Just received my M4... A little underwhelmed.
So, as the title states... I've just received my m4-ATX with the case and fan...
The actual m4 board is warped... Not bad enough that I'm worried it won't work, but enough that you can definitely tell... Could be due to the way it was packaged. The m4 housing was crammed in the box, while the m4 was just wrapped in bubble wrap. It wouldn't have been hard for the case (which was in it's own box) to have deformed the board.
Secondly, the housing itself. It came with an 80mm fan. I assume you're supposed to hook it up to the m4 board, but it just has bare wires to hook it up with. At the very least, they could have put a connector on the end so that I could just plug it in... Now I have to fabricate my own, or solder it on.
It seems like they threw in the bare minimum, and that's it. As far as the actual board, aside from being warped, it looks very well put together. It seems well thought out, and professionally made. It's really too bad they skimp on everything else. Last example... Most power supplies include the screws to actually attach the power supply to the case... This included JUST enough to get it to hold together, but notably misses screws to mount the terminal to the housing. It will work without them, but it would have had a much better fit and finish with them. I guess I'll have to dig some up.
Hopefully it works.
