Pros
Sale Price, HDMI, 780G chipset which is great on-board video, probably the best thus far, 6 SATA ports, Copper Heatsink,
Cons
Must manually move two block jumpers to switch between DVI & HDMI. Now if it was a pure bios selection it would have been nice. I had to format computer 3 times until I was able to properly install the sound drivers. First time this has happened in building a compy. No Optical or Digital output on board, just pins.
Summary
This is a great board for the price but I should have purchased the ASUS M3A78-EM. That one has optical out, Firewire, Display Port, and External Sata (with 5 internal SATA).

Pros
Integrated DX10 ready graphics and micro ATX format makes it perfect for an HTPC.
Cons
I first tried a AMD Athlon 64 X2 BE-2350 CPU and it wouldn't power up. Not sure if it was the CPU or the MB not liking low power CPUs (NCIX was out of stock so we didn't try another one of the same model), I switched to a 4800+ which worked like a charm. Hardly a factual weakness, but maybe something to watch out for.
I was never able to get audio through HDMI. Not too big a deal since most TVs accept other audio input, same goes for sound systems...
Summary
Overall a really good (and cheap) board. Perfect for HTPC. Fit perfectly in my ANTEC FUSION black and the integrated graphics are just fine for watching TV/HD videos.

Pros
All in one motherboard. 6 SATA.
Cons
Only one IDE interface. Overclocking limited.
Summary
I updated my sister's computer, since it died because of thunderstorms. Plugged in her hard drive, and XP found the new hardware and the installed completed without any major glitches.

It would not take the Promise IDE card I put in, though.

It does allow memory voltage up to 2.2 volts, though, contrary to the M2N-E which only allows 1.95 volts.

Pros
easy set up with vista.
Cons
poor support for monitors
Summary
So far this m/b is great, but not the intergrated video. I tried for 3 days to get my second monitor working (digital) with no luck. so i finally bought an add on video card(Gigabyte Radeon HD RX3850 775MHZ 512MB) and problem solved. I do not normally buy a M/B with built in video but the price was right. So i would say the M/B is a good buy for the average user but strongly suggest buying a video add on. I'm only running a dual amd cpu for now until the $$ comes down on a quad core. 2gb of memory runs vista fine.
450 Watt power supply.

Pros
On board components top notch, reliable, works with OCZ ram
Cons
mATX board?
Summary
Works well with the AMD X2 4800+ processor with OCZ 2GB PC-6400 ram out of the box. Well worth the money if you do not require a dedicated video card.

Pros
Cheap, HDMI, On board video...
Cons
None
Summary
Bought this board for a budget gaming\media PC. Installed a AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ and a BFG GeForce 8800GT OC and it works the very best.

Pros
- Price
- HD 3200 as onboard audio
- DVI/HDMI
Cons
- DVI/HDMI
Summary
I bought this MB for a small multimedia computer, installed a phenom proc on it, work really fine.
I don't have any complain except one this that it not well explained.

first
the DVI/HDMI is TOGETHER.
it either one OR the other.
and the DVI is DIGITAL OUTPUT only, so no analog on it.
I found it somehow not well explain, and notice it when building.

That mean, if you plug a DVI LCD monitor, you won't be able to use HDMI at the same time. in fact you will even need to switch jumper as the manual say.

But still, for the price, I can manage that.

Pros
Price is cheap enough
Onboard video is fast
Lots of features for price
Cons
125W TDP processors will kill it
Poor quality PWM parts
Summary
I bought this board with a 9850BE without doing proper research. Guess what? If I run my CPU b full load I will most likely kill the board. Poor build quality is to blame. By saving $5-10 a board ASUS has given us a POS that is not capable of competing with the inferior Q35 chipset. I'd steer clear of it.
