1 out of 5 eggs Total garbage 04/27/2016

This review is from: Rosewill RHB-343 USB 3.0 4-Port Hub with Individual Power Control

Pros: It was free with rebate so hard to complain much. Looks pretty

Cons: Doesn't work well at all. Will not even run USB 2.0 devices properly. Simple wireless mouse would not function properly plugged into this. Jump drives wouldn't register at all in Windows. Junk!

Other Thoughts: Even free it isn't worth the time and trouble. Avoid this item

5 out of 5 eggs Best Z170 Board for the money. Read here if installing Windows 7 02/25/2016

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-Z170XP-SLI (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Lots of features for a sub $150 MB. Good looks. Much improved bios from Gigabytes Z97 boards. PS2 port (a must for Windows 7 installation). Great sound. 3 monitor support with HDMI. Great PCIX and PCI layout.

Cons: Cheap/generic IO shield. Memory slots only having 1 clamp. Windows 7 install issues (as with any Z170 board). Only 6 sata ports. Needs 2 more USB 3 ports on back instead of having 4 available for front. I always hated the thick USB 3 front panel cables as they tie things up in the case.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you have a PS2 mouse and optical drive if you plan to install Windows 7! With no USB 2 or 3 support, using a USB mouse only functions with the bios and the very start of Windows installation. During the install process, the mouse becomes erratic then disappears. A PS2 mouse works fine however and I did not notice any problems with the USB keyboard at all during the install process. After Windows is installed, use the disk to install drivers and all is well again with USB 2 and 3.

Not sure why so many here had a problem with the PCB not being full ATX length. Who cares? You still get full ATX features and you save room in your case. With sata ports pointing back, this could be a godsend in a cramped case.Just be careful plugging in the power supply connectors and memory.....no big deal.
