Fairly small, but functional motherboard. It has a bunch of SATA3 headers on the board and 4 USB 3.0 ports which is plently. It doesnt have a lot of room for pci card expansions but it was fine for my build. My only complaint is that there is only 1 system fan header - which I think is odd. I ended up using a PWM fan splitter to power the two case fans.
It has an ethernet and USB 3.0's and hasn't died. No M.2 port though,
I had quite the experience with mobos. Firstly I got a MSI H97M-G43, which while being feature-rich shared a shortcoming of 99% of the H97 mATX boards I came across – the space between the PCI-E slot and the latches for the RAM is not wide enough to allow a beefy R9 390 to fit (without filing/sawing off the latches). Fast forward a few swear words and I returned the MSI. Instead I got the Gigabyte H97M-HD3 – spacious enough to fit a PowerColor R9 390 no problem! It has a single system fan header, though, so beware if you are building a beefy system with it – you will need a fan splitter adapter. Not an issue for me as I did not plan to overclock, hence no need for an extra fan.
