Summary: While I have owned some MSI products over the last 15 years and had no problem within the warranty periods, I will not be purchasing other MSI products unless miraculously I can somehow feel differently about this fiasco.
Pros: Worked for over a year built-in Bluetooth and Wifi are a plus USB 3.0 rear & front panel header were nice for it's time
Cons: Once components started failing within the warranty period the nightmare began. First the PCI-Express slot worked intermittently. I swapped to the onboard ports to continue use. It was a problem (especially since I was running an ATI 5950) but I took it as the signs of an aging board. Then I bega...
Summary: the Motherboard worked great, right out of the box, easy setup, very tiny, I had to lengthen some of the cables to reach but all in all a good buy. Odd that it did not come with cover plate or directions.
Summary: Over all I am very happy with this board and MSI in general. These APUs are impressive, I have this system connected to my game room's projector and it runs most games on high settings without a dedicated graphics card.
Pros: Great little board, good layout, nice that it has WIFI and Bluetooth built in. Good build quality and nicely laid out.
Cons: The WiFi antenna hangs by a thread and falls out all the time. Wifi works without the antenna but there is a rang decrease. I usually have a wired connection but this could be a problem for someone who is unable to run a wire. I noticed they went with a screw in antenna in the newer model.
