AMD Ryzen 5 2nd Gen with Radeon Graphics - RYZEN 5 3400G Picasso (Zen+) 4-Core 3.7 GHz (4.2 GHz Max Boost) Socket AM4 65W YD3400C5FHBOX Desktop Processor

Pros: Wow! It's been five years since my last build and this is one of the most noticeable upgrades I can remember. It's like when I moved up from a i386/640K to a Pentium/4MB memory.

Cons: None visible to me.

Overall Review: All I can say is: Great value; excellent performance.

Easy-peasy

Pros: I specifically noticed that this (not my first ITX mobo) was easy to work with. That's important to me. Meets all my expectation/needs. Good value.

Cons: None that I can see.

Overall Review: This is one of those things that just works. After adding my components and connecting the front panel I kept thinking I missed something because it seemed to easy. Everything was worked perfectly from first start. I'm very satisfied with performance right out ot the box -- no bios optimizations yet. I almost don't know what to say about components like this. It met my expectations out of the box; I feel the price is right; Didn't cause me any frustrations. Just buy it if you're looking for a B450 mini ITX mobo.

SSD is the future.

Pros: This was part of a new build so it is not always easy to distinguish contributions from individual components. I can easily see significant improvement moving files around -- I do Java software development so I often need to move substantial files/collections around.

Cons: Nothing apparent so far.

Overall Review: Excellent performance; great value.

Nifty little case

Pros: Well designed, well made.

Cons: This case actually proved to be too small for new AMD3400G (stack and fan) and Seasonic PSU.

Overall Review: I have no complaints about a case that just didn't work out for me. Not returning it because I found another use for it. Just be advised that it is small inside.

Displayport

Pros: This works exactly as expected. That is my highest accolade when it comes to technology.

Cons: None evident.

Overall Review: It just works. appears to be quality construction.
