Horrible!! Stay away
This review is from: ECS A75F2-M FM2 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: I bought this mobo because of the price and the RAM ports that it offers, and for the small size that it is. It is really rare to see a micro atx with 4 ram slots.
Cons: I bought this mobo as an upgrade to my current rig, after switching mobos, I went ahead and turned this jewelry on, to my surprise, no video showed up (i had a dedicated graphics card) so then i thought, okay maybe is the graphics card, i took it out, plug the hdmi directly to the motherboard aaand still there was no video. Them my hopes started tumbling, I read then the manual like any intelligent ape would have done in the first place and then i thought okay maybe is because it needs a vga to start and then i can switch it to hdmi, i went ahead to Wal Mart, bought a vga cable, tried it on annnnd nothing. On my last resort i thought maybe is my cpu (apu), and this is not compatible, so i took the motherboard to Fry electronics, bought another cpu (apu) drove home, tried it on and surprise!!! NO VIDEO. I contacted newegg for a replacement, i shipped the mobo back, after 2 weeks finally the replacement arrived, I tried it on and guess what??? Oh yeah NO VIDEO AGAIN. I noticed that whenever I turned the computer on, there is not hdd activity (because of the hdd led in the front), i took the fan out, and touch the cpu(apu) to see if it will get hot and yeah it was getting hot, i tried mutilple RAM sticks, together and separately. I did some research online and some people complained about the same exact thing. I did check that my apu or apus that i tried were FM2 trinity. Anyways just wanting to share this horrible experience. The price is really good, but the mobo is horrible, i would rather invest a little bit more and invest on something that actually works on the first try
Other Thoughts: I am returning this for a refund, i already spent 15 dollars mailing the first one back, here it goes another 15 dollars to mail the second one back, at the end for the price i have investend on this piece of *!$%# i would have bought something really nice
