2 out of 5 eggsBooting issues

Pros: Seems like a good motherboard, inexpensive runs well for what I can get it to do.

Cons: I can't get it too boot off the harddrive. It see thge dri=ve asnd I can install my operating system on it (Ubuntu 64 bit 13.04 or 13.10) but wneh I try to boot with it I get "Error: Attempt to read or write outside of disk 'hd0'." If I boot into Puppy (which is what I have been hhaving to use for months) it works finne. I can access the drive.

Other Thoughts: It's annoying.

3 out of 5 eggsGood & bad

Pros: - Cheapest Motherboard with AMD Chipset.
- Good service
- Small & compact.
- it does do the job
- Limited for AM3 processor (reason below)
- it's great value if you happen to have unused AM3 processor laying around, or really in tight budget to build new computer (used processor is hardly broken, and very affordable to get for example I got my sempron 140 just for $15) add 4GB RAM & decent GPU you can at least play something with this.

Cons: - First motherboard dead within a month, RMA process done within an hour. (I visit their service centre directly)
- 760G chipset, not support DVXA (Video accelerator for video), so it using CPU power to decode, if you using low end processor (like I did with Sempron 140) playing 720p video is barely playable, 1080p? just forget it.
in the end I had to add old HD 4350 to make sure everything is good for playing ver light games & video playback.
- Sound setup is probably confusing for people who just expect it to work after installing driver (read how to below)

Other Thoughts: many cheap motherboard (specially AMD) does capable to run new AM3+ processor but actually it need lot's of power to run AM3+ processor, this board (and other board within range price) probably barely enough to run 4-cores processor (even with Athlon X4/Phenom).

So why risking waste $100+ with $39.99 board?

- for Sound setup, after installing Driver & via Software, you have to unpick option under Via Control panel, because by default sound was delivered to front panel jack, so you need to activate both Front & Rear output to get sound from Rear output. Simple solution but really if you didn't know probably you will think the mainboard is defective & try tp RMA it or probably just put your board as a paperweight.

for the price, and right setup, this is very good board.
for less than $150 setup you could run any games with decent FPS.

1 out of 5 eggsDied before the end of the first month

Pros: Cheap
Easy to use
Gets the job done

Cons: Whilst using my computer, the motherboard had died, and no power transferring via motherboard is being used by anything that is plugged into it. Had this for less than a month, and it had already died on me. Quite disappointing.

Other Thoughts: Didn't buy through Newegg, but another online store.

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry to hear about the issues you are experiencing with your motherboard. For a no power issue such as you describe, we would recommend trying the following if you haven't already. Test the board outside the case, free from touching any conductive surfaces, also remove ALL the components.

Once you have removed ALL the components (including CPU and memory), connect only the power cable from the power supply (20/24pin connector) and CPU fan. This is to eliminate all possible causes except power supply and motherboard. Fan is plugged in for a visual indication of power.

To power the system momentarily touch pins 6 and 8 on the PANEL1 header, using screw driver or pen. The system should power up and fans should spin. If the fans spin you have power.

If you have power go ahead and install memory, CPU, monitor and 4-pin ATX12V connection from power supply and retest.

If you continue to have issues or have any further questions, please contact us.

5 out of 5 eggsNot bad at all for casual and gaming use

Pros: Good board and stable enough for Windows 8. I used this to build a system for a friend and her son loves it but I dont know about how she feels about Windows 8. With the right Amd cpu and Graphics card this can really be good gaming board as it has overclocking capabilities that one can utilize.

Cons: Non so far.

Other Thoughts: The price was excellent for the combo of Win8 and the board. $140.00 and I was convinced on the purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value mobo

Pros: Great value, loads of features for a budget motherboard!

Ide support, parallel port add on for uber old printers.

Support for oc ram and worked flawlessly.

Onboard gpu is solid, other reviews said didn't play on hd content without choppy playback, I did NOT notice any issues hooked up to a 1080p monitor and streaming 1080p content. The other poster may have had am inferior processor.

Cons: Had to download updated ethernet drivers for windows 7.

3 out of 5 eggsECS A780LM-M2

Pros: Nice layout of the motherboard as well as being compact. Easy to set up and ran well out of the box. Also comes with a three year warranty on parts. This is a nice straight-ahead no-frills motherboard that you can use for a basic machine, with your leftover AMD processors laying around the house.

Cons: I only rated the motherboard at three stars and this is why, "the motherboard is listed on the ECS website as being able to unlock cores. In fact after trying two known AMD processors that can be unlocked core wise, neither of them would unlock." After looking further on the ECS website they list actual motherboards that have this feature and the A780LM-M2 was not on the list at the time I viewed it. The feature that supposed to allow this is called "ECS "Special ACC"technology" and is not functional on this motherboard.

Other Thoughts: Other than the fact that you cannot unlock cores this motherboard, it is a very decent basic AMD motherboard. You should not be deterred by the unlock feature not working if you don't intend to use it anyways.

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry to hear about the issues you have experienced with the Unlock feature (Advanced Clock Calibration). Please contact us, as we would like to find out what CPUs you are using and which BIOS is being used. We do want to work with you and find a solution to this.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: I used this board to do a basic build for a client. She loved it. It's still running, as I have asked to make sure. Really good for a budget board.

Cons: None, I thought I was going to have a pain installing in her old case, but it went smooth.
