Summary: My first TA75M+ ran fine for a solid 1 year or so without any issues before I accidentally shorted the board it by not seeing a loose screw left in the case. I ordered another TA75M+ after having a good record with the first board and there's where the trouble started.
Summary: I feel as if the big company just stabbed me in the back. Sent out the rebate and waited for 6 months to find out I didn’t write the rebate code on the back of the envelope with that I was rejected the $15.
Pros: A75 chipset, SATA III and USB 3.0
Cons: The BIOS is not that great, provided software doen't work all the time, and the User's manual is a waist.
Summary: For the most part, it works. But now I can't have dual monitor setup because of obvious DVI port issues with this motherboard. Will be getting another GPU for dual GPU setup. I'd buy something else next time.
Pros: Not expensive. 6 sata ports. DVI and VGA ports. Nice BIOS interface.
Cons: DVI port failed twice, within 1 month (RMA) and 7 months of ownership. Fakeraid does not work with Linux.
Summary: Don't just don't, this mb isn't worth the effort imo, I would not advise anyone buy this particular TA75M+ motherboard. Not enough added connectivity options to make it worth the price when compared to what spending $10 more will get you.
Pros: it can turn on with an A8-3870K at least?
Cons: Bios will not update through afudos, Tbios updater, F12Bio-flasher etc. But just froze and never erased on all 20 tries so no brick. Bios is from 6/17/11 so it was launch bios, using 3870K and no where does Biostar advise having to have or buy another low end APU just to flash bios, bravo on supp...
Summary: The RTL8111E pci-express NIC supports Wake-On LAN according to Realtek's product page, but the option is not present anywhere in the UEFI BIOS. To make a motherboard these days without RAID 5 or WOL support just blows my mind.
Pros: Everything you'd expect from a standard FM1 Llano-compatible motherboard. Very stable, but I haven't touched overclocking yet.
Cons: No RAID 5 on any FM1 motherboards, but this motherboard includes the option in the BIOS, which locks up the board and forces a CMOS reset. Very bizarre. No Wake-On LAN support, which makes this board absolutely useless for a file-server. BIOS does not display correctly through the HDMI port. Terr...
