In terms of performance, these types of boards are mainly used for backup systems and therefore aren’t required to be very powerful. However, I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised by the functionality and quickness that this board had. The tests that we ran on this board brought back some very decent scores for a product of this type. If you factor in the price and the usefulness of this product, you too will be very happy with the agility of this product. It ran Windows 7 Ultimate very well. It also was very capable of displaying the Windows Aero GUI. Of course this board isn’t going to be very useful as a gaming system. Nor will it for video and photo editing. But that’s to be expected from this type of product. As a backup or a storage system, this board is more than capable.
