Overall and FV

Don’t let the test results fool you, even at 1/3 of the performance of its big brother the A8. The E350N-USB3 is still more than capable of playing HD content and that’s what it’s truly made to do. The Mini ITX form factor, all in one design, and low power usage all mean the E350N-USB3 is the perfect board for someone who needs basic PC or an HTPC. In fact during our testing the E350N-USB3 spent most of its time doubling as an HTPC and file server. A few large capacity drives thrown in with everything hooked up to a big screen and you have the power friendly board pulling double duty. Even while doing both we never experienced any issues, slowdowns, or hiccups. Gigabyte did a good job making sure the E350N-USB3 had all of the features we have grown to expect from a Gigabyte board including USB 3.0, boosted USB power, and SATA 3.0 ports. If that wasn’t enough you also have a PCI Express slot on the off chance your looking to increase its gaming performance in the future. One thing is for sure, you won’t need to put it to use for HD playback.

You might call him obsessed or just a hardcore geek. Wes's obsession with gaming hardware and gadgets isn't anything new, he could be found taking things apart even as a child. When not poking around in PC's he can be found playing League of Legends, Awesomenauts, or Civilization 5 or watching a wide variety of TV shows and Movies. A car guy at heart, the same things that draw him into tweaking cars apply when building good looking fast computers.

Small, low power, and cheap. Perfect for the next PC you have to build your parents. Or an HTPC for your living room
