2 out of 5 eggs Bad board, good support 06/15/2011

This review is from: MSI G31TM-P21 LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

I really wanted to like this board. It was inexpensive and it works well (when it works).

Cons:

I have purchased 5 of these boards. One was DOA, another died after 9 months and I am currently replacing one that is either a few days over a year or a month under. I have always used another leading brand but after a bad rash of boards I decided to try MSI, which I am now questioning. I do admit, though, their RMA process is fast and no runaround. I like the service MUCH better than the other manufacturer.

Other Thoughts:

I purchased the first 2 of these boards to replace 2 dead MOBOs that died weeks apart at a client site. A third died a few months later at the same site. These were MSI boards but a different model and I was hopeful that I could swap them without the existing XP installation having a fit. It worked it makes me question MSI's quality... I have had 5 MSI boards die on me in 13 months. Still, the boards are replaced quickly and without question, except my year is now up for the next failure.
