Azza PT-810DMC i810 Motherboard Review
Azza PT-810DMC i810 Motherboard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Taiwan's motherboard manufacturing industry is so tremendous that it can be deemed a cottage industry itself. I can't begin to count the number of manufacturers of mainboards out there...and I won't even try. All across the web you will find reviews for the big name boys such as Asus, ABit, Transcend, Soltek, etc. In this review, you will see the review for a mainboard made by a relatively unknown (well, at least I never heard of it until my father bought this board) company called Azza.

Other Features

Along with the characteristics previously mentioned in this review, this Azza motherboard sports of a TV OUT connector on the board itself which is used to connect to a TV converter to facilitate output to a regular television. Also, a couple of LED's are there on the motherboard indicating whether the system is in "soft power" off mode or if the system is completely on. This is probably used for diagnostic purposes to determine whether or not problems exist with the components on the board.


The Azza PT-810DMC's main appeal is probably the fact that it sports both the Socket 370 and Slot 1 connectors. This would be nice if one is sure of a CPU upgrade in the future and it does keep options pretty open. But the cost of a decent Slocket (Socket 370 to Slot 1 converter) costs around Rs. 450 ($10) so other than off the shelf upgradability, there isn't much appeal in this. It just adds to the cost of the product.

The 3 PCI slots certainly limit expansion options for people who may need it to add a PCI graphics card and sound card. Though an AMR slot is available, AMR products are not readily available in India as of yet. Other than that, performance is solid and it runs pretty stable. The 3 DIMM slots are a plus as it allows greater expandability for future memory requirements. All in all, this board is a decent all rounder for the entry level to business user. And for a price of around Rs. 5300 ($118), though on the slightly steeper side, isn't a bad buy at all. Azza's Air Bus is certainly handy.

Though not an active feature of the motherboard, it is certainly useful on those rainy days when BIOS damaging viruses attack. Users with greater performance needs may want to look elsewhere though.
