Summary: The vga port floats above the motherboard and is unstable. It feels as though it will break. I have to reinforce the vga always with washers. Everything else okay. Doesn't play well with video drivers.
Summary: I bought this to replace a motherboard that was damaged by lightning. Installation was, of course, a breeze. The board is in my HTPC build, so I was happy that the HDMI carried the audio without any issues. The video drivers made it easy to scale the picture to fit on the HDTV perfectly. Other than that, everything popped in without problems and the board works fine, which I would expect. My only star deduction was for a lack of USB 3.0 headers on the board.
Summary: Excellent layout. Purchased for home theater "Media Center" box (XBMC). Sufficient number of SATA 3 ports for my application(4). Backplane includes USB 3 / eSATA 3/ Gigabit Ethernet & HDMI. Supports a wide variety of CPUs. Above average BIOS / support software. My Build: AMD A4 3400 (2.7 GHz dual core APU).
Summary: This is the mobo for my NAS. I couldnt be more thrilled to have chosen this because it has performed flawlessly. I am using this mobo inside the Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced - Mini-ITX Computer Case along with the AMD A6-3500 APU. I love my NAS and it is a busy NAS too. This board has more than met my needs. Highly recommend.
Summary: This motherboard seems to work just fine with the exception of the USB 3.0 ports only seem to support my HD's not my USB flash drives. My flash drives work on other USB 3.0 boards but not this one. In fact they about about 1/3 the speed on USB 3.0 as they are on the USB 2.0 ports. Go figure... Overall it's a pretty good board and some day I may find out why I have the problems on USB 3.0 with the flash drives.
