Pros: I am reviewing an Asus Intel based Motherboard. Asus also makes a whole lot of stuff including but not limited to premade pc’s router, motherboards, laptops, graphics cards, monitors. In fact I own an Asus RT-AC66U awesome router WITH firmware updates. Anyhow this motherboard is in the aftermarket pc building category or DIY type genre of products and is an entry level motherboard hence some of the cons but again its entry level so they almost have to be expected although it could be a really good board if it added features and kept the price.
The features it provides including but not limited the onboard HDMI, DVI, *VGA (*PS/2) PCI 3.0 slot 4 dim slots, 19 pin USB 3.0 header expansion slot. All these features are great to have especially the video output because the CPUs supported by the chipset on the board have intel HD graphics so if you choose to go with that instead of pumping money into a dedicated graphics card, you save more money.
Yes people should in-fact look to purchase this item if they are in the market of pc building on a budget, or just feel like pumping money into a different part of the pc build because this board does all they need and will be wasting money on features they won’t use had they stepped up in the product line of motherboards and that’s where this boards fits a good sweet spot.
Cons: The ps/2 connection is nice but who still uses that really now? 2013 model with ps/2 connection really you can use USB slots for that instead and be more versatile, the same goes with VGA. I do realize VGA a is still prevalent but mainstream dictates HDMI which it already has and the dvi slot understand for extra high definition support. Those two features could be replaced with more functional ports. The last tidbit I have about this item is like the previous owner sated it turn back on from time to time after I turn it off idk weird.
Other Thoughts: i own other asus products and i cant complain to much asus support is pretty stale its alwasys some scripted stuff and they just point at general resources and dumb stuff its never detaile, and time is always iffy i get it they have so many priducts so many places but hey it come witht eh territory of selling stuff support it,READ FULL REVIEW
