Pros:

First off, this is a beautiful board just to look at, then you realize how solid it is...no flex. It's laid out very cleanly...no doubt due to more and more operations on the CPU itself.
Everything worked out of the box
On-board debug LED
Clear CMOS button on outside
Click BIOS 4 UEFI interface
802.11 b/g/n WiFi & Bluetooth 4 support (I had no issues with LAN Ethernet either)
Takes full advantage on Intel 4th gen features (Haswell)
Live Update 5
Functions as advertised

Cons:

So much going on I can't stop tinkering and gloating.

Other Thoughts:

When updating the BIOS from M-Flash, make sure you select "BIOS and ME" otherwise you will hose the ME and loose functionality. Mine came with BIOS 1.2 and during the update process I inadvertantly selected just BIOS. My mistake, my fault. So...,

I called the MSI Tech Support Motherboard phone number 9am - 6pm (PST) and spoke with Warner who turned out to be friendly, professional and dedicated to troubleshooting and solving my issue. He didn't waste my time, understood the issue, got right to the point and fixed it, all while answering any questions I had along the way. It was top tier support from the get go. Very impressed.

Also, contrary to popular belief, it is recommended to install MoBo drivers from the disk that comes with your board and then updating to whatever is current.
