Worked for 5 hours 4/29/2011 10:36:38 PM

Pros: Excellent feature set and priced very well

Cons: Everything was going well until it died

Overall Review: I've built a few HTPCs and this was my 2nd HTPC in mini-itx. My first was the Zotac NM-A-E D510. I wanted this one since it had the LGA 775 socket to accept faster processors. My setup was a 2.93 LGA e6500 with 2GB of PNY ddr2 RAM. I had everything up and running, mythtv was installed and running smoothly. I then decided to test out it's HD decoding capabilities. I played ESPN in HD and it played very smooth and clear. I checked the cpu and it was chugging along at 38% (according to 'top'). After 2 min of HD viewing pleasure the system died. It would not power on. I would hear a slight click but no lights nothing.

I took this mobo out using my 450watt PS and put back the D510 and it was up and running. I swapped RAM and still no power. I reseated the CPU heat sink and still nothing.

This being my 2nd ZOTAC purchase I'm dissapointed. I knew there were bad mobo's but I didn't expect to get one.

I plan on returning this mobo and update this review once I get one that

Risky buy 3/27/2011 7:51:22 PM

Pros: "Good" performance, good features, heatsink reasonable for chipset / GPU, reasonable board layout given form factor

Cons: I cannot recommend boards made by this manufacturer whatsoever.

Poor QA process leads to boards being approved that can't do a very possible 2x2GB of RAM in dual channel. The approved RAM list and configuration test matrix on their site show almost no dual channel configurations (the [i]one[/i] they have is for 512MB DIMMs, hardly relevant), so I have zero guarantee that any number of RMAs would solve my problem. This sort of oversight leads me to wonder how bad QA is in other areas, leading to my conclusion.

Overall Review: There's no other practical options for a mini-ITX LGA 775 board that has an onboard GPU powerful enough to work in a HTPC use configuration. If you must keep an LGA 775 config for your own HTPC, I'd recommend going with another manufacturer's boards and tacking on a GT 220 video card. That would set you back $130 or so if you get very lucky. By the time the costs add up, you might as well just go buy a new system that uses DDR3 RAM.

Works great so far 3/2/2011 1:12:45 PM

Pros: Got it up and running no problems.

This is my first Mini ITX build, and I am very impressed with how well designed the layout is. I never would have imagined it would be so easy to install all the components with something this small.

The WiFi works well after I installed the drivers off the included CD. So far the only video/sound output I have tested is HDMI, and it works great.

I'm running XBMC (xbox media center) for Windows on it. and it has played everything in hi definition perfectly with no hiccups.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: Only time will tell if it will continue to perform well. I've got high hopes and so far I am very impressed.

Defective Product + Not Great Service = Bad Experience 2/14/2011 5:03:10 PM

Pros: The board fit the specifications of what I needed for the PC that I was building. Other than the problem noted below it has been working fine.

Cons: After only a few months the audio jacks for the speakers have stopped working correctly. It will only play from 1 of the 2 stereo channels. If I jiggle the wire it will play from both momentarily but then stop again. It is undoubtedly a problem with the jack.

Overall Review: I'm concerned over whether or not the parts used for the jack are low quality in the first place. Since it is beyond Newegg's standard return window I need to work with Zotac directly. According to Zotac policy they wont send a replacement until they have received the defective board. No exceptions. Unfortunately this board is a critical part of my entertainment system. So it looks like we'll be down for whatever period of time is required to do the mail exchange.

After this experience I will definitely be cautious about doing business with them again.

Pros: Good looking Mother board but never got to try it. See Other thoughts.

Cons: Be careful installing the CPU cover you will bend the pins.

Overall Review: I bent the CPU pins installing the plastic CPU cover on the socket. I placed the plastic cover under the hold down not on top as it was designed to be. Warning be careful not to do this. suggestion for Zotac, if the cover was made larger it would be obvious it went on top of the hold down.
