3 out of 5 eggs neat board but better ones out there 02/16/2014

This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

The board is pretty nice looking, fancy, etc. Not a bad price for the features but not a great price.

Cons:

You can find boards for a little more money that have things like built in wireless... or might take a BIOS update (that was downloaded straight from the vendor website) or maybe would work with a hard drive that isn't brand new (had to special order an SSD drive to work with this, delaying the project even further).

Other Thoughts:

Seriously... I've never seen a motherboard that wouldn't work with _any_ hard drive you plug in to it. Why won't this one? Here's what happens: use an older hard drive on this motherboard and when you install Windows 7, it asks for a driver because it can't see the board. Yes, we tried different SATA ports and different settings (ACHI/IDE), it was the new hard drive that made it work.

Oh, don't try a BIOS update either... it wouldn't recognize the three different files we tried. Well, it would recognize them as BIOS update files but then tell us it couldn't load it.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear ASRock Customer

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
For the HDD/SSD issue, please check mainboard has detected the drives at UEFI, Advanced, Storage Configuration.
Mainboard has detect the drives but Windows installation does not found the drives, that could be the drive need to be secure erase (regular format would not be work).
If you have any technical issues or warranty questions please contact our Tech Support at http://www.ASRock.com/support/tsd.asp. We will assist you shortly.

Thank you
