Most Favorable Review

Good budget option

Pros: - Worked out of the box with my Ryzen 5 2600, and my ddr4 2666 ram. - Nice assortment of ports (back io, sata, m.2) - Cheap relative to similar competition, at least when I bought it, though the price seems to have gone up a bit - Decent VRM for the price

Cons: - Ram slots are tricky. Only one tab. When I was building the system with this board, I had to troubleshoot for some time to determine that the ram was not fully inserted. - Some sata ports are directly under where my video card (RX 570) is located, so it is tricky to impractical to use them unless you have a smaller card.

Overall Review: In summary, has some difficulty when physically building the system but in everyday operation works great. Good value for your money, would recommend.

Solid, no issues in 9 months of use

Overall Review: Good product. 250GB is a bit small and SATA is a bit of a bottleneck for this drive, but if you know what you're getting it's a solid product that I've had no problems with.
