Surprisingly nice.

Pros: -It works!
-Accommodable features.

Cons: -Not the fanciest design, cheap looking.
-Not a fan of the layout really. Unfortunately only MITX FM2+ board that had the socket positioned correctly for my build.

Overall Review: I was somewhat unhappy about having to purchase ASrock as I had always assumed them to be a cheap manufacturer. Though the looks are cheap, the performance and quality seem to be fine. Great for budget building!

Another Failed Board

Pros: Price

Cons: Like many other reviews, the board would not POST after a short period of time. Initially, this was infrequent, however, less than 6 months since purchase, the board will not POST at all. I guess I should have paid a few extra dollars for a brand I know and trust. First, and probably last, ASRock board.

Dear Valued ASRock Customer

Sorry to hear that the mainboard has malfunctioned after around 6 months which’s due to nature of electronic product, it can happen.
Please trouble shoot the mainboard whether the issue is resolved.
• Unplug the ATX power, clear the CMOS.
• Test with single memory module.
• Test with onboard video (CPU with integrate video or test with VGA card).
• Connect the monitor to onboard video (required removing discrete VGA card).
• Turn on the power (using onboard power button) to check if its post.

Easy setup, good features, and looks.

Pros: - Built in wifi + good features
- Best socket FM2+ Mini-ITX motherboard imo
- Like the location of the ram slots

Cons: - I ended up breaking the fan circuit on a brand new 750 Ti video card because of the location of the external audio connector. Luckily I was able to solder the chip back onto the video card, but I cannot use the front external audio connector while I have a video card plugged in. -1 egg for that.
- there are cheaper options

Overall Review: It's a great mini-ITX motherboard and great if you are making a media center or entry level gaming machine.

Lasted a couple months past warranty, then died in the middle of streaming video.

Pros: Right Features. Right Price. Right Size.

Cons: Like so many other customer reviews, mine eventually gave me the blank screen of death. I went through all the checks and swaps and nothing made any difference. AMD verified my A-10 CPU/APU was not at fault. I will add it was giving me the occasional buggy video issue in the first year, but it just wasn't often enough, or lasted long enough, to make me think a total failure was eminent. Too optimistic on my end.

Overall Review: I gambled that I might a get a good one that didn't have the fault(s) of the others because I wanted the features in the mini-ITX format. First time in over 20 years I had a mobo die like this. First time I bought an ASRock mobo. Considering that many other customers have had the same problem, I will be less likely to buy ASRock products again.

Had lots of problems with this locking up and freezing.

Pros: Small board, inexpensive.

Cons: Would lockup/hang frequently. Very unreliable. Would not past POST many times, would lockup in Windows sessions, and would freeze when in BIOS (confirming it was not a windows issue).
Replaced with an ASUS board with all the same hardware otherwise, (only swapped motherboard) and ASUS is rock solid, indicating that the failures and lockups were this motherboard.

Overall Review: Would advise spending a few more dollars and buy a better product

Dear Valued ASRock Customer,

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
For the freeze issue, please check the CPU is not overheating.
Reseat the HSF and apply the thermal compound to try if it overheating.
Allow better air circulation inside the chassis.
Load the BIOS setting default.

So unimpressed

Pros: Clear layout, straightforward design, good ideas for software

Cons: Wonky performance, spend s LOT of time chasing gremlins, to much tweaking (through included software) will break everything, eventual BSOF (Black Screen Of Death).

Overall Review: This board has never worked correctly. The CPU fan control would send RPM's crazy high regardless of actual settings, OC-ing through included utility crashes the system, updates seem to fix one problem only to open at least one more, finally after (almost to the month) 2 years of light HTPC duty there is no video output. Fans spin, discs whir...no video. For all the good reviews you'll see a few commonalities running through the threads, and I will not be purchasing another ASRock product as a replacement.

High quality and feature packed FM2 + motherboard

Pros: -6 x SATA 3 ports
-mSATA port (not shared with SATA ports)
-great audio

Cons: -Instructions could be clearer in regard to mSATA port (only 1 configured from factory with wifi card, support will need to be moved back and wifi card removed to connect full size mSATA)
-wifi antenna setup is fiddly (but not required in my case which I discovered later as I wanted to use the mSATA port for HDD)
- Could not get Wake On Lan to work

Overall Review: I'm running 6 x 2 TB SATA drives in RAID 5 booting from an mSATA drive running Ubuntu. It is fantastic and the picture and sound quality is amazing (paired with A8-7600 configured for 45w TDP and 2 x 4gb at 2133 MHz)
I would recommend this product to others depending on whether AMD keep the socket type. If you would like to build a NAS/HTPC type device now, paired with a suitable case you cannot go wrong
