I WILL NEVER BUY BIOSTAR AGAIN!!!

JONATHAN C., Newegg
6 August 2013
  • Summary: I WILL NEVER BUY A BIOSTAR PRODUCT EVER AGAIN, PERIOD !!!!
  • Pros: Has good features.
  • Cons: This board lasted almost 6 mouths. The only overclocking I did on this board was for the RAM do to it being underclocked and not see the correct speed. Biostar tech support sucks. Emails that "were" replied are short and vague at best. I will not go into detail of the problem as it will take too ...

  • Summary: Buy any big name brand unless you need a nice red white and black paper weight. Then I can recommend Biostar.
  • Pros: Keeps papers on my desk from flying around.
  • Cons: RMA'd it to Biostar and they sent the same board back. They did tell me it had the latest bios on it which I knew cause duh I updated it. Reinstalled it in the case and sure enough was a waste of my time still would not load an operating system. So I borrowed a board from a friend and yep you gue...

Thankfully it's Discontinued.

IT C., Newegg
2 May 2013
  • Summary: I manage over a hundred computers and I didn't get around to installing and testing this junk until one day past the return policy date. Oh well, to the junk pile it goes. Thankfully newegg quit stocking this nightmare.
  • Pros: Brand that I have bought many motherboards from.
  • Cons: Windows crashed after install and wouldn't boot. Updated BIOS and it fixed that. System super slow with random freezes. Network card dies after using for awhile. Updated all drivers for motherboard. Network card still doesn't support 1gbit network speed as advertised. Installing Office 2010 took ...

DOA

Josh T., Newegg
15 April 2013
  • Summary: Between my problems with Gigabyte, and Biostar now, I don't think I will ever buy either companies products again! Plus, what's with them making you pay for the return shipping if they're the ones who released a non-functioning product!!!! Boo!!
  • Pros: Pretty nice looking board, and nice features for the price!
  • Cons: Dead! Will not post. Gets power, but no video, post, or even a debug code.

2 DOA, Horrible Support!

Dr E., Newegg
11 April 2013
  • Summary: This has been a frustrating two weeks trying to get a business I work for it's workstation. I will never buy another Biostar product, I should have gone with Asus like I was thinking in the beginning.
  • Pros: None, never managed to get a working board.
  • Cons: First board I received I hooked all up and determined it was dead, the second one came and I was having the same issues. This was highly unlikely so I found known working parts to put it together and still would not work. Called Biostar and was given the run around with a little bit of help. Fina...

Tried to Save a Little Money

Anonymous, Newegg
11 March 2013
  • Pros: Looks nice.
  • Cons: Arrived not working; almost making it through POST. Gives a CMOS warning, which just comes up too fast to catch what the problem is. Everything from my 890 machine was put onto the board (systematically and collectively), and it acted exactly the same. I went to the local computer shop and picked...

Great except it doesn't work

Mark J., Newegg
8 March 2013
  • Summary: Starting to wish I had bought another brand of board. More money, but then asprin is not free either
  • Pros: Nice color scheme. Has all the features that I needed at a good price.
  • Cons: Wouldn't load an operating system. Would POST, let me setup my 2 SSD's in a RAID 0 but would not load an operating system. All my other components are fine tested in another system.
