this was bought to replace my board of less than a year old lets call it A--- as it rarely found the hard disk i had to go in bios to select the harddisk but this board is running 3 hard disks and a sata dvd r/rw and no problems i rate this motherboard 99% of 100 it will get the other 1% if its still behaving in 6 month (A GREAT MOTHERBOARD)
I bought this to upgrade son's PC, which was showing signs of age, & needed more RAM, but the existing MB could only handle 2 gb, so bit the bullet..having researched online, and via computer mags, this Gigabyte board came up as a good choice. I kept his existing processor, and ordered this MB, along with a new cooler and more ram. Upgraded it yesterday, the only issue was that I had to reinstall Windows (7HP), as I had feared, but although it was a bit of a chore, he now has a clean install, with no cooling issues and more ram. The board was a straight swap, but obviously a much better bit of kit,and for the cash I spent, it was great value. And I can upgrade his processor at a later date if needed. I can also add more HD, as there are 3 SATA sockets, and more front USB ports, as there are two USB sockets on the MB. Excellent... Recommended for AM2+ upgraders or builders...
This was bought to repair a friend's PC, which had a fried Asrock mobo.
No complaints whatsoever. It is a well-made product at a great price, with all the functionality required. The connectors are clearly laid out, the manual is comprehensive and it took all of an hour to install the mobo, swap components and get the machine up and running.
This product offers very good value for money. The only critisism I have is there is no mention of compatability issues with previous versions of SATA on certain other hardware. This makes it difficult to retrieve data from hard drives using earlier versions of SATA. Knowing what I do now this would not stop me from purchasing this motheboard again if needed in the future.
