5 out of 5 eggs3 years old, took a power surge

Pros: Took a power surge, and is still ticking. Nothing has failed yet. BIOS is mouse friendly and easy to figure out. Love the features for the price and the durability!

Cons: None really. Seriously have not had any bad experiences with it.

2 out of 5 eggsAll Fired Out

Pros: works for the short term

Cons: major on-board component failure

Other Thoughts: My first TA75M+ ran fine for a solid 1 year or so without any issues before I accidentally shorted the board it by not seeing a loose screw left in the case.

I ordered another TA75M+ after having a good record with the first board and there's where the trouble started. Maybe 3 months into having the board, it started randomly shutting down and USB ports only worked intermittenly. I checked all drivers, etc and found no problems. I returned the board for RMA and it was decided the board needed to be replaced. I received the replacement board (3rd TAM75+) and the onboard audio ports didn't work so I added a soundcard. However, it's only been 2 months and again major problems. Random shutdowns and USB problems. It finally started smoking near the USB ports.

I'm sorely disappointed with Biostar's quality. Very poor experience.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes Not Work

Pros: Pretty. Easy installation, all pins are well marked, actually pretty good manual too.

Cons: Horrible BIOS--definitely need the manual!
Bought from NewEgg as a combo with an A10-5800k APU and 2x4 GB G-Skill 1866 RAM. It boots to POST just fine, will not accept RAM as 1866 no matter what, and will not load an operating system. I've messed with this off-and-on since December 2012, now July 2013, trying different USB drives (four different thumb drives, DVD-ROM, DVD-R/W, BD-R/W), netboot Microsoft Deployment Toolkit, SATA DVD. Windows 7 always fails, Debian, Fedora, and Ubuntu always crater on first post-installation reboot.

Other Thoughts: I bought the one-year insurance on each component--but I cannot load a diagnostic to tell me what's faulty!

5 out of 5 eggsMy first BioStar board

Pros: Ease of use, fast and plenty of SATA ports

Cons: SATA placement can be an issue for larger video cards. If running dual cards and something in the PCI slot heating might be an issue. Sound could be better.

Other Thoughts: Got mine as a gift, installed with a Masscool 7WA868 UNIVERSAL Socket CPU Cooler and traded the fan for a Delta 240CFM monster (board wanted to take flight), the onboard CPU fan plug couldn't handle the amps needed and died, But the board kept going. Sound is not that great and i installed a above board soundcard, witch is an issue due to the dual vid cards. if i had bought the board i would have went with the TA75A and had more room for the cards

4 out of 5 eggsWorked well with a surprise

Pros: It worked out of the box, it worked for 8 months. The DVI port carries audio, which was fantastic.

Cons: The HDMI crapped out after a week. Was getting really funny colors on my screen, lots of pinks and reds and greens.

Other Thoughts: Used this in an HTPC build, paired it with an A6-3500 and 4Gb of RAM. After the HDMI stopped working (switched HDMI cables to make sure it was the board), I plugged in my DVI-HDMI cable thinking I could at least get video and pull audio from the optical port but audio was pouring out of my sound system. I thought it was impossible but apparently it isn't.

I'm having to replace it now because lightning struck very near my house (I was using my desktop and a spark went through the mouse and hit my finger - the desktop is 100% OK) and the HTPC was suspended upstairs. Of course, the TV and sound system plugged into the same surge protector are fine but the motherboard got fried.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard

Pros: Good if you know how to set it up. It's not a typical beginners motherboard. But the more options the better and the price was good too.

Cons: couldn't control the fan speeds from the BIOS, the chasis fan is always 100% and rather loud.

Other Thoughts: I would use this in other builds but go with a PWM fan controller. It went into my dad's computer and he's happy just to have a working system again.

3 out of 5 eggsWorking, but will never buy again

Pros: Paired with an F1 3870k APU it serves as the motherboard for my HTPC and home central server. So far is working well.

Overclock features are nice, but won't get used much in this build.

All SATA 6.0Gb/s ports are nice.

Works with S.Skill 1866mhz 16gb DDR3 memory (2x8gb).

Cons: Call me picky, but this board lacks quite a few features that I wish it had. The fan controls are garbage and lack the real user control that other boards I own have. The BIOSTAR website is pretty weak as well for drivers and support. This board wasn't even found in their search function at first, I had to Google the board's name and then found a link to the motherboard drivers that way. The on-screen desktop apps to control the functions for the board are hodge-podged together and serve little functionality where you actually need it.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure if this is a Windows 8 mess or a BIOSTAR mess, but my HTPC this board serves is running Win 64bit and needs the Windows Boot Manager selected as Boot 1 option in order to find Windows at all. I usually like selecting my Sata DVD/Blu Ray drive as the 1st boot option in case I have a bootable CD in the drive bay I'd like to load before Windows, but when I select the Sata drive as Boot 1 and Windows Boot Manager as Boot 2, then my OCZ SSD boot drive as Boot 3... Windows doesn't load. I'm new to Win 8 and still learning it's curve (like to many others as well) so perhaps this is a Win 8 thing? Still trying to figure that out but for now I have Windows Boot Manager listed as Boot 1, then my OCZ SSD next. If I ever want to load a bootable CD into the tray, I switch the option in BIOS first.

4 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: It worked as expected. And, it's continued to work the last 11 months. It has 2 tactile switches and a debug LED which made some of the testing go a lot faster.

Cons: It's hard to set up. The BIOS is the most confusing I've ever seen. There are still some options I can't find without the help of the manual.

Other Thoughts: This was the third board I bought for a specific build; the first two failed miserably. As such I have some tolerance for a board that did everything I wanted it to, even if it is user unfriendly. The debug LED and tactile switches on the motherboard were helpful while I had the case open and not attached to a monitor, etc (after the first 2 failed I tested this many, many times during the build process to make certain nothing was messed up).

Assuming you don't change BIOS settings often this motherboard isn't a bad choice.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked very well, takes massage with Linux

Pros: Easy installation. I find that the board is plenty spacious and lets you have lots of slack in your cabling. The memory capacity is solid, and this board really flies.

CPU is also very fast, the computer starts up quickly. This is a very compatible set.

Cons: The onboard video can be a bit tricky with Ubuntu Linux since it's a Radeon. However, adding a Screen subsection to your Xorg.conf will get you to where you need to go once the drivers are installed. It's working flawlessly now.

Other Thoughts: I'd definitely buy this system again. It feels like it would be wonderful with Windows as well.
