EPIA-N disappoints. [Feb. 19th, 2006|09:45 am]
Luc Verhaegen
2 weeks on, and the same user is already selling his board.

This seems standard practice with VIA users, the dream of small and quiet turns sour so quickly. I've experienced this firsthand with the EPIA-M, and history seems to repeat itself with the EPIA-N. At least I didn't have to wait years on my EPIA-M, and i didn't have to order it from japan.

Congratulations again, VIA, another dissatisfied customer.

Same user needs the money!

I'm the guy running nanoitx.blogspot.com (http://nanoitx.blogspot.com). I was a bit disappointed with the board, but at the end of the day, I only got it to review (See itreviews.co.uk soon for my main review, plus nano-itx.net / epiacenter.com for a supplementary review).

If it did what I hoped it would, I'd have sold another machine, but it doesn't, so I'm selling the Nano-ITX instead. Never mind, no big deal.

VIA's answer to my problems, and the suggestion of a lot of readers, was to use Linux. This is fine apart from the fact that I have some Windows software that I like, so I don't use Linux as a desktop much. Sounds like Linux support, although broader, is also a bit of a pain to configure if you're not a linux guru, which I don't confess to be...

Anyway, can't afford to leave a £220 board gathering dust...
