2 out of 5 eggsD.E.D. Dead

Pros: It was cheap and allowed me to move up from my Athlon XP.

Cons: Very flakey motherboard. It had problems trying to boot into Windows often. Just recently it died. The fans and lights come on but it will not POST.

Other Thoughts: This is the last time I buy a no-name oem budget board.

3 out of 5 eggsSecond Review

Pros: Thanks to those who rma'd these, I've now built 4 of 'em for next to nothing. :)
To clarify others posts on the integrated graphics; the ATI "Radeon™ Xpress 200" (Northbridge) has an integrated "ATI Radeon™ X300 based VPU" (basically a 9600 with two pixel pipelines).

Cons: It's an OEM board, rummored to have been built for HP (not a con, unless you don't know what you're getting into). Also used in the Vintage-AH1 barebones (see below).

Other Thoughts: My first review mentioned the only difference between this board and that in the barebones Vintage-AH1 is the missing VIA 1394 controller. I later realized that this board also lacks the Marvell 88E8053 (in it's place--actually half-an-inch away from the disturbingly empty Marvell slot--is a Realtek RTL8201CL (10/100). I also noticed a small DPAK MOSFET near the CLRTC jumpers is missing on this board, but I have no idea what those are for...and the Chassis intrusion connector is missing on the barebones, but present here. Interestingly, underneath the sticker on both boards is stamped A8R-MX/DT (rev. 1.3).

3 out of 5 eggsDid I forget 1970something?

Pros: Cheap board, simple, seems stable, good integrated graphics, PCI express video when your ready-came with combo when I got it.

Cons: You need to know what you are doing and can't tweak this OEM board. As other reviewers mentioned, the documentation is not helpful. You have to have a floppy drive and know enough to create a floppy from the included driver disk to install SATA drives-likely using a different PC. Then you must have a floppy drive to this board to install as an SCSI device at prompt on XP install. ASUS does not support this OEM board, and you may have to fish perhaps even unsuccessfully for updated drivers, etc.

Other Thoughts: This board may be for some- those that have time, patience, and a very tight budget. It is not what I would expect from a manufacturer that I have gained respect for, but I will grind my teeth remembering that OEM is likely meant for a large OEM builder that has everything required to make this a great board. I for one, will avoid OEM boards from now on regardless of brand. I would not buy this board or recommend it to a hobbyist, but a pro builder with time could get a lot out of this board so I can't recommend against it either.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked Great

Pros: Worked perfect when installed! Couldn't ask for more. AND NEWEGG was the only place I could find this particular board

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: not a big ASUS fan anymore, but, this was for my wife's computer, for some reason the bios chip went bad, and just wanted to get her back up and running. NEWEGG saved the day!! Probably last ASUS board for me

2 out of 5 eggsAnother Poor Asus Job. Thanks JAMO!

Pros: The price was not high

Cons: The price was still too high for the headaches it gave me. I have put together dozens of computers, but this one was the worst of any working Motherboards I have ever bought. I know ASUS quality is going down hill, but with this board they have hit an all time low (They make ECS look good). What will people ever do when the newegg reviews are gone. I hope someone collects all the hints and tips and puts them in a web page.

Other Thoughts: Thanks to Jamo for the W2K video driver tip(below). I would have NEVER been able to install the video drivers without it. This would have been a Linux only board for me. As it was I wasted a couple of hours before I found your advice. Bad ASUS!

No matter how low the price is on this board... DON'T BUY IT. The frustration you WILL have in the future (especially if you move hardware around like I do) cannot be worth the savings. Again, there is NO support from ASUS.

5 out of 5 eggssome helpful info

Pros: great asus quality for money cannot beat. but beware it's oem and that means it was never built or packaged for retail sale. best avoid if you do not have very high to pro skill i do this for a living and even i had a few bumps with it. but still for money great

Cons: at price none some complaints listed here but i see most all as lack of real knoledge. be honest folks just because you put a few computers together your not a pro. just like changing your cars oil and plugs or fix brakes do not make you a pro engine builder. no over clock at all but be real your not going to build a high hp machine with this board as a starting point. for that go with a8n 32 sli asus

Other Thoughts: ok, lan is listed as a marvell it's not! it's uli nvidia as is sata both easy down load from nvidia. bam now your lan works. same with sound realtek drivers. asus is under legacy support. xp will load all video support but if you feel you must ati radeon 300 download not 200 as listed and not driver for mainboard. all is then good may get a intrusion warning on first start just reset bios and f10 remember to dual 2 sticks of memory in same color slots for dc and disable cool and quiet. fan may still seem to spin slow but will keep cool enough

5 out of 5 eggsAnother Great ASUS Product

Pros: Solid reliability is ubiquitous in ASUS motherboards. Unless someone specifically asks for another board, this is the only brand I use in the systems I build.

Cons: Not much. If I recall correctly, this board didn't have a connector for system power light, but that's so minor as to hardly be worth mentioning.

Other Thoughts: It's almost impossible to go wrong with an ASUS motherboard.
