Summary: Great motherboard for the price. I used this motherboard to build a PC that was quite cheap to be honest. I put together this and a dual core processor and had my little brother playing league with my for a PC that is worth around 200$. I would suggest this to anyone that wants to build a PC but does not have a big budget. These will last you and are very easy to work with as well!
Summary: I got this board for a HTPC and have been running it for a little bit more than a year. In that time I've had zero issues with this board, it boots up quickly, and has enough features for a simple application. Recently I flashed the BIOS with no issues, hoping it would alleviate the issue of always running system fans at full speed, but not luck.
Pros: Price Size Easy to use
Cons: Limited connectivity No system fan control options
Summary: Biostar is very interesting. I have not had good luck with their full size ATX boards but the mATX parent boards are, to me, magnificent and just what I want and need in my computers. I am very pleased with this model.
Summary: Didn't expend much from a cheap Biostar motherboard. But it's surprisingly high quality, the layout is amazingly thought out, it fired right up on the first try, and the included software to install the drivers doesn't suck. I'm impressed and will order this board again when I need it.
Pros: Low cost. Poor lay out of power connector in relation with the DDR memory slots. Missing the back panel bracket to mount a standard Intel heat sink and fan. I don't understand why all these ppls have DOA MBs. I have been building multiple computer using all the vendors and never had a bad one from the box.
Cons: Lacking bracket as noted above. No mounting hardware: screws, etc.
