MSI K9A2 Platinum

26 June 2008
  • Summary: If Asus and every other vendor can perform disk-based BIOS updates without the need to use a RAM disk, why can’t MSI? So where does the MSI fall? The SATA ports could be placed better, but even that’s not a fatal flaw, as there are plenty of x16 physical PCI-E slots. What we do like is the SAS support, one extra PCI-E slot, better web support, and a pretty damned good street price of $150.
  • Pros: SAS support and super-low pricing.
  • Cons: Poor SATA port placement; fallback DOS update method is horrible.
