Pros: - Great audio
- Plenty of USB 2.0 & 3.0 ports
- the 3 eSATA ports
- Gigabyte's extra utilities (@BIOS)
- Both Crossfire and SLI capable.
Cons: - No built in display ports
- 12 volt connection is placed strangely
Other Thoughts: Overall I really like this motherboard and suites my upgrade build quite nicely. I only have two gripes/warnings for people. The 12 volt connector is placed in the top left corner of the board making cable management almost impossible to hide that connector behind the board and I was forced to place it in the front. Also be warned if your using this for a new build there are no built in display ports on this so you need a GPU to run a display (considering this was an upgrade job for me this wasn't an issue).
This board boasts a total of 8 USB 2.0 ports and 2 3.0 ports with an onboard 3.0 connection for your tower. For someone who does video production and has at least 4-5 ports occupied on a normal basis it helps to know that I won't run out anytime soon. The addition of the 3 eSATA ports on the back gives me a quick and easy migration solution in case I need to move data from one machines drive to another machines drive. Gigabyte has a few extra utilities for this board that are really useful mostly the @BIOS utility. This guy will allow you to update your BIOS from your OS desktop. This gives less technology inclined users the ability to perform updates to everything easier and not having to call or ask someone else.
Overall the board is one of the best on the market and for someone who loves Gigabyte boards its a hit out of the park.
Cons: DOA Twice
Other Thoughts: I recieved two of these and both were DOA. Would not recommend. Do not purchase this item needs to be looked at.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Portability, very sturdy design, the retractable cable
Cons: Cord can get a little twisty
Other Thoughts: Running it with a Macbook Pro and it runs like a charm. The only thing I see wrong with it is the minor point that the cord is stored in a circle so the cord needs to sit just right less it gets all twisty. But I you want a good, small, portable mouse it is great for the price.READ FULL REVIEW
