2 out of 5 eggsBad Board

Pros: Appears to be a decent board w/USB 3 and SATA III. 4 SATA slots, MicroATX format.

Cons: Confusing BIOS. Doesn't appear to work.

Other Thoughts: Bought this for my 1st build. Paired it w/an AMD A6 3000. I had multiple problems with this board. Originally I bought it for WHomeServer which is apparently incompatible with this board. Being a newb I had no idea that boards were even OS compatible. USB 3 are not even available for WHS for this board. Many many problems w/restarts and WHS always wanting to Repair/Restore upon reboot.
Gave up on WHS and moved to W7Pro. Worked much better and was relatively stable until I would add new hardware and them major problems. System repair/restore is now etched into my brain.
Troubleshooting: Tried a new, better PSU. Tried 2 OS'. Tried an SSD drive and a spinner.
Consulted SevenForums for 2 weeks trying everything under the sun. IT friend of 20 years did his best. He got W7 installed again but after upgrade/reboots it returned to System repair/restore land. I had a hunch the board was bad and it must be.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Solid and reliable

Cons: Very basic features

Other Thoughts: I picked this up to replace a dead ECS board. I've had 4 Gigabit boards, all have been very good. It doesn't have the memory expansion of my old board but it has worked flawlessly. Very stable and, so far, reliable. Would recommend this board to anyone who needs a basic motherboard.

4 out of 5 eggsGigabyte first-timer

Pros: Great little board. Super fast NEWEGG shipping and great price. Love the fact that it reads ALL of my memory even in Windows, and runs my memory at 1866 Mhz like its supposed to and reads my hard drive sizes correctly!!

Cons: If your video card is large like my 7770, it covers two of your SATA ports, but I was able to use one anyway with 90-degree SATA data cable. Has some bloatware on the disk but it gives you the choice of skipping the installation of all of that.

Other Thoughts: My rig:
Thermaltake all-aluminum Mid ATX tower
AMD Athlon II x4 641 Quad Core 2.8 Ghz
8 Gb of 1866 Mhz Kingston DDR3
Centon 240 Gb SSD

5 out of 5 eggsupdating to 5 stars

Pros: Unlocks my a4 3400 apu
while not the best of the bunch as far as overclocking boards ,it has enough to keep most overclockers happy
The latest tech for a dead platform is nice,thanks gigabyte

Cons: most uefi bios's are easier to navigate
i dislike the way clear cmos is setup where you have to short the pins instead of having a jumper

Other Thoughts: price with rebate is a steal this has every feature the latest and greatest amd platform has motherboard booklet is well written,tho you must use your keyboard to overclock
most uefi you can just use your mouse.its solid and stable

4 out of 5 eggsall bells & whistles for FM1

Pros: pros would be the instant beep sound heard on 1st boot up.
you wont find many FM1 boards with sata III and usb III
very nice looking ,rebate price with the combo is a really good deal

Cons: board is a lousy overclocker even tho the combo amd 3400 apu is a very good overclocker.

Other Thoughts: there are better options for overclocking and the bios is a uefi disaster.im going to dig into the bios in hopes of finding an easter egg and while waiting for the rebate then update my review.

5 out of 5 eggsGA-a75m-ds2

Pros: everything it has works great.

Cons: not an overclocking board. knew that going into it.

pre-install drivers are a ***** but work great. should take an egg for this but will not because this board has served me well.

for the people that will have trouble with these drivers.

preinstall drivers will have to be burnt onto your windows install cd or on a (floppy which is easiest) or usb with a flash loading software.

Other Thoughts: bought this for my wife, she loves it.

5 out of 5 eggsI dig it.

Pros: Does everything in description, nothing super special, no problems. It was a good deal with the mail in rebate. 5 eggs for just doing what it was meant to do with no hassle.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Nice little board, slightly smaller than my old mATX board from Gigabyte.

3 out of 5 eggsUSB 3.0 startup issues

Pros: Bought for 6gb/s SATA and USB 3.0 onboard.

Cons: Boot time without USB 3.0 plugged in to the onboard connector is few seconds, with anything plugged in to the USB 3.0 onboard connector boot time goes to about 10 minutes, hangs on the bios screen but will eventually boot.

Other Thoughts: I get around the problem by unplugging the usb 3.0 internal connector when I reboot the computer, which requires me to open the case. I tried 2 different USB 3.0 hubs with the same results. I hope the 1st bios revision will fix this issue.
