It’s probably no great secret that that flagship computer hardware products get much of the hype, and while more mainstream may not get the same degree of attention, they may in fact be even more important since they typically occupy a much larger marketshare. The simple fact is that many people simply cannot afford the newest premium hardware components. So the question of value then becomes perhaps even more critical, as consumers look for what can get them the most for their hard-earned money.
Along these lines, Intel’s H57 chipset is a mainstream component for the Intel LGA1156 platform, offering integrated graphics and a very good array of features that consumers in this segment typically look for. The H57 boards come in various flavours, and today we are looking at one of the micro ATX variety.
The ECS H57H-MUS is one such product, a micro ATX motherboard that offers respectable features such as SATA 6G and USB 3.0 for value-conscious consumers. Sporting a wide array of video connection ports and a reported launch price of approximately $150 or so, the H57H-MUS looks to be a nice option for LGA1156 value seekers.
Let’s take a closer look at what the ECS H57H-MUS brings to the game.
