3 out of 5 eggsEhhh....

Pros: It looks nice and does the basics

Cons: -The audio jacks seem to be very sensitive, as my speakers will simply appear to vanish (this could be windows, but rebooting and installing new drivers does not appear to help)
-Only the VGA Out works on my unit. The DVI In on my monitor works just fine, but there's no signal. Same with the HDMI.
-I needed to grab an older FM2 APU to update the BIOS to be compatible with my A10-7700K (This issue may be fixed on newer units).

5 out of 5 eggsgood board

Pros: Compact, and seems well built. If you run Win XP, you need to go into bios and change SATA from AHCI to IDE. Otherwise win xp would blue during install. I also disabled the anti-surge protect as it seems to be not working properly.
HDMI and USB 3.0 are a must for me, comes with win XP drivers.

Cons: none.

1 out of 5 eggsI should have known

Pros: I know that all my other parts are working, because I spent hours swapping them out trying to find out what was DOA.

Cons: none of the ports worked!

Other Thoughts: I should have known that this junk was not going to work when I saw that there was no cpu/apu cover, I saw a ten dollar cheeper open box version of this board so I knew to stay away but I bet some dumb in turn just grabbed one of those because it was closer, nothing was even sealed in the box or the outside of it witch proves my point!!!! Im very upset because I also had to remove my apu to return the board and I have hardly any thermal paste left!!! plus I have to pay for shipping off someone else mistake!

5 out of 5 eggsAsus Loyalty

Pros: It's Asus, so there will be no problem!
-Comes with the "Powered by Asus" case badge
-BIOS is very easy to setup and OC
-Really narrow board was surprisingly perfect for the case I chose.
-Only using HDMI, BIOS worked perfectly for me
-Of course all the features listed are awesome too.
-Way better than the MSI A-55 board that produced no video. That'll teach me to stray from Asus

Cons: -Only has one set of case fan on-board pins.
-The Front Panel pins could cause issues for those using a large graphics card. (if running CrossFire)

Other Thoughts: Wonderful "budget" build paired with
-this MoBo
-AMD A8-5600k
-8GB HyperX Fury DDR3 1866
-RaidMax Cobra 500w
Runs very well

4 out of 5 eggsAsus A55BM-A/USB3

Pros: Build a starter gaming rig for my brother and order this board as a combo with AMD A4 processor.

- Easy to adjust Bios
- Simple to setup out of the box
- Works Great except on problem.

Cons: There was only one small glitch I see in this board.
- When running off the HDMI connector when going into the bios the picture is scrambled and will not load the graphical interface for HDMI. You have to switch to the VGA to see the BIO's configuration.

Other Thoughts: Perfect setup to get someone started into building computers.
