Pretty much everything you need, nothing you don't (that includes RGB). Dual NICs is a great feature and they support teaming. The included wifi solution is blazing fast for when you can't plug in.
M.2 NVMe support is a great touch especially for size-conscious ITX builds.
A little on the pricey size, for an H chipset but whatever

from completed build Frankenstein Build - Low Budget SFF Hackintosh and Windows Box
I got this motherboard from Microcenter with a $30 discount when combined with a processor. I got a bit of an extra discount because of a problem I had with the previous board.
They call this board extra durable which seems like a weird flex, but okay. So far the board seems to do everything I need it to do. I like the 2 M.2 sockets. The one on the bottom of the board is Nvme only while the top socket takes Nvme and SATA.
There are a couple (like 2 literally) RGB LEDs on this board if you're into that sort of thing. They are controlled by Gigabyte's RGB software and there is also an option to set them in BIOS. The BIOS seem robust and easy to understand.
I'm taking off 1 star in this review because I feel there should be a few more USB ports, even if they're USB 2. There are 4 USB 3 ports on the back of this board with the option for USB 2 or 3 to the front header. So this build has 2x USB3 ports in the front, 4xUSB3 in the back, and a USB-C port in the back.
