Not To Shabby

Pros: Its Cheat, It Works, Its Purple. Its not to bad. Seems to be running fairly stable, handles what i need for now without much problem. I can't say to much bad on it.

Cons: I had some trouble with my IDE, but i got that fixed, and the Network port on it is bum, but thats ok cuz i got a spare card.

Overall Review: Only 2 gigs of ram is a bummer, but you get what you pay for. Two PCI slots aint all that great for my situation, but again, you get what you pay for. If you just need a cheap lil machine for buisness for very light gaming, this is an ok board to go with. I won't call it a winner, but its not a looser either.

Quality

Pros: Deployed three of these boards utilizing Celeron D 3.46GHz CPU's and each performs flawlessly with Vista Home Basic and 2GB RAM. Actually they perform so and are so responsive that I am building another and will build as many as there are $25 Celeron D 3.46GHz CPU's out there on auction sites. I personally own a Dell XPS 420 (E6850) and I can walk away from it and sit down at the ECS Celery and feel right at home.

Cons: Torking down the heatsink and watching this board bow makes me think breakage, but it's all a figment of your imagination. More DIMM slots would be nice, but just buy the higher density media and move on.

Overall Review: NULL BYTE FOUND

Seemingly solid micro

Pros: Simple motherboard.
Able to make minor overclocking adjustments.
Economical.
Recently updated ECS bios/system drivers available on website.

Cons: Max mem 2gb? I guess.
Considering price....expectations should not be high. I had NO expecations. :-) If this mobo last a year, I'll be happy.

Overall Review: I bought a combo that included this mobo and an e4500 cpu. Needed them to revive a 3-year old dead emachine.
Just set FSB to 249.
Running at 2.7ghz (2.2 orig)2gb Patriot PC6400

good value, stable

Pros: Took my E4500 core duo from 2.2 to 2.7 GHz (with retail heat sink and 5300 ddr2). Stable so far.

Cons: I gather these boards have a high DOA rate, but when they're good they're good.

Wheres the Printer Port

Pros: Average Quality board does what its suppose to do. ECS Boards have been trouble free for us for
several years.Performs very well with Core Duo

Cons: There is no Parallel Port but
specifications and pictures both list and show the port.

If you need a parallel port for your workstation this board isnt for you. The manual lists the port as optional.

Overall Review: New Egg needs to revise the listing and make note pg the LPT Port. There is still a need for this port on many workstion office environments

great budget board

Pros: very cheap with certain combos, works fine with older 20-pin PSU, stable and proven intel chipset. Easily got E2160 running at 9X266, everything stable.

Cons: FSB limit in upper 200s for me but this is hardly bad for a budget board.

Overall Review: E2160, 945GCT, Corsair XMS2 675, running 266X9 stock volts, stock cooler.

Not Bad!

Pros: Price. Works with 20 pin power supplies (needs 4-pin +12). Stability. Proven 945G chipset.
Graphics are pretty good if you're not playing high-demand games. Will run WoW at low settings medium resolutions.

Cons: Memory voltage can be set to 1.8 or 1.9V. Nothing higher. Check your memory specs! I couldn't overclock past 2.5GHz (E2180) without garbled video.

Overall Review: This is not an overclocker's mobo. Doesn't have CPU voltage control or divider controls. Very good if you just need a stable machine for basic tasks and light gaming with older titles. The bios message "performance may be compromised" is a disclaimer the bios spits out upon any attempt at overclocking.

Might be cheap, but she goes!

Pros: Overclocked an E2180 to 2.8Ghz per core with FSB running well over 1300Mhz and 2 gigs of Corsair XMS2 pc800 running at over 900Mhz at cas 5(technically this mobo supports a max 1066FSB and max RAM frequency of 667Mhz) ...all super-stable under loads.
Built-in graphics fine for higher resolutions and has no issues, but can play very current titles, even at very low settings.

Cons: As another stated, yeah- the mobo flexes fairly signifigantly when the LGA775 Intel cooler is attached- only screwing the mobo down well and using plenty of plastic supports in my case seemed to straighted it out a bit (but that's not really a good thing, now is it? ;)

Overall Review: It's cheap, and it works. If you get one that's not DOA, (mine was fine) it should actually last you, (mine's gone three months so far) as is the case with most ECS Mobos.
