This review is from: ASUS M3A78-EMH HDMI AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros:

Vga, dvi, and hdmi connectors.

pata (ide) connector and sata connectors are conviently placed.

I can change the bios image to anything I want.

4 built-in usb ports and 3 headers to support up to 6 more.

Came with all the cables I needed.

Has PCI-e 16x slot for future upgrade.

4 Ram slots

Easy bios upgrade with crashfree bios recovery

Cons:

1 of the sata cables has a L hook on one end which is a little inconvienent.

I can't seem to get the latest AHCI/Raid driver for Vista 32 to install on my Vista Business 32-bit system. That may be because I installed Vista in normal Sata mode first.

Also the manual doesn't describe the bios options very well.

Other Thoughts:

Good intro board with built-in graphics. Later down the road I'll probably upgrade to a nicer graphics card when they drop in price.
