1 out of 5 eggsHORIBLE MOTHERBOARD

Pros: NONE THAT I CAN THINK OF

Cons: ON BOARD NETWORK ADAPTER CONSTANTLY LOOSES CONNECTION WITH NETWORK. HAVE TO REBOOT TO CONNECT BACK UP

Other Thoughts: I'VE BEEN EXCLUSIVELY USING ASUS MOTHERBOARDS FOR MY CUSTOMERS COMPUTERS FOR OVER 3 YEARS NOW. THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FLAWLESS IN THEIR PERFORMANCE UNTIL NOW. I.VE HAD 3 OF THESE MOTHERBOARDS OVER THE PAST 2 MONTHS DO THE EXACT SAME THING, LOOSE NETWORK CONNECTION. I REPLACED EVERYTHING IN THE NETWORK TO TEST FOR THE PROBLEM. CABLE MODEM, NETWORK CABLES, ROUTER AND IT ALWAYS LOOSES CONNECTION. I FINALLY INSTALLED A PCIe NETWORK ADAPTER IN ONE OF THE BOARDS AND THE ADAPTER WORKS PERFECT. I KNOW THIS IS A LOW END ASUS BOARD BUT I'VE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH THEIR PRICE POINT BOARDS IN THE PAST. I WOULD DEFINITELY STAY AWAY FROM THIS MOTHERBOARD. ALL YOU'LL HAVE IS HEADACHES. I CAN SEE HAVING PROBLEMS WITH ONE BOARD, BUT THREE IN A ROW, JUNK!

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsSmall and Fast. did have install issue

Pros: Small form factor, good performance.

Cons: Confusing bios.

Other Thoughts: Initial driver install did not detect onboard NIC. Had to perform a "Clear RTC RAM" procedure. Thought I had a DOA at first. After that first bump in the road, the install went smoothly (Windows 7)

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Motherboard

Pros: This motherboard is very flexible, more than enough for the everyday user. Supports up to 16 GB of memory, supports up to Core i7, it has USB 3.0 and all SATA 6 Gb per second ports along with gigabit ethernet. Add to that the fact that it has the aces name behind it and you've got a very solid and very reliable board.

Speaking to this motherboard flexibility it has PCI express allowing for the addition of a dedicated graphics card if ever the need arises as well as DVI, VGA and HDMI output for onboard video allowing for both older and newer monitors to be used.

The fact that it supports all the way up to Intel Core i7 as mentioned earlier is a plus

Cons: The only thing I don't like is that this motherboard does not have a front panel connector for USB 3.0

Other Thoughts: I paired this motherboard with an Intel core i3 4130 with 8 GB of RAM and a 240 GB solid-state drive. The people whom this computer was built for don't do anything other than basic everyday tasks but they love the fact that this motherboard has the expandability to be sped up exponentially in the future by just dropping in a new processor and more memory without having to rebuild the entire machine. Coming from a seven-year-old Dell desktop machine which ran Windows Vista they could not be happier.

1 out of 5 eggsgarbage, ethernet port fails constantly

Pros: inexpensive, good warranty. thank goodness for the warranty, you'll need it if you buy this board.

Cons: Ethernet connection fails multiple times daily. says there is no cable connected or no internet, requires me to reboot constantly to keep my internet connection.

Other Thoughts: ill never buy another asus product, this is my business machine and cant afford to have to constantly reboot because of the onboard Ethernet port..

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsASUS H81M-K LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: good mobo so far for what I got for.

Cons: gave 4 eggs for it because didn't like the fact you gotta goto asus and download updated bios to flash that's a pain so took 1 egg away for that and yes it has to be updated to use any 4th gem cpu or you will have blue screen problems. but hey its only 53 bucks

4 out of 5 eggsGreat quality for the price

Pros: The H81M-K worked great for my first build for an value gaming pc. It was fairly easy installation with the cpu.

Cons: The only problems I had with this H81M-K was that it didnt have a usb 3.0 internal connector, which sucks since my case has 2 usb 3.0 in the front which is atm completely useless (will buy an adapter in the foreseeable future). Also the quality of the I/O shield felt like it was plastic but not. I also found it hard to get the I/O and the motherboard to fit together while building it into the case.

3 out of 5 eggsasus name, inexpensive board

Pros: I needed a micro atx board and chose this one because of the asus name, price and it had just enough features to make it a perfect fit for a build I was doing for my parents. Paired with 4 gigs of Ripjaws ram, a i3 cpu and a ssd this machine was really speedy.

Cons: After building the pc and only running it one night for a total of 3 hours I put it in the case box for storage until a home remodel was complete. The first time I tried to boot it at my parents, it did not start, no video output, no beep. I don't know what happened to it in the months of storage but it must have died when I turned it on again. Tried all the suspected items before I bought a replacement board and it worked right away.

Other Thoughts: Because I stored it for 6 months before finding out it didn't work anymore I am out a RMA and had to buy another one. Not real happy.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks better than I thought.

Pros: Cheap
Easy to work on
UEFI bios is nice.

Cons: None really

Other Thoughts: I wanted to build a cheap basic pc for 7 year old nephew who wants to surf the internet and play Minecraft, this was ideal, paired it with cheap Haswell cpu and single stick of PC 1600 ram and an old 7850 and voila.
Can't go wrong.
