1 out of 5 eggs MY LAST MSI PURCHASE. REBATE IS A CON! 08/22/2009

This review is from: MSI 770-C45 AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros:

It was not masquerading as an IED - in other words the things you can google about in the news that go bang, so I am still here and able to write this now.

Cons:

1. Don't be hoodwinked regarding your hard-earned money regarding rebates! A rebate was advertised on this exact mobo with the newegg link to a rebate and everything. I checked the dates and the rebate date went until 8/2 and it was was only 7/28 so you'd think that was fine right? Wrong. MSI created the link and Newegg even added it to the listing and it only applied to sales 7/31-8/2. Bad MSI and bad Newegg! How absurd. I've saved $100's doing rebates and never seen such atrociously misleading advertising. To list a rebate offer and not honor it by sneaky FINE PRINT is disgusting.
2. I troubleshot over and over and couldn't figure out what the problem was with the mobo during installation. After hours of wasted time, it turned out the vdeo adapter slot was faulty. Thanks for poor quality control as these should have been tested with a multimeter at the factory. Thanks for deceptive advertising and poor quality MSI.

Other Thoughts:

First and last MSI purchase. I will stick with Intel and Asus mobos.
