2 out of 5 eggsrebate problems

Pros: great motherboard for the price. newegg has exellent fast delivery times.

Cons: BIOSTAR will not honor my rebate even after geting a e-mail from them saying they owe me one.

Other Thoughts: because of the rebate issues and there extremly poor customer relations I will no longer buy anything made by BIOSTAR!

5 out of 5 eggsDarn Fast & Reliable

Pros: Worked perfectly with Windows 98se & OpenSuSE Linux. Running Duron at 1.8G, gives 1,000+B/sec access on Memtest 1.6, which is over twice the speed of another board I've used.

Cons: nVidia chip can get toasty if left in totally open space, but no problem in typical case scenerio with even the slightest air movement.

Other Thoughts: So happy with it, I've bought two more. The 100MHz clockdown feature was a lifesaver when the parameters were mis-set.

5 out of 5 eggsno problems

Pros: A good inexpensive all-in-one board. It provides everything neccessary for basic computer use, you don't need any additional plug-in boards. Small form factor so its easy to fit into a case. The video worked fine, you can upgrade it with a better adapter if you want.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: If you have a spare socket-A CPU or two sitting around this is a good way to put it to use for a friend or family member.

3 out of 5 eggsFirst board bad video

Pros: Seems like it might be a nice board if I can get a good one. I have not had many aftermarket sys board bad out of the box. If it were an IBM I could understand

Cons: Defective video chipset.

Other Thoughts: Not many 462 Socket A microATX boards on the market as the processor is no longer made.

5 out of 5 eggsDecent socket A mobo

Pros: I needed a socket A mATX board for a spare Athlon XP 3000+ sitting around to put together a linux fileserver. Slackware 11.0 installed without a problem. Recompiled the kernel with nForce drivers and it works like a champ.

Cons: None. It's not fancy, but it gets the job done.

Other Thoughts: There aren't too many mATX socket A boards around anymore. I picked this one because I prefered a nForce2 chipset over the via or sis.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Inexpensive MoBo

Pros: These Boards has been very stable. We are running both WinXP and LINUX (Fedora Core 4 & 5, Centos). Have built 11 systems with this board since Jan 2006 . Built in Video is nice for low end usage, especially at this price.

Cons: NO I/O shield

Other Thoughts: Have used these systems for a School computer lab. This Technology is old, it works, but not recommended for someone who wants a system at home and might need to upgrade.

5 out of 5 eggsNice mATX Board

Pros: a descent little board, it's stable and does what it's supposed to do. Has oc options.

Cons: no southbridge heatsink, it gets kinda hot. Doesn't come with an I/O Shield.
But these are minor cons since SB sinks are easy to come by and the board fits into your case's factory back plate.

Other Thoughts: If you have an XP-M or an unlocked XP, you Will need to flash to an earlier bios to change the multis.
Bios' can be found on the .tw site and the flash utility on the .com site.
Don't expect a high FSB (over 185 or so) using onboard gfx.

5 out of 5 eggsDecent Mobo

Pros: Runs just fine after 2 years of my girl-friend using it. Had 3 different cpus in it and no problems overclocking any of them. Bios updated without a hassle. Onboard video works, but its ONBOARD, no high frps from this.

Cons: Not a single complaint. I've had good luck with Biostar.

Other Thoughts: Biostar isn't super user friendly, be prepared for scratching your head once in a while.

3 out of 5 eggsPoor motherboard

Pros: Runs good at stock, nice looking heatsink, good range of options in bios, nForce2, 3 memory slots

Cons: Very poor overclocker
does not support ddr400 only ddr333
memory can only go up to 183mhz or ddr366
cpu cannot pass 219mhz
had one and after one months i had to rma it because it would not boot

Other Thoughts: If you are not an overclocker and running a cpu with 333 fzb this is a good motherboard.
if you are an overclocker, this is not the board to go. for overclocker the nForce2 ultra chipset is recomended
