5 out of 5 eggs2.5 years and still running. Can support 16GB RAM.

Pros: - Bought this in December 2011 and it's still running fine.

- This board *does* support 16GB RAM total (2 x 8GB).

Cons: When I was using this under Win XP Pro, I was able to use the onboard video (Radeon HD 4250) plus another video card (Radeon HD 5450) to have two monitors. A week ago I moved to Win 7 Pro (64-bit), and I'm currently unable to use the onboard video card (Windows reports that the device is stopped because it has reported problems). When I had it working with Win XP Pro, I had to tweak the BIOS settings in order to get the card to work -- it's possible that I have to do that again. Or maybe I need to pull the HD 5450 video card, let Win 7 boot and install drivers, then put the 5450 back in.

Again, I just switched to Win 7, so I still have some more options to pursue. The worst case would be that I have to buy a dual-monitor video card, but I'm hoping I don't have to do that given the age of the board & system.

Other Thoughts: Current configuration:
- AMD Athlon II X4 640 Propus Quad-Core 3.0GHz CPU.
- Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes.
- Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB Kit (8GBx2) DDR3 1600 MT/s (PC3-12800) CL9 @1.5V UDIMM 240-Pin Memory BLS2KIT8G3D1609DS1S00.
- SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5450 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card ( 100292DDR3L).
- (2x) Western Digital WD Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive [bought back before they jumped in price].
- Plextor M5S Series PX-128M5S 2.5" 128GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) [to experiment with the SSD].
- Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.

5 out of 5 eggsReliable!

Pros: 2.5 years and it's still going strong

Cons: Pretty outdated by today's standards

Other Thoughts: Great board. The BIOS is a little weird, but it works. It's not UEFI, but that's fine by me. I used this board in a PC running Ubuntu in an HTPC setup for about a year without issues on the integrated graphics. Now its running Windows 7 for general web browsing, etc. Works like a charm.

2 out of 5 eggsShort L!fE Sp@n

Pros: Used this in a build about 2+/- years ago.
Was awesome.

Cons: Short life span. Slowly died on me. I did what I could to keep it running. Hardware changes , OS installs , yada yada.
It finally died on me today while watching a DVD movie.
During the movie , today , there were multiple memory crashes.
Machine locked up , and wouldn't reboot. Not putting anymore time or money into this.

Other Thoughts: R.I.P my pr3cious Biostar 880G+.
If I were Biostar , I would make sure I didn't make this MOBO available anymore. I'm kind of skeptical about buying from them again.

1 out of 5 eggsTERRIBLE! GOT 3 DOA!

Pros: Red matches my G.Skill memory. Nothing else!

Cons: I bought this board to use my old X2 240 Regor cpu in a HTPC I built for fun. Received the board and it was DOA so I RMA'd it and got a replacement. The 2nd and 3rd replacement boards were also DOA. I started to think it was another component so I tested everything else and it all tested good and the 4th board I received finally worked. I loaded Windows on it and put the HTPC in my closet until I got a new TV with HDMI ports so I can actually use it. It has been about a year now and I got the HTPC off the shelf in my closet to hook up to my new TV. I tested it before hooking up to my TV with my monitor and black screen. It doesn't work from just sitting in my closet. This is a junk board and I regret ever trying Biostar!

Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY THIS BOARD!

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Company

Pros: None

Cons: This board does not hold bios settings. Did an RMA, biostar returned the same bad board back to me. All these years later and the same issue. This company sucks, their tech support is stupid.

Other Thoughts: I will never buy another biostar product again!

5 out of 5 eggsPretty Decent Mobo

Pros: Works as advertised and hasn't caused me any issues.

- Great board for the price
- Has all the basic features you'd need if you are buying large RAM modules and not planning to set up dual video cards
- Have had this for over a year now and had zero issues.

Cons: Obviously, this is very much a budget board, so you can't expect much. I won't take off any eggs because I definitely knew what I was getting and got what I paid for, but here are the cons:

- Only 2 RAM slots (not too much of an issue if you get 2x4GB or better)
- Only one PCIe slot (again, not an issue unless you're hoping to run SLi/Crossfire)

Other Thoughts: You can't really expect anything more for a $50 micro ATX board.
