I bought eight of these motherboards to build systems for a client. The client needed something inexpensive, stable and that had legacy inputs like a PS/2 keyboard and VGA. I paired each one with a Intel Celeron G530 CPU, Kingston ValueRAM 4GB 1333MHz DDR3 RAM, various SATA II hard drives and Asus DRW-24B1ST (Black) DVD burners all in the excellent Antec NSK4482B case.

This motherboard was very easy to build with. The front panel connectors are labelled right on the motherboard, which is convenient. There is a CPU and chassis fan header. There are two RAM slots and 4 SATA connectors. There's plenty of room around the CPU for the heatsink. Everything was well spaced and laid out.

Each motherboard booted right up with no issue and Windows 7 Professional x64 detected everything with no problems. The motherboard CD, like all the ASUS driver CDs I've used lately wants to install some bloatware, including this time Google Toolbar, but it's easy enough to opt-out. Pick InstallAll and then the customize drivers options. It'll let you uncheck Google Toolbar, Norton Antivirus and a couple of other thing not necessary.

So far, this board has been everything I need for this client: inexpensive, stable, easy to work with and having all the inputs they need so they can save money by reusing their keyboards and existing monitors.

So far, very pleased with this motherboard. I've yet to be disappointed by ASUS and am once again satisfied that I received a solid product at a reasonable price. Although your options for upgrading in the future are somewhat limited, this is more one of those boards that you buy for a specific system -- not something you are periodically going to upgrade going forward.

My goal was to build a new intel system for Battlefield 3 and keep the cost down. I paired this board with an i5-2400 cpu, 8GB of DDR3, and an AMD HD 6950 video card. Runs BF3 on high detail without any frame-rate issues and didn't break the bank to build.

I'm a fan of the mATX form factor, and given that I have no plans to go Crossfire/SLI, it's a nice lower-cost, physically smaller platform than a full ATX gaming-centric board.

Summary:

Pros:
- ASUS quality
- Small footprint
- Low cost
- compatible with sandy-bridge/socket 1155 i3,i5, and i7 cpu's
- 10/100/1000 LAN

Cons:
- Only two DIMM slots
- No multiplier-based overclocking (due to the H61 chipset)

i have been an asus fan for many years and asus have never put me down yet since the first asus motherboard i have during the slot 1 era,p4800,1156 and now the 1155 era. so far i have no issues with my p8h61 motherboard right now with the intel i3 / 3.3ghz, it is too early to say, it is working fine so far since december 2010. If i could have waited long enough i could have bought the p8p67 model motherboard because it has potential and more room for upgrades and the price for the P67 board went down. So if your not in a hurry to built one, just wait for the price to go down. I put a 4 star because the price is a little bit high, and you can't overclock or play around with this motherboard, it is a simple straight forward motherboard and limited room for upgrade. I hope this review is helpful.

Used this mobo in a build I did for a family member. It has everything she needs and nothing she doesn't. Definitely wouldn't recommend for a gamer who might be looking to expand in the future as slots are limited. I really like how the different connectors are labeled right on the PCB. Makes hooking everything up a much more pleasant experience. I also like the power saving options available in the BIOS which is impressive in itself as it uses a graphical interface. Comes in a static bag and with good documentation. Make sure to find the port cutout in the packaging before you go wondering how you're going to get the mobo ports to line up with your case's factory cutout. It has two inputs on the motherboard for USB 2.0 connections. I have one input connected to the 2 USB ports on the front of the case and the other input connected to the Sony combination USB 2.0 port/card reader in one of the 3.5" drive bays. Make sure to download and install the latest BIOS update from Asus for best functionality. Highly recommended.

I ordered this on recommendation from a friend to replace a mobo in an HP computer that was freezing up every time I used it. It fit form factor-wise and was easy to install. Instructions - no problem with them. Worked first time out of the box. Drivers are on CD, which is included with it. It is a great replacement for the original mobo in my computer.

I've been using this board (rev. 3) for about 7 months now, paired with an Intel Celeron G530 and 8 GB of g.skill ddr3 1333 memory. It has no trouble keeping up with the 50-60 hour a week, day-in-day-out usage it goes through, though the system is rarely pushed to its limits. I commonly use it for visual studio 2010/2012, audio/video encoding, virtualbox and some gaming.

The G530 comes with intel HD 2000 integrated graphics which the motherboard faithfully and flawlessly hands off to the dvi video output, though I have not benchmarked it. Windows 7 Pro runs smoothly and there have been no graphics glitches or driver problems. Games like Diablo 3, L4D2 and other Source engine games, World of Tanks, etc run at passible framerates on medium quality at 1440x900. The board also supports HD3000 graphics but I haven't tested that, lacking the appropriate CPU. In the last month, I ended up adding a discrete graphics card and the board sanely defaulted to using the pci-e graphics adapter instead of the integrated with no BIOS configuration needed.

The on-board audio codec sounds pretty reasonable, considering it is integrated. Subjectively, my external USB DAC sounds better, but I regularly use the on-board audio and don't mind it at all. There's an S/PDIF header on the board if you need high quality audio output.

I haven't pushed the gigabit ethernet very hard, but it'll push/pull 80+ MB/sec to my NAS over CIFS on a regular basis. Like everything else on the board, it worked out of the box with no manual configuration required and no maintenance since.

Pros:
- Low cost
- No hassle setup. Physical installation is simple and the board is well labeled. Windows 7 autoconfigured everything.
- Solid and reliable so far.
