This review is from: ASRock Q1900-ITX Intel Celeron J1900 Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
Pros: 16GB of RAM (low voltage or regular), 4x SATA ports (vs the 2 that comes standard on other boards), three video options, easy to upgrade BIOS, nice graphical BIOS - Just works!
Cons: None so far. The user manual is pretty thin on documentation.
Other Thoughts: I bought the GA-J1800N-D2H (N82E16813128688) when it first came out and that board is not very user friendly. This board is what that board should have been. Specifically:
* This board is easy to flash (you can network flash via the BIOS)
* This board has four SATA ports, two of which are SATA 3
* Accepts low voltage memory (that is what I'm using)
* Nice to have DVI, VGA and HDMI as outputs
This build runs Linux Mint 17, has 8GB of RAM (G.Skill RipJaws - F3-1600C9D-8GRSL), and is used as a Plex multimedia server. I removed the other board and replaced it with this board and Mint didn't skip a beat.
So far, I'm impressed and pleased with this board. I would buy this board again.
Pros: Quick, low power, small CPU fan
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: I put together a new computer for my mother-in-law because XP is EOL. I chose this CPU because it was small and low power. This went into a mini-ITX motherboard. My mother-in-law loves the PC and frequently remarks how quick it is. She mostly browses the web and does email, so this setup works fine for herREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small, inexpensive.
Cons: Running the F2 BIOS. Trying to install OEM Windows 7 with SP1 integrated (64-bit) and it is blue screening. Windows states the following:
The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. Please contact your system vendor for an updated BIOS.
I filled out a web form at Gigabyte's web site for tech support. I'm waiting to see what response I'll get. I have not tried any other OSes yet to see if those other OSes complain or not.
Other Thoughts: I guess I jumped on this product a little too soon. I'd like to get it up and operational. The BSOD just ruins your day...READ FULL REVIEW
