Summary: Rear usb ports work fine with all the Microsoft keyboards and mice I tested on it. Strange...
Pros: This board has some decent features for the price, It's ok for a budget pc or gaming.
Cons: Doesn't like my Logitech g19 or g9x mouse. Computer won't post all the time if I use the usb ports in the back. What corrected the issue is, plugging the keyboard alone in one of the rear usb ports, and then using the usb ports on the keyboard to plug in the mouse and camera.
Summary: Biostar is underrated in my opinion. I've experienced very good reliability, virtually no incompatibilities and very easy setup with pretty much every AMD and Intel board from Biostar.
Pros: I purchased 20 of these bad boys when Newegg had a free 8GB memory stick paired with them. I've used all 20 with no DOA's and no failures to date.
Cons: Not a super high end board by any means. But great for any standard desktop PC or even a mid-range gaming system with addition of a dedicated graphics card. Support for most of the FX series CPU's is nice too.
Summary: I have had this MB for 4 months now and I am very pleased with the purchase. The MB performs as expected and was a very easy install. Just remove the old MB install the new MB power it up install the software and that was it all done. I highly recommend this as a replacement board as it is a good deal for the money the performance was better than expected.
Summary: This gets 3/5 for price, but it's not even among the better budget boards I've used. It works fine, the system I built on it with an AMD Phenom II X4 965 is stable as it supports up to 125w CPU's. The layout of connectors is absolutely terrible, though. Even a mid-sized graphics card has it so you'll be pushing wired connections down or even having to avoid using a SATA port on the board. Still, it's stable and cheap which are a big deal for budget-minded builds.
Summary: The motherboard died after 3 months of use. It stopped working completely. I called customer service because I'm still under warranty. They told me they will be happy to look at the product and see what happened BUT I have to PAY for the shipping cost. If it's broken because of some reason not covered under warranty then I have to PAY EXTRA for them to repair. My lesson is to pay a little more for trusted brand than this untrusted, un-responsible company.
