5 out of 5 eggsSecond one

Pros: First one was damaged in shipping. Newegg had a new one delivered before the old one was picked up. I only needed to call once! 5 stars for Newegg and Gigabyte, great light work inexpensive board.

Cons: none

2 out of 5 eggsWorks... but not for my purposes

Pros: Was easy to install, good documentation, worked the first time (to boot to bios).

Cons: Can't get multiple versions of linux to see the attached USB mouse and keyboard. Tried many combinations if BIOS settings, mice, keyboard and the OS doesn't see the USB keyboard or mouse after boot is complete. Only one version of linux (Elemental) was able to see them.

Other Thoughts: Bought this as part of a bundle as an Xmas gift for my son and it's starting to look like the whole kit is going to have to be shipped back. Bah humbug.

4 out of 5 eggsdoes the job

Pros: onboard video for simple home use
just enough for home use

Cons: so far none, this is for the parents-in-law and they just need basic home internet and office.

5 out of 5 eggsCheck Your RAM

Pros: It is a great basic build board, sturdy and reliable.
I have built about a dozen work stations for various clients using this board and haven't had a real problem yet. *Knock on Wood*

Cons: None really it functions as advertised.

Other Thoughts: I just received the newest today and had a No Display Issue (Speaker not Installed). After some thorough troubleshooting it turned out to be the Stick of Corsair that came with the Bundle. So I could have saved myself much time by not skipping on connecting the speaker.
For those whom are complaining of BSOD, check your Memory with Memtest x86.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Starter

Pros: Sturdy and well built

Cons: FM1

Other Thoughts: This was the first motherboard I used in my first build and I thought it was great, but if you have the money, you should get something a little better. Overall, fantastic!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Board with Linux Mint

Pros: Built an HTPC with this board and an AMD A4 processor and all works perfectly. Using Linux Mint 14. Didn't have to change a thing. This board & Mint recognized my wireless adapter the TP-LINK| TL-WN722N R without a problem.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: It's so small it's kind of cute. Well as MB's go. :-)

5 out of 5 eggsLow power

Pros: Decent options for a small board. Everything was fairly straightforward. Got it working with 2 case fans, a 1 gig hdd, dvd drive, an A4-3400, 4 gb Corsair ram, some random 1gb AMD video card....
And a 230 watt 20-pin power supply.

Cons: Nothing so far. Has worked every startup.

Other Thoughts: Running Windows 7 with a video capture card flawlessly. I know it's not the optimal setup, but it's an easy setup for random people to use.
I had a power supply set to go in there that I found out was bad. Only had an old 20 pin psu. Their website said that a 20 pin will work if it puts out enough power. Figured it would be enough while loading software, but did some research. As long as you don't run a server setup with 100 hard drives and 53 fans in your case, this thing can run off of a really small amount of power and power supply.
I'm impressed. Didn't think I'd ever find a use for that old power supply!

5 out of 5 eggsVery Pleased. These are a good buy.

Pros: Cheap and solid.

Cons: Would have liked some more USB ports and a USB 3.0 header.

Other Thoughts: Bought 4 of these as part of a replacement of some very old machines. The A-series processors, in my judgement, make for a very nice end user experience for normal computing.

Cheap motherboards frequently get poor reviews because people don't know what they are doing. The trick to making a cheap build is knowing what you can skimp on. No-name or built-in power supplies are your worst enemy. I built these out with Corsair CX430 power supplies. They've been rock solid, even in an environment of questionable user integrity.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't even bother.

Pros: Worked OK for the first few weeks i had it except for some issues with bad temperature readings.

Cons: The video connector is pretty weird and i had to modify my connector to make it work and then within the first 2 days of ownership the DVI connector came loose due to the cheap plastic they used to make it breaking leaving my video cable wire hanging from the back. After a few weeks it randomly died and when i tried reseating my cpu it came up with the heatsink like it was never even locked in and thermal paste got in the socket holes, but after cleaning them out it was still no good.

Other Thoughts: Well after this experience i don't think i will be buying another product except their cases that are a pretty good bargain.

5 out of 5 eggsMy error

Pros: Works, very affordable. Overclocks reasonably well.

Cons: Very minor gripe: not a fan of the SATA port layout.

Other Thoughts: I had previously reviewed this product with a 1-egg, stating that it had failed. This was my error. As it turns out, it was one of the sticks of Corsair XMS3 RAM that died. Off to review that.
