Raider, how's that E-350 combo doing for you? I'm curious because I'm hoping to replace 2 of my machines with those in the somewhat near future, because of the super low power draw. Both HTPC's. My main HTPC will be converted into probably my existing i5 2500k when I jump to Ivy.

It works well enough, but I don't think it works perfectly, especially if you're going to want to watch full HD movies. I have used it only on a 720p TV and once in a while I will get some screen tearing from an HD movie. DVD quality media has worked perfectly fine. My wife and I are able to finish up movies or tv shows in our bedroom, which is what we wanted and what we got. All in all, it's a GREAT board for a secondary htpc. thumb.gif

If it won't do HD, then that's kind of a deal breaker sadly. frown.gif I was going to have it hooked up to a 720p TV, and a 1080p monitor (two different setups). And I do have a few 1080p and 720p movies, even some TV shows. frown.gif

Guess I'll have to look into the A4 through A8 APU's. I was just wanting to get a feel for how those super low power units do, because the cost of electricity running the machines I've got...really sucks.

I'm sure... Tell you what. Is this something you're planning on doing soon? I'm super busy this week, but next weekend, I should have an hour or two I can use to hook the machine up to our main TV (1080p) and I can run Avatar, which is probably my most intensive uncompressed bluray rip I have and then I can give you a better review of the board.

Also, I use XBMC with Windows 7. If its not too much hassle, I wouldn't mind getting your thoughts on it. It would JUST be used for media viewing in our kid's room, and in our room (he's got 1080p, we've got 720p). Our main TV is going to have a lot more power, due to gaming on it too.

I'm not in any rush though. I need money to get the equipment first, and that's hard to come by right now.

Hi Raiderxx,

Not sure exactly what problems you're having with the E350, but from research I've done it plays 1080P back flawlessly.

I've supplied a link to an Australian forum (I'm in Australia) and many of the guys on there say that the E350 is more than up to the task. A member named Zircosil has linked a youtube vid where he loads up folding@home and plays back a 1080P file no problems at all.

Anyways, hope this helps people considering going down that route!

Cheers

Sorry if I was unclear. It wasn't that I was having problems, it was that I hadn't done enough testing to merit giving a review. smile.gif
