2 out of 5 eggsDoesn't always detect boot SATA HD

Pros: The MB works as expected after the OS (Vista Business Ed.) boots.

Cons: Doesn't detect boot SATA HD reliably. Usually, on a normal PC, you turn on the power switch and the PC boots. With this Biostar TF7025-M2 MB, after it informs you know that the OS couldn't be found, you have to turn the power switch off and on quickly and it will then procede to boot to the OS. I don't see this problem fully addressed on the Biostar website.

Other Thoughts: I applied the updated bios and fixes DL'd from the Biostar web site and it didn't fix the problem. Applying Windows Vista SP1 fixed the problem temporarily but the problem reappeared. If I built this PC for someone I would have had to replace the MB.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat basic mobo, but beware newer CPU compat. issues

Pros: Inexpensive, loaded with as many slots and ports as a basic user would need, and has decent on-board graphics.

Cons: Doesn't appear to support certain widescreen resolutions or the new high-efficiency AMD X2 CPUs (e.g. 4050e) out-of-box.

Other Thoughts: I've been using these motherboards for several months now to build PCs for employees at my company, and they've worked great. I've only encountered two problems to date, and they're fairly trivial: they don't support 19" widescreen resolution, and they won't get past the BIOS loading summary screen if you try to use CPUs like the new AMD Athlon X2 4050e, even though it's a Socket AM2 processor.

5 out of 5 eggsHeck of a beauty!

Pros: Ease of use, 4 ports for fans on the motherboard, DVI plug onboard, ability to use two screens onboard(not great with less than 2GB RAM/256MB RAM to video), size, price, OC-ability, and Auto-OC.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: i've bought and installed about 12 of these over the past year. There is no more stable a motherboard than this, in my opinion.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's the little things that count

Pros: The layout with a different placement of the power connector and a clean, clustered arrangement of other connectors is excellent for use in especially small cases. Much better than other designs I've used. This is my second T-Series Biostar board, and I really like the level of fine tuning available to you in the BIOS. The board even has a fan calibration feature which worked great for quieting down my otherwise loud fans. I had purchased some odd spec memory for use with the board, but to my surprise all timing and voltage options did read correctly. This same memory did not auto-configure correctly in another board. They really paid attention to the details with this one. If you look at the manual, you'll find a power and rest button built onto the board; This makes initial testing very easy.

Cons: A bit wasteful on material packing it in a full ATX box.

Other Thoughts: Only 1 SATA cable, but 4 SATA ports. I really think they should ship them with as many cables as they have ports, or no cables at all to save cost.

2 out of 5 eggsWanted to like it

Pros: It was pretty good when it worked.

Cons: 1st board was dead on arrival
2nd Board "worked" but:
-Board would scramble which hard drive to boot off of in POST.
-When I upgraded the graphics card, the MB would not recognize it (the graphics card worked in other MB's).
-Bios Update caused board to die and not POST again.

Other Thoughts: I wanted to like this board, I really did. About 50% of the time when booting, I'd have to go into the bios and reset the hard drive boot order (it would reverse the boot order of my 2 drives and hang, I would go in and reset it and it would boot). I enjoyed the onboard graphics, but I decided to upgrade to a MSI graphics card (8800GT) and the MB refused to recognize it. The final straw came when I decided to upgrade the BIOS so the board would recognize the Video Card. I downloaded Biostar's tools, used them per directions, and the board never booted again. I'm done with Biostar. Stick with MSI or ECS.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Board For Low Cost Builds

Pros: Stability, DVI, It works.

Cons: Of about 5 boards I've picked up, two came with bad SATA cables, produced write errors during setup which is why I could only give it quadeggs. Board itself performs great but even if your SATA cables are working properly now you might consider replacing them.

5 out of 5 eggsWow!

Pros: This baby is rock solid. I love the layout of the board, everything is where it should be which means I don't have my front side audio and USB cables strung accross the board.

Cons: None as of yet

Other Thoughts: This is my new budget board of choice! Would be nice if it came with the brackets for LPT and additional back side USB, but you can find these online elsewhere.
