Pretty happy with it
Pros: Mainly the price
Cons: The M2 slot is right under the pcie 16x slot. The header that goes over the ports has an insulation padding of some kinds I had to remove. Had to look up the front IO pins, a small sheet with the instructions would have been nice.
Overall Review: Bought it for my 8 year old as her first gaming machine to replace a lenovo yoga 700. Went into the case and installed quite easily. Running quite well on Windows 10 with a Ryzen 3 and RX580. Fortnite at max. Minecraft, etc. Using an Intel m2 ssd.
Pretty good board
Pros: Good price point Runs multiple GPU's for mining. I'm running two, one is on a riser expansion.
Cons: Placing of front audio and panel connections are not optimal. Disabled audio and SATA and booted from a USB stick to run a NHOS. Probably didn't need to disable both, but I did. Only way I found to free up the needed PCIe lanes. PCIe lanes are too limited for expansion slots that are available by default. User manual didn't have any information on limitations at install.
Overall Review: I would recommend.
Pros: Works as expected at a good price.
Cons: Seller emailed me to let me know I'd been upgraded to free 2 day shipping which was cool until it took longer than the other things I ordered at the same time and were shipped standard. They also asked to be rated five stars before I got the product. Kind of obnoxious.
Overall Review: I would recommend and purchase again. I just wouldn't expect to get it when they say.
Stopped working with Alexa
Pros: Edit: Been trying for weeks now and no Alexa integration. App, connection, Alexa integration, etc., all worked as they were supposed to.
Cons: Edit: No Alexa integration Has to be used in the top plug because of ho w it's shaped. Not that bad, but it leaves very little room below it as well. Could be offset a little more for an easier install. Alexa glitches sometimes, but that's not the plugs fault.
Overall Review: I used my secondary guest wifi network only in the 2.4ghz mode and WPA2 protected mode just for iOT stuff which this is connected to. Using the app and/or Alexa on a Pixel 2 XL.
