Great for a small, low-power desktop. 02/11/2014
Low power, cool running, dual Ethernet, takes desktop RAM.
Still no USB 3.0.
I also have an older version of this motherboard (the one with the Celeron 847). It's pretty much identical with the exception of the more recent CPU. All the same great things apply. Low power consumption, cool operation, enough grunt for a basic workstation, and it's reliable enough for 24x7 operation. The dual ethernet ports make this a great basis for a router. I run Mint Linux on this one, and it's driving a 24" 1920x1200 monitor without any problems. All the hardware was supported. The one fault is that Gigabyte still hasn't bothered to put USB 3.0 on this motherboard, despite upgrading the CPU twice now.
