I've bought at least a dozen of these motherboards over the past year to couple with the A6-3500 or A8-3800 APU in the Realan E-i5 and E-i7 mini-ITX cases to sell as barebones HTPCs. This has allowed me to get to know the ins-and-outs of this motherboard pretty well. In general, it's a pretty good motherboard with alot of features at a decent price point. These days it's really the only FM1 mini-ITX motherboard available so there is not other choice.

Of the dozen or so I've had three go bad that I've had to replace. Usually the complaint is that it will no longer POST. I've been through one RMA with ASRock which wasn't too bad and took a couple of weeks to turn around. The rest I was able to replace through the retailer, either Amazon or the 'Egg. That means 1 out of 4 have been bad.

The biggest complaint I have with this board is the behavior of the BIOS. When in the BIOS, the A6-3500/A75M-ITX combination draws close to 90W as measure with a Kill-a-Watt. That tells me the BIOS is running the APU at maximum. It only takes 10 minutes or so of sitting in the BIOS doing nothing to get the CPU temperature reported as over 70C and the CPU fan running full blast. And, yes ASRock, the heatsink is seated correctly and the BIOS is the latest version. I have consistently reproduced this issue on every single A75M-ITX. As a matter of fact, I have one sitting right next to me as I write this and in open air the BIOS is reporting 76.5C and the fan is running at 2954RPM. Once you have Windows installed, idle at the desktop does not have this issue. Unfortunately, I have to explain to each and every customer this will happen so they don't freak out. The Gigabyte GA-A75N-USB3 board I have does not exhibit this behavior but I only have one and it's not available any longer.

I received this yesterday and immediately used it to upgrade an old PC to use as an HTPC. The installation was flawless and all is working well!

The only small issue I had is that what they send is the board and an audio cable (had me scratching my head what that is for). No box, and no driver CD. So, on first boot my graphics were ugly and I had no internet. Luckily I had a laptop nearby and was able to search for ASRock A75M-ITX Drivers and download them all. Then transferred to the new build via a flash drive, installed, rebooted, and everything worked great!

So...if you're planning to do an upgrade, do yourself a favor and download the drivers BEFORE rebuilding your PC. :-)

Also keep in mind there's only one expansion slot and it is PCIe 2.0 X16, and no support for older IDE connected hardware.

Pros:
1. Works out of the box with Ubuntu Linux 11.10.
2. USB 3.0. I was able to hit speeds of about 130-150 MB/s, during copy to and from a RAID 5 box with USB 3.0.
3. UEFI. A major leap over the ugly BIOS from days of yore.
4. Price. Much cheaper than the only other FM1 ITX motherboard in the market. The ASUS F1A75-I Deluxe. The Asrock mobo offers the same features as the Asus mobo.

Cons:
1. A couple of USB 3.0 for the front panel would have been nice. Not a major issue with me.
2. Price: at 90$ its still on the expensive side. Would love to see this mobo price dip down to below 50$

Excellent layout. Purchased for home theater "Media Center" box (XBMC). Sufficient number of SATA 3 ports for my application(4). Backplane includes USB 3 / eSATA 3/ Gigabit Ethernet & HDMI. Supports a wide variety of CPUs. Above average BIOS / support software.
My Build:
AMD A4 3400 (2.7 GHz dual core APU).
8 GB DDR3 1600 RAM
Kingston HyperX 120 GB SATA 3 SSD Boot Drive
Seagate 2TB SATA 3 (Media Drive)
Seagate 3TB SATA 3 USB 3 External (Media Drive)
ASUS Blu-ray Reader DVD Burner
PC Power & Cooling Mk III Silencer 400W Modular Power Supply
CoolerMaster Mini-ITX Case.
Windows 7 Pro / XBMC
HP MC Remote / Microsoft Wireless Comfort 5000 Keyboard/Mouse

The only real issue / complaint I have, related to the ASRock Mobo, is the lack of an onboard USB 3 header. Basic overclocking is simple, with the provided software. The software isn't perfect. Documentation is sparse. I did experience some problems of persistence and areas of overlap between the BIOS and run-time software. A few boots and experimentation solved the issues. I'm very happy with the build. The system is reliable, has excellent media player performance, all using about 1/3 as much electricity as my primary desktop. Blu-ray file playback is occasionally a bit laggy within XBMC. The same files play fine within the VLC player. A higher powered APU might solve this issue. Since I'm going for low wattage / heat / noise, I'll probably just use the VLC player. This Mobo is better suited as the core for a media player, rather than a media server. If you plan on using it for UnRAID / Plex / NAS, etc., you may want a few more SATA slots and/or possibly a 2nd Gigabit port.

this motherboard is awesome. The only bad thing is that there is no front usb 3.0 header on the motherboard. The apu is EXTREMELY EASY to overclock in UEFI. Just make sure you turn on PWM thermal controls though.
