GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 (rev. 6.0) AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Solid reliability.
Lots of connectivity
Seems to be faster and better than the board it replaced.

Cons: It isn't free.

Other Thoughts: For an older CPU, it is a very good performer. The AM3 and FX CPUs all work here and as a replacement board extends the existing components useful life. Though these are older parts the performance is certainly good enough for everyday desktop use and more than enough for a SOHO server.

Edit Sept 10, 2016
This board is still going strong. I use it for a NAS4free install and it Just Works. 4 SATA drives and an old Athlon II X2 255 that mostly runs at 800 MHz due to power tuning results in this box mostly sipping power. 24/7/365 uptime until recent power outage was in 3 digits of days IIRC 200+. No issues with hardware whatsoever. Booting this from USB instead of SATA seems normal with no outrageous delay or slowness. I am debating adding in 2 more drives.

Additionally I was a bit surprised to see it still available but no disappointed. BTW I get full speed gigabit data transfers locally with little delay.

Hanns-G HL203DPB Black 20
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Bright, clear consistent and decent deep black. The price I paid, on special, was $100 plus the usual raising the final price to $125. Price was very fair. Decently small bezel, low weight, very shallow depth.

Power brick should be replaceable.

Cons: IDK about mounting this on a wall mount as the video connectors require the plugs to be at a right angle, sticking straight out.

As always with separate power bricks could be difficult finding a place3 to put the darn thing.

Seagate Desktop HDD ST2000DM001 2TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Quiet
Not running too hot like others I have used
Fast enough for server

Cons: Nothing as of this date.

Other Thoughts: Hope that this series has better reliability that older ones, such as 7200.9.
