5 out of 5 eggsExcellent product, small yet powerful

Pros: FM2+ support right out of the box, WiFi works well even without the attached antenna. Recognized my 1866 memory just fine and my 7700K, attached video card and away I went with gaming.

Cons: Price is a bit high for a FM2+ board, but it's mITX and you pay for it.

Other Thoughts: I don't understand how others have such issues with their boards, perhaps they don't read the manufacturer specs or supported hardware, either way I haven't had any issues and mine has been running for over half a year just fine.

5 out of 5 eggsGigabyte GA-F2A88XN-WIFI

Pros: This board is up and running fine for over a year. No problems with installation of Win7 64bit. Using a Kaveri A10-7800 4/8 core and 8Gig of ram, no video card and a 120Gig Corsair SSD boot drive. Games run fast and smooth at 1920x1800 with full options. I don't run bleeding edge games with poor graphics performance. WiFi runs fine, but I use wired. No issues with BIOS or UEFI or booting.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I have used ATX motherboards and M*I motherboards in the past, but none of those have the many options on this board. The deciding factor was the ability to use a Kaveri chip and you don't need a firmware upgrade to do it (this was Oct 2014). I also like the Optical S/PDIF out and WiFi 802.11ac.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: Small, nice features.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Most ITX motherboards are fairly bare bones but this has some quality features and was perfect for the small workstation I built for my parents.

4 out of 5 eggsGood investment

Pros: Simple to install. Gigabyte is quality. No difficulty with any aspects of the MB. Wifi is an excellent additional feature for this size board.

Cons: Had to pull the CMOS battery after initial install of OS. Would boot to Chkdisk and no further. Re-seated RAM and double checked all connections several times. After CMOS battery removal steps the OS loaded and have had no issues since.

Other Thoughts: It's a great MB for the HTPC I'm using it in. I'm glad I made the purchase after plenty of research.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat features with a few major issues

Pros: Built-in Wi-Fi, USB 3.0, and dual-HDMI...

Cons: It's a good thing it came with two HDMI ports because one died after about year of use. Same goes for the one of the SATA ports (port 1 specifically). The on-board wi-fi interacted poorly with my perfectly functional (albeit super-cheap) router. I upgraded to an Asus RT-AC66U and it's worked ever since.

Other Thoughts: I've been a Gigabyte fanboy for years despite having problems with a couple of boards. The way I figure it: you mass produce a product, you're bound to get a bad egg in the batch every now and then.

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not support FM2+ CPU

Pros: Small form factor, lots of ports. Wifi included

Cons: It does not support FM2+ out of the box, you would need FM2 CPU to update the bios and then put a FM2+. Gigabyte should have shipped it with the bios updated to the latest version

2 out of 5 eggsSlow RAM Speed

Pros: Installed cleanly in a tiny mini-itx case and everything went together as spec'd.

Cons: Purchased Gskill 2133 RAM. Motherboard claims its 1333 mhz. Not happy about that. Want the full performance. I tried AutoTune and set it to 2133. Windows still reports its running at 1333. No bueno. If Gigabyte would get back to me and help me get it squared away, stars will go up.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Tiny motherboard, overall layout is nice and the VRAM heatsinks are tall. It looks like it could actually push a decent OC on a small dual core APU, and maybe a small OC on a quad-core APU

Cons: BIOS is somewhat confusing, and the layout is weird; however once you figure out where everything is, it becomes easier to manage.

That's one egg off: Lack of easily navigable BIOS/EFI

For some reason that is completely crud, is that when in the BIOS/EFI, is that, it runs the CPU at full speed, maximum activity at as much voltage as it can take. Causing heat, and causing noise. However, setting it to the 65W max TDP option helps tremendously.

That's another egg off: Running the CPU pinned for absolutely no reason

Other Thoughts: I must say, I NEVER knew that mITX boards are TINY. Not where I can snap it, but where the entire board fits on my hand securely. Its no wonder these boards are cramped with all kinds of stuff to make great power. Kudos to manufactures for making these boards, without them, I wouldn't have been able to build one seriously mean NAS/HTPC box.

(Word of caution, the onboard RAID solution doesn't work in Linux too well. It might have been me, or that AMD doesn't support it, but I had to use a software RAID solution, mdadm)
