Works, but has many shortcomings. 7/3/2016 9:44:43 PM

Pros: It works.

Cons: This cheapo motherboard doesn't clock properly, and runs my 2.2 GHz processor at 2.17 GHz instead, due to the bus running at 99.8 MHz instead of 100.

It doesn't have DisplayPort, although most don't so that's a minor knock.

It uses a low end audio chip. Again, not a big issue, but still a negative.

It would not initially show anything using the D-Sub output. I assumed the motherboard was defective, but then switched to the DVI and it displayed the POST. Strange.

A big problem is this board requires a 4 Pin Pentium 4 power connector. For a 25 watt platform? For Mini-ITX? What were they thinking? I didn't even consider this possible, so needed to get another case so I could get a full sized power supply with that connector, rather than use the one in my existing mini-ITX case. It's absurd.

Overall, it's a very poor motherboard. Everything about it is sub-standard and poor. But, it does work, so I can't give it one star. Even so, it sucks.

Overall Review: The BIOS is convoluted and does not give as much control as the Asrock AM1H-ITX motherboard. But, those are extremely unreliable, and this one works, albeit very poorly. I don't recommend either board, but the MSI has been reliable so far.

Nightmare to keep working. 6/6/2016 2:14:09 PM

Pros: Price was fair and the mini card slot was great for a salvaged Bluetooth/wireless card that was just laying around.

Cons: Cannot keep it working for more than an hour and a half without crashing. No temp problems whatsoever, but constant handler exception errors. After any driver update the machine locks up and requires reformatting and installing windows from scratch repairs fail every time. All things point to driver problems, but there is no consistency with which drivers are causing the problem. Using and SDD and can't find any errors with it. Might try reflashing BIOS since there isn't an updated one for mine and see if that helps.

Overall Review: When it works, it's great. Features are perfect. Handles multiple pptx, video and audio ques no problem

Great Mini ITX Board 5/19/2016 8:12:11 AM

Pros: With an AMD Athlon 5350 (Kabini) and some nice BIOS features and software this is a great Mini ITX mboard. In Performance Test scores the same as my Phenom 9150e Quad core with a Radeon HD 6670 using 1/3 of the power. Set processor fan speed to 0% or 12.5% in BIOS (under "Hardware Monitor" and the CPU fan runs at 750-800 RPM's - quiet and cool. Hybrid Sleep works great with Windows 10. Makes a great small footprint quiet low-power desktop or HTPC.

Cons: None yet.

Overall Review: Used the Apex MI-008 case w/power supply with this and works perfect.

Great For The Intended Application 4/30/2016 7:16:52 AM

Pros: Used this as part of a build for an office machine that needed a just little more power than the typical office computer; they'll be doing some light 2d CAD and photo editing as well as office apps. But we still wanted a hang-from-the-back-of-the monitor form factor. Worked first time, and while I haven't tried to do anything fancy, that wasn't the point. I've used MSI boards in the past and found them to be simple to use, reliable and well made.

Cons: One weird quirk... if you zoom in on the picture, you can see that the SATA ports face each other rather than being oriented in the same direction. No big deal, but it made me a little paranoid when I first saw it until I was able to confirm that they were in fact supposed to be that way. Unfortunately, the right angle cable included (one straight on both ends, one straight/ right angle) is oriented so that it covers the other port. The case that I used, the drives are under and parallel the board, so the right angle one won't work on that side. Which means that if the person for whom this machine was built wants to add a second drive, it will require two straight-straight cables.

Overall Review: Minor glitch with my Newegg account... when they switched CC companies my account got reset somehow and my display name got changed to my Wife's first name and initial. I haven't tracked it down yet, but fwiw, I usually use the handle AnXRockStar for my reviews.

Seems to work well 4/6/2016 2:57:55 PM

Pros: -Works well with freenas!
-The birds were right! (Cheap Cheap Cheap.... ....)
-It does have a slot for mini PCI-e wifi!

Cons: -not tons of features, not a whole lot of options in the BIOS (ie no overclocking, but...its kabini...)

Overall Review: -For a cheap build this is great, and i highly recommend, but i like the ASROCK AM1H-ITX better because of its OS options, "bonus" software, and driver support as well as the laptop jack power capabilities.
