Pros: The keyboard is awesome especially with the switches, my friends also like it. I like how it has a usb on it so I can plug in anything really. I think the media keys with the volume thing is nice also.
Cons: So the big problem I have with this keyboard and the reason I took an egg off and was thinking of taking another off is because after 3 months of using the keyboard, some of the backlight went out and what ever I tried did not come back and this keyboard doesn't have any type of warranty with out buying it so looks like I am stuck with some keys without a backlight. Other than that, I think the wrist rest could be a bit longer or so, atleast doesn't fit to how I would like it. Doesn't have any macro keys which doesn't matter to me because I have a gaming mouse with lots of macros. It also doesn't have any audio jacks on it :(.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: So this motherboard is nice, it was easy to install and everything into my case and connect everything. I didn't have any problems in this case. Not really sure what else I would need from it since it fits my needs. But I am not really here to talk how good it is, I think this is a nice motherboard but something is wrong with mine.
Cons: --This is semi a story, skip to the end to get a basic rundown of some problems-- So first day, my computer is built after all the parts came, I was all excited and I go to install everything. I was using Windows 8 and installed the drivers and then about half way through my computer would blue screen and everything on the hard drive was lost. I was so confused and I tried again. This happened multiple times so I just gave up. I then decided to install each driver individually (Note:These are FOR the motherboard AND Windows 8 COMPATIBLE) until my computer blue screened and I had to restart. I tried multiple hard drives on each one and finally I got to a point I could kind of use it normally (the problem wasn't the hard drive). Then next day, my friend also building a computer he has a cheaper MSI board and he has Windows 8 with the same drivers and has no problem with it (he has the same computer except for motherboard) and I was so confused. Since I was building a gaming computer, I have to play some games right? Well too bad any game I played would crash (blue screen) my computer in about 5 minutes of playing it one Windows 8 with a problem of "Drivers less or equal" or something. So I go out and buy Windows 7 because I would guess that maybe there are some bugs with Windows 8 drivers. I install everything and as far as I remember I had not as many problems (This was about 6 months ago) installing everything. But I am pretty sure I don't have all the drivers because there was a problem with that and they were all the intel drivers. I feel/am rambling on so I will get to it. My motherboard had problems installing drivers on both Win7/8 and it blue screens atleast every week. I finally got around to making this because I just got 2 bluescreens in 1 day and about like 5 this week (most I have ever gotten other than when I was installing the drivers). Yeah so I would recommend this motherboard if these problems are just my motherboard being faulty.
Other Thoughts: Wish I realized there was a problem earlier and RMA'd it or something but I have never RMA'd anything and I just wanted something to use. I have had this motherboard for 6 months and its problems have kept up. I got a total of 5 blue screens this week which made me get around to making this. Nice motherboard if it worked well. From how my friends is working I wish I went with his with it being cheaper and working (also by MSI).READ FULL REVIEW
