3 out of 5 eggsGood board, when it is working.

Pros: It is a good board, I haven't had any problems with the working one. I rather like the BIOS. It has a good amount of USB ports on the back, while still having the old PS/2 ports, which is good if that is all you have mouse/keyboard wise.

Cons: The board came DOA the first time. I wouldn't usually knock off eggs for this, but I recommended the board to a friend, and their board also came DOA, same problem as mine. The board itself seems pretty flimsy. It flexes quite easily compared to my old motherboard, which barely flexed at all.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't buy this board again, despite thinking it is a decent board. It came DOA the first time I got it, but the replacement was good. Thinking that this was just bad luck on my end, I recommended it to a friend. When we went to put his computer together though, we found that his motherboard was also DOA, with the same problems I had. Hopefully, he will get a good replacement, but I wont be recommending this motherboard to anyone else. I'm pretty upset about the failure of this board, as I like ASUS quite a lot. My GPU comes from them, as does my monitor, and those both work excellent. And this motherboard itself is also rather good, when it works.

1 out of 5 eggsBad product

Pros: none

Cons: Arrived DOA, this is the second Asus mobo I have ordered and it arrive DOA. I RMAed it and I had to pay return shipping which was $16 and now its taken two week and they still haven't send me another. Asus needs to get it together and learn how to make their boards worth the money. At this point they are just a awful at the motherboard thing. I know Asus makes good product because I have tablets and monitors and optical drives and graphics made by them and they are all great. But they don't know motherboards.

1 out of 5 eggsAsus - Never again

Pros: Work well, when it works.

Cons: Outright failure. Twice.

Other Thoughts: I bought this board a year ago. In that time, this board has failed twice. I'm currently RMAing it. The big problem here is Asus themselves. The first time it failed, I received the same board back "repaired", and 6 months later it fails in the same fashion. They 100% refused to ship out a new board (not this one "repaired" again) unless I used their advanced replacement. Which ties up the cost of the board until they receive the old one. Fine. Asus sup gives his word that it'll be approved and shipped within 24 hours. We're now at a week later, and I've only now been charged, not even shipped.

The only Asus rep that didn't lie to me, or speak to me like they were an angry child was a woman from their RMA department.

Between the obvious lack or quality in their products now, and the way their reps treat their customers, I'm done.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for posting this review and I on behalf of ASUS apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused you. It's unfortunate if you think the "Product" is a huge disappointment. On the contrary, there are lots of very satisfied customers that are having positive experience using the product. If in case you need assistance with the RMA of your unit please email me at customerloyalty@asus.com and put case # N1501101475 in the subject line for your reference.

Thank you for choosing ASUS.

Regards,
Mark

4 out of 5 eggsIt's okay

Pros: It works good, the bios is user friendly and I hope to overclock my amd 8350 black edition on it shortly.

Cons: When I tried pluggin in a device in the usb 3.0 port it didn't work, I had to go to the manufacturer website and download the drivers. Not sure why, but not really that big of a deal.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely buy it again, I like the features where it checks everything before posting.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great board, has just about everything needed for a high end build

Cons: the description is a bit deceptive saying there are 2 front side USB3.0 connections, there is (1) 20 pin header on the board that is considered to be 2 usb 3.0, I ended up buying a USB3.0 PCI board with a 19 pin header si I can connect my card reader and the USB 3.0 port on my case
