This review is from: ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 AM3 AMD 880G 5 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: prob best board available at any price at the time, still a value at its price point. Practically server class,
with its onboard video, and ECC RAM support, and
TONS of SATA-3 (6GB) ports, even a 6GB ESATA port. heck even (2) USB-3 ports, this MB was ahead of its time and can run anything you want from a powerful versatile workstation to a monster gaming rig or to RAID / server duty.
Easily turned many cheap dual core CPU's into quad cores. OC's RAM to 2K, runs tons of different RAM with ease. Looks good doing it !
Cons: that so many crazy people can find so much to complain about with this great product -
Wish I can get this same feature set and port density on matx sized board
Other Thoughts: at the time I spent around 120 bux for it and its a great price for the versatility, stability and performance it provides.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: nice looking, good CPU power, Supports 16GB RAM, good size, on paper its a great machine & deal
Cons: quirks galore-
out if the box has performance issues with wifi
cant believe no 5Ghz Radio for wifi (No 5ghz N or A) on a modern $600+ laptop - when my $300 dell ultra portable cheapo beater laptop has it
After re-imaging to no UEFI bios standard MBR windows 7 at least now i can leverage my WHS2011 for backups and bare metal restores. But it didnt solve wifi dropping or
not reconnecting issues or laptop ignoring me when i use keyboard functions yo adjust brightness, or general network issues when on wifi like not seeing all my LAN devices/servers under "network"
should have had intel wifi radio - I think most issues are due to cheapo hardware like atheros wifi radio and other cheapo parts
my slightly older U36 is much more stable and made better with no quirks at all 3+ years. it also has a 2 year warranty and was $150 more with only 13.3" LCD and a 1st gen core i3 - no accident i guess, asus knows the quality of this one is shoddy and the low price & warranty (1 yr) reflects it
Other Thoughts: change settings for power saving to not go to low power and not shut off wifi when idle and it solves most of its wifi issues.READ FULL REVIEW
