It works well and is as easy as plug and play.
Great value, needs minor clean-up

For the money, this board is incredible.
The support is 4/5, there's plenty of information out there but unlike the "big boys" of the embedded world (microchip, freescale, etc) there is no professionally written documentation - just a maze of open-source community forums, etc.
The feature set is unreal. GbE, HDMI, etc etc, you've read the specs. It's insane that they can ship all this for the price.
The only real bummer that I had was getting it out of the box with no GbE support. It took me hours on Google to find out USB-OTG was set up for Ethernet and a week to stumble on a post about how to get GbE port to work. All of this could have been avoided by simply loading the board with the latest operating system that is on the website, instead of one that is years old.
Big bang for the bucks!

I just received my PCDUINO3 nano and I am surprised by the performance for so little money. It really kicks *ss! And that is an understatement.
Even XBMC is installed by default (in spite of all the other opinions / messages on the www)
Off course there is always room for improvement: the only thing that is really missing in my humble opinion is a way to get the pcduino to boot from the SATA port / drive. It seems to be possible according to some forums, but I would really appreciate if it ended up in the board-config script or an instruction on linksprite.com. This makes the pcduino rock even more!
can not beat the the price for what you get

It's a great little computer for a little price.
I did a comparison review on this versus Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone Black.
HARDWARE: pcDuino3 Nano wins.
SOFTWARE: BeagleBone Black wins (Easier to put Fedora on)
great deal good product

beats the Raspberry PI
