5 out of 5 eggs Very decent board for office use 01/18/2013

This review is from: Intel BOXDH61BEB3 LGA 1155 Intel H61 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

Decent support for older ps/2 connections and parallell printer port. Yet having a few ports for USB3. Coupled with a Sandy bridge cpu, this makes for a great office and light duty workstation.

The initial bios settings are very conservative and set to legacy bios, making it easier to set things up.

Cons:

Recommend updating the bios. It appears a large percentage of the boards seem to be a production run of bios version #042.

Ivy Bridge cpu support depends on later serial number versions *and* the BIOS being version #048 and newer.

Other Thoughts:

There's a lot of life left in Sandy bridge cpus. And if you plan to use a sandy Bridge cpu and Windows 7. I'd advise updating the BIOS no higher than #048. The latest BIOS versions add Windows 8 and related updates to Windows 8 favored UEFI booting and the secure boot can-o-worms.

UEFI bios is still a messy work in progress. If you have windows 7 and no need to use large 2TB hard drives and/or RAID. The legacy bios setting is definitely your friend.
