Pros
Inexpensive
Has all the updated features someone would want
Cons
None so far
Summary
Have used this board twice in the past month on two friends builds upgrading them to AM3+ platforms. Both upgrades went flawlessly would recommend to anyone on a budget looking for a quality board.

Pros
Great Value, packed with features, solid performance, NCIX great service.
Cons
None considering the form factor and price.
Summary
A good buy with integrated sound & video. I have had no issues since the first boot. I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 64bit with AMD FX4100 quad core, 8gb crucial ram. I haven't tried windows yet. It is a compact board so it will fit in smaller cases although I have a full tower Lian-Li. Recommended if you are looking for a budget system for everyday use, even looks cool with windowed case under cold cathode light. Very happy so far!

Pros
Everything: great features, BIOS recovery, stability, supports AM3+
Cons
VGA port flexes, maximum of 16GB of RAM
Summary
I bought this board mainly because I wanted a stable system and not have to deal with unstable mainboard drivers from some cheap mainboard company. Knowing that ASUS is a reliable brand, I decided to pay more to get the stability I want.

Other than the VGA flexing issue (which does not matter as I have a dedicated graphics card now), the board is amazing for its price. I definitely recommend this board.

Hopefully ASUS releases a BIOS update  which increases the maximum allowed RAM. This board currently only supports a maximum of 16GB. Other boards even in the low-end support 32GB. While overkill, 32GB isn't a bad thing to have.

Summary
got this motherboard , Running nice with apu quad core 3.6 . Had zero issues from the get go.the board installed nice and quick. easy overclocking utilities , bios flashes quick for use with new apu chips , overall a great budget board for the average user or a gamer itching to play newer games

Pros
Tidy Little Board for an MATX Build.
Cons
None
Summary
Solid little board for an MATX build. Haven't had a problem with it at all. Does what its suppose to do and does it well. I suppose the trademark Asus Powder Blue(tm) might clash with some components if you have a window on your PC. But I don't, so no one can see the fashion faux pas between it and my red G.Skill ram...

Sata3, ddr3. usb3, 4 memory slot, all on a mATX.
Cons
1cpu fan. 1 case fan only.
Summary
This is a nice motherboard, the only thing i dont like on it its that you only have 1 cpu fan and 1 case fan plug on the m5a88.
