Pros: Intel NIC, Intel SATA RAID with SATA III. eSATA ports are available to the RAID BIOS. Easy BIOS upgrade. UEFI support. Plenty of USB ports, with USB 3.0 ports. Board seems reliable and gave me no trouble at all.
Cons: If you have a large video card (I have a GTX 560 Ti), you might not be able to remove or add RAM without taking out the card.
The red eSATA port (which functions as a regular internal SATA port) may also be partially blocked by the video card cooling box. A right angle SATA cable should deal with this problem.
There are only two fan headers for case fans, so you'll need to use PSU adapters for any additional fans.
Other Thoughts: I didn't care much about the fact this was a Micro ATX board, just the feature set. I have no expansion cards other than the video card. I might consider adding an audio card later, and there's plenty of room for that. I can't fault them for the cramped space around the x16 slot on a board this small.
The board's build quality is excellent and all the cons were trivial to work around with spare hardware I have lying around. I mention them only for others' benefit in planning if they decide to go with this board.
