The Item Description is Wrong

by fxsts on 8/6/2008

The product you are going to be getting here is Intel 945GCLF, which is a Mini ITX motherboard with on-board Intel Atom 1.6Ghz CPU instead of D945GCL, which is a Micro ATX motherboard with socket 775 with no CPU. Again, the manufacturer's part number, BOXD945GCLF, is correct, but the product description is totally wrong. The reason I know is that I ordered one, and got the cool Mini ITX board, exactly the one I wanted. The product is great by the way.

by Ben on 1/4/2009

I also received the Intel 945GCLF, the Mini-ITX motherboard with an integrated Intel Atom 230 1.6 ghz, which is also what I wanted. The "DETAILS" section of the product description appears to be correct, while the "FEATURES" and "TECH SPECS" sections are wrong. The correct product description and more reviews are here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813121342. As for my review, this is a GREAT board at a great price since I took advantage of buy.com $15 off $75 one day Paypal Christmas promotion and free shipping. I have a 3-year old E-Machines system, but that motherboard died so I bought this mini-ITX board which fit into my micro-ATX case. I know most people buy this mobo for a mini-ITX case, I bought this purely for the price as the cheapest, but quality CPU/Mobo combo out there. I am moderately tech capable, but I've never installed a motherboard before, and I didn't have any problems installing this on my first try. It supports front panel USB, audio inputs, and media card reader. It also supports a case fan, 1 PCI expansion, has 2 SATA ports and 1 IDE port. I love that the he heatsink comes already installed onto the CPU since it saves installation time and money (at least $15-$20 for a nice heatsink). I also bought 2GB of PC5300 RAM with this mobo, and perhaps because of the increased RAM, my system now runs faster and more stable than my previous AMD Athlon 3700 with 512 MB RAM setup. After a week of usage on Windows XP, I am able to do the following just fine: internet (both IE and Firefox), play movie files, play DVDs, burn DVDs, convert home videos to DIVX, and use MS Office applications. Since I only use this desktop for those things, I'm very satisfied with the quality/price of this purchase.
