Good for almost nothing

Igor L., Newegg
3 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought the board for HTPC use, but when connected to TV via HDMI HD stream just hangs. On smaller monitor I can play HD, but it's constantly buffering and "choppy". Even web surfing is slow. I regret buying this board, it's good for nothing.
  • Pros: Compact, low power consumption, comes with CPU already attached.
  • Cons: Slow, HD video virtually non existent even on 18" screen.

Was great while it lasted...

Andrew F., Newegg
23 July 2013
  • Summary: Well...it died after having it exactly 11 months and 21 days. I went with another GPU to replace it since the intel draws less power and had better reviews.
  • Pros: Pretty quick, perfect for a media pc setup I had, and lots of USB ports!
  • Cons: Board died after about a year of use. Fan was a bit loud while it worked and the board got a little hot regardless.

ok mobo

Tim P., Newegg
30 June 2013
  • Pros: Small and it posted and was not DOA
  • Cons: Would not boot off my usb dvd drive. Tried 2 different drives with no luck. I tried every config that the bios offered. Funny thing was that the usb had power after it was turned off. I was kinda sickened when the driver disk was a google ad for chrome. I will avoid ASROCK in the future.

Slow and Not-sturdy

Anthony C., Newegg
11 January 2013
  • Pros: Most peripherals are fully integrated
  • Cons: A bit too slow for a HTPC. When I went to re-purpose the board into a Linux box one of the SATA connectors broke off. I've built over 200 PC's in my day, never happened before.

Nice board, while it worked

Lawrence S., Newegg
27 December 2012
  • Summary: This board worked flawlessly for 14 months but failed soon after. As my first purchase of a ASRock product, I find it disappointing that the board failed in light home use and I am out the cost of the board.
  • Pros: This is a nice feature packed board at a good price.
  • Cons: This board was used as a 4 disk NAS with 2 disk mirrors. 14 months after purchase, (2 months after warranted end), SATA channels 1 and 4 started dropping. I tried new drives with the same behavior. Drives were not only missing in OS but also were absent in the BIOS utilities. I updated the BIOS a...

not fast enough processor

Calvin H., Newegg
20 December 2012
  • Summary: If you do get this, you're probably going to want to buy a low-profile video card. Make sure it's not longer than 7" and doesn't stick out from the card more than the width of the metal band.
  • Pros: Small, fairly queit, looks nice.
  • Cons: Can't handle Hulu, Netflix or any video of HD quality. The processor maxes out when rendering fullscreen HD. I finally broke down and bought a video card, hopefully that will fix my problems.

User Review

Charles S., Newegg
21 July 2012
  • Summary: Not enough horse power to record and play back at the same time. Even watching a movie in VLC or XBMC while WMC recorded resulted in poor play back and poor recording. Frequent stutters watch Netflix even when nothing else was being recorded.
  • Pros: Low Power consumption. small footprint.
  • Cons: About a month after installing the motherboard the LAN started to have intermittent troubles. Even though it was enabled Traffic would cease to move. Disabling and enabling worked but the problem grew more frequent. Since I use the board in a home theater PC as a DVR With Silicone Dust Cable card...

So far very quirky board

Blakelan S., Newegg
8 February 2012
  • Summary: I've had great luck with ASRock boards in the past... This board, however is making me question whether or not I'll continue with ASRock in the future. I thought I had recieved a DOA board. It would not POST. Fan would spin, HDDs would spin up, but no display, and no beep.
  • Pros: All in one solution. Four SATA ports. eSATA <35watts power consumption
  • Cons: Will not POST without PS2 device attached (with 1.40 UEFI) Will not resume from sleep in Windows 7

Nettes kleines Spielzeuge aber nicht brauchbar

DT, Amazon
18 October 2013
  • Summary: Ich habe mir das Board als Ersatz für das Zotac M880GITX-A-E, dass mir leider kaputt gegangen ist. Nach leichten Startschwierigkeiten, habe ich endlich Windows 7 64Bit zum laufen bekommen.
