  Product Profile : Elitegroup P4IBMS 
 
ECS' P4IBMS is one of the least expensive Pentium 4 boards on the market, but still maintains the quality necessary for larger scale OEMs.
Performance: 5/10

The board performs on par with other 845 offerings.

Stability: 8/10

Stability was almost perfect, save for one instance of data loss when using the on-board LAN. This is not a totally uncommon occurrence.

Quality: 8/10

We've yet to experience any difficulty with ECS boards outside the normal/expected failure rates.

Features: 5/10

Definitely not for then enthusiast, but the board's lack of features do serve to keep the cost down for OEMs.

Documentation: 6/10

The User's Manual is acceptable, although again, that isn't necessarily an important issue for a board that will come pre-installed in OEM systems more often than not.

Price: 10/10

The P4IBMS is one of the cheapest Pentium 4 boards currently available.

Overall Rating: 7/10

The P4IBMS does what it's designed to do, and does it well. An inexpensive, low key, but high quality board.
