Summary: We have at least eight of the P4G800-E between my office and my home, and have not seen any USB issues except for one NT machine with bad plug and play (a SW issue). This has become our Std ASUS board for servers and for heavy developer use and I love it.
Summary: I always find some issue w/ every m/b I own. This one had a problem w/ the Intel SATA. I have a Maxtor 300GB SATA drive and when connected to the onboard Intel SATA controller in IDE (non-RAID) mode would kick up connection errors (replace cable) in WinXP during heavy loads (eg.
Summary: Buyer beware! This motherboard has a chronic and notorious problem with USB ports dying off. We bought one and all the ports went dead one day when plugging in a new USB device. The regular user wanted it replaced, which we did.
Summary: I spent a couple of weeks building a computer based on this board. When it came time to use it, all USBs on the board blew the first time I plugged in my MP3 player. It's clear from the web that many other people have had the same experience. I'm livid.
Summary: Same problem as others noted with Intel SATA on RAID mirror. Had to pay Best-Buy to debug it for me, and they just said that the Intel SATA was no good and to use the promise controller. After that it worked OK for a long time. I still had to replace a cable once.
A good motherboard but be wary of a potential reliability problem

Excerpt: This motherboard served me well during its time in use but unfortunately this period was only a year and a half! The board was taken back under warranty and a replacement given of a different model due to this being discontinued.
Excerpt: В наше время эта плохая материнская плата.В 2000 году да, она бы была получше.Формат AGP ничем не радует.Кроме Intel Pentium ничего не поставить.А DDR катриджи в наше время - редкость.Но в моем случае она прослужила 10 ЛЕТ!
Pros: Низкое энергопотребление.
; Мало греется.
; 4 Слота DDR.
; Очень долгий срок работы.
Cons: AGP-разьем для видеокарты.
; Проблемы с сетью.
; Неудобная эксплуатация.
