Good review, though I was surprised at the lack of HDMI/SPDIF. I really thought they'd be standard on a MATX board with onboard GFX now. Seems like a great board for what it does, but it doesn't exactly do what you want. Not sure what Biostar are trying to do with this one.

Didn't think of that tbh, and ur right.

I almost feel now that the mobo looks like it's perhaps 1 of 3 in a range or something, and this is the 'lite' edition.

£57 is kinda over stretching that thought tho.

Other than that, it does look like it does it's best to do what it is equipped with well enough. Biostar have made some mobos that similarly perform very well at what they offer.

I get the feeling now that this is a mobo shipped out to plug a previous generation gap for those who's mobos might have crapped out. Again tho, £57 aint right and I'm sure ASRock's attempts would be that much better and more equipped at doing that.

Complaints aside, the onboard managing over 30fps in that FarCry2 bench, even if maybe out of character, is fair for the HD4200. HTPC mobo - not really, but do able with more kit. Gaming pc - not really, but do able with more kit.

Odd one, great review.
