4 out of 5 eggsworks great in the right application

Pros: No frills, solid B85 chipset Mini-ITX motherboard. Pretty good layout. not much to say about it other than it works.
USB 3.0 Header is nice.

Cons: Most of these cons can be simply linked to the limitations of the B85 chipset
Only 4 sata ports. only 2 USB 3.0 ports on the rear.
One of the biggest things that bothered me was the inclusion of only 1 case fan header. It would have been nice to have 2 fan headers - 1 for rear fan and another for the front fan.
Too expensive for the lack of features. I understand Mini-ITX carries a premium price for some reason.

Other Thoughts: Paired this with an Intel Core i5 inside a Prodigy case. Look elsewhere for a feature packed setup

5 out of 5 eggsNice Board

Pros: It's ITX form factor and runs at lower tdp. It was ready to go with Windows 8.1 out of the gate in the bios.

Cons: Didn't have the off charging feature. I would use it every now and then. Not a problem though... I got another machine that does have that feature. But I knew this going in so I cant dock points for it.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: MSI makes some good boards. This one had some good features for a mini ITX at a reasonable price. Great Newegg customer service as usual.

Cons: As soon as I got the board, there was a small metal part lose out of the bag. Found where it went on the motherboard and was able to put it back on, but strange first impression. As I was setting up the PC I was a bit disappointed to see there was only one internal USB 2.0 port (as my mini case had 4 on the front). When got the PC all setup and turned it on, it stated memory change detected (which I have never seen on NEW boards - only when swapping or changing memory on previously setup board). This tells me that the motherboard sold here by Newegg was used! Ended up that I had issues with this motherboard (possibly why it was returned and maybe resold??). Had to RMA it for a refund.

1 out of 5 eggsDead on arrival

Pros: N/A

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: When I got it, I assembled the computer but it failed to post. So I stripped out everything but the cpu, memory and power supply. I turned it on, no beeps, and no display. I tried to send it back but the serial number sticker fell off so I couldn't return it. Called MSI's tech support, got a guy who said he setup an RMA which I am still waiting to see if I even get the information for the RMA in my email and then hung up on me. So far I view it as DOA motherboard and poor customer support has me wishing I stayed with Asus who at least with me, I always had good luck with.

5 out of 5 eggsCustomer Review of the MSI B85I

Pros: * Nice board, works well. My first MSI board.
* Running with an Intel 4130T CPU, 8GB 1.35v Memory, and Pico PSU. Pulling <13 watts from the wall at idle! Tried Seasonic SS-400FL2 PSU also. Overkill but also very energy efficient.
* Easy to use BIOS configuration.
* Good PWM fan BIOs options that work well - for a quiet PC that still can cool things down when the CPU is cranking.
* Has DisplayPort output. Lots of mini-itx boards don't.

Cons: * BIOS options are pretty simple on this B85 board which is fine for me with this build. Make sure BIOs does what you want before purchasing.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat lil-mobo

Pros: Just what I was looking for, price was right. Fired right up, no issues. Using a LB-Link wireless usb adapter which I already had.

Mated with Haswell i-3 4130 shoehorned into a Rosewill RS-MI-01 BK Mini ITX Tower/ Desktop case. Everything fits nicely. I'm not using optical drives with this.

Cons: No Cons.

Other Thoughts: Hardest part of the build was getting my W7 Pro installed without CD. Can't ding anyone on that but myself. Using Windows 7 USB/DVD download tool will save you time. Also need a flash drive that will work with said tool.
