Summary: I bought 2 of these, one is running Ubuntu system and the other is running 64-bit Windows 7 every day, pretty much all day for 9 months. I haven't had any problems except briefly the Realtek optical driver would make the sound fade in and out.
Pros: Low price Excellent support from vendor site Fast Reliable
Summary: This board is sweet! i was looking for a cost effective board to build an HTPC. This one fits nicely into my micro atx case that i also got here on amazon. Paired mine with the AMD A8-3870K APU.Its designd for the AMD FM1 processors but only has two dimm slots though, so beware.
Summary: This is my first APU system and so far I love it. Is fast, play game smooth, have no error or blue screen. I always trust Gigabyte for their nice work with their motherboards. This is by far a keeper. If you looking for a cheap build that will not break the bank.
Pros: This motherboard is great and amazing for the price. I got this with an A8-3850k when newegg had a combo deal with it. The board works great so far, tested under GW2 Final beta, and other MMO. The feature of this board are great and runs everything smooth.
Summary: Amazingly simple and perfect for the AMD processor I purchased as well. Appears to be high quality and durable.
Pros: Purchased this as part of a DIY bundle, and this was my first go at building a computer from the ground up. Absolute easy and simple install. Manual was even easy to reference as needed! Everything was clearly labeled and easy to get to.
Summary: As above, this was my first AMD FM1 socket build. A75 was the best out there and it was a kit at a great price. I went Bulldozer for my personal upgrade machine, this was a gift and so far it gets rave reviews.
Pros: Came as a kit Gave me a good base to use A6 as my first FM1 socket build
Summary: I really don't know why so many people are having problems with this board. Either they're having bad luck or just inexperienced, but this board works as expected. I have it running a fileserver with 5 1.5TB drives in it and it's been on all day everyday for the last 2 months or so (0 downtime).
Pros: Small form factor. Decently packed with features. Doesn't generate much heat. More than enough SATA ports Cheap Gigabyte is a top-tier brand
Cons: 2 PCIE ports.. for a board like this, anything more than one is completely unnecessary Big caveat: Will not default to HDMI audio when hooked up through hdmi. You have to disable the device in sound devices and restart your computer. Don't know why... but apparently the drivers are a bit sketchy ...
Summary: I'd recommend this board to anyone wanting to build an average Llano system inexpensively.
Pros: No problems. This board runs Mushkin Redline 1600 RAM at advertised timings of 220.127.116.11 Command 1T bank time 31 with an FM1 3870 APU. Bios easy to navigate. Everthing works including Mushkin Chronos SSD. I'm not into OC. The USB 3.0 works great. It's pure AMD and this means just AMD USB drivers a...
Cons: Only one system fan post. To put in a front fan would require molex added to PSU, with more clutter. Something I overlooked in my reading and looking at specs and pictures. Would not have stopped me anway. Biggest negative is this and my other new Gigabyte board do not support a blinking power LE...
Summary: The first GA-A75m-D2H board I had would not recognize my HDTV as a primary display (a problem with the A75 chipset). Updating to the newest BIOS at the time bricked the board. I exchanged it for a new board. This one also did not recognize my HDTV.
Pros: -An A75 board that actually works with HDMI with latest BIOS -An A75 board where USB 3.0 actually operates as 3.0 -SATA 6Gbps with plenty of ports and no right angles -Full featured BIOS options -Great Memory support -Many Overclocking features
Cons: -Only 2 Memmory DIMMs -No PATA slots -Only 1 PCI slot -The dual PCI-e x16 slots are in x16/x4 configuration -Does not overclock well in AHCI or RAID mode (an A75 chipset limitation) Early BIOS update bricked the motherboard. I went through two GA-A75M-D2H's because of this. After the first, I mad...
Summary: Pros: Everything you would want on a standard ATX motherboard, in a nice, mATX form. Setup is very easy, the BIOS has that old school appearance (I like this) and is easy to navigate. The manual is clear and easy to read.
Summary: My new build is one of several months of a little bit now and a little bit later. Since this is my system, I have taken my time. I just hate having to reload files and software. I did have the presence of mind to purchase a data transfer device so I could click and drop files.
