I bought this because of a motherboard failure on one of my PCs. I already have a Gigabyte 790FXTA-UD5 which has been very reliable so I decided to buy Gigabyte again. The motherboard looks impressive and very well made, a replacement back plate was supplied so that all the usb ports etc were nicely housed. If your PC case does not have a replaceable I/O plate, it is extremely old, you need to replace it! The CPU ZIF lever is metal not plastic so I'm not sure why it was referred to as "filmsy" by some reviewers, it's a standard metal lever. Ultra Durable referrs to the thickness of the copper traces, and higher quality components with a higher life expectancy. Try Googling "Gigabyte Ultra Durable", doesn't meant it will never fail but it should last much longer. The board was revision 2 the latest.
Fitting it was very easy, I had to add one extra brass standoff. The board layout allowed fitting of the CPU, cooling fan and DDR3 ram before fitting the M/B into the case. All of the securing screws could be fitted without touching CPU/RAM.
It was also possible to raise the edge of the board to fit the 20/24 pin plug allow pressure to be applied from top and bottom instead of just downward.
The only thing I had to change was the Power LED connector. My previous M/B needed a 3 pin plug with 2 pins next to each other. This M/B needs the pins at each end i.e. a gap between them, I think this is more usual.
After fitting and checking, powered up straight into BIOS setup, can't ask more than that.
I am very pleased with this motherboard.

Great , does all it needs,
Got my FX 4300 in it and it helps alot with overclocking more than other boards
The usb 3.0 is so useful these days on a budget board. Can`t beleive that Gigabyte could cram so much into this in such a low price, Props to them :)
The only slight complaint is the placement of the rear I/O ports, as the usbs are not all near each other but that`s just an artificial complaint that i found but it doesn`t really matter.
5 Stars. Great product, Amazing for its price. Worth a purchase

great, cheap lil board. nothing much to say to be honest. fit this with my phenom II X6 1055T and 12GB RAM and worked straight out the box. so far only had it one day but the board seems to be keeping very good temps even when the system is under loads, did some game testing and is very capable of that as well! if your on a budget then this is probably for you, though i will update review as time goes on. seems very solid so i have no doubts it will last a long time!
