This review is from: ASUS H81I-PLUS LGA 1150 Intel H81 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Cheap. Name brand.
Cons: Doesn't even work. I got 2 boards in 2 days.. both completely DOA. Both boards got power, wouldn't post. No beeps with speaker plugged in.
Other Thoughts: I bought this board for a HTPC build I was doing with an Intel I5-4590S.
I thought I was crazy for a minute. I got one board home, and tested it for about an hour trying to figure out why it wouldn't POST. Finally I gave up and RMA'd it.
Then while I was waiting for the RMA I ordered another one. Brought it home.. same thing. Naturally I assumed I was making some bonehead mistake somewhere.. but I triple checked everything and all was well. So I RMA'd that one too.
Finally I went and swapped to an ASRock H87M-ITX. Got it home, plugged it in, everything was golden. Id recommend going with either the ASRock that I got, or spring for the ASUS H87 board. I currently have that in my FreeNAS box and that has been working very well.
To be completely fair to ASUS, their customer support was pretty good. I talked to someone on their site, went through all of the steps I took, checked the part numbers against the compatibility sheet, found no issues.
The quality on this board is awful though. ASUS offers much better products than this usually.
Pros: Cheap, Cord is long, 10ft. Works great. Used it as an extension for peripherals (Keyboard, Controllers for emulators, etc.).
Cons: None, It is exactly what you want.READ FULL REVIEW
