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.

5 out of 5 eggsLow profile

Pros: I bought the board has a combo with CPU & Ram. I planned to upgrade a old PC. The Board is basic with only 2 sata connectors and the onboard video is not that great.
The purpose was to install Linux on it, so far the hardware has work awesome, not issues with it, besides I have to buy a video card so I can output to thru HDMI to a TV. No issues with it, runs so quiet that sometimes I do not if it on.

Cons: No good for games, even though it can run up to 32GB.

5 out of 5 eggsNice little motherboard

Pros: This mobo has all the bells and whistles i was looking for in a inexpensive package. works like a champ compares to my 970 chipset at more money. picture quality with the athlon 5350is extraordinary. would definately buy again for my second HTPC.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsAddendum to earlier post

Pros: Again, fast and easy setup. In addition to my earlier post, I found the problem was in the Catalyst display driver. For whatever reason, connecting to a VGA monitor causes Windows 7 to constantly display the "removed device" sound. Plugged into a DVI monitor corrects the problem.

Cons: Could have more SATA ports on board...2 aren't enough.

Other Thoughts: All in all a good board.

1 out of 5 eggsFast, but...

Pros: I purchased 3 of these for a customer, seeking a quality pc for office tasks. Easy build and loads Win 7 Ultimate x64 quickly.

Cons: There must be something wrong with the chipset drivers. Windows constantly displays the hi-lo device removal sound. It does it all all 3 of the boards. So I doubt it's a hardware problem. I'm going to rma them and purchase another brand.

Other Thoughts: The board is great, but if the drivers don't work properly, what good is it?

5 out of 5 eggsJust works.

Pros: Not too expensive, from a mostly reputable brand.

Cons: The AM1 platform is limited to 4 PCI express lanes, on boards with multiple expansion slots like this one the lanes are divided among the slots.

5 out of 5 eggsCompact, solid.

Pros: - Spec says microATX but the size is almost close to mini-ITX. Very compact.
- Easy to assemble
- HDMI, DVI, and VGA all together
- 4 USB 2.0 ports + 2 USB 3.0 ports on the back panel

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: - Excellent board with quality parts
- Straightforward installation: maybe the same for other AM1 socket boards as well
- GUI BIOS: I do not like it but good for everyday users
- Matched with AMD 5150: quad-core with 25W TDP
- Perfect for upgrades or HTPC
