5 out of 5 eggs This is a short follow up to my review over a year ago (11-1-13) 01/15/2015

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-F2A88XM-D3H FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Still a great motherboard. I have really punished this board and it has taken everything in stride. In the past year only 2 BSOD ( a windows issue not the motherboard). No issues with peripherals or any reconfirmations. This is definitely my go to motherboard for all but serious gaming.......and I mean serious not the weekend warrior kind.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Added BD drive, more storage drives, Dual monitors This thing is now officially a beast.

Pros: Just installed the first set I bought a few weeks ago. Boy what a difference. I've always had problems with our WiFi in our house. I have tried modifying antennas, moving routers, and have never had complete success. These things work great! No more lost signals or “buffering” during Netflix. You don’t need a computer or any operating system to use these, they just plug in and work. I just ordered a second pair today for the downstairs.

Cons: The only con (and it cost them one egg) is they cover enough of the other plug connection in the duplex outlet to render it almost useless. you can't use anything with a grounded plug.

Other Thoughts: To bad the engineers that designed this didn't have a USA duplex outlet in front of them when they did the design..

Pros: Bought this for my new build and it works perfectly. Low power, 4 cores. Four times faster graphics than my old computer. Still not for hard core gaming but will handle everything I throw at it. Stock fan is surprisingly quiet. Runs cool 41° C max so far. Haven't stressed it yet

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Everything worked together right out of the box.So far its a great system.

CPU ..... A8-5500
Optical .. Lite-on DVD Burner iHAS222-06
MEM .......G.Skil 8GB DDR3 1866
Boot ..... Samaung 840 EVO 120GB SSD
Storage .HGST 1TB Hard Drive

I felt with this setup I will have room to upgrade over the years.
