Pros: Very fast, easy install. 8350 dropped right in, running 32GB G-Skill 2133 RAM. I am not a gamer, I built this for virtual machines.
Cons: Intermittent BSODs due to USB driver problems even after BIOS update and installing updated drivers from MSI, audio problems come and go. My USB mouse and keyboard will provide a warning that a BSOD is about to occur by freezing. I don't OC, these are irritating and MSI needs to resolve these driver problems.
There are far more cons with this board after over a year of use with it. Audio - it is a problem, you have to tweak it to reduce (not eliminate) problems on playback of streaming audio or video, otherwise it will bluescreen.
Cannot use USB 3.0 and it constantly loses USB keyboard and mouse. In fact, this board just bluescreens frequently. Arrived with a dead USB connector, fortunately there are extras.
Other Thoughts: MSI never fixed the USB driver problems, it is not the 3.0 drivers, it is the 2.0 drivers that are a problem. I am going to get rid of this headache for a different manufacturer.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Used it once.
Cons: Caused my OS to prevent other USB devices from installing - like my printer. Caused my USB mouse & keyboard to randomly freeze. I had a new Rosewill card reader for a different build, so I took out this piece of garbage and put in the Rosewell (it uses a different chipset), my problems are gone.
Other Thoughts: For the same price you can get a Rosewill. Most card readers are not very durable so consider them a disposable. As for this Sabrent reader, get yourself some nice craft made beer for the same price rather waste your time and money on this product.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bought it for use with latest release with Backtrack & it works fine. No problems with installing the drivers, reliable & stable. Great value for the price
Cons: None that I have encountered thus far. I received a USB stand for the base.READ FULL REVIEW
