Pros: I have had solid results with Gigabyte boards in the past. They have been my go to brand for the last several years based on price versus features and quality.
Cons: This build was for my daughter's use.... Had very light use, but after 4 months, won't power on--no lights, no status. This board was never stressed, never had a PCI card, no video card, no hard drive, just a bare bones SSD and memory. Very frustrating.
Overall Review: This should represent a low probability failure mode based on use and cycles, yet several other reviews show this. the ULTRA DURABLE (TM) Motherboard they advertise on all sides of the box, IS NOT.
Pros: Works great. Plug and play. No problems with CF cards as stated. My 4 gig cards are fully recognized. No problems with "extra drives" showing up on my computer as well
Cons: Should have got it as a shell shocker.
Overall Review: I am purchasing another one at this price--It is a great deal.
