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. I had already installed the bracket for my aftermarket CPU cooling fan and had prepped the fan with thermal paste, and had to undo all that work and wasted some of my paste.
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. The direct replacement would be the new BioStar TZ77B. I don't see it yet here on Amazon, but it's available for about $110 elsewhere after rebate plus shipping.
