Extremely unreliable

Pros: It's cheap

Cons: Windows will not boot every 2/3 tries. It either freezes on the spinning logo, or does not recognize any partitions on the drive. Sometimes it just won't show anything, not even BIOS. The latter happens even if I take out all the drives, cards, and leave only one stick of known-to-work Crucial RAM. I specifically ordered that stick of RAM from a well known reputable company after Gigabyte support blamed my RAM. Still happens.

Just a regular mobo

Pros: - serves it purpose as the skeleton to my build
- I think the external usb ports on the back are always on, my keyboard doesn't turn off when i shut down my computer (didn't know this existed, my first build)

Cons: - not rgb, is that even a con? who cares about rgb
- not doa and didn't fry everything attached to it
- wish it had type c connector, not a future proof mobo (recently upgraded to the pixel 2 xl)

Overall Review: My first board, so if it works, then im glad. Gigabyte is apparently good for mobos? A friend told me that, so I just chose the cheapest one with enough internal fan headers for my case.

Great Mobo

Pros: The board has fan control (with quiet and fast speeds) and it functions normally.

Mobo also has LED indicators to identify problems (i.e. Video problem, booting probs etc.) along with a cool little yellow- orange built-in light line on Mobo (just look it up)

Somewhat cheaper

Crossfire built in

Cons: None really, I guess I would prefer SLI with crossfire but it's ok.

Overall Review: Nothing really

Setup is awful. Thanks for the one tiny page on the layout of Motherboard

Pros: Looks cool.

Cons: They put the SATA inputs on the side of the motherboard and stacked them on top of each other. Tons of room on the motherboard to put them elsewhere, maybe pointing UP. If you are a midget, your fingers may be able to plug the SATA in. It is like they didn't want you to be able to see what you are plugging in to the SATA.
SATA express is on the side as well. Awful potion for a mounting screw that I cannot mount due to there not being a hole in the case, even though the case is designed for it.

Overall Review: Still trying to get it so it does not reboot after 2 seconds.

Pins looked bent

Pros: Haven't gotten a chance to even use it

Cons: After I opened it, I always check my motherboard to see if everything looks aright with it. Some of the socket pins looked bent from afar but I didn't think anything of it since I've never had a problem with products from newegg so I decided to try it out.

Turns out the motherboard isn't even detecting the cpu. (I5 7700). The cpu light and dram light just flashes and resets the computer after a few seconds.

Just ordered a h110m board from MSI because I know they usually work. I've heard great things about this board but I was skeptical on actully buying GIGABYTE products.

Not sure if newegg will let me replace that one or not but here's hoping.

Overall Review: Check your motherboards after receiving them. That goes for all your computer parts.

Great board, easy setup...

Pros: Works well and runs stable right out of the box. Running G.Skill 2400 successfully at its XMP profile ( Item#: N82E16820232174). Great layout. The cables just seemed to fall into place. My i7-7700 doesn't miss the Z270 boards at all, and is very happy on a B250 chipset. Great deal @ $75 when I purchased!

Cons: Wow, I'm not sure I have any! This board impressed me!

Overall Review: Very stable, looks great, awesome price! Thanks Newegg!
