Got this for a budget build. First ASRock board I have ever bought an I very please and impressed even though it is a basic board. It has good construction, board components are laid out nicely, UEFI is pretty...and had good overclock features and the board comes with some interesting features although not sure if many people will employ their 555XFast features. What actually impressed me the most is that is POSTS in a flash, literally 2 seconds and I'm loading into Windows. And thats with Fast Boot off!!!
This is one of the cheapest A75-FM2 motherboards available (when on sale). It would be nice to have an actual HDMI output. (I have yet to try a DVI-HDMI converter cable). 5.1 sound works but it would be nice to have all six ports at the back instead of having a PS2 mouse and keyboard port. The board only has 3 fan headers, two of which are PWM - but technically you don't really need a lot of fans for this small low powered board. The board will work with any 20-pin PSU without needing a 20 to 24 pin adapter. I understand that some people may need IR, COM and Printer ports but to actually include all these on the board seems like a waste.
UEFI bios is a nice touch and asrock also included a number of tools for tweaking. Works well so far as a small media-pc motherboard
