Pros: works for the short term
Cons: major on-board component failure
Other Thoughts: My first TA75M+ ran fine for a solid 1 year or so without any issues before I accidentally shorted the board it by not seeing a loose screw left in the case.
I ordered another TA75M+ after having a good record with the first board and there's where the trouble started. Maybe 3 months into having the board, it started randomly shutting down and USB ports only worked intermittenly. I checked all drivers, etc and found no problems. I returned the board for RMA and it was decided the board needed to be replaced. I received the replacement board (3rd TAM75+) and the onboard audio ports didn't work so I added a soundcard. However, it's only been 2 months and again major problems. Random shutdowns and USB problems. It finally started smoking near the USB ports.
I'm sorely disappointed with Biostar's quality. Very poor experience.
Pros: worked on arrival. the price is low.
Cons: it's very crunchy while reading and it's loud! it sounds like it's on its last legs. it sounds like popcorn popping in my case. i'm not going to trust this refurb to hold up. i'm switching it out asap.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works fine.
Cons: The fan is horribly loud. I can't recommended this card beyond the fact is works fine. The nose level would be fine for a very noisy area where the noise could be drowned out (i.e. warehouse, construction). For a home/business office, the level is unacceptable. :(READ FULL REVIEW
