4 out of 5 eggsCheap

Pros: Cheap
Small formfactor

Cons: It doesn't work with my G.Skill 1gb sticks.
If you use a discrete video card, it will block at least 2 SATA ports.

Other Thoughts: it uses uEFI, and yet no GUI settings, even though it says it does on the Biostar page for it.

1 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for!

Pros: Packaged well, Complete documentation and all cables were in good condition.

Cons: The sheet metal I/O shield was VERY thin and not well made. It did not snap into place in any case I tried in a manner to give me confidence that it would not rattle or come out of place. There was NO SOUND SUPPORT on the board. It kept telling me to plug in the speakers, but they were already plugged in. Never could resolve this issue.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: + Price
+ PCIe slot layout

Cons: - Board screening mislabeled for front panel connections (had to double check against manual to fix mistake)
- Minor bloatware on CD (Zynga games...doesn't auto install, but doesn't tell you what it is until after you click)

Other Thoughts: Overall, performs like I would expect for the price. Booted right up once I fixed the front panel connections. No issues installing drivers (Win 7 x64). I would buy again.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for HTPC

Pros: Great board for a great price. I really like the PCI layout. This board allow me to install a dual slot video card, USB 3.0 PCI X1 card, and infiniTV CETON card. no issue what so ever. Biostar is definitely heading in the right direction.

Cons: Maybe USB 3.0 be nice, but then again. you get what you pay for.

1 out of 5 eggsFans Run All The Time

Pros: CHEAP

Cons: No S3...Seriously? I use between 10 and 30 Biostar MBs a month and I can tell you in todays market for a company to sell this design MB has made me think about never buying another one, EVER. Please rethink your marketing.

Other Thoughts: Buy a different brand, same price and has S3.

Manufacturer Response:

Biostar motherboards version 7.x does not have S3 support. These are cost down version to be price competetive in market on a feature not commonly used. If you are lookin for S4 support, please look for Biostar motherboards versions 1.x to 6.x, these versions will have S3 support. If you need additional info you are weclome to contact Biostar at support@biostar-usa.com or call 626-581-1055 menu 2.

3 out of 5 eggsMostly a good product

Pros: Runs faster than the Core 2 Duo that it replaced. Decent video

Cons: Short on expansion slots but the biggest disappointment was that it did not have an SPDIF output which my video card requires. Now I have to spend more money on a video card.

1 out of 5 eggsBiostar Hi-Fi H61S3

Pros: It works..

Cons: Doesn't support S3 sleep mode. Learned lesson. never go after the cheap motherboards. You sacrifice features that you need. Stay away from BIOSTAR.

Other Thoughts: How hard was it to add S3 sleep mode? Who wants their equipment to run 24x7. How dumb.

Manufacturer Response:

Updated information. Biostar motherboards version 7.x to 8.x does not support S3. The design of the version 7.x series is to be price competitive in a tough motherboard market. S3 is one feature removed to make the product cost competetive. If S3 is a feature you need, please look for Biostar motherboards that are version 1.x to 6.x.
