    Jetway AMD Geode NX1750 vs Commell LV-668

    Greetings all;

    Just when I thought that I was ready to purchase my first Mini-Itx board I find this one at Jetway.

    http://www.jetwaycomputer.com/spec/J7F3-Series.pdf

    I've done a lot of searching trying to find more information on this board (reviews/comparisons/etc) and only managed to find this review of the DB1500 (a bit outdated but I can't find anyone that sells it anyway). It looks like it surpasses the VIA EN series and it's specs are less than that of the NX1750.

    I've also found the Commell LV-668 board and know that a few on here have purchased it and are happy with it. One mentioned that it might have been a bit of overkill, but I'd rather pony up the dough now rather than buy another board entirely just to keep up.

    I've managed to find a price for the Jetway on Ebay and have requested a quote from a Commell distributor in Canada but haven't heard from them yet (I'll post the price when I get it).

    But basically what I'm wondering is if someone that knows the specs of the Commell (I can't find any specifics, like FSB speed) can compare it to the Jetway and maybe some opinions on whether or not one company is known for shoddy customer service or products (I've heard of Jetway's crappy sound on some boards, but it looks as though they fixed it and that is a different board entirely). The Jetway uses SiS chips for the north and south bridge and the Commell uses VIA chips... which is better/more reliable?

    Argh! just when I thought that everything was finally figured out....

    Well any help/opinions/horror stories would be appreciated.

    There's a discussion along with test results on the J7F3 1.4GHz board here - http://forums.viaarena.com/messagevi...&enterthread=y I know it doesn't answer your questions but at least you'll have some figures to compare.
