Pros: Onboard firewire is great. Onboard sound card is great. On board graphics are nice and not really needing to upgrade until I do dual monitors for music production. This motherboard is a good starter board especially for music production and anything else. The firewire chipset is VIA. The board provides plenty of expansionspace.
Cons: One of the firewire ports on this unit does not work. But the other does and is really good at least for now.
Pros: Very portable, nice price tag. Has a nice firm build and doesn't feel like a toy. Transfers very quickly. Doesn't over heat. Can barely hear it run really and I've dropped it a couple times from very short distances.
Cons: The USB cable is a joke. I think my foot is just longer than the cord.
Overall Review: Longer USB cable would have been great.
