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
-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.
-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.
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.
