  • Remind me not to buy any Gigabyte products from when those reporters were there. We all know how reporters like to shed! :)

  • I couldn't help but notice that with the exception of 3 men in the last 2 pictures, every other employee of Gigabyte seems to be female. I always associate factory jobs with men, but apparently things are different in Taiwan. Of course, it could just be that the photographer "forgot" to take pictures of men.

  • Wow! you should also visit the other top 3 makers ASUS and MSI. Let's compare them which one is much professional on this. ^_^

  • very insightful. im guessing women workers are on the floor probably because they are more agile with their smaller hands. After all, it's only fair for women to make 'mother'boards i assume :)

  • Wow, that is cool. I have seen wave soldering in person so I know how precise and neat that is. I'm not sure I like how that guy is looking at my DS3L in slide 18 or 19 thought...

    Whisper silent... I hope those are earbuds and not earplugs then. I think I'd have some form of carpel tunnel in a week there. Makes me appreciate the boards a bit more.

    Thanks for a smart (though not super detailed) write up with fewer then usual errors in the writing!

  • The Board in picture 17 has a really wicked rear. 4 RJ45 (possibly LAN) connectors and 8 USB? Which Gigabyte board is that?

  • Wooow that really impressive! That wants me to choose Gigabyre over other brands seeing the quality of the production and how much manual labor giving the quality over quantity

  • I had 5 expensive gigabyte motherboards which died in less than one year, amd 939 socket(2006), that was a well known gigabyte issue, why do you think they advertise "durable capacitors" on all of their boxes, tried 2 mobos 2 years after, got I bad, no longer trust gigabyte. Now I just buy Asus mobos. I'm surprise they have become the third largest motherboard manufacturer in the world.

  • Picture #17, what kind of board is that? it has FOUR Ethernet ports and EIGHT native USB ports, on top of legacy PS/2 ports?! I want THAT!

  • I'm surprised they have supposedly become the third largest motherboard manufacturer, which I just found out it's not true.
    Please check on digitimes financial information and check revenues for 2007 and it clearly states, gigabyte it's barely number 6.
    please take a look at:
    http://www.digitimes.com/fin/CoList.asp
    and just pull down "mobos" and "motherboard" info and check by yourself.
    They also have 2008 sales up to june and 1st quarter numbers as well.
    Asustek is a monster company.
