ECS BLACK SERIES GF8200A (V1.0) AM2+/AM3 NVIDIA GeForce 8200 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs ECS Won't Honor Their Warranty 06/17/2014

This review is from: ECS BLACK SERIES GF8200A (V1.0) AM2+/AM3 NVIDIA GeForce 8200 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: It worked for a while

Cons: Their products are total junk.

Other Thoughts: When your ECS product breaks--and it will--you're out of luck. They brag about their 99 hour service, but you'll never get it. You can't even get your product registered for RMA. ECS is one of the worst companies I have ever dealt with. You can rest assured I won't make the mistake of ever again buying a product from them.

ASUS A88X-PRO FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Well made with lots of features. Plenty of room around the CPU socket for larger coolers. Digital on-board diagnostic. Can flash the CMOS/BIOS without powering on the motherboard...WOW! I think this might allow you to re-flash a messed-up CMOS/BIOS.

Cons: The USB 3.0 configuration is a bit odd. Two paired with two ESATA ports. The other two paired with the ethernet port. It's no big deal, but I would have expected all four ports together. (Look closely at the photo and where the four blue USB ports are located.)

Other Thoughts: Even detects power fluctuations... While I was powering on as a visual test, I then unplugged it. The next time booting was a message about power fluctuations during the prior boot process.

I wish I hadn't scrimped on my last board, and paid the extra to get a good ASUS board like this one. I'd have saved money and frustration in the long run.

3 out of 5 eggs Great for HTPC, but crummy CMOS/BIOS 09/18/2013

This review is from: ECS A75F2-A2(1.0) FM2 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Low price, lots of features for HTPC.
Works with embedded graphics processor.
3 PCI slots.
4 PCI-E slots.
Compact design.
Can accommodate additional USB3 and S/PDIF.

Cons: The CMOS/BIOS in this thing is a joke. It works, if you can work around the "spiffy" graphics which needs a serous overhaul.
Does not include optional S/PDIF connector. (They're about $15-20)
Problems using onboard USB3 with Win7. Maybe it's Win7; maybe it's the board; maybe it's both. I just know it's problematic. My USB3 PCI card works perfect with it.
Everyone seems to know ECS customer support is very poor. I totally agree.

Other Thoughts: Great for HTPC. I use the cheap A4-4000 ($45) APU with embedded graphics, and get great HD results using Win7 and SageTV v6. The six SATA ports offer lots of room for hard drives. Three PCI ports give room for old tuner cards. I recommend the (PCI-E) Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250 Dual TV Tuner, with two digital and two analog tuners. (any two can be used simultaneously)
You can buy "SPDIF RCA Out Plate Cable Bracket" for under $20 to add digital RCA and optical outputs.
