MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 FM2 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: NONE

Cons: Lasted three weeks or less!!

Other Thoughts: Like others here I also have the "no video" problem. On board video lasted about a week before it started giving me problems. I installed a compatible video card and that worked for a couple of days. I put this in a HTPC build and was using HDMI - but the other video ports didn't work either. I swapped out the memory and processor - no luck.
I can get it to post every now and then but it will lock up after a minute or two. Past the 30 day return with Newegg so I'm not even gonna mess with MSI RMA because of others here getting boards from returns that are still defective. I quit using Asus a couple of years back because of a bad board and the big runaround they gave me to try and RMA it, and now I'm adding MSI to that list.
Back to Gigabyte. Never had a problem with them (yet).

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: works as expected with no problems

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Bought this for an old athlon64 pc for the grandkids to play on and it works great!

Hauppauge WinTV (HVR-1265) Hybrid TV Tuner w/ Video Recorder PCI-E x 1
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I bought this tuner card awhile back when I decided to build my HTPC. I downloaded the latest drivers and software before installing and it installed in Win7 64 without any problems. It pulls in all my stations and works like a champ.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I read some reviews here before installing the card about getting the latest drivers and software first and like I said above it installed with no problems. The remote works great with Windows Media Center and turns your HTPC into a DVR with ease.
