Summary: Great mobo considering its category, price, features and performance, i coupled it with a A10 7700k to run the GPU cores i needed to update bios, very easy and straight forward with the bios update tool included in utilities cd, i did not overclock yet but am sure it can handle some tweaking.
Summary: This was my first ever mini-ITX build and WOW am I impressed. I got this for a build I did for my inlaws who needed the computer to be small and quiet so it would not get noticed under the counter in the kitchen.
Summary: I've been a Gigabyte fanboy for years despite having problems with a couple of boards. The way I figure it: you mass produce a product, you're bound to get a bad egg in the batch every now and then.

Cons: It's a good thing it came with two HDMI ports because one died after about year of use. Same goes for the one of the SATA ports (port 1 specifically). The on-board wi-fi interacted poorly with my perfectly functional (albeit super-cheap) router. I upgraded to an Asus RT-AC66U and it's worked ever...
Summary: This motherboard was an upgrade for me from an asrock with soldered on processor. Worked with my Athlon X4 860k right out of the box without a bios update. (Some motherboards don't work with Kaveri CPUs out of the box) Wifi reception is great better than my old usb adapter on my old motherboard.
Small mobo for a small case. Choose CPU cooler carefully if you need the PCIe slot.

Summary: This mobo is compact for a smaller case so choose your components carefully, in my build my CPU fan (Scythe Big Shuriken) is very close to blocking the PCIe slot. I haven't installed a GPU yet, it may not fit. Other reviewers mention a few coolers that fit better. No issues with AMD FM2+ CPU.

Summary: Does everything as advertised. Bought this to replace a prior motherboard that would not post with the Athlon 860k I had purchased. Comes with a wireless antennae. Installed a Noctua NH-L9x65 heatsink and the DIMM slots are a little too close, meaning I have to squeeze the RAM in at an angle.
