Has anyone used this board? I'm looking to do a HTPC build and for what I want smaller will be easier (its 10 cm x 7.2 cm). The 1080p hardware acceleration is intriguing, I'm just unsure if it will support Blu-ray playback (I think it will). There's virtually no second hand information on the net about this board other than a press release copied to numerous sites.

In the end this is just the reference Via Nano (single-core) platform. As such I think any review that has been published when Nano was released is still relevant. What could differ is peripheral performance and the general layout of the board, but this doesn't have any influence on, for example, 1080p/bluray playback capabilities: if it worked then it will work on this board too.

Take a look at this article, it should give a pretty good idea if the board you linked is good for your purpose: click
