ASRock Z77E-ITX LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Supports Wake on Lan
Good Fan control

Cons: Died after 8 months. First and last time I am buying Asrock.
My first choice was Asus then Gigabyte. But I needed specific features only this board has. Big mistake, it didn't last at all. Worse thing you spend so much time troubleshooting. It just not worth it.

Had some weird reboot/reset issues. Decided to flash a new BIOS version. The board died, I thought must be a bad flash.

Spent another $20 to get a new BIOS. First time it booted to the BIOS fine. Then it hang...then it died again. Now I know it's not the BIOS, but the actual motherboard.

This is after I have removed everything but kept the essentials trying to get the PC to post.

Time spent about 20 hours trying to fix this. Worse thing, I searched this and so many people have issue with Asrock.

Other Thoughts: As of 20 minutes ago I just bought a Gigabyte.

IOGEAR GBU521W6 Bluetooth 4.0 USB Micro Adapter Multi-Language Version
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap
Bluetooth 4.0

Cons: Broke after 31 days. Could not return to Newegg, had to get warranty from Iogear. They shipped me a new one.
During the wait had to get a new dongle because of keyboard.
Now I have 2 dongles.

GIGABYTE GA-Z77N-WIFI LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Small factor.
Has a lot of features (USB3, 2 x NIC)
4 SATA etc

Cons: No Wake on LAN. The BIOS does not support it or the motherboard is broke.

First time I have ever seen a manufacturer screw this so bad. Not sure if Gigabyte will ever fix this. Other people reporting the same problem

Other Thoughts: Not sure if I am planning on keeping this.
