Summary: This board worked, but was not a good value. Unfortunately, (and it's my own fault) I didn't realize it only had two SATA headers internally and it did not have an internal 30 pin USB3 header. So, 1 SSD + 1 HDD + 1 Burner=no happy times. You have to add a card either way. Either to add more ports for SATA or for USB. (Or use the USB to 30 pin adapter outside the case.
Summary: This is a great little mini-itx board, would be good for a hackintosh. There are some irritating limitations though. This board only has 2 SATA plugs, so you are limited to 2 devices. This means one hard drive and one optical drive, or two hard drives and no optical drive. I found this didn't work for my computer plans, but if you do not find that limiting this board should work great.
Delivery and Customer Service was Great. Arrived quickly. Exactly what I expected

Summary: I bought this for my htpc build. Works great, everything installed easily. I've heard about problems using this motherboard with a intel g1610, but I didn't have any issues. Good product. good seller.
Summary: I'm building a bunch of systems with avertv cards in the PCI Express slot and standardized on this motherboard due to price and feature set. I've had more issues that can be believed. From the PCI slot seemingly turning off to it simply blacking out. I tried swapping avertv cards and even other motherboards. I tried reloading windows and nothing seems to work. All drivers are updated and the only thing installed is avertv application and driver and windows 7.
Summary: This motherboard used to be the SandyBridge mini-hackintosh recommendation on LifeHacker and TonyMacx86; now they are suggesting the Gigabyte GA-H55N-US; if you want to build an Ivy Bridge system they recommend the Gigabyte GA-H77N-WIFI or the GA-Z77N-WIFI model. The GA-H61N-USB3 has been great for general purpose personal computing for us and is still running strongly after more than 2 years of daily use in an open enclosure.
Summary: Nice TINY little board. Coupled it with a Cooler Master Elite 120 Mini-ITX Case and I was in business quickly to say the least. One more SATA controller would have been awesome as I have my OS on an SSD and a 1TB drive for recorder storage. Couldn't install my Blu-Ray drive.. Otherwise all is well. If I have a complaint is that the bios splash screen is god awful ugly.
