3 out of 5 eggs Good Motherboard - Forget the Warranty 01/12/2014

This review is from: MSI H81M-P33 LGA 1150 Intel H81 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros:

-Works as advertised
-DVI and VGA
-USB 3 (No header though)
-SATA 3. Using with an 840 EVO. Works as expected.
-Super cheap, especially if you hit it right with a $15 promo code.

Cons:

-No USB 3 Header. I had to buy a $5 USB 3 to 2 adapter to connect my front panel ports. (Not causing an egg deduction)
-No HDMI (Once again no egg deduction. Obvious from the ports.)
-Poor setup guide/manual with the product, but MSI has videos and a manual on their website. This wasn't a huge issue for me, but it would have been nice for them to spend the extra $.05 to throw one in. Because my main computer is on carpet, I ended up having to view it on my iPhone, which made seeing the videos difficult.
-The warranty is a joke. One reason I bought this was because of the $10 warranty on top of a $15 discount. The $15 discount already made it a good cheap socket 1150 motherboard, but that $10 sealed the deal for me. It certainly isn't like Corsair's rebates.

Other Thoughts:

It would be hard to recommend without the promo code, unless your case in mind doesn't have USB 3. A lot of other motherboards in this price range (no promo) have a front panel USB 3 header and HDMI.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issues that you are having with this product.
What warranty did you purchase? If it was from Newegg or other then it's not our warranty.
Our motherboard comes with 3-year limited warranty, see below.
