1 out of 5 eggs Good while they last; they don't last long 01/28/2016

This review is from: ASRock QC5000-ITX/PH AMD FT3 Kabini A4-5000 Quad-Core APU SOC Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo

Pros: small footprint, good layout, good price

Cons: They fail. Unfortunately, I own about 10 of these boards, in various -ITX and -WIFI models. They last somewhere between 3 weeks and 8 months, but I've lost 5 of them within the last month. They were purchased at different times, for installations at various locations, all running on battery backups. After the first few began failing at one installation, we suspected power conditions or other environmental problems. We replaced all other components in succession, including the cases, but no resolve. We would run burn-in tests without failure, but then they would still die with increasing regularity in production. We thought it was related to the video circuits, but even our headless, light-duty boxes are now failing after 8 months.

Other Thoughts: The screen goes black and not even a push and hold on the power button will shut it down. You have to remove all power, clear any residual, and power on again. It starts slowly, dieing once a week, then it gets to the point where they won't turn on at all. We've tried various brands of memory, power supplies, etc, but after the 5th unit died, we concluded it was this QC5000 board. It's a shame, as we've had good fortune with other ASRock mainboards.
