2 out of 5 eggsGreat Deal...if it works.

Pros: Bargain mobo for the price. Plenty of features. Love the BIOS interface.

Cons: The same as many others: the NIC driver. It was shaky a few times but Windows was always able to quickly diagnose and quickly correct a few disconnections.

When the disconnects became more annoying, I went to the Newegg reviews and saw the complaints about the driver issue.

Unfortunately, before I could install new drivers Windows put the driver to "sleep" to save power. Now, whenever I try to install new drivers the PC quits at the very end because it says it requires a LAN cable to be plugged in; the irony is that a cable is plugged in but because the driver is asleep the system thinks otherwise.

Bottom line -> can't install new drivers to make LAN connection work.

Tried a million things to weasel the drivers on there. Restore original BIOS settings, try to install old drivers, other drivers, take the whole darn computer apart and put it back together again, boot with only critical parts. Nothing has resolved the problem.

Other Thoughts: I've had a pretty good experience with ASUS' stuff before. This was the first faulty product I've received from them. Harumph.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cheap board

Pros: - Compact design
- Easy install, both in the case and of the CPU
- UEFI BIOS is easy

Cons: - NIC was wonky, but when researching the mobo, I had seen ASUS post an update. DL'ed the update and it works perfectly!

5 out of 5 eggsAsus H81M-K ATX MoBo Review

Pros: Accepts LGA 1150 Intel CPU's (4th gen)
Has built in
Mounts perfect into the Rosewill Mini ATX Case I also purchased
Has two slots for DDR3 memory
Has one PCI Express x16 slot and two PCI Express x1 slots for other peripherals such as a WiFi card
Two SATA 3Gb/s and two SATA 6Gb/s inputs
Ouputs include DVI port and VGA port (but can only use one or the other)
Two USB 3.0 ports on the back
Analog audio ports are great!
Still included RJ-45 port (great if you don't have WiFi)
Asus quality build
BIOS is easy to use
Does NOT get hot at all, temperature stays pretty cool (for a Mobo)

Cons: Did not have HDMI output, but not really a con for this price. No stars taken away because you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: Bought for an HTPC build. It's economical and it does the job. Used an i3 Intel CPU and it does HD video flawlessly. Not going to play games so don't need high end graphics card. I did include a graphics card (EVGA GeForce 210) for HDMI out display.

Overall, I've used ASUS motherboards for a long time now in my PC builds and they've all worked flawless till this day. This mobo is no exception.

If you need a simple HTPC where you're NOT going to play high end graphic games, I'd highly recommend this mobo. It streams and plays HD videos flawless and gets the job done for an economical price.

4 out of 5 eggsGood so far

Pros: Easy physical install. Great BIOS interface. No driver or configuration issues.

Cons: None. I limited my review to 4 stars because I've only had the box running for a few light-duty weeks.

Other Thoughts: I wasted a few bucks on a separate LAN card based on a few reviews. My install of Ubuntu Linux 14.04 was the easiest OS install I've ever seen. No compatibility issues whatsoever.

3 out of 5 eggsNot bad, I suppose...

Pros: Cheap. Versatile. Good budget board, I suppose. I like the ASUS BIOS setup.

Cons: CPU fan header was dead out of the box. Simple fix, I swapped it to the sole case fan header, but annoying. Don't really need any other case fans running, as it's a tiny setup in a mid-tower case, but it's just an annoyance.

1 out of 5 eggsBuy another board DOA

Pros: The price of this MOBO is great!

Cons: We bought the components on sale about 4 months ago, and when we finally put the computer together the MOBO was dead! Quite disappointing for my sons first computer project.

5 out of 5 eggscheap and reliable

Pros: I never have problems with motherboards, and this one was no exception. It was an easy install, and booted up flawlessly. The software is very nice for such an inexpensive board. It's paired with a g3220, as it is to be used in an office setting.

Cons: none

2 out of 5 eggsOkay board, but bring your own networking

Pros: Easy to setup and configure, the UEFI bios is well laid out and easy to navigate.

Cons: As others have wrote the onboard RealTek NIC is terrible. I've tried 3 different driver versions and it still randomly disconnects and requires manual intervention to restore connectivity. Very disappointing coming from Asus.

Small amount of USB ports (two 2.0 and two 3.0) there are headers on the board to add more but they are not included and need to bought separately.

Other Thoughts: Not a horrible board, but the networking problems are hard to overlook.
