1 out of 5 eggsCheap, but this motherboard is a trap

Pros: - Exceptional Price
- Ease of Use
- Hardware itself is solid

Cons: - if you get this motherboard, you WILL NOT be able to install Windows 8 or 10 of any version
- because you cannot use the latest windows. you will be more vulnerable to a wider variety of malware
- i spent $300 on the i7 4790 as an upgrade from a g3528 and it didn't even run on this motherboard even though the manufacturer's site said its compatible.

Other Thoughts: - i recommend this motherboard if you plan on never upgrading to the latest gen cpu's or using the latest OS's

1 out of 5 eggsNo responce

Pros: It did work.

Cons: I tried to load free windows 10 and could not. I spent over 6 hours with Microsoft and they could not load 10. I don't know if it was the motherboard or not but I unplugged everything else and it would not load. I found other people were having trouble with loading 10 with a Gigabyte board when I researched on the internet. What bothers me is I E-Mailed Gigabyte with the problem and got no response. I will not by another Gigabyte motherboard.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: None

Cons: Motherboard will power on but not POST and no beeps. Swapped memory, video cards, etc. Nothing. I've just now learned lots of people were having issues with this board. Money down the drain.

4 out of 5 eggsIt Works!

Pros: Cheap and works very well.

Cons: No HDMI output.

Other Thoughts: Hey, I got it on sale with the rebate for $29.00 so should I complain about anything??? Well, it has been sitting in my closet for over 10 months now and I decided to use it as a cheapo Linux build with the G3258 Processor and a 128GB Samsung 850 Pro SSD as well as 8gig of Ripjaws X Ram, all of which I got on sale over the year.

I just use it for some games, web browsing, youtube and such and what can I say........ with this combo, it is incredibly fast, just about boots to desktop instantly and is a joy all around. Linux Mint 7.2 64 bit installed without a hitch and was up and running in no time. For those of you using Linux for the first time, don't use the Gigabyte chipset CD at all to install as Linux will automatically install the right chipset, drivers and everything else.

1 out of 5 eggsNot Happy

Pros: Not sure, it won't boot.

Cons: I bought the motherboard with the Intel G3258 and it will not boot. Nothing comes up on the monitor and I've tried the onboard video and a separate vga card.

3 out of 5 eggsworking now

Pros: Good price, dvi and analog.

Cons: First one burnt out after 5 minutes during OS install. Would not post again after that. Got an RMA and the newer one seems to be doing ok so far.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great, no issues

Pros: Every part does what it's supposed to do. I had no issues with this board. What else is there to say?

Cons: No problems here.

Other Thoughts: Put this in a cheap build for my mother-in-law who just needs basic internet and office document viewing/editing. It does the deed and does it well.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks...

Pros: Bought this for an i3 upgrade for my fathers PC.

-2 display ports
-USB 3.0

I honestly never bought GIGABYTE before because I just had this notion that they were cheap in terms of quality. Boy did they prove me wrong. Nothing fancy about this board, it's just an H81 and does its job flawlessly.

Cons: Lacking sufficient number of fan connectors, but this is the case with most Micro ATX boards. I had plenty of 3-pin to molex connectors, so If you have a lot of fans keep this in mind or buy a fan controller.

Other than that - none.

Other Thoughts: Worked out of the box, no issue with RAM.

Disk that comes with the MOBO had such a smooth installation process, it has made me think twice about using GIGABYTE - satisfied customer here.

4 out of 5 eggsNot a bad board

Pros: Board was exactly what i was looking for in a simple build. Had to RMA due to it being DOA but the replacement took to the system so easy I forgot i almost forgot i had to have it replaced!

Cons: lack of extra USB ports, but again a simple machine for a 9 year old to play minecraft and few other games.

Other Thoughts: More USB ports would be great as well as more fan headers.
