To the best of our knowledge, ECS just did something no other motherboard maker has yet done. What is it, you ask? They jumped on the 3D bandwagon by releasing a new motherboard "specially designed for 3D home theater" setups.

ECS brings a bunch of buzzwords to the table to promote its latest micro-ATX motherboard. In terms of 3D, the ECS Black Deluxe H67H2-M fully supports HDCP and 3D Blu-ray movies without installing a discrete graphics card. There's also ECS' "4most Display Design," which means it comes equipped with DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort, and VGA outputs.


Other notable features include:
  • Two USB 3.0 ports
  • Supports 2x SATA 6Gbps, 1x eSATA 3Gbps, 3x SATA 3Gbps, 1x SATA to eSATA cable
  • Easy Debug LED display
  • Anti-crash USB/Video connectors
  • All solid capacitors
  • 8 channel HD audio with S/PDIF out
  • Qooltech III dual-heatpipe cooling solution
  • Powered USB ports capable of juicing Apple devices
  • Onboard Power and Reset buttons
It's actually a nice looking board (from what we've seen in pictures) with a fairly robust feature-set for a mATX design. No word yet on when it will be available or what it will cost.

If their QC hasnt changed in the last 3 years then this will be a steaming pile of cow dung. I have yet to have an ECS mobo last more than a few hours without some peice of hardware on the mobo going up in smoke literally. I avoid ECS like the plague. I still tell people that ECS stands for Extremely Cheap S***. My best guess is you will use that debug LED more than any other feature on that board.

I don't know through my build history I have actually had 2 builds were I used an ECS, and had phenomenal results. The first was an Athlon XP I believe, and the second a Athlon 64 2nd or 3rd generation. They both served me flawlessly for a couple of years even OC'd with no issues etc, at all. I think with ECS boards as well as value boards in general you have to know them inside and out before making a purchase (hopefully with reviews from active users as a first step)!

I've had bad luck with them too. So, I don't buy them.

Aren't most of the H67 boards supporting HDMI playback without a discrete Video Card?
