Summary: Bought this item in Nov 2011 during the thanksgiving sale. This was my first computer assembly and was a little nervous. But this board worked great the first time I plugged it in and has given me no troubles since then. It even recognized my wireless mouse and keyboard and the BIOS has a nice UI.
Summary: Researched this mobo and it seemed the best value. When I was about to seat my CPU, however, I removed the plastic protector from the socket and noticed one of the pins was bent downward. I know that there is always a chance for a damaged board, so I'm not overly upset.
Summary: [Note 4/11/2012: BioStar released its new line of Ivy Bridge Z77 motherboards last week. As good as my BioStar TZ68A+ has been for me, it is now an obsolete product for new purchasers. I can't recommend it anymore unless you can buy it on closeout for $70 or less with shipping.
