3 out of 5 eggsIt runs, but it's not the best.

Pros: -Good price

-Sturdy and reliable construction, felt thick and strong.

Cons: -Onboard video outputs were dead, not a huge issue as it was being used with a dedicated GPU anyway

-USB 3 pinout runs as USB 3, but there is no connector, not sure why they couldn't just put a USB 3 header there for 20 cents extra...

Other Thoughts: While I wouldn't recommend this board, if it were one of a few readily available, I would.

1 out of 5 eggsDead on Arrival

Pros: It arrived on time.

Cons: It was dead on arrival. I tried multiple power supplies. Since I spent so much time trying to figure out what was wrong, I missed the return deadline by 6 days. Now I've got a useless board I don't know what to do with.

3 out of 5 eggsCurrently No Linux Support

Pros: Inexpensive motherboard.

Cons: One of a handful of current MSI boards that has an issue running Linux.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as part of a cheap HTPC server, but found out after I received it that people have had issues running Linux on some MSI boards, including this one. I have tried 5 different distros and only Windows OSs will run.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,
We apologize for the inconvenience, our desktop motherboard are certified for Window operating systems, for Linux and open source kernel we cannot guaranty support on them due to the variety of different kernel and limitation on drivers access and support.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat motherboard

Pros: Great motherboard for my HTPC. Everything worked.

Cons: No USB 3.0
Seems to have some issues in Ubuntu with dual boot.(Windows works fine) - hopefully it will be fixed soon - one egg for it.

Other Thoughts: Documentation incorrect on jumper position for USB. Thought my board was faulty before I found another review here with correct details.

3 out of 5 eggsMSI A55M-E35 Mobo

Pros: First board booted up Win7 with no problems, many features for a economy class board. Low price makes this a good canidate for freinds to get started in building their own PC. UEFI BIOS in a APU board seemed like a good value.

Cons: Had trouble with second & third board, no video out of HDMI. NewEgg graciously returned for credit, before I discovered APU mobos do not like HDMI to DVI video cables. When I swapped cables to straight through the video worked.
Should have done more research on Linux dual booting, first build was for a friend who really wanted Ubuntu 14.04. Unfortunately, latest kernel has integrated video calls. This affect several Linux flavors and just not Ubuntu. I had to pass kernel options to get past blank screens and reboots. NOMODESET worked to get install completed, but not for the inexperienced.
Still working on dual booting, UEFI does not recognize my Ubuntu boot manager so far, starts Win 7 instead of GRUB boot manager.

Other Thoughts: Admittedly, this was my first experience with an APU board and I could have been more thorough experimenting with video before returning. Once again NewEgg shines through with return satisfaction.
Linux on this board is problematic, but not impossible. If your Google Fu is strong, it can be done by following specific steps. So far it is working using UEFI/legacy option in BIOS, just was not as easy as installing along side Win 7 anymore.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent board

Pros: Decent budget friendly board. Easy Install, bios settings are nice and fairly easy to get through.

Cons: Only con I have is the internal network port died within the first two weeks. I had a gigabit PCI card, so I didn't go through the RMA process, but a little disappointing it died so fast.

Other Thoughts: Decent board for a budget build!

5 out of 5 eggsFirst MSI board

Pros: This is my first MSI mobo, and I will be sticking with this brand in the future. Previously I was more concerned with saving money and used Gigabyte boards. The BIOS on this MSI is great, the board installed flawlessly, and I'm happy.

Cons: Nothing yet. I will update if something comes up.

Other Thoughts: This board went into a PC I built for a family member. It was paired with an AMD A8 processor, and so far everything has been great.
