Don't even bother.

Anonymous, Newegg
20 April 2013
  • Summary: Well after this experience i don't think i will be buying another product except their cases that are a pretty good bargain.
  • Pros: Worked OK for the first few weeks i had it except for some issues with bad temperature readings.
  • Cons: The video connector is pretty weird and i had to modify my connector to make it work and then within the first 2 days of ownership the DVI connector came loose due to the cheap plastic they used to make it breaking leaving my video cable wire hanging from the back. After a few weeks it randomly d...

It failed on me...

Zachary B., Newegg
25 March 2013
  • Summary: I'm disappointed. I've used Gigabyte boards in several other gaming PC builds for friends, and they've been great. Maybe they just stink at AMD boards.
  • Pros: It is affordable, and had all the features i was looking for.
  • Cons: It failed. I built this computer for my fiancee's mother who had an ancient and failing machine. I gave it to her shortly before Christmas, and it failed mid-March. The PC would simply not finish booting. At first I thought it was the SSD, but we couldn't install any OS on any drive we installed....

2nd and 3rd were a failure

S. Nelson, Amazon
27 February 2013
  • Summary: I bouught this for an economical build for internet browing and music for the carport. I've only been running it a short time but no hiccups. Set up was easy. I particuarly like the fact that the manufacturer lets you opt out of the bloatware included on the driver disc, for that alone they deserve...

BIOs is buggy

Sophie Y., Newegg
22 October 2012
  • Summary: Untill Gigabyte knows how important the boot drive user selected is so critical, their board can not be used for business where you have hundreds computer out there, suddenly not booting correctly because someone put a USB device in the bus.
  • Pros: Cheap and when you only has one hard drive, it works fine
  • Cons: When you have USB hub with SD, CF, and whole bunch media connected to the USB drive, this motherboard confused. Its BIOS does not allow you to select and fix which drive to boot. Rather it trys to determine for you, adding anything it can detect to its boot menu, even you have already installed O...

NEVER AGAIN

Ziad F., Newegg
14 September 2012
  • Pros: Compact and cheap.
  • Cons: Received as a part of a combo deal to build a barebones office pc using onboard graphics. Was getting random blue screens as well artifacts using onboard APU with AMD A8 processor. I tried replacing every single component (thank you newegg) to solve this problem. PSU, memory, fan, and hard drive ...

Horrid Little Thing

Jennifer G., Newegg
23 March 2012
  • Summary: i'm not even sure it's worth the shipping to get them rma'd, but it's to late to have newegg rma them anyways. don't get me wrong i LOVE newegg, but i'm REALLY having doubts about gigabyte now.
  • Pros: its blue?
  • Cons: this thing is about as stable as sybil on psychotropics, bought 2 of them, one failed after 4 months the other after 3 weeks, and when they WERE working, there were ALL sorts of problems, i replaced ram, and cpu's even hard drive's and power supply all to no avail. very unhappy.
