H87 Intel Motherboard Advice

I may be seeking to migrate my machine to an intel platform from an AMD one very soon. I do not overclock and I do not run multiple GPUs, so I believe that an H87 board will serve my needs perfectly. I've narrowed the motherboard choice down to

-ASRock H87 Pro4
-Gigabyte GA-H87-D3H
-ASUS H87-plus

I currently have an ASRock on my build, and have had no problems with it, but I know the Pro4 is one of their "lesser" boards, so I want to make sure it's still good. Can I consider the three listed above as "equals," or is there something missing here that I need to consider?

  1. Pretty much, I'd give the nod to the Rock, unless one of the others in particular has something you want

    There's very little difference between lower-midrange boards like those - you don't plan to OC, can't CF/SLI, so the only real difference is build quality and ports. More USB == Better.

    Asus, Gigabyte, ASRock, and MSI are all good enough for this, though I'd avoid brands like ECS, Biostar, and Foxconn on principle. Intel is overpriced.

    There's no real reason to get a full ATX board - micro-ATX is usually cheaper, and you don't sacrifice much.
