repairable when they don't work.

Cons: Arrived twice DOA. Both times the charge LED would blink red indicating a battery issue. It should normally be solid red while charging.

Overall Review: Curiosity got the best of me. The internal cell voltage was 2.0v, very low for a lithium-ion/polymer cell. The protection circuit on cell was not allowing current to pass. After getting the cell voltage up in normal range the protection circuit works fine and it charges properly. I didn't want another dead RMA.
