This review is from: Gigabyte Ultra Durable 4 Classic GA-E350N WIN8 Desktop Motherboard - AMD A45 Chipset
Small, lower power, works fine for secondary system or light desktop. Has UEFI but also works in BIOS mode. Works fine with Linux. Oh, and reasonably inexpensive, too.
BIOS races towards boot too quickly, makes it exciting trying to catch it working blind because the LCD hasn't sync'd and unblanked yet. Not an issue once everything is configured; then it's a plus, especially with the system on an SSD partition.
Works fine for a bedroom system, flash games, online video, all the usuals. Would not recommend for heavy 3D modeling, high-resolution 3D games, etc. :-)
Oh, the ports/expansion are a little bit tilted towards legacy - COM port in back panel, even a parallel port, and the one slot is PCI, not PCIe. None of that is a drawback for my use, YMMV.
