Very nice startup operating system, can boot from USB. 4/30/2016 2:25:45 PM

Pros: Can boot from USB thumb drives, has USB 3.0, can hold an i5 processor, and 6 SATA drives. I've been able to run both Ubuntu and Windows 7 64 bit from two separate drives, and am able to select from between them at startup.

Cons: The SATA drives are a little hard to configure sometimes, and having only 6 USB slots has left 1 or 2 devices out at one time, but barely a complaint.

Overall Review: I would probably buy this motherboard again for my next computer, unless there is a better one that can run an i7 or better processor.

Cheap, but this motherboard is a trap 1/1/2016 7:53:11 PM

Pros: - Exceptional Price
- Ease of Use
- Hardware itself is solid

Cons: - if you get this motherboard, you WILL NOT be able to install Windows 8 or 10 of any version
- because you cannot use the latest windows. you will be more vulnerable to a wider variety of malware
- i spent $300 on the i7 4790 as an upgrade from a g3528 and it didn't even run on this motherboard even though the manufacturer's site said its compatible.

Overall Review: - i recommend this motherboard if you plan on never upgrading to the latest gen cpu's or using the latest OS's

No responce 11/23/2015 11:20:06 AM

Pros: It did work.

Cons: I tried to load free windows 10 and could not. I spent over 6 hours with Microsoft and they could not load 10. I don't know if it was the motherboard or not but I unplugged everything else and it would not load. I found other people were having trouble with loading 10 with a Gigabyte board when I researched on the internet. What bothers me is I E-Mailed Gigabyte with the problem and got no response. I will not by another Gigabyte motherboard.

DOA 10/18/2015 9:43:50 PM

Pros: None

Cons: Motherboard will power on but not POST and no beeps. Swapped memory, video cards, etc. Nothing. I've just now learned lots of people were having issues with this board. Money down the drain.

It Works! 10/18/2015 9:11:32 PM

Pros: Cheap and works very well.

Cons: No HDMI output.

Overall Review: Hey, I got it on sale with the rebate for $29.00 so should I complain about anything??? Well, it has been sitting in my closet for over 10 months now and I decided to use it as a cheapo Linux build with the G3258 Processor and a 128GB Samsung 850 Pro SSD as well as 8gig of Ripjaws X Ram, all of which I got on sale over the year.

I just use it for some games, web browsing, youtube and such and what can I say........ with this combo, it is incredibly fast, just about boots to desktop instantly and is a joy all around. Linux Mint 7.2 64 bit installed without a hitch and was up and running in no time. For those of you using Linux for the first time, don't use the Gigabyte chipset CD at all to install as Linux will automatically install the right chipset, drivers and everything else.

Not Happy 10/17/2015 6:10:24 PM

Pros: Not sure, it won't boot.

Cons: I bought the motherboard with the Intel G3258 and it will not boot. Nothing comes up on the monitor and I've tried the onboard video and a separate vga card.

working now 8/19/2015 4:58:50 PM

Pros: Good price, dvi and analog.

Cons: First one burnt out after 5 minutes during OS install. Would not post again after that. Got an RMA and the newer one seems to be doing ok so far.
