4 out of 5 eggsUnsure

Pros: ECC RAM support & attractive price

Cons: One issue that I am having is a failed USB device showing in device manager. Loaded clean Win 7 Pro SP1, loaded drivers from CD, updated BIOS, got updated drivers from AMD. Nothing helps. Looks like USB root hub issue, but no vendor ID is shown, USB ports work, and there are no problems otherwise, but it is annoying to have such error on a new build. Another thing thats scares me a bit is that so many people are reporting other types of failures. I used this board to build a low power server and now I am not so confident about the choice.

2 SATA ports only :(
Single channel memory :(
AM2 coolers do not fit :(

1 out of 5 eggsThe Worst !!!

Pros: Small size.

Cons: Everything about this board stinks. Does not line up with back plate worth a darn. Drivers DO NOT work. Constant failure with either display or USB drivers BSOD!!! BIOS version was so out of date it was ridiculous (0502) updated it to 1101. DID not help.
Tried various AMD video drivers, still intermittent BSOD.
What a waste of time and money.

Other Thoughts: I have not purchased an ASUS mobo in quite some time for system build for a customer, and decided to give this one a try. I should have taken heed at the other comments about this board.
It is truly the WORST I have ever purchased. Last time I will buy an ASUS mobo. I am going back to ASRock, as they have been my bread and butter.

3 out of 5 eggsOk Motherboard

Pros: This is a very nice low cost board. I bought it for a simple web browsing/music machine for an uncle.

Cons: The install went fine windows loaded right on. Try to install the drivers for the graphics card and after reboot windows loads and the screen goes black. Roll back to the VGA drivers. update everything else, bios, windows updates, etc. Load on the graphic drivers and again the screen goes black after windows loads. Looked around the web really did not find an answer I liked all of them pointed to the board needing replaced. I decided before I RMAed it to Newegg, I would try the other output options. So I take off the DVI cable and connect with HDMI. Low and behold it works. So just seems the ATI drivers don't want to work with the DVI output on the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: For what I payed it was still not a bad deal, 3 eggs.

2 out of 5 eggsgreat board, when it works.

Pros: great board. lots of bells and whistles. stable. no issues booting.

Cons: failed 3 weeks after purchasing. i did not think it was the board. so i replaced the 3 blown out power supplies. i used on it. changed the case and memory. after the third time, i RMA'd the board. 1 week after board made it to ASUS, i got an invoice to repair this board for $160. mind you, the board only cost me $29 here on new egg. the board was still under its 3 yr warranty. the person who sent the invoice, claims he did not know about the warranty and continued to ask if i wanted the board fixed for $160.

Other Thoughts: ASUS has let me down for the last time. i will no longer purchase any products from them. this is not my first encounter with ASUS customer support. the first encounter was a bsod with a ASUS M5A97 LE R2.0. ASUS blamed Microsoft and Microsoft showed where ASUS made a driver error with the USB 3.0 drivers. 1 yr later, ASUS fixed the issue, but by that time, i was too angry with them to care.

4 out of 5 eggsCheap

Pros: It was cheap, the bios is easy to update and you can OC a little bit. works fine with the 5350

Cons: Only 2 fan connectors and 2 sata connectors, the fan was incredibly difficult to attach.

Other Thoughts: It wont boot with Hdmi plugged into the board not a big deal i just bought a used gpu and it worked.

1 out of 5 eggsSeems to best of the Am1 boards offered but failed

Pros: Brand, inexpensive, (2) PCI 1 slots, hdmi port

Cons: Board randomly loses the SATA drives attached to it. Bios shows hard drive, but loses it upon a reboot. DVDrom drive also disappears randomly.

Other Thoughts: I Have had built at least 100 computers and got this for someone on a tight budget for basically internet use only. This is my first using AM1 socket board. The athlon heatsink was also one of the cheesiest, cheapest low budget I have ever some across, but got it installed. After dealing with this really "budget" setup I went to install windows and first reboot, I received continuous set up screen and realized the hard drive wasn't being seen. Also had to install sata drivers during install (something I havent seen really since the 90's/early 00's. Went into BIOS and realized the HDD was not being shown as a bootable choice. However, I can see it in the sata config screen. Then I rebooted and somehow Windows came up but DVD drive wasnt working and wouldnt even eject. Determined to get WIN7 installed I tried installing via USB. This got windows about 90% installed then board lost HDD again. Updated BIOS in case that was problem, but ran into the same thing. & hours troubleshooting a budget board. Now it seems I am stuck with this AM1 cpu and a choice of only junk motherboards as it is not refundable.

1 out of 5 eggsAm I the only one with this problem?

Pros: The board is small and not really a complicated mess to put together into the case. I liked the price and I like the brand, which is why I bought this as a low budget build for customers.

Cons: I bought two, and both of them have trouble seeing the hard drives, so there is no way for me to install an OS. The BIOS sees the hard drives just fine, which is strange, but not even a SeaTools utility is able to see the SeaGate drive that is attached. I tried swapping out all hardware, and adjusting BIOS settings before coming to the conclusion that something is just plain wrong with the board, but I haven't seen any reviews with people having similar problems. I wanted to RMA, but it's too late for that now.

Other Thoughts: I definitely will not recommend this product to anyone else, as I am 100% confident all other hardware that was connected to this board is fine, as I have personally tested all my hardware.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Everything you expect in a mobo and more. It is expandable if necessary. Smooth operation from Asus. A simple build for social media and entertainment. I am satisfied for the purpose this board will serve.

Cons: BIOS take an experienced builder. CPU fan setup.

Other Thoughts: Asus would have setup screws for the CPU would have been nice. AMD had sent a four pin fan instead of three. Motherboard have four pin header for chasis and fan; but, a three pin fan will work.

5 out of 5 eggsAsus AM1M-A

Pros: Great board. In quick boot mode it finishes BIOS before the monitor wakes up so boot times are fast. Has connectors for everything you need for a little computer.

Cons: The biggest con would be that it only has 2 SATA ports but you can't blame asus for that as it is the limitation of the amd processor.

Other Thoughts: Overall great board.
