Pros
-Small
-Inexpensive
-Has MoBo and CPU already
-Decently fast
Cons
-Needs more RAM slots
Summary
A great purchase, made this for a friend with for a small basic web browsing computer. Would of preferred that it had at least 2 slots of RAM, perhaps SoDimm would fare well too. All in all, its a great basic combination. Might invest in one with more then one RAM slot though.

Pros
-Price
-Power consumption
-Price
-Size
-Price
-Nice Intel touches & quality
Cons
-Crappy Realtek NIC (Intel makes best in class NICs, why fit a crappy 3rd party one?)
-PCI instead of PCIe 1x
-Onboard video must steal at least 32MB (why not 1MB, 4MB or 8MB?)
-No PC speaker header or onboard beeper
Summary
Bought this to use in a microATX case as a low-profile, low-power pfSense router. Install of pfSense 1.2.3 (FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE) was uneventful and the onboard LAN was detected (though I don't think it works in 1.2.2).

Did I mention this board is dirt cheap? Almost as cheap as a low-end CPU on its own! Like half the price of the cheapest i386 mobo/CPU you can build. Amazing. And it performs more than well enough for lots of headless server tasks.

I really love the little touches Intel includes with their boards. The motherboard connector sticker is genius. It's a sticker showing the diagram you find in the manual with the connector locations & pinouts, all nicely colour coded for you to stick somewhere inside the case so you never have to pull out the manual or flashlight.

Mostly my complaints with this board have to do with my using it as a headless router. For the money you just can't beat this, the performance is amazing for the price, and it uses very little power. If you're looking for an i386 router platform or low power home server/NAS, this is a great board, aside from the onboard NIC. It even has a serial port! Just use that PCI slot for a nice Intel PRO/1000GT and you're set.

Great product.

Pros
Small, easy to setup, quite powerful
Cons
Not really suited for anything more than web browing/basic computer usage
Summary
Work well. SATA I/O are fast and the system is much faster than an P3 system. CPU is as slow but all other device are fast and the system feels fast.
Good surprise. I have built 3 systems with it so far. 2 were to replace some fried P4 (1.8Ghz). The replacement feels faster.

Pros
-Cheap
-Quick
-Simple
Cons
-1 pci express port
-No gigabit
-Not covered in heatsinks
Summary
I bought this as a basic as can be desktop cpu/mobo combo and was impressed it actually hums along quite nicely and it was very cheap and the installation was very simple. The only beef I have with this thing is it only has 1 pci port and no gigabit ethernet and not enough heatsinks.

Pros
Very small; low power consumption; cheap!
Cons
No gigabit ethernet; 945GC chipset is very inefficient and uses more power than it needs to; only VGA out; PCI, not PCIe.
Summary
I love this board. It is suited for so many different applications. I'm using one to build a pfSense router for MLPPP DSL. Granted, for this, I needed to get an Intel Gigabit PCI NIC, as the onboard solution of 10/100 was not sufficient for my local network data transfer bandwidth needs.

I wanted something that I could run 24/7 with little power consumption and noise. Using an older system of spare parts wouldn't work, as the power consumption would be easily 3-4 times greater. I'm really saving in the long-run.

Note that if you want to use this as a media server, you will want to get the Atom dual-core version -- it has GigE networking instead. That way, you can free up the PCI slot for a SATA card instead, allowing you to install more than 2 SATA drives on here at once.

Fan is loud
Summary
I purchased this with a Apex MI-008 MINI-ITX Case and the Scythe Mini Kaze HTPC 40MM Silent Fan... I put WHS on it, 2 SATA HD's and an external TrekStor backup drive. All I can say is "Wicked!"

Cons
Not really suited for anything more than web browing/basic computer usage
Summary
If you need to put together a very cheap computer for a family member or friend this is the ticket. I put one together for my mom to replace a 10 year old junker and I must say I was impressed with the performance of this unit, not to mention the low price. She only uses it for web surfing and some basic word games, but so far no complaints!

Pros
great low power solution.
Cons
Fan loud, Lack of expansion and ram slots
Summary
I have bought 3 of these so far, they are great boards. I have 2 of them as servers and one as a standard desktop PC. As mentioned the fan is loud. If you want to change this fan i would go for a scythe fan. make the pc nice and quiet

Comment: With performance competitive with the D201GLY, and power consumption noticably lower, Intel's D945GCLF and its Atom 230 processor are certainly welcomed additions to the mini-itx family. At an estimated MSRP of $80, price and performance are certainly a combination that will rival the best of what V
