Bios freezes and hangs from time to time *Probably not a hardware issue.*
Doesn't have a clear CMOs button and opps for the cr@ppy jumper method instead.
Doesn't have switches to kill PCI-e ports or RAM Dimm slots.
Bios update changelogs are too vague.
What the heck does "Improved Overall System Stability." really mean?!?
Onboard Audio drivers need a TON of work... *Pops and hisses galore! And a bug that sets the volume at 100% every boot... This was all noted using Optical Audio. and a Z5500 5.1 system.*
No onboard WiFi.
Overall I really like and enjoy the value and feature of the Hero Sku. wouldn't mind spending another $20-30 for a bit more though...
They need to add some things for their next go at it but I'm satisfied overall.
